Triple H took over as head of WWE Creative after Vince McMahon retired from the company due to the hush money scandal. Since then, WWE has undergone quite a few changes that fans approve of. However, now it seems the company is not giving any kind of bonuses to its talent.
During Vince McMahon’s reign in the company, there were numerous instances where he gave WWE Superstars bonuses, especially for the major Premium Live Events and more.
While speaking on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that WWE talent do not get any kind of bonuses in addition to their contractual payment.
“When you’re in WWE now, basically, you’re making… you sign a contract for a million dollars, just say. You’re making a million dollars.
“There’s not a Saudi bonus, there’s not a pay-per-view bonus. There might be if you’re Roman Reigns… the super merch sale guys probably would get more, but most of the guys that’s not the case. Most people are making what their contract says right now.”
Roman Reigns and his Bloodline stable recently headlined Survivor Series WarGames, where his faction defeated The Brawling Brutes, Drew McIntyre and Kevin Owens. Regardless, WWE Superstars won’t be getting any bonuses by the looks of it and that might not be changing anytime soon.
