There were numerous WWE call-ups this year, but most of them after WrestleMania didn't get new contracts.
WWE brought up many wrestlers, and once the pandemic hit, their financial cutbacks were well publicized. However, that seems like it's finally changing.
We'd reported recently that many of the new NXT call-ups were not given new contracts as they were brought up to Raw and Smackdown. There have been several call-ups in recent weeks that we've heard of that were told that they'd be discussing new deals soon. WWE's rationale was that travel and schedule was already significantly reduced, and with cutbacks happening, there was no reason to offer new deals.
The money associated with these contracts is way, way below what wrestlers were being offered last year.
Fightful will have more information on the new deals in the coming weeks on Fightful Select.
