AJ Styles ‘returns’ to TNA to challenge Magnus

ajstylesBefore you get too excited, OK, yes, AJ Styles returned to TNA on Thursday night’s Impact, and he challenged new TNA World Heavyweight Champion Magnus to an undisputed title match, but …

The segment for tonight’s show and the match between Styles and Magnus that will air next week were taped in December.

That is, before contract negotiations between Styles and TNA broke down, and Styles, at least for now, signed for dates with Ring of Honor, beginning this weekend with an ROH TV taping in Nashville.

Styles, for now, is done with TNA. Tonight’s special guest appearance on Impact doesn’t change that.
