What Is The Starting Salary For A WWE Superstar?

During the WrestleMania 38 weekend tryouts in Dallas last year, Triple H said that the minimum base wage for WWE Superstars on the main roster is $250,000 per year.

Since this is only a base wage, it's likely that certain RAW and SmackDown stars will make more money by appearing at Premium Live Events and selling goods.

However, superstars in the emerging brand are paid significantly less.

Dave Meltzer claims that the beginning pay for NXT performers ranges from $50,000 to $60,000, depending on their star power.

Former NXT athletes like Adam Cole and Finn Balor, though, are said to have made far more money while representing the company.

Balor, I'm sure, is making $250,000 or $300,000 or something comparable, but I don't believe anyone else is. They are most likely in the low $100,000 range.

They make between $130,000 and $150,000, according to a top NXT performer I know who has been with the organization for a long time. 

He should be making a ton, but he only makes $130,000. Even though Adam Cole might be earning more, he isn't. That is the scope.
