Update on the Accuracy of Orton's Annual WWE Pay
According to The Wrestling Observer, the $3.5 million figure that was reported in the TMZ article regarding Randy Orton's annual pay, must have included merchandising and all other bonuses/incentives figured in.
According to the Observer report, no one on the WWE roster, with the possible exception of special attraction talent like The Rock and Brock Lesnar, has a downside contract guarantee of more than $1 million. There might have been months when Randy Orton was making $291,666 per month working in WWE, but that was likely for only a short time, and it was because he was headlining multiple PPV events.
