- There haven’t been any complaints coming out of WWE over WrestleMania XXX payoffs. It was expected that with the WWE Network launching, WrestleMania bonuses would be drastically reduced.
Steve Austin, The Rock and Hulk Hogan were paid a flat fee for their segment at WrestleMania XXX, instead of the usual deal top stars get based on a percentage. This was done because they weren’t pushed ahead of time and did not work a match.
– Former NFL star Shawne Merriman had been training to be a wrestler and an announcer, reportedly signing a deal with WWE around WrestleMania time. Merriman is no longer under contract and has no affiliation with WWE.
