The WWE is set to be phenomenal for a few more years yet with AJ Styles signing a new deal with the promotion.

The 44-year-old has put pen to paper on a new multi-year deal that will see him earn around $4 million AUD ($3 million USD) over three years, according to Fightful Select.

Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported that Styles, who first arrived in the WWE after a lengthy career across multiple promotions, had the opportunity to go elsewhere, but chose to remain with the company.

The former WWE Champion also has some additional bus travel accommodations paid for as apart of his deal. A source within WWE said that Styles was "worth every penny" and "would easily make that back for the company."

Since making his debut at the 2016 Royal Rumble event, Styles has become a main drawcard for the promotion, holding multiple titles and facing off against legends such as John Cena, Randy Orton, Chris Jericho, and The Undertaker.

Prior to his arrival in WWE, Styles was the face of rival promotion TNA/Impact Wrestling for 12 years, winning their top championship multiple times, and would also have a brief stint in New Japan before crossing to Vince McMahon's promotion.

'The Phenomenal One' spent much of 2021 apart of a tag team with newcomer Omos but following their split earlier this year, he's now expected to make a big splash on his return as a singles wrestler.

Multiple insiders believe Styles could face WWE Hall of Famer Edge at Wrestlemania 38 in Dallas, Texas come April 2nd and 3rd in a dream match while there have also been rumblings the company could lure legend Shawn Michaels out of retirement for a match against Styles.

Signs the Edge match could come to fruition were only intensified during the latest episode of Monday Night Raw when 'The Rated-R Superstar' delivered a promo asking for a 'phenomenal Wrestlemania opponent', clearly planting the seeds by using Styles' trademark nickname.

Either way, Styles decision to sign a new deal is a positive for the company given his ties with many current All Elite Wrestling (AEW) stars and should point to the WWE having big plans for him come Wrestlemania and beyond.
