• AJ Styles On Why He Turned Down TNA Hall Of Fame Offer

While speaking on his Twitch stream, WWE Intercontinental Champion AJ Styles revealed that TNA IMPACT Wrestling wanted to induct him in their Hall Of Fame, but he turned down the offer.

Below is what he said:

“It was offered to me but I was working for ROH and NJPW at the time and I said, ‘I’m not doing that.’ I’m not going to a TNA event when I’m working for someone else, I didn’t think it was right, and I was still wrestling.

I always think it’s weird when people are still wrestling and you want to put them in the Hall of Fame. Wait until they retire. As long as I’m working for WWE, I definitely wouldn’t do it. Not saying I wouldn’t ever, but if I’m working for another company, I’m not doing it.”
