Candice LeRae is one of the mainstays of NXT’s women’s division and also Johnny Gargano’s wife. With WWE releasing so many talents lately, many wonder what will become of Candice LeRae. It seems she might be sticking with WWE longer.

LeRae has been absent from WWE television for quite sometime now. This is because she is pregnant with her first child. As reported earlier, her contract was set to expire in the middle of next year.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE is likely to freeze Candice LeRae’s contract for the period of time she will be absent due to her pregnancy. This means her contract will expire in late 2022.

“Candice LeRae’s contract would expire in May, but the belief is that they will add at least from the period of time she was taken off television until the period she returns due to pregnancy as a contract freezing period and if they do that, that’s going to wind up a long time into the future and probably well into 2022.


We will have to wait and see just when exactly Candice LeRae will make her return to WWE television. Fans certainly miss seeing her team up with Indi Hartwell as well.
