WWE News: New NXT Talent Being Offered Longer Contracts


— According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, talent that is being signed to new contracts with NXT are now getting five-year deals instead of the previous three years for newcomers. This is likely in an attempt to lock people up for a long time before they can test the free agent market. The only exception for new wrestlers coming in seems to be for guys like Rey Mysterio - who are already established and have leverage - and are able to come in on shorter 18-month or two or three year contracts.
