But the reason I feel Khali is getting paid pretty high is simple.
Khali - Maybe WWE is in love with those giant wrestlers, (dont get me wrong he isn't a good wrestler) but he is a rare breed. How many 7 ft+ guys who can wrestle some or at all. Its rare. They can honestly find tons of 6 ft guys who can wrestle in independent circuits etc, but how many khalis will you find?
Sure Im probably wrong about what I wrote lol but other then that I have no clue why? He doesn't sell merch or anything.
Khali is a big draw for indian fans i think, which is why they pay him so much, to make him stay cause i'm sure he can get lots of money in his own country, but not as much as they are paying him here.
That list has a few flaws although most of it is pretty accurate and fair. Was surprised to see Khali's figures lol but he deserves that much as he does sell merch and draws in the subcontinental market. And here are the flaws - Jinder Mahal earns much more than that, probably thrice of what's written other there. And another mistake is that the Big Show has an Iron Clad contract.
