A number of former WWE Superstars are reportedly trying to exit their non-compete clauses.
It may only be June, however WWE have already cut over a dozen talents from their rosters amid their return the road. WWE usually hand released wrestlers with non-compete clauses preventing them from showing up in any other companies within a scheduled number of days.
According to Fightful Select, multiple former WWE stars have asked to forego their non-compete clauses, which last 30 or 90 days depending on whether they worked on NXT or the main roster.
It was added that the requests range from a few days being removed from their scheduled expiry, to them being removed altogether. WWE are also said to be receptive to this, and are more lenient than ever regarding non-compete clauses.
WWE‘s releases in April, which included names such as Chelsea Green, Mickie James, The IIconics and Kalisto are currently set to expire on July 14th, whereas the June 2nd releases which included names such as Braun Strowman, Aleister Black and Lana will end on August 31st.
