According to PWInsider, WWE announced the corporate salaries for Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, Triple H and other executives as part of the company’s stockholders meeting filing.

  • WWE Chairman of the Board and CEO Vince McMahon$1.4 million in 2017, a mighty figure that is expected to remain constant in 2018.
  • WWE Co-President George Barrios$783,510 in 2017, will be $870,000 post-promotion in 2018.
  • WWE Co-President Michelle D. Wilson$791,044 in 2017, will be $870,000 post-promotion in 2018.
  • WWE Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events & Creative Paul “Triple H” Levesque$650,000 in 2017, will jump to $684,000 in 2018.
  • WWE Executive Vice President, Production Kevin Dunn$909,560 in 2017, will increase to $925,000 in 2018.

The afore-mentioned salaries as revealed by the company on March 7, 2018 neither include on-camera pay nor the fortune amassed by the executives via WWE stock dividend payouts.

As for those related to Vince McMahon, their salaries for on-camera performance were also revealed in the filing:

  • Stephanie McMahon earned a total of $2.2 million between her role as Chief Brand Ambassador and on-camera performance.
  • Triple H grossed an additional $1.5 million for his on-camera role. As per calculation, WWE paid him almost double to be “Triple H” compared to what the 14-time WWE Champion made as WWE Executive, Paul Levesque.
  • Shane McMahon who is reportedly not an executive in the company also made $1.3 million in 2017 for his on-camera role as the Commissioner of SmackDown Live.

 

Noteworthy mention: In 2016, Paul Levesque garnered a massive $3.5 million in WWE pay (including an extra $334,000 in company shares that vested), as per Forbes. That gigantic figure made Levesque the highest-paid executive in terms of cash payouts topping even WWE Chairman, Vince McMahon who made a total of $3.1 million between his then-base salary ($1.3 million) and then-cash bonuses ($1.7 million).
