Sources: The Baltimore SunAaron Oster of The Baltimore Sun has a great lengthy interview with AJ Styles. Here are just a few highlights:
The state of TNA right now:
You know, I really don't know. I know they've made a lot of cuts. That must mean they're not doing so well. Sting gone, Hogan gone, myself gone, and I'm sure we're going to see more cuts soon. From what I've heard and been told, it's been horribly mismanaged as a company. I don't know if they're going out of business. But they're definitely doing things that make people think they're going out of business. And I hope they don't. I hope TNA doesn't go out of business because I have a lot of good friends that work there and deserve to be in the national spotlight. My hope is that they never go out of business.
If he would return to TNA:
I tried to leave the door open. I haven't buried the company. Like I said, I have friends there who do well, so I'm not going to do that. But I don't know if I'll ever go back, and it's definitely not going to be any time soon. And from what one of their higher ups said, it will be "Only if there's space available for AJ Styles." So I guess there might not be room for me, according to him.
Jeff Jarrett's new promotion:
It's nuts to think that we could have four major wrestling promotions in the United States. Jeff's very smart, there's no doubt about it. He knows what he's doing, and always has a backup plan. He took TNA from nothing and turned it into something that's still around 12 years later. That's pretty darn good. That's an accomplishment right there. I trust Jeff. I trust him to put on something good, and something that people will watch.
If he would consider joining Global Force Wrestling:
Sure, this is what I do. This is my job.
Much more is contained in the interview, including Styles discussing if he ever saw himself leaving TNA, working for ROH and New Japan, wrestling in Baltimore and more. You can check out the full interview by clicking here.
