Big TNA News: Two More Departures, Third Coming Soon?

tna-aj-styles

The Wrestling-Online Newsletter is reporting that two more TNA wrestlers are leaving the company as Devon (Devon Hughes) and TNA Knockout SoCal Val (Valerie Wyndham) have announced their departures. After getting pinned in the main event of last night’s Impact, the stipulation stated that the man who was pinned would have to leave the company and the storyline has seemingly paved the way for Devon leaving the company. Devon commented on Twitter, saying “Thank you to all the fans in TNA for 8 great years. Whether you love me or hate me, I had a blast. U guys rock!!! O TESTIFY!!! GOOD BYE!!!” SoCal Val was one of TNA’s longest-lasting employees, but the Knockout has opted to depart the company after nearly eight years and SoCal Val commented on her departure via Twitter, “Really excited to see what’s next.”

Another longtime mainstay in TNA is AJ Styles (Allen Neal Jones), who has been with the company since 2002, virtually holding every championship available to him. While AJ is still contracted to TNA, his contract is expiring next month and PWInsider is reporting that Styles is asking for more money if he does decide to re-sign with the company. On his Facebook page, Styles is asking fans where he should go next, listing TNA, WWE, ROH, and Japan as the options. Styles’ request for more money may lead to his departure, however, as TNA has notably been having financial difficulties lately and have been letting talent go left and right to try and save some money.

Should AJ Styles stay with TNA or go elsewhere? Post your comments in the box below.
