-- A number of WWE wrestlers were said to be shocked over the apparent $20 million payoff Floyd Mayweather is getting for his appearance at WrestleMania. Many believe that it's a worked number because they couldn't accept the figure as possible. Additionally, some wrestlers felt that their WrestleMania payoffs -- traditionally, the biggest of the year -- will be sized down if Mayweather doesn't draw enough pay-per-views buys. If the $20 million figure is accurate, the show will need to do about 1.8 million buys to economically justify Mayweather's price tag. Last year's show finished with a record 1.25 million buys. One person directly involved with the situation was told that Mayweather's figure is actually $1 to $2 million plus a significant percentage from the amount of PPV buys. However, Shane McMahon, a leading executive, said it was $20 million to the media.
