In a recent interview with Inside The Ropes, former TNA World Heavyweight Champion & current IWGP Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles was asked about working for WWE NXT in the future & he indirectly admitted that he is willing to work for WWE if the offer is right.
Below is what he said:
“The first thing I’m gonna do is what’s best for me and my family, that’s what I’m gonna do. People know I was in TNA but I don’t think people think of me now as ‘The TNA Guy’ Now they see me as a New japan guy or a Ring of Honor guy.

I had to work to make sure I wasn’t known as a TNA guy to get my product, being AJ Styles, out there again but at the end of the day like I say, whatever’s best for me and my family I’ll do. This is a business.
Despite what people may think “AJ left TNA” this is a job. I thought I deserved a little bit more for all the effort and stuff into, you know any business, and to not get paid what I think I deserve would be dumb.
You don’t work hard to take a step down, you work hard to take steps up. I went out and found a step up in the wrestling business and if there’s another opportunity to step up, then I’ll do that.”
