A lot of professional wrestling fans are under the assumption that AJ Styles hates TNA because he refuses to do business with them again. However, when asked about why he turned down the offer to make a brief return and be inducted into the hall of fame, Styles stated that the decision had nothing with how he feels towards the company. He stated that the reason why he opted against it was because his home is now in ROH and New Japan.

During a recent interview, a very candid AJ Styles revealed that he had been contacted several times by TNA about making a return to the promotion. While the former world heavyweight champion did not completely shut the door on the possibility down the line, he stated that he was not going to be making a return anytime soon because he has found a home in New Japan. The belief is that Styles is using this as leverage in future negotiations.
