    Takers earnings vs the pain.

    What does he get in total including everything the E pay him for a year? $8m? $10m? More?

    Would you be happy to get the hell knocked out of you with a steel chair and a hammer (although I doubt any of the hammer hits really made much contact at all) once a year for that? It probably worked out about half a mill per heavy shot at Mania.

    I have no idea how much he gets. I'm not sure how much money WWE superstars earn per week/year so I have nothing to compare against.

    But wrestling once a year for a LOT of money? I'd take 30 chair shots once a year for that kind of money!

    Then in that case, I'd definitely take the punishment of one brutal match every 365 days for that kind of money!
    He's earned that though, I mean he's been doing this shit for over 20 years, and he's one of the best ever. I'm just hoping he doesn't keep going until he can't 'go' any more.

    Hell I'd take 10 chairshots a day for that money.

    But seriously I don't know how much he gets, but he strikes me as one of the few guys where it isnt about the money.

    For sure. Obviously he's taking the money, but I'm sure that the actually ocassion means more to him, and the fact that he's helping the company who made him. Plus he gets the chance to work a match that has either been the match of the year, or at least hass ben a contender regularly.

    Between ticket sales and merchandise sales over Wrestlemania week im sure that there was enough revenue generated to pay each participant in every match at least 1 million dollars
