WWE are finally ready to discuss new contracts with NXT call-ups, according to reports.
SunSport previously revealed that Vince McMahon's company was suffering from financial loss due to the coronavirus pandemic.
WWE have been without the revenue from live crowds and house shows since March.
That led to billionaire boss McMahon laying off a large number of both in-ring and backstage talents in a huge April staff cut.
And WWE had to halt on offering new contracts to wrestlers who have recently moved from NXT to Raw or SmackDown.
As well as the Covid-19 financial impact, the less chaotic travel schedule has also been cited as a reason for the lower pay.
Yet according to Fightful Select several NXT callups in recent weeks will be discussing new deals 'soon'.
Yet the report confirms that the money being associated with these contracts are much lower than what was offered last year.
While no wrestler was named, both Matt Riddle and Keith Lee have moved up to the SmackDown and Raw rosters respectively over recent months.
WWE's contract stance marks a huge change from the extensions the company handed out last year to avoid rivals AEW poaching their talent.
Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods and Big E all penned new five-year deals in December, while Paige, Randy Orton and the Miz also committed their futures to McMahon.
WWE are believed to have only dedicated eight per cent of its revenue towards salaries.
This is much lower than UFC fighters, who get approximately 20 per cent, with both being dwarfed by the near 50 per cent paid out in sports such as NBA and NFL.
