UPDATE: We can now confirm that AJ Styles and TNA are officially back in negotiations for Styles to sign a new deal with the promotion.
Apparently there is some talk that Styles may have already signed a new deal at some point in the last 48 hours.
As noted earlier today, Styles has at least nine known bookings with independent pro wrestling promotions between now and March, so if he were to re-sign with TNA, he is already committed to those appearances.
We should have more on this story in the near future as further information surfaces.
ORIGINAL: While this is just a rumor and should be treated as such, there are some who now believe that AJ Styles has re-signed with TNA and his public statement about being a free agent yesterday was a work.
A source said: “The statement Styles issued yesterday was a work, and a blasphemous one at that.”
Styles has agreed to appear at the UWE event on March 15, which is something TNA officials likely agreed to in order to continue the story that Styles is done with the company. He is also booked for eight other appearances in 2014. If this is a work, it remains to be seen if he cancels any of them or works the shows even after re-signing with TNA.
Again, take this strictly as a rumor for now.
