• WWE Now Offering Even More Money To Sign Indy Wrestlers
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE is now offering indy wrestlers even more money to sign a contract with them.
The Observer reported the following regarding WWE’s plan:
“WWE has told people if you can show on paper an offer from another company, they’ll beat it, even double it on the spot provided you sign immediately.”
WWE is obviously doing this to prevent indy talents from signing with their competition (one of them being the newly launched All Elite Wrestling).
