NXT moved to the USA Network in October last year. Brad Shepard reported at the time that raises were expected, but it’ll be a while before they happen. Now it appears that NXT Superstars are finally seeing a boost in pay, but they’ll need to sign a new deal to get it.

Fightful reports that WWE has finally started issuing pay raises to NXT Superstars. It is also reported that these new raises come with three-year contract agreements. It was noted that “not all of the talent offered signed the new deals.”

These raises aren’t as high as RAW and SmackDown Superstars. They are getting a substantial boost in pay.

The general idea among NXT talent about raises was that they “better be” getting them. It was also mentioned that a lot of people hold that same mindset. It is interesting that a boost in pay seems to be contingent on a new contract.


It was previously reported that Taynara Conti walked out of NXT following disagreement about pay. Her locker was cleared out as well. NXT talent has also recently been heavily advised to stop speaking to pro wrestling reporters.
