Update on AJ Styles’ Situation, Hemme Does Flex Shoot, More

– Christy Hemme revealed that she was doing a shoot with FLEX Magazine earlier this week:

– TNA recently set an objective to try and uncover young talent. Going forward, they will be looking for younger workers to add to the roster.

– AJ Styles and TNA officials have been working on a new deal for a while now. They have yet to agree on a new deal but discussions are ongoing. There is a very real possibility that Styles will leave TNA and it likely will come down to money. Most people in TNA want AJ to stay but they will keep him only if it makes sense financially.

– Another wrestler facing a similar situation as Styles is Ken Anderson. Both sides are talking but the feeling is that it will come down to the wire.

    Ok so if they are ongoing discussions that means that he might stay or not and in my opinion if he wants to leave then why keep him there. And Mr Anderson is going through the same situation so if u want to keep them in TNA then TNA have to be on the ball and think fast on what they want and what they want to do.

  • Daniel_P1

    I’m sure TNA will pay Allen what he deserves, if not, they will definitely regret it. I also hope Anderson resigns with them too.

    • Poppy’s Hammer

      Re-signs :P, Resign=leave, Re-sign=staying 😀

      • Daniel_P1

        Thanks for the correction Lol you knew what I meant

    • Mrs. Ambrose

      I hope they can come to an agreement because if AJ leaves then they will have a hard time finding a guy to take his place

      • Daniel_P1

        AJ has been with TNA so long now that it be weird seeing him anywhere else. I guess we will have to wait and see.

        • Mrs. Ambrose

          it wil be interesting to see were he goes from here on out

        • Eric Chism

          AJ has done everything he can do in TNA multiple times. If AJ wants to really build a legacy in wrestling, he has to do it in the WWE. Style should be wrestling in front of thousands, not hundreds. If AJ does go to the WWE, he will have to start out in NXT like everyone else. Then, he will have to move his way up the card. Take Daniel Bryan for example. It has taken him several years to get into the main event spot. He worked his way up. He had incredible skills before, but he still had to work his way up. AJ could use some help on his promo’s. I have never enjoyed hearing AJ talk. He is especially bad as a heel. At this point, I don’t think the WWE will really chase any free agents. I think they believe that NXT is going to provide future stars. They don’t think they need to spend a bunch of $ on a guy like AJ. If he is available, I am sure WWE would make him an offer, but they wont chase him. The only guy I see WWE really going after with a huge contract is Sting. I think they would want Sting to wrestle, go into the Hall, and be a part of a Sting DVD. Other than that, I don’t think WWE will pay him huge money. It would still be more that TNA, but WWE would want AJ to wrestle way more often. WWE would want him to do a 200 plus date schedule just like most everyone else on their roster.

    • Mrs. Ambrose

      I think that Mr Anderson will stay withTNA

  • Hele

    If it was in 2010 and AJ was to leave TNA for WWE.Then maybe just maybe he could be a mid carder to main eventer at best.But in 2013?.With the stacked new talents like Shield,Cesaro,Bryan,PTP,Wyatt family,etc.I don’t think he would stand out in their zone.Just look at Christian for example.

    • Mrs. Ambrose

      The WWE have so many talents but i think that A.J. can stand out from the rest

      • Hele

        I don’t think so but if he does leave TNA.His safest option to further his career is to either wrestle in Japan or ROH for a few years and then return to TNA.Because seriously WWE will not use him well and treats him seriously at most mid-card level.

        • Mrs. Ambrose

          Yeah but it will also be interesting to see how well the WWE uses him and take him seriously

    • Daniel_P1

      AJ is one of the best wrestlers in the world today, he could easily be a main eventer in WWE

      • Hele

        Yeah a guy like AJ Styles comes into WWE and gets to hang with orton and cena.That’s easily insulting to the rest of the people like Bryan and Ziggler who work years in WWE.And besides he’s nearly 40?.If he was like a Goldberg or a sting or a Stone Cold then i can understand.But AJ Styles seriously?.The guy is a top star in TNA that brings in ratings like 1.0-1.5 at best?.

