The value of AJ Styles WWE contract revealed
He looks a solid investment thus far
– It was long rumoured that AJ Styles would sign with the WWE after his NJPW contract got over. Styles was removed from the Bullet Club storyline when Kenny Omega and the rest attacked him.
Styles made his sensational debut at the Royal Rumble and had a very good showing before being eliminated by Kevin Owens. Styles was one of the hottest free agents before signing for the WWE and has been paid his worth.
Styles revealed before signing for the WWE that his next job would be where his family would be taken care of. It has been reported that the WWE pays AJ Styles $500,000. It appears that Styles’ plaudits in the independent scene and at NJPW helped him bag a good contract with the WWE. It also shows that one reason Styles signed with the WWE was for the monetary upside that accompanied his contract.
It was also noted hat the match on RAW between Jericho and AJ Styles was personally booked by Vince McMahon and it looks like Vince McMahon would want to protect one of his most prized assets. AJ has had a decent enough start to his WWE career and the fans would love it if he was given a main event push.
