The payoffs for the first few pay-per-view shows following WrestleMania with
the new formula are in and according to reports, are said to be described as
“really bad.” Many are speculating that this points to the fact that talents are
getting paid based on pay-per-view revenue and are seeing nothing extra from all
of the pay-per-view revenue that has been eliminated due to the WWE Network.
It’s worth being mentioned, however, that there are a few people that are
being “taken care of” and a few who have specific deals that prevent this type
of thing from affecting them, although for the most part, this has hurt pretty
much everyone when it comes to payoffs for pay-per-view shows.
