Backstage Details on Contracts of Some of the Recently Signed WWE Wrestlers Brought Back

-- Ever since WWE underwent their huge leadership changes over the summer, the company has begun re-stockpiling talent, paying particular focus on bringing back wrestlers that were previously released under the old Vince McMahon led regime. This would include the likes of Karrion Kross, Scarlett, Dakota Kai, Dexter Lumis, three members of Hit Row, Bray Wyatt, Karl Anderson, Luke Gallows, Emma, and Mia Yim. Some of these talent knew well in advance that they were coming back (Anderson and Gallows), others a few weeks in advance (Gargano), some less than a week (Kross, Scarlett) and there were even wrestlers who only found out the day before.

-- According to a report by, several of these wrestlers have been signed to three-year contracts with an end date in the neighborhood of the summer of 2025. Hit Row for example are definitely on matching three year deals that expire around the same time. Some wrestlers were represented by a third party in negotiations and were able to obtain different conditions in their contract, including the ability to engage in outside projects or platforms that were seemingly impossible to do with the old regime. While things have loosened up quite a bit under Triple H, the rules of being able to use third party applications was something that was already being relaxed dating back to around WrestleMania 38.
