WWE Working Hard To Sign Major Star To New Deal

WrestleMania Triple H WWE

A major name in WWE has a contract that will be expiring soon.

While WWE is celebrating the success of WrestleMania 40 in Philadelphia as a show that broke many company records, there is no offseason or slowing down for the pro wrestling juggernaut.

In the days after WrestleMania 40, WWE underwent some significant changes in the Talent Relations department with names like Dan Ventrelle and Trent Wilfinger no longer in the company after having key roles before the biggest show of the year.

As WWE’s Chief Content Officer, Paul “Triple H” Levesque runs the company creatively on the main roster, but he also oversees the Talent Relations, Development, and Recruiting departments as well.

The pending free agency of former three-time WWE World Champion Drew McIntyre has been an ongoing story for the past year. The latest reports note that the talented Scotsman’s deal could be expiring within a few weeks.

Another big name who could be heading to free agency is former six-time Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, who has been with WWE for 11 years and is married to former World Champion Seth “Freakin” Rollins.

How Much Time Does Becky Lynch Have Left On Her WWE Deal?

According to PWInsider’s Mike Johnson, a source has told them that Lynch has about eight weeks left on her current deal, but Johnson wasn’t able to 100% confirm the accuracy of that claim.

It was added by Johnson that before WWE was acquired by Endeavor in the fall of 2023, it was rare for the company to let deals come this close to expiring. Based on their recent firings, it appears as though WWE will do its best to fix the issue.

At WrestleMania 40, Lynch lost the Women’s World Title match to Rhea Ripley. Prior to the event, Lynch did an interview making it clear that WWE was where she wanted to be.

“Growing up, WWE is what I watched, it’s what I loved, it’s the reason I became a professional wrestler. Now, having been in it, I love it. I love the people, I love the audience, and I love being able to being an important part of change. I love that I get to continue to drive that and that my voice matters in WWE.

I feel listened to, and I feel we’ve been able to change the landscape of women’s wrestling forever. That feels very special to me. It’s my home. It’s where I was born as a professional wrestler in many ways in terms of my influence, and it’s where I’ll retire.”

While Lynch is saying all the right things, agreeing to a new deal with WWE is another story and based on this report, it has yet to happen.
