According to an inside source, contract negotiations between President Mac, the EWC, and the married couple of Luke and Jessica "Annabelle" Wolfe have reportedly stalled. Both Luke and Annabelle are in the final year of their respective contracts, set to expire on January 1st 2019. Our source tells us that President Mac wanted to lock up Luke and Annabelle with new long term exclusive contracts to the EWC, prior to the expiration of their current deals. Our source also reported that the Wolfe's and the EWC are very far apart on an agreement and it was the Wolfe's decision to end negotiations with the EWC.
Luke and Annabelle Wolfe "walked out" in the final months of their contracts, and President Mac chose not to take legal action against them out of respect for what they have done for the EWC, with the hopes of some time away could convince the two to sign new deals before their current contracts run out.
Luke Wolfe is a former EWC Undisputed, X-Division, United States, and Tag Team Champion and has spent his entire career with the EWC, but was clearly upset with the EWC Front Office, fallowing what he felt was a controversial finish after his unsuccessful attempt to become a two time Undisputed Champion when he lost to current Champion Undisputed Champion Candy. The fallowing Rampage he made the decision for he and his wife to walk out on the remainder of their current deals. Jessica "Annabelle" Wolfe made major waves early in her career for the Rampage brand but began to struggle shortly before walking out on the company. Many attributed this slump to mounting mental health issues for which she was seeking professional help.
Currently new contract negotiations have ended, but President Mac reportedly remains hopeful to still get them signed before the start of the new year. We reached out to President Mac for an official comment but he declined an interview. However when we reached out to the Wolfe's, Luke said he was "insulted" by the offer that the EWC offered him, but didn't give any details on the offer itself. However insider information given to us by an anonymous source tells us that because of Luke and Annabelle Wolfe's current feelings toward EWC management it may take a major push to get them to sign new deals.
