  1. “He signed a $3 million per year deal with the company for 3 years. And he only appears in two matches per year, taking his income to $1.5 million per year.”
    $3m/yr is $3m/yr regardless of how many matches. How does that make for $1.5m/yr?

    1. If you read it said one. 5 million per match. Per match. Per match.

      Wrestles two times a year, makes 3 million per year which would be 1.5 million per match. Per match. Per match. Did I mention per match? Pay the f*** attention!

    2. That was 1.5 million per MATCH not per year. amounting to 3 million a year because he only wrestles two matches a year.

    1. This post was originally published on December 4. The date you are seeing above is the date the article was last updated.

  2. Charlotte Flair Is VERY under paid but her individual ratings are low plus the Women’s break through hasn’t make any affect yet, but it’s coming.

  3. You are talking about salaries but we do not know what benefits they each have, individual perks to supplement the salaries. Travel, chosen time off, perhaps hotel rooms or free vehicles to drive to events, etc.
    Do not forget that some pay might be based on time they have been a superstar.

    1. Triple H is a man of honor he nos what right for his workers i don’t have much moment but all i want to say is that i love wwe and i pray one day i will one it my life dream i will die for wrestling is my life doh I can’t become one because no to help but i wont give up my dream i love all wwe wrestlers

      1. He NOS? I believe the spelling you’re looking for is K-N-O-W. By the way, when you’re saying things like, all I want to say, you capitalize your I. Learn some punctuation if, your gonna post or, comment publicly. Commas, apostrophes, periods, question marks, you know, things like that. Damn son, don’t they teach you kids ANYTHING in school anymore?

        1. Chris, when you wrote ‘your’ gonna, I assume you meant ‘you’re’ ?

          GONNA? I believe the spelling you’re looking for is G-O-I-N-G T-O

          If you’re ‘gonna’ correct people, you should make sure your own house is in order first.

          1. Yes Stevo310 Thank you 🙌🏽.
            Just wish my response to your comment was sooner.

            Anyway I’m reading Chris response to Chris Junior thinking to myself “Really Dude, we knew what he meant.

            Besides with all those damn comma’s in his own response I wanted to ask who are his parents & if they’ve ever checked his homework or corrected him on his own grammar & punctuation?..

            Having the nerve to mention teachers & just embarrassed his own.

  4. Charlotte Flair need to be paid more. Seth Rollins need to win the Universal Title again and I wish AJ styles would get another big push he has some of the best moves in the ring I have ever seen.
