WrestlingNews.co's report suggests that Vince is unhappy and wants to end their push.
Vince expected them to sign new contracts by now and they haven’t so this is what he wants to do with them. He wants to lock people in months before their contracts expire and if they don’t want to play ball then he’s going to push them as comedy guys.
