WWE extends Triple H's wrestler contract for 3 years

While we know Triple H is going to be an executive with WWE for as long as the company will have him, his status as a semi-active wrestler isn't as certain. Or at least it wasn't until an SEC filing today revealed he has signed a three-year extension to continue working as a wrestler within the promotion.

As stated in the linked document:

This First Amendment to Amended and Restated Booking Contract ("First Amendment"), dated May 9, 2016, is by and between WORLD WRESTLING ENTERTAINMENT, INC. ("Promoter"), with offices at 1241 East Main Street, Stamford, Connecticut 06902, and PAUL LEVESQUE ("Wrestler"), with respect to a certain Amended and Restated Booking Contract by and between Promoter and Wrestler effective as of January 1, 2012 (the "Agreement").

In consideration of the promises, covenants and agreements set forth herein and for other good and other valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties, intending to be legally bound, hereby agree as follows:

1.The parties agree that the "Term" of the Agreement shall be extended to run an additional three years.  Thereafter, the Term shall extend on a year-to-year basis unless either party terminates it by written notice to the other party at least ninety (90) days prior to the then effective end of the Term.

2.All terms not defined in this First Amendment shall have the same meaning given them in the Agreement.  Except as expressly or by necessary implication modified by this First Amendment, the terms and conditions of the Agreement are hereby ratified and confirmed without limitation or exception and shall remain in full force and effect.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have executed this First Amendment as of the date first above written.

That means we can expect to see him wrestling for a few more years at the very least, likely in the same capacity we see him now, in occasional big matches at major events. At 46-years-old, this could be his last in-ring contract.
