After parting ways with WWE last year, marking his second release from the company, Top Dolla has embraced the situation with resilience. He has continued to stay engaged in the professional wrestling scene while exploring other opportunities. He has been part of TNA Wrestling for a while and now it appears he has signed a deal with the company.

The former WWE Superstar wasted no time making an impact after he made his debut at GCW. Now known as AJ Francis, he would also become star in TNA Wrestling, something that he appreciates Scott D’Amore for.

According to Sean Ross Sapp behind Fightful’s paywall, AJ Francis has secured a new contract with TNA, extending his tenure throughout 2024. Impressions of Francis have been positive since his arrival, particularly following his introduction by ECW/TNA legend Tommy Dreamer.

Under the terms of the contract, Francis retains the ability to work with NJPW, NWA, and MLW, while abstaining from involvement with WWE or AEW.


Following his release from WWE in fall 2023, his second departure from the company in recent years, Francis has embarked on feud with Joe Hendry and joined forces with Rich Swann since joining TNA, so we will have to wait and see how he will continue to booked in the coming months, now that he is a long-term TNA star.
