WWE No Longer Paying Talent Premium Live Event Bonuses

Dave Meltzer revealed on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio Program that WWE Superstars will no longer be receiving any bonuses when it comes to Premium Live Events or special events taking place in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia just like Crown Jewel, but they will receive the amount of money stated on their WWE contracts such as $1 Million and nothing more.

Meltzer also noted that top WWE Superstars and merch sellers such as current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns could still be receiving bonuses or more than other talents, but that isn’t the case for most guys.

This is what Dave Meltzer said:

“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.”
