• AJ Styles Says He Won’t Sign Another WWE Contract
Former two time WWE Champion “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles (who’ll turn 42 next month) recently signed a new 5 year contract and he doesn’t plan on signing another WWE contract after this one expires.
Below is what Styles said during a recent interview with Newsweek:
“I can tell you that this contract that I’ve signed is my last. This is the perfect place for me to be. It’s family-oriented, I have no problem taking my family to the shows. It’s a PG product, which I enjoy. I’m in the best place I can be for my career.”
Styles recently lost to Seth Rollins in a Universal Championship match at Money In The Bank 2019 PPV.
