Candice LeRae's WWE contract expires, now a free agent

The former member of The Way is now a free agent.

Candice LeRae is now a free agent. 

Her profile on was recently moved to the alumni section and according to a report from Fightful Select, her contract has expired. 

The report continued to say that a WWE source stated, "If they had their way, the decision to freeze the contract during maternity leave would be 'in her court.'"

As her contract has expired, she is not under either a 30-day or 90-day non-compete clause that would prevent her from signing with another promotion. 

Along with her husband, Johnny Gargano, LeRae welcomed the birth of their first child earlier this year. Quill Gargano was born on February 17. 

The 36-year-old had been with WWE since 2017, having made her in-ring debut for the company on May 3 of that year. Her last match took place at NXT The Great American Bash on July 6, 2021. Along with Indi Hartwell, she dropped the NXT Women's Tag Team Championships that night to Io Shirai and Zoey Stark.
