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.

Kenta Kobayashi
It has now been revealed that WWE pays their developmental wrestlers approximately $25000 a year. There's usually a two or three year commitment involved as well. An established guy like Kenta Kobayashi may be receiving a higher salary, however. The average amount is definitely less than what some of these guys with name value can make on the independent wrestling circuit.
September 11, 2014
Mr Anderson
There are talks that Mr Anderson could be one of the next wrestlers to leave TNA. He signed a new contract last October, and it was reportedly for just a year. Since the company has been trying to be very cautious with their budget, Anderson could become a casualty. Reports surfaced in May that the former world heavyweight champion was one of the remaining performers with a big salary.
August 21, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
Reports surfaced this week that WWE has banned Alberto Del Rio from wrestling in the United States for approximately 10 or 11 months because he was found to be in breach of his contract. The former world heavyweight champion will be allowed to work in Mexico as he pleases. Del Rio may not take legal actions against WWE because the company would be paying him a salary during the next year.
August 16, 2014
Great Khali
As many already know, WWE has been trying to downplay the importance of Great Khali to the company. For years, he was paid a very high salary because of his overseas marketing appeal. However, with WWE losing a ton of money lately, there are talks that the former world heavyweight champion could become a casualty soon. Giving him a release would save WWE close to a million dollars a year.
August 13, 2014
Hernandez
Over the last year, the status of Hernandez in TNA has been up in the air. We now know that the former tag team champion is no longer under contract. His deal with TNA expired, and management opted to not renew it. Instead, the company will be utilizing the salary slot on newer performers. That has been the company strategy as of late.
May 13, 2014
Frankie Kazarian
Since the two sides could not come to an agreement on a new contract, Frankie Kazarian finished up his stint with TNA this week by working a pair of taped Impact Wrestling episodes. Rumors have it that management is letting the veteran performer walk, so that they could use his salary slot to sign a pair of younger and cheaper wrestlers.
May 12, 2014
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
April 19, 2014
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.
March 27, 2014
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
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
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
February 14, 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

December 12, 2013
Triple H
Professional wrestling and football have long had a connection, as a lot of players from the gridiron have successfully made the switch to the squared circle. Triple H wants that tradition to continue, so WWE is now targeting more football players to join their developmental program. While there are a couple of guys already on the roster with athletic backgrounds, the company is looking for guys with more name value. WWE is also willing to pay these guys more money than the wrestlers.
September 15, 2014
Tyler Breeze
Last week, wrestling fans were dazzled by Adrian Neville, Sami Zayn, Tyler Breeze and Tyson Kidd during a tag team match on Monday Night Raw. You can expect more of that in the near future, as the WWE NXT stars are being booked for more television appearances. Reports have surfaced that Triple H is the one pushing management to feature the developmental wrestlers more frequently.
September 13, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
During a recent interview, Sami Zayn revealed that Antonio Cesaro actually made the request to management to go down to WWE NXT and work there. Zayn explained that the motive behind the move was to let certain people backstage see what he was capable of since it is harder to get the spotlight on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. According to Zayn, Triple H was really impressed with what he saw in Cesaro.
September 11, 2014
Kenta Kobayashi
The widespread assumption among wrestling fans is that Triple H is the one responsible for bringing in Prince Devitt, Kenta Kobayashi and Kevin Steen into WWE. However, during a recent interview, Kevin Nash specifically stated that HHH was against the idea of bringing in performers who have worked a good amount of time elsewhere. Nash stated that HHH preferred to produce talent in house instead. That has caused people to wonder who was behind the decision to bring in Devitt, Steen and Kobayashi.
September 5, 2014
Steve Austin
Where there's smoke, there's usually fire. Rumors have persisted for quite some time now that there is still backstage heat towards Jim Ross in WWE. There is some new evidence to support that claim. Ross recently revealed that the company has not approved any of their performers to be a guest on his podcast show, where Steve Austin and Chris Jericho have had plenty of WWE personnel, including Triple H himself, doing interviews for them.
September 1, 2014
Undertaker
During a recent interview, Sting was asked who he would like to work a match with if the Undertaker is unable to wrestle again. The former world heavyweight champion, who is not under contract to WWE as an in ring performer at the moment, stated that he would love to work with Triple H. A match between the two is possible at Wrestlemania 31.
August 23, 2014
Triple H
There are rumors floating around right now that Kurt Angle has called Triple H about a possible return to WWE. Reports has surfaced that HHH is not interested in a reunion with the former world heavyweight champion. There is said to be some lingering backstage heat from HHH towards Angle, whose contract with TNA expires in exactly a month from today.
August 21, 2014
Triple H
When Rey Mysterio decided to make a video appearance at TripleMania for AAA, the belief was that he was doing it as a shot at WWE. Rumors have surfaced that he is quite upset with the company in regards to his contract situation. Reports are now surfacing that Mysterio had a handshake agreement with Triple H that would have enabled him to walk away from the company. However, Vince McMahon reportedly decided to overrule that and force to remain under contract to WWE for another year.
August 20, 2014
Roman Reigns
Reports are surfacing that there is some backstage heat between Vince McMahon and Triple H at the moment over the main event of Wrestlemania 31. McMahon wants Brock Lesnar to defend the title against the Rock, as he feels that those two guys would produce the biggest draw of a match for WWE. HHH, however, wants the company to elevate Roman Reigns by having him challenge Lesnar.
August 18, 2014
Triple H
During an interview with Primera Noticias, Alberto Del Rio revealed some details about his release from WWE. He stated that while Vince McMahon did admonish him, he was also told to go back to work. Del Rio found out the following day that he was then given a suspension. Shortly afterwards, Triple H called and told him that he was being fired instead of just suspended.

