• AJ Styles’ New WWE Salary Revealed
According to Fightful Select, RAW Superstar AJ Styles is making $3 million per year under his new WWE contract.
This could be AJ’s final contract as a wrestler, as he 44 years old:
“We weren’t given a time length, besides the fact that it was a multi-year deal.
His original contract was set to expire in the Spring/Summer, and would have had him hit free agency for the first time since leaving New Japan Pro Wrestling.
WWE expected Styles to have plenty of suitors, and we’re told that as in the case with some other big names in the company, wanted to get Styles’ deal extended before he could even hit free agency to talk to anyone else.
Styles is said to be very happy in the company, and has mentioned numerous times that he’d like to work for WWE after his wrestling career.”
During a recent interview with Wrestlinginc, Styles had the following to say about his new contract:
“It was easy. I want to be here, this is the place for me. If they let me I will retire here, I hope to work in WWE in some capacity when I retire. I enjoy what I do.”
When asked if he’ll like to have a role similar to that of Shawn Michaels in NXT / WWE Performance Center, Styles replied:
“I would love to have that opportunity. I love to see people be successful, and having a hand in that to me, it would probably be the best thing I could do in my career. But, I don’t know that I’ll get that opportunity, I am just saying.”