  • Bad News Bro

    Something I don’t hear a lot of people adressing, AJ Styles is 36 years old.

    How often does WWE sign new talent at that age? Anyone?

    • Mrs. Ambrose

      I get what u are saying who cares? he could still be a big deal u never know?

      • Bad News Bro

        If I were a WWE official, I care. I’d care a lot. Of course, you’d have to be legally retarded to believe that AJ Styles is not talented or that he doesn’t have a place at the top of any promotion. But, would you say he’s better in the ring than guys like CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Dolph Ziggler, The Shield, etc, all of whom are younger than he is, far more over than he is, and, let’s be honest, posses a hell of a lot more charisma than he does?

        There’s a big difference between veterans like RVD and AJ Styles. What it essentially comes down to is TNA doesn’t reach a fraction of the audience that WWE does. Yes, there will be a good number of people who would know who AJ Styles is right off the bat. But there’ll still be a significant amount of people who don’t because they’ve never watched TNA. Guys like RVD and Chris Jericho on the other hand, they’ve been around for years, going in and out of the WWE. And for those who are new to the product and don’t know who they are, WWE has an endless amount of footage of them that they can air in vignettes, as well as having the announcers constantly list off all of their title wins and accolades to hype them to this new audience. AJ Styles has NONE of that. He’s never been in WWE, so they own 0 footage of him and they have no major accomplishments to list, both of which are necessary in educating the audience that he’s a big deal. And it’s very likely that they won’t let him use the name AJ. And this is one of the few times that they wouldn’t be wrong in doing so. They’ve invested two years in AJ Lee, not just the woman herself, I mean the BRAND that is AJ Lee. The past two years, they’ve pushed her harder than any other female in recent times. It’d make 0 sense for them to throw all of that away for something as silly as a name. A name for a guy who’s never worked there before.

        And don’t read this the wrong way, I’m a fan of AJ Styles. Like many to all here. But we need to be realists. If AJ Styles goes to WWE, he does so with a clean slate. The only way he’d be able to elevate is with a gradual push right from the get go. And even then, by the time they have him positioned for the main-event, he’ll be closer to 40 than 36. And it would all come at the expense of the Daniel Bryans, the Dolph Zigglers, the Cody Rhodeses, and so on. It doesn’t make sense for the future, and that is why AJ Styles and WWE just aren’t meant to be.

        • Mrs. Ambrose

          But wrestler had successful careers in there 40’s

          • Bad News Bro

            Not unless you’re named DDP.

            Typically, when you’re 40, your spot is in one of two places. You’re either semi-retired and main-eventing the occasional big pay-per-view (Undertaker, Triple H, etc) or working a reduced schedule primarily to put over younger talent (RVD, Chris Jericho, etc).

            AJ Styles can do neither, as I said, he’s unestablished on WWE programming. He doesn’t have the drawing power to come in and main-event right off the bat and in the eyes of WWE’s audience, he lacks the credibility to really put anyone over, it’d just be plain ole jobbing.

            It’s VERY, VERY, VERY uncommon for a wrestler to come in at 40 years old and be re-established, especially in WWE. They did it with Tensai and look how that turned out…

          • Mrs. Ambrose

            ok but it could be very different

    • Eric Chism

      Dave Batista was around that age when he finally got to WWE TV. That might have an affect on the length of his offer, but I doubt that would scare them off.

    • jcice13

      yeah but he could still be a factor for 10 years, they just brought back RVD, how old is he and christian’s no spring chicken either, and regardless that both RVD and Christian are known names with the wwe fan base it wouldn’t take long for them to enjoy AJ’s abilities

  • JH

    I don’t think he walks in to the WWE and main events any time soon, they have their top guys, and AJ is good, but I don’t get the charisma and personality out of him that I see in WWE’s top stars, if he comes to WWE he’d probably be a Kofi type character who is just there to put on a solid match in the middle of the show. I may be underestimating him, but the past 3 years aside from solid matches I don’t see much else in character or personality with him that makes him must see tv.

