Talent Meeting Held Before Raw, WWE Issuing Talent Increased Payments & More
– There was a talent meeting held before Monday’s RAW in Dallas, Texas. Talents were given the chance to speak up about being unhappy and reportedly, nobody did. The meeting apparently ended with everyone being told to use common sense and be careful with social media.
– We noted before that some of the WWE midcard talents were upset about being paid just $500 per night for working the recent tour of Central and South America. The reason given by a source was that talents are usually paid more for international tours but this one wasn’t as successful.
In an update, WWE officials sent out a memo to the talents who worked the tour and said there was a clerical error when payments were done. New, increased payments are to be issued to the talents soon.
