Updated WWE superstars salaries

Below is the World Wrestling Entertainment superstars roster payroll that was taken from December of 2004 until March of 2006. The shown dollar amount beside each wrestler is the grand total that they earned from World Wrestling Entertainment in a one year period (downside guarantees, bonuses, and merchandise shares).

Some wrestler’s were given special privileges and bonuses in their contracts which can also be seen beside their total pay. All wrestler’s contracts begin and end at different months of the year, thus each shown amount is what that particular wrestler earned in a 365 day time period between December 2004 and Marchy 2006 (or however long they have been with the company).

All dollar amounts were rounded up/down (Example: $365,766 would be $366,000)”

I was suprised to see that there was a huge discrepancy between the salaries of Cade and Murdoch. Matt Striker, for all his appreances, apparenlty has the lowest salary, I wonder why....Simon Dean even has a higher salary than Matt Striker.

Simon Dean (Michael Bucci, born June 5, 1972) is a professional wrestler performing for World Wrestling Entertainment. He is currently the Talent Development Manager for WWE

I think this party explains the salary discrepancy.
