Backstage News On The Cavinder Twins’ WWE Contract Status – As noted, this week’s NXT main event saw Thea Hail win a Battle Royal to become the new #1 contender to NXT Women’s Champion Tiffany Stratton for a future title match.
Hail’s post-match celebration saw the ring fill up with Chase U students. WWE NIL athletes The Cavinder Twins (Hayley, Hanna) were in that group as they hoisted Hail up on their shoulders. It was reported back in mid-April that the social media stars would be forgoing their fifth and final season of college basketball eligibility at the University of Miami, to instead begin their WWE journeys. The twins signed WWE NIL deals in 2021, then the following year they transferred from Fresno State to Miami.
There has been speculation as to whether The Cavinder Twins have signed a talent contract with the company to wrestle. While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that is not the case for now.
“That’s an interesting thing. They were there. They have not signed a talent contract yet. I checked that today. They still have their NIL contract, and they will be either…they’re [WWE] are really high on them, but they haven’t even trained yet, so who’s to say. They’re celebrities,” Meltzer stated.
It remains to be seen if The Cavinder Twins will appear on TV regularly moving forward, but they were taking photos at the WWE Performance Center on Tuesday, as seen below.
