|Hey Scott,Have you heard that wwe apparently offered AJ a deal with a downside that was 20% of his TNA contract? Do you think they did that to make a point about how much tna sucks or is that a accurate reflection of his market value? Would NJPW or AAA or cmll have any interest in him?Thanks|
I'm gonna have to call shenanigans on that one, because AJ's contract was never actually expired and he re-signed for a short-term deal. If WWE had offered him ANYTHING, then that would be contract tampering and TNA would have cause to sue their pants off. Unless of course HHH just offered them a title shot at Randy Orton in exchange for dropping the lawsuit. But that would be STUPID. Anyway, if true, yes that would be fair market value. Styles is completely unproven on anything resembling a national stage and has never drawn money on top. He's not getting any younger and would have to go through developmental for a year to learn the style, and by then he's pushing 40 and whatever small amount of name value he had from TNA is gone. If AJ was gonna jump, the time was 5 or 6 years ago. These days he's much better off taking indy bookings and possibly going to NJPW as you noted.
