AJ Styles‘ WWE contract comes to an end this year and there were a lot of WWE rumors that indicated that he was considering leaving if he could get a better deal elsewhere.
With Styles serving as the world champion on SmackDown Live — the best WWE world champion on both brands based on his work schedule and performance — he is a priority for the WWE
The WWE offering AJ Styles a great deal
According to Cageside Seats, AJ Styles is expected to not only sign a new deal to return to the WWE but he is expected to sign a deal that will keep him in the WWE for a “number of years.”
Now, this might mean that the WWE sees AJ Styles less than they have for the past few years. Styles has mentioned that he wanted to lose his world title because he wanted more time to spend with his family.
There is a chance that Styles gets a reduced schedule in the new WWE contract. Styles is 41 years old and is at the age where wrestling bodies start slowing down — especially considering his wrestling style.
AJ Styles is a high-flyer and it is amazing that he still goes at the level that he always has, but he has to slow down some as he gets older to prevent injuries that come with age.
AJ Styles current WWE deal
AJ Styles current WWE contract is good until April, which means he is locked up until at least WrestleMania 35. What the WWE has planned for him is anyone’s guess.
With All Elite Wrestling starting up, there were a lot of rumors that they would target AJ Styles and they might have the money to do so. They would also promise less road time and are located in Florida, while Styles lives in Georgia.
However, if WWE wants to hold onto AJ Styles, they have the advantage here. He has been a superstar for them and they will do whatever it takes to keep him in the company.
