One of the biggest surprises coming out of the latest batch of WWE releases was that NXT Superstar Oney Lorcan has a 90-day non-compete instead of the typical 30-day that comes with an NXT contract.
On his latest VLOG, Lorcan (who is back to using his former name BIFF Busick) explained to his fans how he has a 90-day non-compete with WWE:
“I’ve been getting a lot of questions about why I have a 90-day no-compete rather than a 30-day no-compete,” Oney Lorcan began. “When I wrestled for 205 Live, the show used to travel around with SmackDown. So when I got called to 205 Live, I resigned a contract for a main roster contract. So rather than have a 30-day no-compete that’s in the NXT contract, my contract contained a 90-day no-compete clause, so I just wanted to clear that up for you.”
Oney Lorcan’s time on 205 Live got him a main roster contract with WWE
Most people remember Oney Lorcan’s WWE run for what he did in NXT. He was actually moved to the 205 Live roster in March of 2019 when the brand was touring with SmackDown.
Lorcan returned to WWE NXT in September of 2019, and while he still appeared on 205 Live from time to time, he was seen by the WWE Universe as a member of the black and gold brand.
Since he’s under a main roster 90-day non-compete, Lorcan won’t be able to show up for another big wrestling company until February of 2022.
