WWE saw a big shift when Triple H took over for Vince McMahon in running the company’s television product. The Game brought back several people, and it appears that they were all locked down for multiple years.

Sean Sapp reported behind Fightful’s paywall that the recent WWE signees inked three-year deals. Also, it was reported that all three members of Hit Row signed matching deals.

Several of the talent brought back to the Smackdown brand are on three-year contracts that are set to expire in the Summer of 2025. Specifically, we’ve also heard that Hit Row have matching deals that expire around the same time, and are on those three year deals. Some of the talent brought back have representation and were able to negotiate different contracts.

It was also reported that, “several of the talent brought back were able to negotiate the ability to utilize some outside projects and platforms that they would not have been allowed to do at the time they were released.” For what it’s worth, it was also noted that many of those policies have “relaxed” since Triple H took control of the company’s creative direction.


The preparation for some of these returns has ranged everywhere from the day before they appear, to less than a week in the case of Kross and Scarlett, to a few weeks for Johnny Gargano, to well over a month for Anderson and Gallows. We have not confirmed that all of those named are on three year deals.

WWE is absolutely going through some serious changes, both internally and on their roster. Only time will tell what the company will be doing or booking in a year’s time. For now, we have this new crop of Superstars for the next three years.
