The Status of Certain Wrestling Contracts

By Soul Tsukino · Monday, October 2, 2017 · 0 Comments

The website Fightful recently posted a listing of when certain contracts in the different companies are set to expire in the near future. Here is what the have listed:

Brock Lesnar: After WrestleMania 34
Mauro Ranallo: June 2019 (recently re-upped his deal)
Daniel Bryan: September 2018
Paige: 2019
Big Show: February 2018 (though is also injured and is having surgery on his hip)

Young Bucks: Through 2018
Jim Ross: January 2018 (with AXS, not NJPW)
Jay Lethal: Through 2018
Kenny Omega: January 2018
Rocky Romero: January 2018
Flip Gordon: Spring 2018
Punishment Martinez: In extension talks

Impact Wrestling:
EC3- Summer 2018
Moose- July 2020

The Impact contracts don't seem to mean much as a number of stars leave the company before their contracts were up anyway. With Jeff Jarrett taking an "indefinite leave of absence" rumor has gone around Anthem may be looking to let people go anyway.

The site also lists Lucha Underground's Prince Puma as "90 days past the season 3 finale" but seeing as there won't be a Season 4 that may go for everyone on the roster, but might not be enforceable if the company goes out of business. Also, Prince Puma is played by Ricochet, who works for New Japan and is currently one-half of the Junior Tag team champions with Ryusuke Taguchi.
