UPDATE: More details have been revealed regarding Candice LeRae’s WWE contract expiring. Fightful Select has updated their report to note that according to those within WWE, there’s no hard feelings between WWE and LeRae & Johnny Gargano. The site notes that Gargano was well-thought of in the company for putting over talent on the way out and doing a short extension to make sure his run ended well. Both Gargano and LeRae are said to be able to return to WWE if they choose to do so.

ORIGINAL: Fightful Select reports that Candice LeRae is now a free agent as her contract with WWE has officially expired. She joins her husband Johnny Gargano on the independent scene, as his deal expired back in December.

There is no word on an extension at this time, and according to sources, she is gone from the company. WWE moved her to the alumni section of WWE.com this morning. One source noted that if they had their way, freezing LeRae’s contract during her maternity leave would be “in her court,” but there’s no word if that happened. There are no 90-day non-competes for expiring contracts, so LeRae is free to work anywhere she wants if she’s up for it.

Since leaving WWE, Gargano hasn’t worked any matches but has been booked for autograph signings. The two welcomed their first son, Quill, back in February.
