    Found an interesting article on MSN about the pay that WWE Superstars get per year. As you can see there is one heck of a gao between the men and women. Also some superstars don’t earn as much as I was expecting. Take Shinsuke Nakamura or Becky Lynch for example. And Brock earning that much when he does next to no shows is just ridiculous. Enjoy

    I'm quite surprised people like Heath Slater, Fandango, Kalisto and Sin Cara are all on more than Braun Strowman. Also Surprised Sin Cara is actually one of the highest paid guys there.

    I'm guessing these numbers is counting the merchandise residual they get from merch sale. Anyway, not surprise about these number for the most part as it seem like they go base on how big of a attraction they are.

    I think the sin cara number is how they negociated the contract with the old sin cara and that hunico was given the old contract. Jinder salary was probably based on his push he got last year and it's probably way down this year. Becky will probably get a big raise when she renegociate her contract, same goes with braun.

    The fact that huge stars like Becky Lynch and Alexa Bliss only make the same amount or slightly over what Luke Gallows and Scott Dawson make is a travesty.

    Remember, it say these figure are from mid 2018. I can guarantee you Becky Lynchs next contract update will have her #2 to Ronda. Alot has changed since mid 2018. I think the biggest nonsense is Brock Lesnar though at 12 million for only a couple matches a year.

    Not really because he's a big attraction and he would get the same amount or even more from any other wrestling promotion or even the ufc. So i don't think it such non sense to pay lesnar that much money, if it keep him away from the competition.

    One thing to remember about Lesnar is that he also has an option in UFC. He may not be worth the entire 12 Million but when there's another organization that wants your services there's going to be a bidding war.

    I totally agree the women need a pay increase. Considering there are women that are becoming more over than the men I hope Charlotte, Becky, and others get a salary bump.

    Hard to believe these are base salaries. Some people really need to fire their agents while others may have sold their souls to Satan for the money their getting in comparison.

    Is this public info? I get executive comp being public. I think the SEC has rules around that. But independent contractors? That's the kind of shit that Jane in HR gets fired for. I'm calling bullshit.

    I think they are salaries at that time, with probably a lot of bonus for a Championship run and time with the company combined with Merch money.
    My upset is still Sincara, as he doesn’t sell as Kalisto or New Day and gets more, and the fact Men’s contract low is double from Women’s
    And probably, by looking at the numbers, it’s who was getting a push or not. And I have to ask: Tyler Breeze? He is on main roster and was still popular then...

    Brock can go piss off to UFC for all I care. He is overrated.

    Also, I thought UFC WASN'T an option, since I thought he was facing a drug ban.

    No he can actually return to UFC after serving is suspension from USADA and from what i've read, UFC has already a fight plan for him for the end of the year.
