The checks for this year's WrestleMania were sent out to talent this past week and mostly everyone should have received them at some point within the past few days.

The only word going around right now is that the payoffs were better than people were fearing they would be, but around what everyone pretty much expected.

Originally, talent feared that because of the situation surrounding the WWE Network and the confusion as to how that affects pay-per-view bonuses, as well as the video game royalties coming in much lower than expected, talent were expecting WrestleMania checks to be much smaller than they actually ended up being.
