A new report has given an update on the contract status of Candice LeRae.

The update is of particular interest as it was recently revealed that her husband, Johnny Gargano’s deal expires on December 3rd. In addition, Gargano and WWE are yet to begin negotiations but are expected to “in the Fall.”

With regard to Candice LeRae, a new report from Fightful Select notes that her deal doesn’t line up with Gargano’s but expires sometime in 2022. Her deal also hasn’t been frozen due to her pregnancy as she remains an on-screen character.

“Fightful was told by NXT sources that she insisted on remaining on-screen as long as she plausibly could, and that NXT has been happy with her performance both in and out of the ring.”

Meanwhile LeRae and Gargano have revealed that they’re expecting a baby boy.

The happy couple broke the news on social media as only they can. In the video, Gargano is playing with the couple’s dog Pawdme and a “balloon he found.” Candice was less than impressed with Johnny’s new game, explaining that it was the gender reveal ball.

Gargano questioned why his wife hadn’t gone with any of his ideas which included a stork or a prison. While Candice wasn’t convinced by either suggestion, Gargano revealed that he had a ‘Stork guy’ called Mork who is “the best in the business.”

After Johnny threw the ball to Candice, she juggled it briefly and Pawdme ran in and popped it covering Mrs Gargano in blue powder, much to the excitement of the proud father.

Candice LeRae signed with WWE in 2017, before going on to compete in the Mae Young Classic. In early 2020, LeRae joined forces on screen with her husband helping him defeat Tommaso Ciampa. Over the next few months, the pair added Indie Hartwell and Austin Theory to the group, becoming ‘The Way.’

LeRae and Hartwell won the Women’s Tag Team Championships in May 2021.
