TNA Salaries

Hogan cannot be on more than $520,000 per annum as a non-wrestling on-screen personality.
Sting and Kurt Angle shouldn't be on more than $390,000 per annum for a maximum of 12 times per year in the ring and mainly as on-screen personalities.
I'd look to bring in Tommy Dreamer in a backstage role and on-screen role. $260,000 per annum should be enough for Tommy.

Just over $1million per annum to cover old school fans of WWF, WCW and ECW. Sounds good to me.

Re: TNA Salaries

I wonder how much my boo, Aj Styles gets paid?

Also how much do the Knockouts get paid? I want to know that Gail Kim and Mickie James get paid good, I like them.

CKY ❤

Re: TNA Salaries

I saw somewhere posted Hogan gets 30k per week = 1.5 mill a year.

Re: TNA Salaries

I was under the impression that Hogan made slightly under a million a year.

Before you complain about the salaries these guys are making you need to see their merch #'s.

he literally just talks on tv.
$10k per week max. $520,000 per year. If he doesn't accept the offer, get rid of him...

It's 30,000 an appearance. Spike pays half of it and it'd be bi weekly because he's only making one appearance a fortnight.

He'd make probably about 400,000 a year from TNA, 400,000 from Spike and then throw in the 4 PPV's in which TNA would be paying and you have almost a million dollars a year.

Not that bad considering OP wants to pay Tommy Dreamer 260,000 dollars a year.

Dreamer can do it all, on-screen, backstage. Agent, head of talent relations, creative. Plus he's an ECW figurehead...

Re: TNA Salaries

If anyone in TNA makes more than $250k a year they are way overpaid. No wonder TNA is in financial trouble.

If you reduced the salaries of some of the bigger names and they walked, where would they go to make even $250k? Answer: no where.

To be fair apart from his ECW work he's never stood out to me on screen, backstage he was always an assistant, Agent I'll give you, Head of Talent I'll give you and I've never known him to be overly involved in creative but that could of happened in WWECW.

ECW Figurehead. Who cares?

If we assume Sting, Hardy and Angle are three making over 250k a year they could probably all return/debut in/to WWE. A guy like Sting, Hardy or Angle could make a killing in the indies though. I hear Kevin Nash nets about 100k a year in indy booking fee's and he's not even actively looking for it.

Not to mention the merchandise these guys could move in the indies.

Re: TNA Salaries

No wrestler in TNA should make more than 100k a year. The average salary of a software engineer that works 40+ hours a week is 75k, so for a wrestler that works 3-6 shows (+ travel time) a month, 100k is VERY good. And they also make extra money from selling autographs, special appearances and merchandise.

There was a time wrestlers made a 'normal' amount of money, but that changed when the monday night war started, with both companies outbidding eachother to sign all the talent. But there is no use for that anymore.
