Former Women’s Champion Reveals Her WWE Royalty Check



Former Women’s Champion Debra “Madusa” Miceli posted a photo of one of her WWE royalty checks on Facebook last night. She since deleted the post but the photo remains. The photo shows that WWE recently paid Madusa $305,563.46 in royalties. It provides an interesting look at how WWE pays past performers.

 

The check is legit but people are wondering if she was really paid $305,000 or if that’s how much the DVD’s listed made. Madusa’s comments on her Facebook indicate that she received that much money from WWE. She said after taxes, she will see “next to nothing” of that $305,000. Hopefully we get some kind of clarification soon.

 

The breakdown looks like this:

 

* She was paid $39,921.21 under a “Direct Video” category for her appearance in what appears to be WWE’s Top 50 Most Shocking Moments DVD.

 

* WWE paid her $171,431.78 under the “Video” category for her appearance on the Greatest Superstars of the 90′s DVD.

 

* Under the same category, WWE paid her $81,014.78 and $9,891.90 more for the “Most Shocking” DVD.

 

* Madusa was paid $3,303.79 for her appearance on the WrestleMania Box Set.

 

The check from WWE indicates that she was paid the $305,563.46 for a time period of October 1st, 2011 to December 31st 2011.
