AJ Styles' Agent Issues Statement On TNA Situation

In an update on the situation between TNA and the WWE-bound AJ Styles, Styles' agent and lawyer Bill Behrens issued the following statement to PWInsider:

No contract was ever finalized nor signed by the parties.

That I would need to be involved in the contract process was known by TNA prior to my involvement and understood by them.

TNA and its 1st lawyer did not present in a timely fashion a contract that accurately reflected previous discussions at all. That created great concern tied to past experiences. In that time and prior there was other interest and there were other firm offers on the table and other discussions.

TNA was aware of other interest and various conflicts. TNA was aware a final contract was required. It was creating that contract and controlled that timetable. Too much time passed early on. Other things came into play. No contract was ever finalized with TNA.

To suggest I make any decision for my clients is to misunderstand my role and diminish the role each talent has in making their own decisions, and insults the talent in the process.

When asked by Adam Martin of Wrestleview.com if the TNA press release will interrupt any scheduled debut plans and contract discussions with WWE, Bill responded, "I believe TNA has only looked stupid so far."
