Re: Recent WWE Contract Details

Not really surprised, except for Khali's, and some of the divas' contracts.

Kane is getting paid well, and he deserves it also.

Re: Recent WWE Contract Details

Downside is base salary - what else do they get - merch percentage, house show gate percentage, PPV bonuses?

Punk's 3.25% merch bonus will be over and above whatever the standard is. He's probably taking home over $4M/year right now. IIRC Austin at his peak would make $8M per year with most of that in merchandise percentage.

Re: Recent WWE Contract Details

Very intetesting it this is legit. Khali earning that much...? He must be laughing all the way to the bank.

Re: Recent WWE Contract Details

Downside's had always been pittance in relation to what the actual wrestler walks out with, pre 2002.

But I reckon that Cena's downside is probably about 45-50% of what he actually walks out with each year [before taxes, $5-$6m].

Re: Recent WWE Contract Details

Incidentally, the highest salaries I've seen are Austin who walked away with $12m in his best year, and Hogan who was being paid $300,000 per week from WCW 1994 through 1995, and was receiving 25% of the gates of all PPV's he headlined [and according to the Biography channel, he was pulling in $10m annually in the 80s].

i.i.r.c it was WCW buying up the industry that led to Vince giving all talent a downside guarantee. Bischoff tried to sign British Bulldog to a longterm contract, leading to McMahon signing him to a 250,000 dollar downside gurantee - big money pre-wrestling boom. After that everybody got one.
