Previous WWE WCW writer Vince Russo pointed out possible loopholes in the recently released WWE Superstar contract.
When someone is released from WWE, they are usually unable to work for another wrestling company for the next 90 days. For example, WWE released Bray Wyatt on July 31, which means he cannot work for another company before October 29.
say Dr. Chris Featherstone of Sportskeeda WrestlingRusso recalled how Steven Regal (aka William Regal) successfully removed the non-compete clause from his contract. He believes that the recently released WWE superstars can also bypass the terms of the contract if they are willing to challenge WWE.
“Chris, let me tell you something about 90 days,” Russo said. “Anyone can check it out. This is well-documented. When I was in WWE, Steven Regal played for 90 days. The judge dismissed it for 90 days because the judge said,’You can’t stop anyone from making a living. That’s it. It’s illegal. It won’t fly. The rich are allowed to work again immediately.”
