Re: Recent WWE Contract Details

Downsides in contracts are just that - downsides. They are the worst case scenario payouts in case you get hurt or creative puts you on the shelf. If you get hot and start making lots of TV and PPV appearances then your actual pay can be much higher. I bet Darren Young is making much more than his downside contract now that he and Titus have become a featured tag team.

If WWE uses you you get paid more, the downside is just the worst case. Somebody like Trent Baretta probably is making his downside this year since he's never on TV and had an injury (I think).

But WWE is big on incentives, so they want to highly incentivize the talent to become popular. Some new guy with only a $100k downside will still be rewarded financially if they somehow get over and end up in PPV matches 6 months into their contract.

This isn't like the NBA or NFL where they guys get paid their contract regardless of performance. WWE is all about incentivize-based pay systems.

A lot of commissioned sales jobs have downside contracts. You might only have $75k guaranteed, but if you become #1 sales guy in the region you can make $300k.

The only guys who make the downsides are the guys you aren't seeing regularly on TV and PPVs.

Re: Recent WWE Contract Details

Kofi and Ryder are getting shafted there considering how over they are and how much merch they shift.

They gave Tensai a 3 year contract?

Re: Recent WWE Contract Details

In Chris Jericho's book, he really gets into details about WWE contracts. Those are probably base salaries, and John Cena probably got like 100k extra just for his wrestlemania main event match. Jericho said he got 450k plus PPV buy % (which is determined by vince and his staff) so if you're deemed a major "reason" that someone would buy a PPV, you get a larger amount of $ from the PPV sales.

That probably ties into what JTG was complaining about a few weeks back. Jericho says in "Undisputed" that he confronted Vince after his Wrestlemania watch with HHH at WMX8 because he got a $10,000 check and Hunters was 5 times what his was, FOR THE SAME MATCH!

So this figures are probably only half the story... but poor Zack Ryder

WOULD YOU PLEASE. SHUT. THE HELL. UP?

Re: Recent WWE Contract Details

Even the lowest of the low get paid well in the WWE. No wonder everyone wants to go, even if it's just to job.

Wanted:

A tall well built woman with good
reputation, who can cook frogs
legs, who appreciates a good fuc-
schia garden, classical music and tal-
king without getting too serious.
But please read only lines 1, 3 and 5.

Re: Recent WWE Contract Details

I call bullshit on this, but it's at least fun to read and speculate.
