VINCE MCMAHON’S WWE salary has been revealed – with the billionaire wrestling chief pocketing just over a million-a-year in wages.
That’s according to WrestlingInc.com's Raj Giri, who gained the information from WWE as part of a proxy statement ahead of the annual shareholders meeting.
And that was not the only interesting figure announced with it emerging both daughter Stephanie McMahon and her husband Triple H received a £15k pay rise.
CEO and Chairman of the Board McMahon’s salary for the current year is the same as he received in 2019.
Meanwhile, both Stephanie and The Game, Chief Brand Officer and the new Executive Vice President, Global Talent Strategy and Development, will both pocket £571k in 2020.
Those figures are base salaries, and do not include stock options or bonuses – and in the case of the wrestling power couple – extra pay for being an on-air talent.
The 74-year-old Vince, worth an estimated two billion dollars, has essentially been WWE’s head honcho for decades and he was regularly an on-screen talent during the 90s and early 00s.
Over the past decade he has taken a step back and now performs much of his work off-camera.
However, despite relaunching the XFL, he remains a constant presence at Monday Night Raw, SmackDown and pay-per-view events.

Triple H, 50, had held the title of WWE's executive vice president of talent, live events and creative until his new one was revealed this week.
He shot to stardom for his work in the ring as a 14-time world champion, but last competed in the ring against Randy Orton in June 2019.
Now he focusses on continuing to grow the NXT brand he founded, which now ranks equally alongside Raw and SmackDown and is aired weekly on the USA Network.
Stephanie, 43, has held her position since 2013 and also has plenty of experience of performing on-screen in storylines.
