AJ Styles arrives in Japan; Scheduled to appear at Wrestle-1 event

Former TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles has arrived in Japan, and we understand he is scheduled to appear at a Wrestle-1 event this weekend.

The official Wrestle-1 Twitter account sent out this photo of AJ posing with the TNA championship belt that he took with him when he left the company several weeks ago.  TNA President Dixie Carter has made it clear that AJ Styles is no longer the TNA World Heavyweight Champion and is not authorized to defend the title.  A tournament is underway to determine a new TNA World Heavyweight Champion and continues next Thusday at our special Turning Point broadcast LIVE and FREE on SpikeTV.

We will have updates throughout the weekend on this situation and will attempt to get comments from Dixie Carter.
