• Triple H Reveals The Minimum Salary For RAW/SmackDown Wrestlers
Triple H is retired from in-ring competition and is more focused than ever on developing WWE’s future stars.
During an interview with Athletic, Triple H had the following to say about WWE hiring College Athletes:
“You look at all the kids in college football that didn’t get to the NFL, what’s the difference between the ones that made it and the ones that didn’t? Not much.
You go past that, you look at a hammer thrower. After college, what are the job opportunities for a hammer thrower? Or a woman that is an amazing track star? Coaching?”
The Game then revealed the minimum salary of a wrestler on RAW/SmackDown:
“The money in wrestling is real. Wrestlers on the main roster for RAW or SmackDown earn at least $250,000 annually.”
