It looks like things are pointing up for WWE. During a shareholders announcement, the company revealed that several of their high ranking executives were given raises. Vince McMahon got a nice boost in salary, and his right hand man Kevin Dunn did as well. The CFO and the head of their movie studios were two others receiving raises. Triple H received a raise as well, but interestingly enough, there was no mention of Stephanie McMahon.

However, since management feels that he can be a marketing asset, they instead offered him a higher than normal salary on his deal.
