— The TNA live event in El Paso, Texas brought in 1,000 to 1,200 fans. A previous house show report reported that there were only 200 fans when the individual who submitted the report arrived for the pre-show autograph session. This led to confusion about the show’s attendance, and some websites have mentioned that there were only 200 fans there. There were only 200 fans there with an hour before the show, but the rest then arrived shortly after.
— As we have reported in the past, AJ Styles’ current, short-term deal with TNA is set to expire in December. According to the latest reports, it appears highly unlikely that “The Phenomenal One” will end up in WWE after his short-term TNA deal expires. According to one source, there appears to be very little interest from the WWE side in signing the 36-year-old former TNA World Champion.
As noted yesterday here on the website, one person in-the-know in WWE went as far as saying there is “far less interest in AJ from the WWE side than a normal, rational person would think.”
As many saw on last week’s iMPACT! Wrestling, Styles has entered into a new storyline with the now storyline heel president of TNA, Dixie Carter, where he claims to be currently working without a contract. As noted, that is untrue, as Styles re-signed the aforementioned short-term deal with TNA which gets them through December. Where Styles will end up by the time that deal expires remains to be seen.
