According to Styles, his turning point with TNA came when the company ran into financial issues due to poor management.

“I take a lot of pride in what I do in the ring, but at the end of the day, if I’m not supporting my family, then why am I here? And so, it came down to a money issue and they were having problems, but that isn’t my problem. I contributed the best I can and did everything I could to help make TNA a good company that people would want to work for and they abused their money terribly. They just didn’t know how to manage their money and so they basically, after I won the championship, and we knew, we were in negotiations, and we just extended my contract till December. My contract was up in August. We extended it till December.” Styles recalled, “I mean, my contract was up, but I was done negotiating. Yeah, it was a scary thing because this was the job I had for 11 years. And I just felt like it was the right call. I wasn’t sure where it was going to lead, but it was the whole principle of the thing, that you can’t just treat somebody like that and think that they’re going to stand by your side. And despite the money that they may or may not have come up with, it was just, ‘you know what? I’ve got to move on.’ It was scary.”


– After news hit about the shoulder injury Bayley sustained on this week’s Raw, Finn Balor sent out some words of encouragement, along with a few photos. Bayley’s status to face Alexa Bliss for the Raw Women’s Championship at SummerSlam is currently up in the air.
