Fightful reports that wrestlers who have recently been called up to the main roster from NXT have not received new contracts as of yet. Usually, wrestlers who start appearing on RAW or Smackdown get higher pay, instead of what they make as part of the ‘developmental’ brand.

Many of the wrestlers are also working lighter schedules than they were in NXT before the pandemic started. Obviously that’s because WWE can’t have live events right now so their shows are limited to what they tape every other week.

The topic of extending contracts or offering new deals likely won’t be brought up until things “return to normal”, although WWE doesn’t know what their schedule will be when that happens or if live events will even return outside of TV.
