Below are a couple of top WWE news stories of the day.

• As WWE’s global presence continues to surge, Triple H finds himself at the helm of a bustling operation, steering the company through a whirlwind of success following WrestleMania 40. With sell-out shows igniting arenas worldwide, maintaining this momentum is paramount for the wrestling juggernaut.

Amidst the frenzy of activity, WWE’s television landscape is undergoing a significant shift, with flagship shows transitioning to new networks later this year and early next year. SmackDown bids farewell to FOX, making its home on the USA Network, while NXT finds a new platform on The CW, and RAW makes a groundbreaking move to Netflix in January 2025. These strategic maneuvers underscore WWE’s commitment to reaching audiences across diverse platforms.

As the company charts its course forward, securing key talent remains a top priority. Recent re-signings include performers like Drew McIntyre, Seth Rollins, and Sami Zayn, bolstering WWE’s roster with star power and versatility. However, looming contract negotiations add a layer of complexity to the equation.

At the forefront of these negotiations is Women’s World Champion Becky Lynch, whose contract status hangs in the balance. Another pivotal figure awaiting a new deal is Natalya, a stalwart of WWE since 2007. With a decorated career spanning multiple championship reigns, Natalya’s contributions to the company are undeniable.

According to Fightful Select, Natalya’s contract is set to expire in a couple of weeks.

Beyond her in-ring accolades, Natalya’s connection to WWE runs deep, with her husband, TJ Wilson, transitioning seamlessly from in-ring competition to a revered role as a WWE producer. Despite her impending free agency, Natalya has remained tight-lipped about her contract status, leaving fans and insiders alike on edge.

• On this Friday’s episode of SmackDown, Randy Orton will face Carmelo Hayes in the Quarterfinals of the King of the Ring tournament.

The finals of this tournament will take place at the King & Queen of the Ring premium live event in Saudi Arabia on May 25.

If Orton manages to win this tournament, then he will make history by becoming the oldest King of the Ring winner at the age of 44.

The current record for the oldest King of the Ring winner was set 38 years ago by Harley Race, who won the tournament at the age of 43.
