– Jim Ross has updated the Q&A section on jrsbarbq.com and was asked about some of the WWE talents being worried how the WWE Network will hurt their pay. Ross replied:
“I’d suggest that they worry about more of the things that they can control and that’s their in ring performances and how they grow as a professional. Mid card and Prelim wrestlers NEVER made big money on PPV’s but had good years by staying healthy and being booked and working steady. I can’t see WWE not paying their talents fairly. Remember, most issues with wrestlers are about the two C’s, Cash and Creative. It’s always been that way and likely always will.”
