– In an update on last week’s report on how much WWE developmental talents make, it’s the beginners and some talents from the indies that are starting out at $24,000 or $25,000 per year for multi-year deals.
Most of the NXT Divas earn in excess of $50,000 because it’s believed they need more pay for their upkeep.
A lot of talents were given raises when they moved to Orlando from Tampa last year. Some of the football players start at more than $52,000 per year because they’re used to making six-figures.
The overall mean pay may be closer to $45,000.
