All Elite Wrestling came up as an alternative for professional wrestlers in 2019 and seems like the company is doing wonders for the bank accounts of their superstars.
Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that the stars used in AEW as enhancement talents are paid more than a lot of NXT superstars.
The company is paying fixed income to those who have signed contracts, for example, Jade Cargill, while other superstars who work AEW Dark are paid on an appearance basis.
“For the newcomers, those talents are as a general rule higher paid than NXT talents, but would be lower paid than WWE main roster talent but obviously things vary based on individuals.”
This is an interesting piece of information, as it would open up doors for a lot of unused WWE talents to make a switch to the Jacksonville based promotion.
Several WWE stars like Miro, Tay Conti, and Serena Deeb have recently joined All Elite Wrestling.
