• The Sandman Reveals His Salary For Doing 2 Moves At WrestleMania 23

WrestleMania 23 in 2007 was an incredibly successful pay-per-view for WWE.

The event drew 1.2 million pay-per-view buys, the 2nd highest in WWE history (only behind WrestleMania 28).

On this show, The ECW Originals (Rob Van Dam, Tommy Dreamer, Sabu & The Sandman) defeated The New Breed (Elijah Burke, Marcus Cor Von, Matt Striker & Kevin Thorn) in an 8-man tag team match which lasted for 7 minutes.

During a virtual signing for Captain’s Corner, ECW Legend The Sandman revealed that he got paid $40,000 for this match and he was incredibly happy about it.

Below is what he said:

“Dude, $40,000 to do two moves! I did a leg drop from the top rope on (Matt) Striker who was laying over the top rope and I did a clothesline over the top rope on [Elijah Burke].

Got a f**king check like two months later while there were 8 guys in the match and we were fit on the card of 8 and the main event was — I forget what was after us but then the main was [Donald] Trump shaving f**king Vince McMahon.”
