Mojo Rawley Signs New Multi-Year Deal With WWE

Mojo Rawley has reportedly signed a new contract with WWE.

Per Pro Wrestling Sheet, the Virginia native has committed his future to the company. But aside from the deal being a "multi-year" contract, little else is known.

Rawley joins the likes of Mike and Mia Kanellis, who also recently agreed on fresh terms with Vince McMahon's promotion. The pair will remain put for the next five years and perhaps Rawley has penned a similar deal.

With All Elite Wrestling having emerged as a threat, WWE is said to be aggressively trying to tie down as many of their stars as they can. On the flipside, it has been reported that several superstars are already counting down the days where the contracts are concerned and are looking to jump ship.

Long-term, big-money deals are believed to be the contributing factor as contracts dwindle, so we can assume that any new deals which have been signed recently offered significant financial improvement.

According to Wrestling Observer Radio's Dave Meltzer, Mike and Mia likely got huge raises in pay on their new deals. It's also understood that WWE is offering more attractive pay scales and long-term deals in order to keep their talent from heading to Tony Khan's new promotion.

The Revival are also reported to have been offered five-year deals worth $500,000-a-year.

Rawley, who joined WWE back in 2012, got called up to the main roster from NXT four years later but has been seldom used. He has registered some notable wins since then, although he's never won any silverware.

Despite his poor usage, WWE has apparently made his re-signing a priority and maybe we'll be seeing more of him in time to come.

We can also expect the company to keep signing more stars to multi-year deals ahead of AEW's TV debut in the fall.
