Bill Behrens, the booking agent for AJ Styles, sent the following statement to PW Insider regarding TNA’s claims that the company had an agreement to re-sign Styles and bring in Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson:

No contract was ever finalized nor signed by the parties.

That I would need to be involved in the contract process was known by TNA prior to my involvement and understood by them.

TNA and its 1st lawyer did not present in a timely fashion a contract that accurately reflected previous discussions at all. That created great concern tied to past experiences. In that time and prior there was other interest and there were other firm offers on the table and other discussions.

TNA was aware of other interest and various conflicts. TNA was aware a final contract was required. It was creating that contract and controlled that timetable. Too much time passed early on. Other things came into play. No contract was ever finalized with TNA.

To suggest I make any decision for my clients is to misunderstand my role and diminish the role each talent has in making their own decisions, and insults the talent in the process.

ImpactWrestling.com has modified their statement released yesterday reflecting the comments made by Behrens
