Fightful mentioned recently that "contract season" was going to last longer, we have more evidence to back that up.
Apparently it will carry well into June, as Fightful Select has reported that one of IMPACT Wrestling's top talents will see his contract expire, unless an extension is met.
On the IMPACT Hard To Kill broadcast, Don Callis repeatedly mentioned to Moose that he was signed to a two-year contract in an effort to kayfabe get him to take it easy on Kenny Omega. Moose was announced as signing a multi-year deal in 2019, leading many to believe that this was a reference to Moose re-signing for another two years. As it turns out, it was simply storyline. Sources have indicated to Fightful that Moose's IMPACT Wrestling contract is actually up in June, making him a free agent at that time. As mentioned earlier this year, it's expected that there will actually be a steady stream of contracts coming due through the first half of the year.
Moose has been with IMPACT Wrestling since 2016, and became the only two-time IMPACT Wrestling Grand Champion before the title was unified in 2018. He also holds the record for longest reign and combined reigns.
