AJ Styles Comments on Daniel Bryan’s Retirement

During a recent interview with Rapzilla, AJ Styles discussed a number of different topics, includingDaniel Bryan‘s recent retirement. Below is what he had to say:

“We had unbelievable matches and selfishly I was hoping I’d have the chance to wrestle Daniel Bryan and have one of those classic matches that we had years ago. I know we could definitely do that. It’s unfortunate what had happened and he handled it better than I handled it. That was very emotional for him and he seemed pretty strong and confident that everything is going to be ok. A class act. I can’t say enough great things about him.”

PWInsider.com is reporting that TNA Wrestling’s lawsuit against Scott Steiner has officially been dismissed.

The website notes that the case was dismissed by a judge at the Chancery Court in Nashville, Tennessee, on February 22nd, noting that the case was being dismissed “with prejudice.” This means that TNA Wrestling is barred from re-filing the lawsuit against Steiner and reopening the civil case further down the road.

Steiner was initially sued by TNA Wrestling back in 2012, with the company claiming that Steiner breached his contract (which had expired by then) when he made “disparaging remarks” about the company itself, Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff, Bruce Prichard, and other individuals within TNA Wrestling. The company sued Steiner seeking damages, as well as an injunction to stop Steiner from speaking out.

Steiner responded to the lawsuit, denying the following:

–That he ever agreed to not disparage the company
–That speaking out against the company would be considered a breach of his contract with them
–That he was involved in any kind of a “concerted effort to disparage” TNA Wrestling and their officers
–That he ignored requests to cease his comments
–That he was in a legally binding agreement with TNA Wrestling
–That the company suffered any damages as a result of his actions

Steiner then stated that he was offered a new contract with TNA Wrestling, but decided to turn down their offer.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
