As previously reported on eWn, negotiations between LA Knight and WWE have been ongoing regarding a long-term contract, which is believed to be for five years.
According to a report by Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select, the two parties have yet to reach an agreement due to them being far apart on money. While discussions are ongoing, no deal has been finalized, and it does not appear to be imminent.
A senior executive at WWE has refuted claims that Knight’s recent push is linked to a new contract, citing several wrestlers whose contracts are set to expire next year but are still receiving notable pushes. It is worth noting that Knight’s current contract with WWE still has over a year and a half remaining.
