WWE Crown Jewel 2018 Flashback: Huge Salary Revealed For Lesnar, HBK And Undertaker

Almost 2 Years ago, WWE hosted the inaugural WWE Crown Jewel pay-per-view event in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. This event was part of their huge deal with the sports authority of the country where they’re bound to host at least two PPVs, a year in the country. The significance of such events is that WWE and its superstars draw insane salaries to perform in such nights.

According to The Dirty Sheets, Saudi Arabia officials paid WWE $60 million for Crown Jewel 2018. WrestleMania shows don’t even come close to these numbers and you must not be wondering why the company is so much willing to go back to Saudi, as early as possible. However, this coronavirus pandemic has made things uncertain for any future events in the middle-east country.

Coming back to Crown Jewel 2018, out of this $60 million, WWE spent $40 million to just put up the show which was no less than a grandeur. The rest of $20 million was for other expenses (which included pay for talent) and revenue generation. With so much money being spent, the top 3 draws for the show got paid incredible salaries for performing in just one show,

– Shawn Michaels: $3 Million

– Brock Lesnar: $3 Million

– The Undertaker: $2 Million

Two time WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels came out of retirement to compete in a tag team match at Crown Jewel 2018 edition. He teamed with Triple H to take on The Brothers of Destruction – The Undertaker and Kane in the main event match. Brock Lesnar defeated Braun Strowman on that night to win the vacant Universal Championship.

Roman Reigns was originally scheduled to defend the Universal Championship against Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman in a Triple Threat at Crown Jewel but he went on a hiatus before the PPV due to leukemia diagnosis which led to a vacated belt.

D-Generation X vs The Brothers of Destruction was the billed main event of the show that appeared to be completely disastrous. Triple H ended up breaking his hand in the process while Kane lost his mask twice during the match as the competitors looked out of form. Speaking with Busted Open Radio, veteran Chris Jericho mentioned how Crown Jewel had to be the worst PPV show, ever to be produced by WWE,

“That’s exciting to me, but I never wanted to just…okay, well, the worst match I ever saw was Saudi Arabia, Triple H and Shawn Michaels vs. Kane and Undertaker. That was such a stupid idea in the booking. It never should have happened. It should have been Shawn & Hunter vs. Roman & Seth and Taker & Kane vs. I don’t know – give me two names of guys – Cesaro & Kevin Owens, whatever you want.”

Will The Undertaker Appear At WWE Survivor Series 2020?

Survivor Series 2020 edition is scheduled for November which is said to be built around The Undertaker. WWE’s last pay-per-view took place on October 25th in the form of Hell In A Cell event as the anticipation is already high for the final Big-Four PPV event of this year. It will indeed be very special in terms of hypes.

To be exact, Survivor Series 2020 will take place on November 22th where The Undertaker’s 30th-anniversary celebration will be a huge part of the show, according to Wrestle Votes. Rumors about the same were already there about the same, earlier this year. But there’s uncertainty about his presence due to the retirement at WrestleMania 36, following the Boneyard Match against AJ Styles.

However, now it seems that WWE might be planning the whole event around the Deadman. The interesting part is that there are no plans available for him to compete on the show, so far. So we can only assume that The Undertaker will be present in a special capacity on that night and perhaps the Raw and SmackDown episodes, leading up to the night.

“The upcoming 11/22 Survivor Series PPV will be built around the 30th Anniversary of The Undertaker, including him making a live appearance on the show.

A source states as of now, The Undertaker will not be wrestling at the event.”

WWE’s 30 Days Of The Deadman is also coinciding with the theme of Survivor Series 2020. This is the same show where the legendary wrestling athlete made his debut in 1990. Due to this, WWE celebrated the 25th anniversary of The Undertaker, five years ago on the same show. Reports also indicate that the Phenome is the particular reason why the company might leave the brand vs brand war, this time around.

The Undertaker finally pulled a full-stop on his storied career through The Last Ride docuseries, which covered the final three years of his in-ring career. But The Boss Vince McMahon did not want the fans to think that he’s done for good. This is why Vince insisted on adding the “Never Say Never” phrase,

“I had to send the last 15 minutes of the final episode [The Revelation] to the Chairman [for approval],” The Undertaker told Barstool Sports in a recent interview. “Needless to say, he did not like the ending. That’s why we had to put the “Never Say Never” line back in there, just to leave the door open.”

The Undertaker salary is assumed to be pretty high considering he’s the benchmark when it comes to the professional wrestling business. He’s not only competing on behalf of the WWE for the past three decades but most importantly, he’s the most trusted shoulder that Vince McMahon could’ve ever asked for.

Even today, when The Boss needs to pop up ratings on WWE TV, the easiest way is to make a call to The Deadman and hit that gong in an arena as fans go nuts about it. The craze of this scene remains the same even today, after so many years. So McMahon doesn’t have reasons not to load The Undertaker salary account with a huge amount of bucks.

Per month, the Phenome draws $166,666.67 while the amount is $38,461.54, on weekly basis. The daily amount is $7,692.31 which is pretty big for a part-timer.

