• RAW Wrestler Is Now Going To Get Paid $50,000 Per Match In Saudi Arabia
WWE RAW’s Riddle signed with WWE back in 2018, and started his career in NXT. He got called up to SmackDown this past June, and got drafted to RAW during this year’s Draft back in October.
Dave Meltzer had reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter earlier this month that Riddle’s contract is set to expire in August 2021.
WWE was negotiating a new deal with him, and “he pretty much agreed to terms for a three-year deal at $400,000 per year guaranteed plus $50,000 for every show in Saudi Arabia.”
According to Fightful Select, Riddle wasn’t interested in the initial deal WWE offered him, but he signed a new deal which he liked last week.
If you want to compare Riddle’s Saudi pay to top stars, then Brock Lesnar was getting paid $1.5 million per Saudi Arabia appearance in his last deal, while Undertaker was on $2 million and Shawn Michaels got $3 million for his return to the ring at Crown Jewel 2018.
