Report: Becky Lynch’s WWE Contract Expires This Week

Becky Lynch’s loss of the Women’s World Title to Liv Morgan at King & Queen of the Ring has surprised many fans. They have quickly scheduled her rematch for RAW this week in a steel cage match, bringing her contract status into sharp focus.

Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select reports that, as of this morning, Becky Lynch and WWE had not yet reached an agreement on a new contract, although they have been in contact. It is unclear if a deal is imminent or if it will affect her match tonight.

Lynch’s current WWE contract is set to expire on June 1, which would make her a free agent unless a new deal is reached. Many in the industry expect Lynch to receive the largest offer ever for a female wrestler.

Beck Lynch Wasn’t Worried

In an interview with Chris Van Vliet before WrestleMania XL, Lynch stated she wasn’t worried about her contract status. When Ariel Helwani asked if she could engage with other companies, she replied, “Ahhh…I’m with WWE,” adding uncertainty about her situation and noting it is uncommon for her not to have a new deal as her current one nears expiration.

Helwani also asked if she felt offended by not having a new deal. Lynch responded confidently, “At this stage in the game, contrary to a lot of the thoughts in this book of where I was coming up, I am so confident in my ability and my worth. Nah, I’m not worried.”

Endeavor is handling WWE contracts differently, as seen with Lynch’s husband, Seth Rollins, who re-signed a new deal before his contract expired. It remains to be seen what will happen with Lynch, but she could become a major free agent in June if WWE does not finalize a new contract.
