PostSubject: AJ Styles Reveals Working the Indy Scene is Much More Lucrative Than TNA   Thu Jul 24, 2014 7:19 pm

Top free agent AJ Styles recently appeared on Wrestling Observer Radio, and during the interview Styles revealed he has already made more money in 2014 than he would make in the entire 2014 year working with TNA Wrestling.

Styles added that by the end of this year, he can make as much money working the indys as he made with TNA back in 2013, as his previous TNA deal was much more lucrative than the final deal he was offered by the company. Estimates claim Styles’ previous TNA deal saw him making $350,000 per year, but the final deal he was offered by TNA, to remain with the company, would have seen him take a pay cut to $250,000 per year.

Styles added another major perk of working the indy scene is the promotions will pay his hotel and travel expenses, which is something TNA did not do for Styles.

Yes, as an overall the indies pay better than TNA. But pay/show ratio they don't compare. We all know this already.

Depends on how much they're being paid per show.

Lot more rigorous travel sked. On the other hand, more than 100 people at most of the shows.

I'd imagine it's because he's a massive name to be on the indies. Others won't get close to this.

I wouldn't take 100K less to stay with a company that wasted my prime years trying to build around Jeff Hardy, Ken Anderson, and Rob Van Dam either. I aint bothered

And he should try to make as much money as he could get. It's not like you could wrestle forever.

He's the 'indy top guy' flavor of the month. We'll see how long he gets those kind of paydays. Chris Hero is making good coin there now, too, but sooner or later someone else is the hot name returning to the indies and ...

If El Generico left NXT, he'd get all the big billings and payouts.

Lets be honest, Chris Hero is not AJ Styles. If he were on the WWE main roster and did something with his time there, then id say hed be making good money coming out of a WWE release.

Well he's also working dates for New Japan and they're bigger than TNA.
