2024 is going to be very interesting time for WWE. They have several big deals running up, but they are also prepared to lay down some serious cash in the process.
We previously reported over the last day that Dominik Mysterio signed a new WWE contract a while ago. Rey Mysterio also inked a new deal, both believed to be five-year contracts.
Dave Meltzer commented on WWE’s contract situation during Wrestling Observer Radio. He noted that WWE is prepared to offer big-time compensation for those next deals, because they don’t want free agency to become an issue for them at all.
“I was told that WWE is looking at long-term deals with greatly increased compensation for the guys, because they don’t want free agents right now.”
Seth Rollins, Becky Lynch, Sheamus, Drew McIntyre, and others have deals that expire in 2024. WWE may want to do whatever it takes to keep those Superstars with them, and that will include opening up their bank account to write some big checks.
WWE is aware that Tony Khan is around, and he’s rich. He can offer Superstars a ton of money if they become free agents. The goal is to keep that from happening in the first place.
We will keep our eye on this story, and so many more, in the pro wrestling world, here at Ringside News. You never know what will happen next, and that is especially true when big money deals are a part of the situation.
