Default Salaries from TNA

I was reading about an AJ Styles interview a few moments ago, and he was asked about why he refused a WWE developmental contract that'd pay 500 bucks a week.
I didn't quite understand if he should have accepted because of the WWE opportunity or because of the money. The money, IMO, is kind of bad. 2,000 dollars a month?
Is that about what a TNA wrestler makes? Is that a good salary for a regular wrestler? He is not exactly a main eventer but he drwas good, in TNA proportions. Any ideas on TNA wrestlers salaries?

He was saying that's what the contract that the WWE offered him would've paid at the time, that's not what he makes in TNA.

AJ does on average 100 shows a year, that would mean he gets $4000 a show, that seems kinda a lot. I do think he gets more than $1000 a show (pure speculation), but 4000?!

I remember reading a while back that Styles and Beer Money (when they were together) were on high salaries because they made TNA quite a lot of money. I think it was from about the time Triple H wanted to try bringing Roode and Storm to WWE. I'm sure AJ makes a decent amount of money to be honest. No idea on the figure.

well it is in the realm of possibility for AJ styles to earn that much but do you have any form of proof or evidence or anything?

Dunno how much, but I'm pretty sure the 'top guys' or the guys who are TNA's main attractions get paid enough to make them stay at TNA, added to the lesser amount of dates and lighter schedule that TNA can offer from WWE.

I would imagine Sting, Angle, AJ, RVD, Anderon, Joe, Storm, Roode etc are all on a very nice salary for a much lighter touring schedule than WWE could offer.

That list has become an urban legend. Every 6 months it pops up somewhere and people think its real.
