AJ Styles' publisher has announced that his upcoming biography has been put on hold. David Dee of VIP Ink Publishing issued the following statement about the book's release:

"After months of board meetings between VIP Ink Publishing, L.L.C. and A. J. Styles both sides have come to the agreement to slow down on the release date of the book due to waiting on copyright approvals, a few more interviews, as well as the timing of the match for the Heavy Weight Championship with Bully Ray. We feel that the fans deserve nothing but the very best and that is what we intend to give them.

While we know this is a disappointment, we want the fans to know, we are just as disappointed as you are. As both sides continue to work diligently together, please keep a watchful eye to the website www.vipinkpublishing.com and A. J. Styles' facebook page facebook.com/ajstylesorg for more updates. As soon as we have a release date and cover layout, we will release another press release."
