AJ Styles Reiterates That He's On His Final Contract, Says He Will Retire With WWE

To cap off a Phenomenal career...

Reigning WWE United States champion AJ Styles signed a new contract with the company weeks before WrestleMania 35. Though All Elite Wrestling seemed like a real possibility for him, due to the presence of a number of his old Bullet Club running buddies, he opted to stick around with his current employer for a few years more.

Having turned 42 earlier this summer, one might assume that Styles is winding down his days as an active wrestler. Indeed, he has gone on record before saying that this is his final contract.

Styles emphasized that sentiment once more during an appearance on Lilian Garcia's Chasing Glory podcast along with OC allies Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson.

Said Styles of the contract, "I had no doubt that you know this is what I was going to do for my career. It really was. And you couldn't have told me any different. And I can tell you that the contract that I signed, here in the WWE, is my last. This is it for me. This is where I'm going to end my career no matter what happens. I got to, you know? I want to be there for my kids."
