Update On WWE Contracts For NXT Call-Ups

An update on contract negotiations for recent NXT call-ups.

2020 has been a tumultuous year in WWE as COVID-19 has led to changes in the traditional way of doing business. This is true for recent NXT call-ups as the uncertain times led to changes in contracts for the former NXT stars when they shifted between rosters, as originally reported by Fightful Select:

Rey Mysterio To Face Roman Reigns For Universal Championship At WWE Hell In A Cell 2021

We'd reported last week that several of the NXT call-ups were finally being spoken to about new WWE contracts. This was in line with what they were told when they were brought up -- that the times were uncertain and eventually they'd negotiate new main roster deals. As mentioned, the money wasn't quite up there with what a lot of wrestlers were being offered to re-sign last year, but WWE has told several of those involved that they're open to re-negotiating after WrestleMania season next year.

Currently, WWE is gearing up for a WWE draft. Triple H has said he doesn't know where NXT fits into the draft. Learn more here.
