Bengaluru, August 22: The situation was volatile for the WWE at the beginning of this year when All Elite Wrestling started its run as the brand new rival.

Backed up by a billionaire, Tony Khan, they grabbed a huge deal on the TNT Network to air the weekly shows from 2019 fall which will begin a TV rating war. AEW will broadcast the Dynamite show on Wednesday nights while NXT will run in the same slot on the USA Network.

Rumour: WWE want THIS STAR to end Undertaker's career at Wrestlemania

Apart from that, there will be a tug of war for signing fresh talents as well as those who will be free agents in due course. It was thought that AEW could target the marquee names of the WWE to snatch them out of the biggest pro-wrestling banner of the world. But WWE had a counter-attacking strategy and it helped them retain most of the big names.

They have offered lucrative deals (with an additional amount of money) to all of the recent signees for an extended period as well. Most of them have signed for either three or five years to confirm their commitment to the brand.

And now, The Dirty Sheets has published an exclusive report (via wwfoldschool.com) on the contract details of these WWE superstars. Here is a look at them to learn about the whopping amount of money they take home, per annum, while entertaining us.
