And that takes care of that. With WrestleMania 35 right around the corner, it kind of feels like a season finale for WWE. Things are starting to wrap up, even though they will pick up all over again the next night with the big Monday Night Raw episode. That’s not just the case on camera, as a bunch of WWE contracts are coming up. We now have two updates on such contracts, one of which we’ve been looking at for a long time.
Today, AJ Styles confirmed that he has signed a new deal with WWE, putting to rest any rumors that he might have been jumping to AEW. Styles has long since been rumored to re-sign with WWE and now he has made it official. In addition to this, according to PWInsider.com by way of 411mania.com, Sin Cara has re-signed with WWE after working on an extension of his previous deal. He has been out of the ring due to knee surgery, though he has been training at the Performance Center as he prepares for a return.

Styles can do a lot. Check him out against Shinsuke Nakamura last year:
And Sin Cara knows how to fight monsters. Check him out against Braun Strowman in an entertaining match:
Opinion: This isn’t so much of a surprise as much as it was waiting around for something to be confirmed. There was little reason for Styles to move to another company at this stage in his career as WWE would likely be willing to have him take a breather and have a lighter schedule. Styles can be in WWE as long as he wants and likely has a trainer’s job waiting on him whenever he wants. That’s what makes more sense than anything else.
What do you think of Styles recently? What should Sin Cara do upon his return? Let us know in the comments below.
