WWE Could Renew CM Punk's Contract Without His Permission
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.13.2014
WWE may be able to renew CM Punk's contract with or without his permission. There is a clause in every wrestler's contract that allows the WWE to renew a deal if the wrestler has been injured and the company believes they are owed dates the wrestler was unable to work. If there are any dates left on Punk's contract that he had yet to work, the same would apply here.
There is precedent now as Vince McMahon renewed Rey Mysterio's contract when it was close to expiring. Rey Mysterio missed most of last year because of several injuries.
If WWE renews the deal, it allows them to keep CM Punk from working for another company. The problem is that they would have to keep paying him as long as he's under contract. His current deal is set to expire in July.