  • dafo1126

    People are stupid to say that he isn’t good enough to be a main event superstar in the WWE he has been a long term reason to watch TNA and when I see him again and again I wonder why he is still there just because he would walk in doesn’t mean he doesn’t deserve greatness in the WWE id actually go as far to say as hws better than 90% of the roster juay because he is in TNA it doesnt mean he sucks. Sign him up!

    • Bad News Bro

      Please list one person here saying ANY of that.

      • dafo1126

        I didn’t say anyone did ive heard alot of people saying in the past and was putting my point across

        • Bad News Bro

          You guys are stupid to say that he isn’t good enough to be a main event superstar in the WWE…”

          Surely you can understand how one might assume that’s what you meant.

          • dafo1126

            I put that at first bro then read and it came of wrong and edited it you must have seenthe first re-read please

    • Hele

      Never i say he sucked.I think he is not WWE material.I say AJ Styles can’t be the next Punk or Bryan they are the successors to Cena and Orton soon.What WWE looks in someone to be a main eventer is not only because of a person’s talent or past accomplishments NO.What they are looking for in a person must be dedicated,must be hardworking (on the road 300+ days a year),have marketability,brings in money,(merchandise,ticket sales),be a good role model to the future stars of tomorrow.You think AJ Styles can keep up with all of that.I REALLY hope so but to be honest a big fat no.

  • Daniel_P1

    We can speculate, so many things can happen ..but at the end of the day it’s AJ’s choice..let’s wait and see. Regardless of what promotion he goes to, I’ll.continue to follow AJ’s amazing career.

    • dafo1126

      Good man!

  • Hele

    I am going to go with AJ styles to resign with TNA for a few more years.If not he goes back to ROH or wrestle in Japan.End of my opinion.

  • Devon

    I want him to come to WWE. I know he is getting old. But hey, Sting still wrestles and people want him to come to wwe

    • Mrs. Ambrose

      i agree

      • Devon

        I kinda want sting to come to WWE. He is like 55 but he can still go. I what him to face taker

        • Mrs. Ambrose

          Yeah that’s what everbody wants but they were talking about doing a match with Brock Lesnar Vs The Undertaker

        • Eric Chism

          Sting is 54, but will be 55 when Mania rolls around. I really want to see Sting have at least one match on the grandest stage, in front of 80,000 fans. Not the lamest stage, in front of a few thousand fans. Sting said that he came very close to being Takers Mania opponent in 2011. It just didn’t work out. I think Stings reason for not coming to WWE back when WWE bought WCW is lame. He said he did not sign because he saw The Rock make fun of Booker T, on Raw, before Summer Slam 2001. I remember the segment well. Rock ask Booker “Who in the blue hell are you? What are you going to be doing at SS, parking cars?” Sting says that the Rock “buried” Booker T with that segment. What Sting did not say was Booker T went on to main event that very SS with The Rock. Yeah, Booker T lost, but so what? It was a high profile main event with one of the biggest draws in wrestling history. I think WWE would have treated the Sting character a lot different and he would have been a huge star.

  • Drew

    ANY financial situation with AJ Styles makes sense. Give him whatever he wants!!!

  • Maddox

    WWE doesn’t need AJ Styles, They have enough talented wrestlers they should push

  • http://WWW.WrestleNewZ.com/ Bork Lazer Living Legend

    AJ And Anderson to WWE would be so epic. They’re both in my top ten of all time.

    • Eric Chism

      Anderson left the WWE under a cloud. I don’t think they would want him back. I don’t think he brings anything special either.

  • fireworks Ts

    This generation of wrestling fans are nuts, a lot of guys in the older day didn’t reach man event status until early to mid 30s. Rock,Cena,Randy Orton and those guys broke the mode. Plus its just a different era with no territories.

  • Damian Starr

    I think TNA would be stupid not to offer AJ whatever he wanted, seeing as he has given his life to them, it’s the least he deserves. Anderson I do like him but if they can’t agree then hopefully that’ll help this A8’s story finish all the quicker!
