Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer, is reporting that AJ Styles has agreed with Ring Of Honor to an "Open Contract". While nothing has been signed as it pertains to a "Yearly" deal, AJ will now work with ROH and any other promotions that DON'T have Television Deals, this includes TNA.
To further back this up, Mike Johnson of PWInsider has gone as far to say that "AJ Styles will be a regular roster member of ROH".
With ROH now signing perhaps the 2 biggest free agents to deals (Or atleast verbal deals) with Chris Hero also joining. The loss of Davey Richards doesn't look as bad now.
AJ's dates now looks like this for 2014.
