Former WWE Champion re-signs with the company for multiple years

WWE Logo

Former WWE Champion Jinder Mahal has signed a brand new contract with the WWE, according to a report by Pro Wrestling Sheet. The report suggests that Mahal has signed a 5-year long contract with the company.

Although Mahal hasn’t been heavily featured on WWE TV as of late, he’s a former US Champion and the 50th WWE Champion in his own right. It will be interesting to see how Mahal is booked in the next five years of his new WWE contract.

However, The Modern Day Maharaja is not the only one who has signed a long-term contract with the company. Mojo Rawley, Mike and Maria Kanellis are some of the Superstars who have agreed to 5-year deals in the past few weeks.

In order to prevent Superstars from jumping ships to AEW, WWE seems to be locking their talent for surprisingly long contracts and good financial deals.

    I don’t see that 5 years is “surprisingly long” in contract terms. Guys like Big Show, Mark Henry and Lesnar all signed 10 year deals when they first joined the company.

    While it is not known how long everyones contracts are, I would not be surprised to find out that the likes of Reigns, Rollins and a multitude of other stars who have been with the company for signifcant runs were or are on contracts of 5 years minimum.
