Re: Recent WWE Contract Details
This is probably BS, cooked up by someone who has a decent idea of what they are talking about, but it's fun to speculate and it's probably not far from the truth, either. In some cases I think they are very close to being accurate, such as guys like Cena, Big Show, Khali, Zack Ryder, Jack Swagger and some others.
I highly doubt CM Punk signed for seven years, though. I'm going to bet Vince and co. wanted him to sign for seven but Punk was able to get those years down to five. Unless they are thinking of him taking over color announcing on Raw in the future, and considering this contract was drawn up over six months after Punk's stint as a commentator for WWE while he was recovering from his hip injury, I could see that being plausible.
What about Sin Cara's contract? That would be interesting...

I'm not jumping on the wagon that apparently believes these numbers "just because," but IF these numbers happen to be accurate, it's fair to say Mahal got raped. He's making less than I was five years ago and I don't have to endure a grueling travel schedule or be humiliated on national television.

Actually Bryan's and Punk's contracts are exactly what I thought they would be. I actually thought Bryan would be making somewhere around $60K a month, and Punk has his own custom furnished traveling bus plus a three floor condominium in Chicago. I'm very surprised at Del Rio's pay (too low in my most honest opinion).
Why would anyone sign a contract for 10 years? I mean if I were a wrestler I'd only sign a 1-3 year deal. 10 years is a lot of time, and who's to say things might change somewhere down the line. I'd rather have a 3 year deal just to be safe.
In Big Show’s case it’s a guaranteed 10mil! Why would you pass on that?