August 16, 2014
Roman Reigns
One of the things that will help Roman Reigns in his quest to win the WWE title is the fact that he has a good amount of sex appeal. It was one of the first things that Triple H noticed when he met Reigns. The company keeps track of what fans are saying through social media, and they're easily able to see that a lot of female fans are attracted to his looks. That might help draw in the female demographics.
August 16, 2014
Batista
In another sign that he is moving closer to a full jump to Hollywood, Batista recently discussed his wishes for a retirement match. The former WWE champion would like to do another big match at Wrestlemania against Triple H, who he feels is still the best worker in the business. Management might be willing to do that at Wrestlemania 31 to capitalize on his name value being increased because of Guardians of the Galaxy.
August 15, 2014
Triple H
While she is not doing a practice match with Brie Bella before Summerslam 2014, Stephanie McMahon is actually putting in a lot of hours training with Triple H. The couple routinely work out together, so it makes sense for him to put in some ring time with his wife. The match is not expected to last very long, and a surprise ending is still being planned.
August 15, 2014
Kevin Steen
Rumors have persisted over the last several months that Kevin Steen was set to sign a developmental contract with WWE. It looks to be official now, as the former ROH champion has posed for a picture with Triple H while wearing a WWE NXT shirt. The belief is that he will be focusing more on his weight and physique than actually training for the in ring stuff.
August 12, 2014
Triple H
Now that he is gone from WWE, Ricardo Rodriguez is starting to become a bit more vocal about the issues that he had with the company. It appears that Triple H is his main target. Rodriguez stated that HHH didn't even look at him when the two shook hands. He also stated that his weight was an issue, and HHH would occasionally take jabs at him. Rodriguez even joked that he would have been shocked that HHH knew his name.
August 12, 2014
Triple H
There are still a lot of fans under the belief that the Alberto Del Rio release was a work by WWE. Some are basing solely on the fact that the company has addressed his actions in a straightforward manner. Those within the industry, though, know that this is a legitimate thing. There is no story line being set up for a feud between Del Rio and Triple H.
August 10, 2014
Vince McMahon
When Mark Yeaton was given a release from WWE, many assumed that it was because the company was just trying to save money. However, speculations are now arising that there might have been more to it. Yeaton, who has worked with the company for approximately three decades, was close with Kevin Dunn. Triple H and Dunn are reportedly locked in a power struggle backstage to see who can sway Vince McMahon the most.
August 10, 2014
Bray Wyatt
During a recent interview, Triple H revealed some interesting things about Bray Wyatt. He stated that WWE was on the verge of giving him a release a while back. HHH said he was able to convince management to let him work on a new character and test it out on WWE NXT. Things worked out rather well, and Wyatt was eventually promoted to the main roster.
August 7, 2014
Stephanie McMahon
Stephanie McMahon and Triple H have revealed a bit of news about the WWE Network that might help the company secure more subscribers. The real life couple stated that episodes of WCW Nitro are being added to the online service. There is a good amount of people who have been hesitant to sign up for the WWE Network because it lacked the full archive of former television shows.
