One of the added benefits of NXT doing a national tour is that it might enable the company to increase the amount of money that is being paid to the performers. That, of course, depends heavily on whether or not they can turn a profit from the live events. Based on the results that we have seen during the testing period thus far, it looks likely to happen. A champion like Sasha Banks would more than likely have a higher salary than others.

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.