It should be noted that he kept his kayfabe character intact for a long time until the last feud with AJ Styles during WrestleMania 36 where he appeared to be Mark Calaway.

This is the reason why he couldn’t be part of WWE’s usual promotional activities, mostly. Or else, The Undertaker salary could’ve been far bigger. However, WWE has allowed him to do some fan-meets in the recent past.

Alongside this, The Undertaker salary account receives a huge amount through the royalty paychecks from WWE. The company does sell a huge lot of merchandise around the greatest sports entertainer of all-time who has fans all across the globe and among all ages.

Moving forward, the American Badass persona of Taker will be projected more on TV rather than the Deadman character. This is what he has to say about his future in an interview with Barstool Sports,

“It was fun, at that point I hadn’t made the decision of whether I was gonna work or what I was going to do post this. It really felt good and I was like thinking to myself ‘I gotta run here if I want it’ and it was cool. We were out as they were setting up, doing the lighting and everything, I was taking that bike up and down the road. People in the neighborhood, their lights were coming on and I was like, this is fun, it was. Regardless of what I do on camera moving forward, I’m sure that’s the persona that I will continue to move forward.”

The Undertaker Confirms WWE TV Return As The Big Evil

Fans must be happy to know that they haven’t yet seen the last of The Undertaker when it comes to in-ring competitions. Following The Last Ride documentary on the WWE Network, he commented to be happy with his career on the way it ended against a Phenomenal performer like AJ Styles. This was apparently the comment fuelled up his retirement rumors.

Notably, WWE has never confirmed the end of The Undertaker’s career, ever. They had just posted #ThankYouTaker for whatever he’s done for the company for the past three decades. Vince McMahon made the most famous character in sports entertainment with him and he wants to bring it back when he feels like.

As reported earlier, The Undertaker noted how he could come back from the WWE Chairman needs him in the future. It is certain that he’d call him, someday considering how he didn’t like the finish of the Last Ride docuseries. So, there’s something bigger he must be planning for him. But the important part is that The Deadman persona won’t be on TV, anymore.

The Undertaker was responding to some IGN comments during a recent interview segment. A fan, made the following comment mentioning how he loved the American Badass gimmick,

“My favorite version of Taker is Big Evil. Just a kick-ass big guy. That’s all that is needed. bring back Big Evil.”

The Undertaker responded saying that the Big Evil was brought back as an experiment for the match against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36. It clicked as people loved the match and seemed excited to see the American Badass on TV after almost 15 years. But that wasn’t the last time, he was seen, either.

“Well, we kind of brought back a version of Big Evil for AJ Styles in the Boneyard [match]. I think that iteration of the character kind of brought all the 30 years together – it’s the American Badass, Big Evil…all grown up into one. Yeah, so that’s kind of where we’re at.

I think that’s where we’ll move forward when I do make appearances on TV.”

As you can see, The Undertaker sounded pretty confident about coming back to TV wiping out the chances of a retirement. At least, one last WrestleMania match is perhaps left inside him that Vince would live to churn out when the time seems right. But it would only happen when the fans will be back on WWE shows.

During the conversation, The Undertaker was also asked about a Dream Match against Sting when he stated the following,

“You know, I get that a lot. Sting stayed down in WCW for so long and then you know, he went somewhere else, and that window kind of closed and I know he kind of showed up at the end. The way people see that it looks much better on paper than it actually would’ve been. It’s one of those matches that people will talk about forever.”

The Undertaker Hints To Return In WWE For One More Match

The Undertaker is said to be retired from in-ring competition although WWE has never admitted, openly. It was Mark Calaway himself who expressed his happiness after featuring in a match against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36. He’d have no regret if not stepping into the ring, ever again after that Boneyard Match.

This was the statement released by The Undertaker by the end of The Last Ride documentation on the WWE Network, earlier this year. This was the way that WWE opted to end that docuseries on Taker’s life, calling it a curtain on his illustrious career. But that doesn’t mean that his career has really come to an end.

The Undertaker has previously noted how he would be open to doing one more match if Vince McMahon wants and that could be the case at next WrestleMania.

While speaking on My Mom’s Basement podcast, The Deadman discussed the ending of his WWE Network docuseries ‘The Last Ride’. He revealed that the WWE Chairman hasn’t liked how it ended. So it could be a matter of time that he comes up with a new plan to rewrite things.

Jodi Lynn Calaway: Lesser Known Facts About WWE Legend The Undertaker’s Wife

Thus, The Undertaker teased the fact that Vince may be planning to do something for him at next year’s WrestleMania.

“It was in my thought process. I have a whole group of people who are like, ‘You can go out and do this, people will go crazy.’ On the inside, I’m thinking, ‘I don’t move the way I used to move, it’s a watered down version.’

I also love this business so much and love performing. It’s almost like I needed somebody to put the bullet in there and stop. Once we started rolling with this, it was in the back of my mind, ‘I can get to a point where this will solidify it and I won’t have a choice.’

