• WWE Reportedly Offering RETRIBUTION Lesser Money Than Other Main Roster Stars
The members of RETRIBUTION, excluding their leader Mustafa Ali, were offered new deals in fall of 2020.
According to Fightful Select, T-BAR, MACE, SLAPJACK and RECKONING were offered $250,000 per year for three years.
The amount of $250,000 is lower than what WWE has usually been offering to talents since 2019. This is also pretty surprising considering that 2020 was quite a profitable year for them.
Some of the recent call ups from NXT have been told that they can negotiate better deals with WWE when things normalize, but it’s unknown if RETRIBUTION members would be given such an opportunity.
As noted before, several WWE wrestlers passed on re-signing with the company, while some have decided to wait until the situation normalizes so they can get better offers from the company.
