Backstage news on the current contract status of AEW star Santana

According to report from Fightful Select, Santana is still under contract with AEW, and has been paid through the time he has been out due to injury.

Fightful Select notes that a source familiar with AEW contracts said that if Santana’s deal was up last September, as he teased on his social media accounts, then AEW could try to keep him signed to the company just a few months past his return date for added time on his contract due to the injury. The report also notes AEW has paid Santana for over a year and a half even though he could have been “off the books.”

The report also notes that sources Fightful Select had spoke with, said that Tony Khan has been firm that the company will pay injured talent.
