Summer Rae has been coming in hot since WWE announced her return for the Women’s Royal Rumble match. Summer has been feuding on Twitter with former Total Divas co-star Natalya. With the hype and the appearance should come a nice payday.

At least part of that money will be converted directly into cryptocurrency. Summer Rae appeared on Fox Business’ Cavuto Coast to Coast on Monday. Rae told the host that she plans to convert her Rumble paycheck into Bitcoin and Litecoin.

“Going back to wrestle in the WWE’s Royal Rumble PPV is very special for me as there have only ever been 4 Women’s Royal Rumble matches. I used to watch it growing up every year & imagine my name on the big screen though it was only men on my tv screen.

“I am excited to be converting some of my pay from the PPV into crypto with Hedge. As more professional athletes are starting to get paid in crypto I think it’s important for female athletes to as well. I am excited to be at the forefront of that movement!”

It is important to note that Summer Rae is the Director of Marketing for Hedge. The movement of her salary into cryptocurrency will benefit her via her ability to market the product through these interviews. Fans should note that crypto markets are extremely volatile.

One National Football League star found out all about that volatility. L.A. Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. lost over $700,000 after accepting his contract payments in Bitcoin. Summer Rae is promoting a company that deals in cryptocurrencies. It’s no surprise she’d take the opportunity to do so on such a huge stage.
