Candice became a parent when she gave birth to her and husband Johnny Gargano’s child last month. The two named their child Quill. She’s been out of active competition since then.

It seems that Candice will be parting ways with WWE as her contract is about to expire this Spring. Fightful Select reported that the two sides haven’t agreed to a new contract thus far. It is unknown if Candice decides to extend her contract.

Many fans took to Twitter where they voiced their opinion. A number of those fans wish for Candice LeRae’s AEW arrival. One particular fan tweeted out to say, “if aew loses Cody but gains swerve, Candice, Keith Lee, Johnny Gargano and Hardy I see that as an absolute win.”
