No, he is banging his daughter. Big difference. Man all the cruiserweight wrestlers have lower saleries, and they are more talented then some of the heavier guys (Mark Henry).

So Trevor Murdoch is the lowest paid superstar in the WWE at $48,000.

I can't say though that he looks too poor.

Actually it's that ugly bimbo Maria at a measly $40,000 closely followed by Matt Striker at $43,000.

By the way Matt Striker has the lowest salary, S43,000. How much do real teachers make in a year?

Carlito is making 300,000?? Damn! When he was i Puerto Rico he was making like 800 a week and that was only because his father owned the company.

Too much. ;) And to correct myself, Maria earns $41,000 not $40,000.

Makes sense, Triple H is married to Stephanie, Vince's daughter. Triple H is one lucky bastard. Oh and why are they paying Cena so much fucking money? He's too much of a Hulk Hogan hero, y'know, a person who the kids look up to. They need to pay Booker T a lot more, but those figures are old.

Figures that the Smackdown roster is basically getting fucked in the ass compared to the RAW roster's salaries.

My sympathies really go out to the guys in ECW. They're probably getting screwed even harder.

- Batista: $813,000 (First class flight tickets paid for every week)
- Big Show: $1,000,000 (Base salary)

These two things made the whole thing a bit unbelievable. Batista = SD's John Cena. Big Show = Stuck in Midcard Hell.

LOL.

Big Show is over paid. But yeah they seem to have trimmed down the salaries. Steve Austin and the Rock use to pull in huge fucking salaries that make HHH look like chump change.
