It’s no big secret that WWE has no interest in letting any of their talents go at the moment, and it’s been reported that the company has denied several release requests over the last few months.
WWE is trying to get talents who have contracts that are coming up to sign longer deals, and it looks like that rhetoric also applies to NXT.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that new talents that are just joining the company are signing five year deals as opposed to the previous three year deals that were offered to beginners.
It’s being said that WWE is trying to lock talents in for a long time before they can test the free agency market.
The upside is that WWE is offering significant money, and the money is guaranteed.
