Thanks to Dario Mendoza for sending this in:

I was just reading your article on deadline.com‘s story about Kevin Dunn’s salary. I wanted to bring the following to your attention, in case you weren’t aware. As a publicly-traded company, the WWE is required to file a proxy statement each fiscal year containing qualitative and quantitative disclosure of officer compensation, including salary, equity, and all other types of compensation (e.g., bonuses, perquisites and so on). This information is freely available to the public through the Securities and Exchange Commission website. The easiest way to find this information is to use "EDGAR", which is a search engine for SEC filings.

Below, I have linked you to the latest proxy statement of the WWE, which was filed last month. It contains compensation disclosure for the five chief WWE officers, including Vince McMahon and Kevin Dunn.

Thanks to Ayanam Udoma for sending this in: Just thought I’d share this video with you of Austin doing a "rick roll" and dancing along to Rick Astley’s "Never Gonna Give You Up" if you haven’t come across it yet. It’s hilarious!
