Alberto Del Rio Feels WWE Is Ripping Off Their Top Superstars

Alberto Del Rio Feels WWE Is Ripping Off Their Top Superstars

While speaking with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, former WWE Superstar Alberto Del Rio talked about WWE having a monopoly on the wrestling industry. He also claims that several talents that left the indecent promotions have taken pay cuts up to 80 percent and he feels that several top Superstars of the company are being paid nothing.

“It’s horrible for the business, but you cannot blame that company. That company is doing what a company is supposed to do—monopolize, get the best talent from everywhere, and try to destroy the competition. They’re smart, you cannot blame them. The problem is with the talent. Just going there to be there with the promise of being on TV, but not even charging good money for your work, is not good business. We as wrestlers need to remember that this is a business. We started because we love the business and we stay in it because we have a lot of passion for it, but you have to be rewarded for your work. I was there and saw some of the main guys, new top heels, and new top babyfaces, get paid nothing for their matches. The new talent joining NXT is taking pay cuts to work there, sometimes even 80 percent less. You need to be rewarded for your work in a business.”

    Do you know how much they’re making they’re making millions of dollars why because he wasn’t making it that’s why he’s salty you should move on

  • Omar

    He’s right, although he’s too dumb to realize this type of shitty business model was going on long before he ever worked for WWE.

    This is nothing new.

  • Sean T Flick

    Their contracts may be less than you would expect but they more than make up for it with merchandise sales
