• “He’s proven that time and again” – Jim Ross On Paul Heyman Making Wrestlers Better
When someone becomes a “Paul Heyman Guy” on WWE programming, their stock immediately rises.
The same thing happened with current Universal Champion Roman Reigns last year.
He was already the #1 guy in the company, but after aligning with Heyman, he reached another level.
On his podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross praised Paul Heyman for helping wrestlers.
Here’s what he said:
“Heyman’s got a great eye for talent. He’s proven that time and again. He’s proving it now. He’s making Roman Reigns one of the biggest stars in WWE’s recent history.”

• WWF Developmental Wrestler Passed Away 13 Years Ago Today At The Age Of 32
On this day in 2008, we lost former Old School WWF Developmental Wrestler Steve Bradley (Real name: Steven Bisson), who passed away at the very young age of 32.
He was found dead in a parking lot. His cause of death was not determined, autopsy results were inconclusive.
A month before his death, he was indicted on possession of heroin charges, but Police doesn’t believe any foul play was involved in his death.
Steve Bradley was signed to a World Wrestling Federation contract from 1998 till 2002, but didn’t make it to WWF TV in those years and only competed in dark matches and at House Shows.
During those years, he was sent to various official WWF developmental territories, such as Memphis Power Pro Wrestling, Ohio Valley Wrestling, Memphis Championship Wrestling and the Heartland Wrestling Association.
In 1999, Bradley trained with then upcoming superstar Kurt Angle, under the guidance of coach “Dr. of Desire” Tom Prichard.
When Angle was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2017, he mentioned Steve Bradley and thanked him for being an unsung hero.

• The Undertaker Reveals What He Would’ve Done If He Hadn’t Become A Wrestler
During an interview with the Dallas Morning News, The Undertaker was asked what he would have done if hadn’t got into pro-wrestling in 1987.
Here’s what The Phenom said:
“It probably would have been the military. Like I said, I’ve always been one to really know what my strengths, my weaknesses, my capabilities are and aren’t.
I doubt if I would have had a very long run in European Pro Basketball, but I do see myself – if I had to join the armed forces I probably would have been a career guy.”
The Deadman is expected to get inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame in 2022.

• “For WWE, I think there was an overreaction when AEW started” – Former World Champion
Tony Khan started All Elite Wrestling in 2019 and they are the #2 pro-wrestling promotion in the United States.
AEW had a Wednesday Night War with WWE’s developmental brand, NXT, for a while, which they won.
When AEW first started, WWE started offering new, big money contracts to their wrestlers and began signing more indy wrestlers, in order to make sure they can keep as much wrestlers from signing with AEW as possible.
However, last year, WWE began releasing a lot of talent, even top stars, and a lot of them ended up joining Tony Khan’s promotion.
During an interview with TV Insider, current AEW wrestler Bryan Danielson (former WWE Champion Daniel Bryan) said that WWE overreacted when All Elite Wrestling came to existence 2.5 years ago.
Here’s what he said:
“For WWE, I think there was an overreaction when AEW started. Even when [indy wrestling] got real hot with Cody [Rhodes} and The Young Bucks. WWE felt they needed to sign up all the talent.
They realized, ‘our business is fine’. AEW is catching up. They’ve done incredible for a company that has been around for less than 3 years. WWE is still making a billion dollars, so they don’t need to hoard all these talent.”

• Backstage News On How Much Money Top WWE Stars Are Making
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE’s top stars get paid over a million dollars per year.
While Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar are the highest paid superstars in WWE today, where they make over $5 million per year, other top stars make around $2-3 million per year.
These are their guaranteed salaries, which means additional income from merch sales, etc aren’t included.
It was also reported that an un-named WWE Superstar is making $4 million per year.
These salary numbers are more than what WWE was offering their top stars a couple of years ago on an average.
In 2019, Braun Strowman was getting paid $1.2 million per year and Becky Lynch was on a $1 million per year contract. Strowman is no longer with the company, while Becky got a raise after she officially became the #1 female star in WWE at WrestleMania 35.
