WWE Superstars Being Told Existing Contracts Will Be Doubled

All Elite Wrestling has officially launched and WWE is already feeling the heat because for the first time since WCW folded wrestlers have many options available to them outside of the company. ROH paid a significant amount to sign Rush and New Japan has locked some of their talent in with longer contracts

AEW has the backing of Tony Kahn and is able to offer massive contracts to sign big names. In the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer is reporting that the WWE told its superstars that if they can show that they have received an offer on paper from another company then the WWE will not only beat it but double it on the spot if they sign WWE's deal immediately

Apparently, WWE did not offer enough to sign Chris Jericho because he is signed to a three year deal with AEW and says the deal is the best one he's ever signed

Meltzer also adds that McMahon is trying to avoid the idea that people want to leave and don't want wrestlers thinking they can make better money by going elsewhere
