WWE is the most secure financial organization when it comes to the world of sports entertainment. The contracted athletes to perform in this big-league owned by Vince McMahon get a huge amount of paychecks to produce the marquee events in the name of SummerSlam or WrestleMania.

In a recent report by express.co.uk, base salaries of the top superstars of the WWE were revealed for the year 2019. It once again raised the question of why WWE keeps this much gap in pay based on gender orientation.

In combined, Lesnar has competed only in eight matches on TV in 2019 to receive $12 million whereas the top earner from the women’s division is Ronda Rousey who drew only $1.5 million. It’s almost 8 times bigger despite the fact that Ronda featured in the main event of WrestleMania 35.

The same fact applies to Becky Lynch too who was the main-eventer of WrestleMania and perhaps the most popular superstar from both male and female division combined. Still, her base salary remains the same with so-called jobbers in the company from the male division.

Could 2020 bring a significant change to this gap? We hope the answer is yes or else an important aspect of Women’s Evolution will remain unfulfilled.
