During a recent Twitch stream, A.J. Styles confirms that he had talks with AEW prior to their Dynamite debut. Here’s what he had to say:
Yeah, there were talks. Look, it’s a business. My contract in WWE was going to expire and there were talks happening. The Bucks are my buddies. We never discussed money or anything, but there were talks about coming in. Again, it’s all business.
