Another big name has a contract set to expire in 2024.
Fightful Select has learned that longtime WWE Superstar Sheamus currently has a contract set to expire with WWE in 2024. This is the case with numerous stars, including Becky Lynch and Drew McIntyre. We’re told by WWE sources that it is believed his deal is up in the first quarter or first half of 2024, though that period isn’t confirmed. Pro wrestling deals have a lot of caveats that could extend that.
WWE signed a ton of wrestlers to new five-year deals in 2019, but even several that were negotiated after that period are also up in or at the end of 2024, as well.
Sheamus is a decorated star within WWE, winning four World Titles, a Royal Rumble, Money in the Bank and King of the Ring, in addition to wrestling in a title match at WrestleMania.. He’ll be 46 when he reaches potential free agency.
Sheamus has been sidelined with a shoulder injury that could cause his deal to be extended.
We’ll be revealing many more that are expiring over the next year here on Fightful Select soon. The year is shaping up to be one of the biggest potential free agent years in wrestling history.
