AJ Styles and more to WWE Roster?
WWE have hit back at the huge rumours that broke over this past weekend; that several key NJPW stars are close to a deal with WWE. The company’s official website posted a news story on Tuesday night reporting that several wrestling news outlets have reported that WWE are close to signing the high flying TNA original AJ Styles, as well as other key Bullet Club members.
WWE.com quoted “Reports began circulating late Sunday that all four had reportedly given their notices to New Japan management. Fueling the rumors that Styles, Nakamura, Anderson and Gallows were WWE-bound was a series of tweets involving reigning NXT Champion Finn Bálor.”
The article on WWE.com, did not make any claims of the signing. Even stating that Triple H refused to comment on the matter. Naturally, if WWE are reporting the rumours it is very likely that WWE have infact placed deals on the tables for each of the superstars.
Amid the speculation that AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows had being signed to WWE Contracts, the latest development claim by F4WOnline suggests that whilst they have not being officially signed to a contract as of yet, there is said to be definite and solid offer on the table for them.
AJ Styles has reportedly given notice to NJPW but this could be a coy to potentially improve his options for work. He has also being pulled from future ROH events and advertisements which fueled the speculation that he was WWE bound.
When I first became aware of these rumours, it was speculated that they would “advance” straight away to the main roster rather than going to NXT beforehand. Whilst this may come as a surprise to many, in actual fact it makes logical sense because the main roster is very thinly stretched at the moment and rightfully so needs some exceptional talents like the guys to help sell the WWE product.
I’ll be honest, apart from Styles I am not overly familiar with these guys but should the speculation about them joining the WWE be true, then I look forward to seeing what direction their career takes because with AJ Styles alone, there are countless match potential opportunities there…imagine him versus Ambrose or Cena, just WOW!
As this story continues to develop in the coming days, we’ll bring you the latest as and when it happens.
What do you think of the latest potential signings to the WWE roster, who would you like to see them face…we’d love to know what you are thinking!
