As known last week, it was revealed that WWE and LA Knight are in contract negotiations for a new deal, and some sources believe that the extension will be for five years.
It is noted that the deal is close to closing or has already ended. A follow-up report said that some of WWE’s initial offers were rejected, but no other details were given.
While Knight is currently being pushed, multiple sources maintain that WWE officials are waiting for a certain point before pulling the trigger on his push, and the initial report last week stated that the long-term contract is what WWE wants to be sure of before taking action. forward and push the Knight in a major way.
In an update, a new report from Fightful Select states that while WWE and Knight are in talks for a new long-term deal, sources within the company claim that elements of the original story are inaccurate.
It was noted that WWE and Knight had extended talks and a five-year deal was offered, but both sides were running out of money.
That said, this new report adds that no agreement has been reached so far and that a new agreement does not appear imminent, but that the two sides will continue to negotiate.
A top WWE official said there is no truth to the idea that Knight’s push is tied to a new contract. The source noted how a significant number of WWE talents have deals for next year and are still on TV.
WWE officials have been highly encouraged by Knight’s performance for some time now, and have reportedly noted how quickly he has developed a large following since arriving on the main roster.
