TJ Perkins, the wrestler that portrays Manik in TNA, revealed on his Ask.FM page how much income he makes. Here’s what he had to say when the question was asked:
“My contract was started midway thru the year last year but altogether with salary+appearances I was on pace for roughly $75,000-$84,000 for a year period. That’s if my schedule is as busy as it was last summer/fall. Also that’s only counting TNA. I’d make a lot more if I kept up with other bookings outside but I just don’t. I’m also guaranteed a huge chunk of that regardless of if I wrestle or not. So it’s pretty ok considering I do what I love. I’m on the low end on the roster too. Most guys do way better than me.”
Manik also revealed that his contract with the company is coming up in September.
