WWE wasted no time in getting AJ Styles locked into a new deal with the business.

Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select has actually now validated the story and revealed that The Phenomenal One has actually signed a new multi-year deal with the company. With Styles' contract set to expire later this year, WWE viewed re-signing him as a concern, as they didn't wish to take the chance on him speaking to other wrestling business.According to Sapp, Styles' new contract is "well over $3 million a year" and will likewise have some of his bus travel accommodations paid for. WWE sources informed SRS they believe that Styles' new deal is worth every penny which he'll easily make that money back for the company.
Is AJ Styles a first-ballot WWE Hall of Famer?
By signing this new multi-year deal WWE, it appears that AJ Styles will invest the rest of his wrestling profession with the company.Styles has actually already done basically everything a talent can do with WWE given that debuting at the 2016 Royal Rumble. The Phenomenal One is a grand slam champ and has completed against some of the biggest stars in the history of the business, including John Cena, The Undertaker, and Brock Lesnar.
If and when Styles decides to call it a profession, it should be a no-brainer for WWE to right away induct him into the WWE Hall of Fame. Styles' profession has actually been so impactful he might quickly heading any Hall of Fame class.
No one like him. He is genuinely a PHENOM in every sense of the word. A Hall of Fame career made over 30 years of hard work and devotion in @WWE. Congratulations, Taker.
