The Miz and Paige have signed new multi-year contracts with WWE

The Miz

With All Elite Wrestling snooping around in the world of wrestling, WWE are looking at locking down any talent whose contracts are expiring to new deals.

Last week saw the announcement that Randy Orton had signed on for five more years as a WWE superstar, following speculation earlier in 2019 that he would be willing to talk to AEW about jumping ship.

It's thought that Luke Harper, Matt Hardy and both members of The Revival are the superstars whose deals are expiring next in early 2020, so WWE will be worrying as to whether or not any of them will want to stick around once they run out.

They have managed though to tie down two people this week to longer deals - one of whom already had three years left of their current contract.

Despite signing a deal until 2022 last year, The Miz has penned a new multi-year contract with WWE.

The former WWE Champion has been sparingly used since Clash Of Champions in September, and didn't travel to Saudi Arabia for Crown Jewel a couple of weeks ago.

The Miz may have father duties right now, but WWE have still extended his contracr

His wife Maryse did give birth in September though to their second child, and it's possible that Miz may not be around every week as he juggles his life as a wrestler with his responsibilities of being a father.

He is though an important man for WWE in terms of publicity and reality television, so locking him down for even more years will be seen as good business.

The other talent to have their deal extended by WWE yesterday was former Divas Champion Paige.

The Brit retired from the ring in 2018 after suffering another neck injury, and immediately became the General Manager of SmackDown for the rest of the year.

Paige has also extended her deal with WWE for a number of years

Earlier in 2019 she became the manager of Asuka and Kairi Sane - the Kabuki Warriors - until she underwent another neck surgery, and not long after she returned the Japanese duo turned on her, writing her off television.

She's now a key part of the WWE Backstage show that is produced by FOX on Tuesday nights, and WWE no doubt see big things for her away from the ring as they've convinced her to pen another deal.
