Here are the notes and news items from the week in pro wrestling: TNA wrestler Kurt Angle will remain out a few more weeks with an injury.

• A.J. Styles, now 35, told the U.K. Sun he doesn’t plan to change his high-risk wrestling style. He also plans to release a book next year.

• The Rock is rumored to be appearing at the February “Elimination Chamber” pay-per-view.

The Local Corner: “The Nightmare” Ted Allen headlines the 12-member class being inducted into the TWA Hall of Fame on Sunday. The show begins at 1 p.m. There will be plenty of wrestling action in addition to the Hall of Fame ceremony. Regular ticket prices apply.
