Brock Lesnar
"With Brock I'll be honest with you, he was getting paid about four or five times more than everyone else in the developmental programme because of who he was. You don't come across an athletic specimen like that who won the NCAA Heavyweight Championship everyday. However he was not a natural wrestling fan, not a natural wrestling student, he was a bit boring in the ring to be honest because he wasn't used to being a showman. Also for a world class athlete I didn't think he was trying five times as hard as his salary." - Jim Cornette discusses Brock Lesnar as a developmental wrestler

Manik
"My contract was started midway thru the year last year but altogether with salary+appearances I was on pace for roughly $75,000-$84,000 for a year period. That's if my schedule is as busy as it was last summer/fall. Also that's only counting TNA. I'd make a lot more if I kept up with other bookings outside but I just don't. I'm also guaranteed a huge chunk of that regardless of if I wrestle or not. So it's pretty ok considering I do what I love. I'm on the low end on the roster too. Most guys do way better than me." - Manik reveals salary in TNA

Bray Wyatt
While the actual numbers are not available online as he is still a fairly new performer on the main roster, the belief is that Bray Wyatt does not have a high salary in WWE at the moment. The downside guarantee is said to be on the low end, but since he has been featured heavily on pay per view events, he supplements his salary with monthly bonus checks.

Jinder Mahal
While fans are under the impression that professional wrestlers are all getting rich, that simply is not the case, especially for a lower level performer like Jinder Mahal. The 3MB member is currently being paid $75,000 a year by WWE in downside guarantees. That salary seems like a lot, but Mahal has to pay for his own travel expenses every week.
March 26, 2014
Kofi Kingston
While he is not a main event performer in WWE, Kofi Kingston draws in a pretty good salary. His downside guarantee is $254,200 a year. Even though he does have to pay for his own travel expenses, Kingston does get thrown into a couple of pay per view events per year, which gives his annual salary a nice boost from the PPV bonuses.
March 24, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
Since he is viewed as an international marketing asset and an occasional main event performer, Alberto Del Rio is one of the few guys in WWE that has a salary that is higher than half a million a season. The former world heavyweight champion has a downside guarantee of $675,000 a year. He also receives a good amount of pay per view bonuses as well.
March 23, 2014
Scott Steiner
A website called Sport Rich List is claiming that Scott Steiner has a net worth of approximately $4.4 million, which instantly caused wrestling fans to wonder about the legitimacy of that claim, as the former WWE star has not collected a big salary in quite some time. There are those that believe that he is suing TNA because he is hoping to cash in a big pay day.
March 21, 2014
Triple H
Some interesting salary details were released about WWE today, and it has now been revealed that Triple H is collecting two checks from the company. He receives $550000 a year for being the executive vice president of talent and live events. HHH also receives $1 million a year to be a wrestler and on screen character as well.
March 20, 2014
Brodus Clay
Thanks to being a part of a popular act for a while there, Brodus Clay maintains a pretty good salary from his bosses in WWE. The former bodyguard for Snoop Dogg is now being paid $170,000 a year as a professional wrestler. Being paid more than six figures is considered quite a feat for someone that does not receive consistent time on television.
March 19, 2014
Big Show
In order to steal him away from WCW, Vince McMahon had to throw a good amount of money at the Big Show. More than a decade after the fact, his salary still remains among the top of the list in WWE. Big Show is currently being paid $1,050,000 a year in downside guarantee, and his pay per view bonuses kick it quite a bit as well.
March 17, 2014
Hulk Hogan
Celebrity DBI, a website that tracks the name value of celebrities, has Hulk Hogan at 96% popularity, which puts him just below NBA legend Michael Jordan, who is sitting at 98%. His cultural relevance was the reason why he was able to command a huge salary from TNA and why he was able to get Vince McMahon to hand him big checks now.
February 24, 2014
Evan Bourne
There are those in the company that still believe that Vince McMahon is keeping wrestlers on the roster because of Linda McMahon and her ongoing political career. Guys like Evan Bourne, Ezekiel Jackson, Hunico, JTG and Yoshi Tatsu are still on the contract and receiving a salary from the company despite not doing much.
February 24, 2014
Great Khali

While he is no longer being pushed as a legitimate threat towards the main event scene, the Great Khali is pulling in a huge salary from WWE still. He is pulling in approximately $974,000 a year, which is mainly due to the fact that he is massively popular in India and generates interest from that market

Brock Lesnar
Steve Austin recently did a podcast interview with Paul Heyman, and the two of them discussed the possibility of Austin returning for another match with WWE.

April 18, 2014
Paul Heyman
The backstage gimmick for Antonio Cesaro is that WWE will try to get the fans to beg for a face turn. Management is still secretly passing out Cesaro Section signs to the fans at the live events. The hope is that fans will be clamoring heavily for him to leave Paul Heyman and finally become a good guy. If that works, then he can get his big match against Brock Lesnar in about a year.

Brock Lesnar
There was actually a push backstage in WWE to have Jim Ross doing commentary at Wrestlemania 30. The legendary performer was penciled in to call the match between Brock Lesnar and Undertaker.

April 13, 2014
Paul Heyman
As of right now, there are plans backstage to give Antonio Cesaro a huge push. Pairing him with a great talker like Paul Heyman was the start of that.

April 11, 2014
Undertaker
While the audience was quite jovial towards him during Monday Night Raw, there are no plans in place for WWE to do a face turn for Brock Lesnar, as the company feels that he is much more of a draw as a dominant heel. The fans were basically cheering for the tremendous promo that Paul Heyman was cutting about the end of the Undertaker streak.
April 10, 2014
Undertaker
WWE has now decided to put the Undertaker into the upcoming Flintstones movie.

April 10, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Since shock was rampant, the widespread belief among wrestling fans was that the ending of the Undertaker match at Wrestlemania 30 was a botch. Some even went as far as to say that Brock Lesnar was not supposed to win. However, the reason why the ending appeared off was because Undertaker was working with a concussion, and Lesnar had to work as a ring general, a role that he is not accustomed to.
April 9, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Gambling sites decided to allow people to bet on the matches at Wrestlemania 30, despite the entire show being a scripted event. It came back to bite them in the ass, as a lot of people bet on Brock Lesnar to beat the Undertaker. Things were so bad that the sites actually had to change the odds and skew things towards Lesnar. It was too late, though, and they ended up having to shell out a lot of money on the bets.
April 9, 2014
Antonio Cesaro

April 7, 2014
Brock Lesnar
The majority of the sellout audience at Wrestlemania 30 were rooting for the Undertaker to beat Brock Lesnar, but his biggest fan of the evening might have been his wife, former WWE diva Michelle McCool.

April 7, 2014
Undertaker
Since a lot of fans were in disbelief, there were rumors floating around that the Undertaker ending at Wrestlemania 30 was not planned. Some believed that Brock Lesnar went into business for himself. That was not the case, as WWE had the finished planned for quite some time now. They kept things as much of a secret as they could.
April 7, 2014
Undertaker

April 7, 2014
