AEW has quite a few great performers on their roster. They also know the temptation that other pro wrestling companies can provide to entice those stars to leave.
WWE has been signing all of their Superstars to five year deals when they can. Rey Mysterio is the only recent contract to note that was shorter than three years. Of course, Brock Lesnar is always going to be an exception.
AEW is now signing some stars to even longer deals. Mike Johnson commented on PW Insider Elite audio that MJF did a radio interview in Long Island where he said that AEW tore up his original deal and gave him a five-year contract.
“Khan’s already looking at is like it’s going to be around because MJF did an interview, I think in Long Island where he said they ripped up his original deal and he signed a five year deal. They’re definitely starting to lock some talents into longer term contracts.”
AEW is planning for the future, but the honeymoon phase is over. 2020’s debut episode from Daily’s Place was a great example of the kind of show they need to continue presenting. It seems like they have no plans for the future except to carry on.
