It turns out that not only will Adam Cole be staying under contract with WWE for the next few years, but also his fellow Undisputed Era members are also locked in beyond 2020.
It’s not a secret that since the launch of AEW and the promotion signing a television deal with TNT, WWE had been locking up talent to deals for five years. However, that mindset changed once the outbreak of the coronavirus began as the company has released several wrestlers.
Over the last few weeks, there had been rumors that Cole’s deal with WWE was slated to expire in a few months. That’s not the case as Pwinsider.com reported that Cole has over 18 months left on his current deal. For more on that, click here.
Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE made sure to sign a lot of the NXT key talent to new long-term deals which included all four members of the Undisputed Era.
Per the report, “They are not about to be free agents for a long time, as in multiple years from now.”
Cole, Roderick Strong, Bobby Fish, and Kyle O’Reilly have been top stars in NXT ever since they arrived in the promotion. They became a faction in 2017 and during that time, they’ve held multiple titles including the NXT Championship and Tag Team Championship.
