AJ Styles’ WWE contract set to expire in a few months

It’s been known for the past several weeks that several WWE stars’ contracts are set to expire. Per a report from PWInsider, one of those Superstars is former WWE Champion AJ Styles. The report suggests there has been a lot of talk about the WWE future of “The Phenomenal One.” Styles was not at the Survivor Series pay-per-view Sunday, either backstage or on the program. The¬†report also suggests there are no indications that he’s scheduled for SmackDown Live on Tuesday.

While there have been rumors going around that Styles is in the midst of contractual issues with WWE, Mike Johnson suggests he doesn’t believe that the be 100 percent correct. Some suggest Styles’ contract is up at the end of the year, but Johnson has learned Styles is under contract until April of 2019. Styles is, in fact, negotiating a new WWE deal and would make far more money with the company than he would anywhere else.

Styles has said in recent interviews that he’d like to work a lighter schedule, so perhaps that could be a part of the negotiations moving forward. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more…
