WWE SALARIES - HOW MUCH DO THE WRESTLERS AND DIVAS MAKE?
Source
This should make for some interesting Saturday night reading. This was posted on the Wrestling Observer Message Board. It’s the current contract and salary info for most active members of the WWE roster. Some are expected and some are pretty shocking (Khali being one). Let us know what you think of this (Kenny):
These figures are rounded up from the original figures we received. These figures do not include, PPV or appearance bonuses, nor do they include the merchandise cut that each performer receives. Some performers receive an additional percentage added to their merchandise cut, if they are a high merchandise seller, and these are noted.
Note 1: It would appear that WWE’s standard contract lengths are 1 year, 3 year, 5 year, 7 year and 10 year.
Note 2: Some performers are offered a higher merchandise royalties percentage for taking a smaller downside. These figures were not made available to us.
Note 3: The executive office and “legends” contracts were not made available to us. These contracts operate on a different system entirely.
Note 4: The Undertaker is believed to be on a per-appearance contract, in which he is paid an agreed upon rate (a long with the typical PPV bonus if he wrestlers) for each appearance he makes for the company. Undertaker of course, still receives his merchandise royalties, etc, but isn’t on a downside contract. Undertaker is not on a legends contact, which means he cannot make appearances for independent promotions.

Yeah, some of these numbers seem suspect than a motherfucker.lol.
Oh, and Khali isn't as useless as you think, bruhs. Maintaining that Indian demographic ain't no joke. 

I learned how to code without him...I learned how to run an option offense without him..And I'm gonna have my own forum without him! :damn:




How come he don't want me to be a mod, bruhs? :sadcam: :tocry:

They work a couple hours a week. I'd that shit compared to the daily grind. They get paid to workout besides the shows bascially.

Rey is still probably the second biggest draw in the company, I don't see how his contract is a waste.  Especially since Sin Cara is an absolute flop.

I understand vets like The Big Show,
Note 2: Some performers are offered a higher merchandise royalties percentage for taking a smaller downside. These figures were not made available to us.
Note 3: The executive office and “legends” contracts were not made available to us. These contracts operate on a different system entirely.
Note 4: The Undertaker is believed to be on a per-appearance contract, in which he is paid an agreed upon rate (a long with the typical PPV bonus if he wrestlers) for each appearance he makes for the company.

Yeah after looking at his salary and thinking about it, that's the only reason he's getting paid that much b/c of the India market for WWE.

The second biggest hello CM Punk & John Cena anybody... if anything he's at least 3rd or 4th and if DB takes off something seriously then Rey might be looking at 4th.

I find it funny that Swagger is paid around $300K when Kofi is RAW every Monday and barely gets over $200k.
