Wrestling Revealed

Kamala

Kamala not underpaid

Earlier in the year, Kamala revealed that he was paid $13,000 for his Summerslam match in 1992 against the Undertaker, who was paid $500,000. He hinted that racism might have played a part in that. Those within WWE are said to have brushed off the comment, noting that one man was a much bigger draw than the other. It is not unusual for performers to be paid differently even though they are working together.

Triple H

NXT London

When Triple H said that he wanted NXT to be something special, he was not kidding. His aggressive business tactics have caught the attention of the entire professional wrestling industry. Despite the brand losing money for WWE, a Takeover special for London has been announced. It will take place in December. The brand will also be doing six shows in various cities in England prior to that special.

Great Khali

Mark Henry to India

Since the company no longer has the expensive services of the Great Khali, they are forced to find other wrestlers to send to India to promote. The latest person to be sent to that country is Mark Henry, and he is on his way there this week. His promotional duties aren't for an upcoming tour, however. He is simply there to bring a little more awareness for WWE since they are televised there.

Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar vs Bo Dallas

Whenever WWE does a live event at Madison Square Garden, they treat it like a pay per view, even though it is not always televised. The show is so big that management is even willing to shell out some additional money to Brock Lesnar so that he can make it even more of a special occasion. Rumors are floating around right now that he is going to be wrestling Bo Dallas, but the front office has yet to choose an opponent for that evening.

Kevin Owens

WWE main roster promotion

As some of you already know, NXT performers are paid a whole lot less than their counterparts on the main roster in WWE. They also do not have as much travel expenses since they are not on the road as frequently. When a performer like Kevin Owens or Adrian Neville gets called up to the main roster, the company helps them make the transition by paying for all of their travel expenses for the first three months. They're on their own after that.

Randy Orton

Randy Orton reduced schedule

The end of the road could be coming soon for Randy Orton. Reports have surfaced that he requested that WWE reduce his schedule. He no longer wants to do the full schedule because it is too hectic for him. The former world heavyweight champion has been living out of a suitcase for much of the past 13 years. Orton is said to be looking for a part time contract that is similar to what Shawn Michaels used to have.

Michael Cole

NXT commentators

Some details have been revealed as to how the commentators in NXT operate. For starters, they generally do the commentary in post production and not live. Triple H is the main person that is in the ears of Rich Brennan, Corey Graves and Byron Saxton. Michael Cole will provide them with advice from time to time. Cole is also the one in charge when they do commentary in post production.

Vince McMahon

Summerslam in Las Vegas

Since the pay per view weekend was such as success, WWE has been touting how well Summerslam did in Brooklyn. You would figure that the company might want a repeat performance next year. Well, that is not the case. Vince McMahon is reportedly interested in moving the pay per view to Las Vegas, a city where people would gladly travel to for an event. There are also talks of taking things back to Los Angeles.

AJ Styles

New Japan revenue doubles

Back in 2012, Bushido Road purchased New Japan and put it under their corporate umbrella. It turned out to be a wise investment, as company president Takaaki Kidani has revealed that revenue has doubled in that time. That is good news for guys like AJ Styles, Young Bucks, Karl Anderson, Luke Gallows and others because it means that the company will be able to continue to use them.

Alberto Del Rio

Alberto Del Rio joins MMA

While professional wrestling is where he makes his bread and butter, Alberto Del Rio has long had an interest in MMA. He has yet to receive the right offer to step back into the ring for a fight. However, he still wanted a way to be involved in the sport. Del Rio has found that way. The former world heavyweight champion has signed on to work as an announcer for a promotion in Mexico.
