WWE’s shows in Saudi Arabia are known to be big paydays for the involved stars but now the company is really showing that there is no limit to these numbers with outside stars who are coming in.
The upcoming Crown Jewel PPV will see 2 such outside stars making their WWE debut in Tyson Fury and Cain Velasquez and latest reports have revealed at least one of these superstars’s pay for the show.
Alex McCarthy of Talk Sport recently revealed via a tweet that the Boxer turned pro wrestler will be paid a staggering $15 million for his match at the upcoming event:
Tyson Fury will reportedly earn £11.9 million ($15m) for his date with Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel. [Daily Mail]
I've asked around and I'm told "it's in that ballpark."
This is a man who gave away his £2.5m purse from the Wilder fight to charity. I say good on him.

While we have previously seen reports of stars making money in six to seven-figures for their matches in the country, this is the first time an actual amount has been revealed and it’s taking things to another level.
Tyson Fury had a confrontation with Braun Strowman during the Fox premiere episode of SmackDown Live and he will now be facing the Monster Among Men in a singles match at the upcoming Crown Jewel PPV on October 31.
