AJ Styles Has New Contract

From WrestlingInc.com

As noted earlier, PWInsider reported this morning that AJ Styles signed some sort of deal with TNA, however it was not known if it was a short term deal or a long term one. According to F4WOnline.com, Styles signed a three month contract extension with the company. The report also noted that his promo on last night’s episode of Impact Wrestling was his idea, and TNA had no input into the angle. We also noted that WWE is not interested in TNA talent right now. There have been a lot of TNA stars contacting WWE over the past couple of months, and the company has shown no interest, feeling that they have enough homegrown talent. The one former TNA star that they have been speaking with is Matt Morgan.

WWE Re-Post’s AJ Lee’s Raw Promo Due To Viral Success With Popular Hashtag

aj lee reality promo

The official WWE YouTube channel is capitalizing on the continued viral success of AJ Lee’s promo from this week’s Raw. The promo was already included with the end of the divas match but as the popularity of AJ’s promo continues to grow WWE has re-uploaded it without the divas match ending and left the commentary by Jerry Lawler and Micheal Cole at the end. They have also taken advantage of the hastag #PipeBombshell: The new video title reads #PipeBombshell: AJ Lee blasts the stars of ‘Total Divas’

The promo which went viral on twitter almost immediately has been compared to the 2011 promo by CM Punk where he “broke the fourth wall” discussing how he had been misused by WWE creative and other taboo “secrets” about the wrestling industry. While AJ Lee’s was obviously more scripted, it was clear that the WWE was trying to generate much of the same reaction. It appears that they were successful.

Among other realistic lines AJ Lee said during the promo none were probably more powerful then when she told the ‘Total Divas” stars that they were on reality television because they didn’t know how to act. This was a nod to the known fact that these performers portray characters and ring personas often times drastically different then their real life personality.
