Cody Rhodes answered a fan on Twitter who asked about the amount of money earned on the indie circuit and mentioned that he’s now making three times more money working independently than he was working a full-time schedule for WWE.
Hate to be tacky but I make triple per match now versus when I was with wwe & ROH offered me double my downside
Success shouldn't bother you

Wrestler’s pay has been a big topic in recent weeks, as many independent talents that work the indie circuit have been making a big fuss on how they’re making vs. how much they wouldn’t be making in WWE. Austin Aries recently mentioned that he’s made more money in the past six weeks than he did during the last six months working for WWE.
