As expected, All Elite Wrestling has different contracts in place depending on the level of activity of wrestlers. Dave Meltzer broke down these different contracts in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer.
For wrestlers who work Dark tapings, they are signed to per date deals. An exception to this rule was Benjamin Carter, who is now under contract with WWE. It was noted that the majority of wrestlers who appear on AEW television has “one deal or another.”
Wrestlers who AEW publicly announces to signing with the promotion are given weekly guarantees. On Thursday, AEW announced that Jade Cargill had signed a multi-year deal and she would be included in this category.
