Rumor: WWE NXT Talent Could Get Get Pay Increase With USA Network Move


Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that all developmental deals in WWE are expected to be changed to main roster deals once WWE moves NXT to the USA Network starting on September 18.

This should be considered a rumor for now. The belief is that the top NXT talent will have new contracts closer to main roster figures than developmental figures.

For talents just starting, their contracts are between $40,000 and $60,000. WWE is likely to raise their offers for those who work in ROH or top independent stars. 

It should be noted that AEW is offering low six-figures for an easier schedule and a chance to be featured faster.
