AJ Styles says he has not signed a new WWE contract, despite reports to the contrary.
AJ Styles’ WWE contract is set to expire in just a few months. As one of the top wrestlers in the world, it’s no secret that WWE wants to keep him around. Especially with new competition from All Elite Wrestling (AEW), WWE will likely go to great lengths to keep the former world champion on their roster.
It was reported elsewhere over the weekend that Styles signed a a new 3-year deal with the company. Styles saw the rumor and said that’s news to him, since he knows nothing about the situation.
What was that? Are you sure? Please let me know the more because I know nothing about this. ? https://t.co/912V4k44uy

The belief going around is that while he is still in talks with WWE about a new deal, he’ll get offers from different companies like New Japan Pro Wrestling and All Elite Wrestling.
Although he’ll receive offers from other promotions, many believe that Styles will remain with the WWE if they can get him a lighter schedule, which is something that he has expressed interest in in the past.
