5 WWE Superstars who are out of contract in early 2019
Just like with any sports team, WWE superstars are signed to exclusive contracts, tying them exclusively to Vince McMahon's company. Unlike in sports, however, the WWE doesn't have any major competition and this means that most wrestlers will look to spend the majority of their careers with the clear number one wrestling promotion.
Other factors, however, can play a role in wrestlers leaving the WWE, such as the company wanting to rid themselves of the wrestler, salary issues and retirement. This list will count down all the big name wrestlers that are out of contract in 2019.
Paige has had a tough 12 months. The WWE star had to deal with a public break up from Alberto El Patron and then aged just 25, the former champion had to retire from in-ring competition.

As one of the highest paid wrestlers on the women's roster, Paige's future in the WWE is currently in doubt
