Two-time WWE Champion AJ Styles’ WWE contract reportedly ends in April of this year, which in case you haven’t realized, is pretty soon.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Styles is still yet to sign a new deal with the company, but has told friends that he will re-sign, and the overall belief is that he will.
However, it is also noted that Styles is Kenny Omega’s dream opponent, and a strong friendship with the Young Bucks means that although it’s unlikely he’ll join AEW, if he was up for it, they’d definitely be interested.
The Observer states:
“While Styles has not signed a new contract, and his deal with WWE is due shortly, he had told friends and all expectations are that he will sign. The basic gist regards his age, and the stability of WWE at this point in his career. Styles is Kenny Omega’s dream opponent and he’s good enough friends with the Young Bucks that they have talked with him when they were considering their own futures late last year. Those in AEW had not expected Styles to consider coming although they obviously would have wanted him if he was interested”
Styles lost the WWE Championship back on November 13 to Daniel Bryan, and looks to be heading towards a WrestleMania 35 match against 13-time WWE World Champion Randy Orton.
