No way is Tensai on a $520,000 downside. Since his pay 10 years ago was probably around the $250,000 downside if you take into account other wrestlers earnings from then. Business was a lot better back then too.

How can Booker be on $477,375? He isn't even a active wrestler anymore.

That was probably more his guarantee 10 years ago.
Gotta take into account inflation, the MMA boom, the effect Guerrero and Benoit's deaths played on the company, wellness, and the dearth of talent on the wrestling circuit.

I don't have a clue whether it is real or now, but it wouldn't shock me if it was nearly accurate. Tensai had reached a decent position in Japan and they thought he'd be a big hit; he wasn't. Vince gave lime green Mark Henry a 10 year 250,000 dollar guaranteed salary back in '96, when they were losing 6 million dollars per year.

They have been paying Jerry Lawler and Jim Ross hige end salaries for years. Booker T came in as a commentator and former headliner - he'd probably get high pay out of respect too.

Re: Recent WWE Contract Details

Though I think the posted numbers are BS, because no one is in a position to acquire this information (and anonymous means BS too), it does make sense that the company is paying wrestlers much more than they did during the Attitude Era. The company is actually making a lot more money now than in the past. WWE produces a lot more TV shows now, and they sell a lot more merchandise. If they were just a TV show, then yeah, low ratings would just mean less revenue, but they've seriously expanded in terms of how they make money.

WWE favorites: Punk, Sheamus, Lesnar, Ambrose, Rollins, Reigns,
Del Rio, Orton, Bryan, Ziggler, Wyatt, Usos, Cesaro, Mysterio, Kane
DGPW: Doi, Yoshino, Tozawa, Yamato, Dragon Kid, BxB Hulk, Ricochet, Super Shisa
NJPW: Okada, Nakamura, Styles ROH: Briscoes, Fish and O'Reilly, Young Bucks
All-Time: Rock, Punk, Lesnar, Angle

Re: Recent WWE Contract Details

I don't think this list is accurate....right now.

There are 3 things that jump out at me. First, I remember reading Cena makes over $3 million base salary, before merchandise, second, Punk makes higher than $2 million in base salary with his new contract, and finally I remember reading in August or September that AJ Lee had a new contract that made her the highest paid diva.

So I tend to think this list WAS accurate at some point, but new contracts have come into play since then.

Re: Recent WWE Contract Details

This thread is so funny thank you to whoever bumped it. Matt Striker gets the lowest pay out of all the commentators poor guy

I still find it unbelieveable how Great Khali is getting paid $974,000 considering he does fuck all

Miz getting $712,000 a year over better talent like Cody who is on $494,500 a year is a bit weird these contract details cant be right
