There’s a reason for that. WWE is the biggest and most powerful wrestling promotion in the world but they are not the only game in town. There are several other promotions who can offer wrestlers national spotlights and that is something that some WWE Superstars might be interested in pursuing. WWE has some tools to keep its wrestlers around though and they are using some of them again.

According to Wrestling Observer Radio, while the exact terms of the new deals are not known, they are believed to be long term deals.

Opinion: This makes sense for WWE as several of its wrestlers have wound up in AEW or elsewhere recently.
