WWE is a global juggernaut when it comes to professional wrestling, as it is the largest company in the world. Not only does WWE focus on pro wrestling, but it has also now become a multi-media company, spreading its wings to avenues such as TV shows, movies, books and so on. That said, it appears that Nick Khan has made a claim regarding the payment that male and female WWE Superstars receive in NXT.

The WWE is a dream for many professional wrestlers, who have toiled away in the independent circuit. After all, WWE is known to pay their talents handsomely, especially if they are great at selling merchandise. WWE has also started recruiting more talent thanks to their NIL program and tryouts at major Premium Live Events.

When speaking about talent development and recruitment at the JPMorgan Global TMT Teleconference, WWE CEO Nick Khan touted how WWE pays female Superstars in NXT at the same level as the men, making it clear how things stand now.

”We pay our women as well as we do our men.”


The women’s division of NXT is usually given as much emphasis and presentation like the men’s vision, which is certainly a major step up from how things used to be back in the day.

Quite a few top WWE Superstars over the past few years have come from the women’s division, especially the likes of Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, and Rhea Ripley to name just a few. Regardless, fans are certainly glad to know women are being treated better in WWE now and it remains to be seen how well they continue to develop the female wrestlers in NXT.

What’s your view on what Nick Khan said? Are you happy that women are given more importance in WWE? Sound off in the comments!
