Aaron Oster of The Baltimore Sun is featuring an interview with AJ Styles where he talks about his departure from TNA and why he imagined he would retire from that company.

“No, I honestly thought I’d be the guy that TNA could say, ‘This is the first guy that we signed to this company, and he’s retiring from our company.’ And, man, what an awesome thing that would have been. So I never imagined I would leave that company, I assumed I’d retire from there. It sucks, but you can’t fix that now. I left the door open, but there’s so many things that are going on. That door has been closed as far as being able to tell that story, that this guy started and finished with the company. Apparently someone there thinks I was only worth a certain amount and it just didn’t work out.”
