Styles ended his long association with TNA in 2013 after his contract expired, returning to ROH (where he is a former Pure Wrestling and World Tag Team Champion).
In March 2014, Styles signed a non-exclusive deal with New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW), and took the promotion's top championship—the IWGP Heavyweight Championship, in his first match with the company.
In TNA, Styles is a four-time World Heavyweight Champion, having held the NWA World Heavyweight Championship three times and the TNA World Heavyweight Championship once, the very first TNA X Division Champion, while also sharing the record for most reigns (six) with Jay Lethal, a five-time World Tag Team Champion (4 NWA and 1 TNA), and a two-time Television Champion.
He is also the longest reigning TNA World Heavyweight Champion in the company's history.
Also, he is the only wrestler in TNA to have held every male championship owned and sanctioned by TNA at any point during the company's history. In 2010 he became the first TNA contracted wrestler to rank in at #1 on Pro Wrestling Illustrated annual PWI 500 list.
Between TNA, ROH, and NJPW, Styles has held seven world championships and 23 championships, overall.
It's a variation of the old "so-and-so gets all the breaks because he's a [email protected]" angle that "jealous" heels use against popular faces.
He also allegedly rented out a restaurant in West Hollywood on Monday for a date night with Lopez and a group of his closest friends.2.