Originally, that’s where I was at until I had to send the last 15 minutes to the Chairman [Vince McMahon]. He didn’t like the ending at all. That’s where we put the line back in there, ‘never say never.’ I’m coming to grips with it. Obviously, as we get close to [WrestleMania], I’ll have that internal feeling like I should be getting ready for something.”

The Undertaker Hints To Return In WWE For One More Match 74

Things like this around The Undertaker’s retirement happened earlier where the WWE CEO sketched different plans. He doesn’t want the greatest sports entertainer of all-time to walk into the sunset in just normal fashion. Originally, the WrestleMania loss in 2014 against Brock Lesnar was supposed to mark the end for him but that wasn’t the case as Taker suffered a concussion.

He forgot what down during the match and thus wanted to do one more match. Then the loss against Roman Reigns could’ve marked the end but again The Undertaker wasn’t happy with his performance. He was dealing with a hip injury who required surgery to fix the issues. Hopefully, the legendary wrestler gets a fitting goodbye that he deserves, living up to the hypes after all these years of speculation.

AJ Styles Still Wants To Wrestle The Undertaker In Front Of WWE Fans

Going by the final episode of Undertaker: The Last Ride documentary series, The Undertaker is said to have wrestled his last match.

Since WWE has never admitted it, openly, there’re still some chances that he could be back inside the squared circle. If he decides to have another go inside that pro-wrestling ring, his final opponent AJ Styles will be waiting for him in a typical environment.

The Undertaker did receive one last match against the Phenomenal One, AJ Styles, as per his wish. But it didn’t happen inside that WWE ring.

They instead fought in a unique Boneyard Match at WrestleMania 36 in an abandoned house. Thus, the thinking was WWE would be preparing another match for them. Then the finale of the Last Ride docuseries declaring that he’s okay if that Boneyard Match would have been the last.

 

But AJ Styles is not satisfied with that experience as he wants to fight the Phenome, one more time, this time with an arena filled with audience. ViBe & Wrestling recently spoke to the former WWE Champion where he expressed the unfulfilled desire to work with The Undertaker again in front of the fans.

He would love to push his own body to the limit while wrestling the greatest sports entertainer of all-time. AJ Styles also mentioned how much Taker loves this business as he himself does.

The current Intercontinental Champion then mentioned how the Boneyard Match provided some unique opportunities for them that made the whole encounter an instant classic. However, wrestling amid the audience is a whole different experience.

“If that means that he returns to a ring and we face in front of thousands of people, I would not hesitate for a moment. but will it happen? Would he be able to accept it? Probably not. If he decided that his career is over, I respect it. He has already done everything he had to do and has said, ‘That’s it, I have had enough’, and believe me, I know what it is like.”

 

The Undertaker has always mentioned how he would love to be back in the WWE, again if and when the company aka Vince McMahon needs him. So we can’t really wipe out the opportunity to see these two lock horns yet again. Names like CM Punk and Big E do think that The Deadman will rise again and who knows if he’d step foot in the ring to wrestle AJ Styles again.

WWE Legend The Undertaker Opens Account On TikTok

The Undertaker has previously shed the in-ring character he possesses ahead of his retirement bringing out more of his Mark Callaway persona. Now he is showing more sides of being a human and not being a Deadman, anymore. He has recently joined popular social media app TikTok. The account can be found at @undertaker on the popular social media platform. He was yet to post any videos as of this writing.

 

Currently, The Undertaker has 47,700 followers on TikTok which is a video-sharing social media app that was launched in the fall of 2016. Based on China, this app gained immense popularity over the last couple of years. All kinds of people are attracted to it but mainly teenagers have made this infamous. There are reportedly more than 500,000,000 users on the site and most are under the age of 30.

While a name like The Undertaker joining TikTok, could attract more members from WWE Universe to the platform, the company producing the app is currently dealing with controversy ad reported by wrestlingINC.com,

 

“The Chinese parent company having authoritarian links to the Chinese government. There are user privacy and national security concerns from several countries, including the United States and England, which has led to the US government considering a ban on the app. Republicans and Democrats in America have both issued memos on the app with the Democratic National Committee warning campaigns to use extra security measures while on the app.”

Recently, India has also banned TikTok and 49 other Chinese apps. They have banned downloading these apps from Playstore and also asked the internet providers not to support connection for these particular apps. In this circumstance, The Undertaker being a member of TikTok is quite significant.

“I got a social media account, it’s probably less than two years, right? You know, the writing was on the wall,” Taker said. “I got more matches behind me than I do in front of me. And, people are saying like, ‘Dude, you need to get yourself out there because your wrestling career is coming to an end. Now, it’s time to cash in on the brand, you know, the stuff that you didn’t do all these years.'”

 

As of now, The Undertaker is done for with his in-ring career from the WWE as per the updates received during Undertaker- The Last Ride documentary.

He’s contended with the experience he had during the Boneyard Match at WrestleMania 36 against AJ Styles and he won’t mind if not stepping into the ring, ever. However, if WWE needs his appearance badly then he’d be in considering how loyal he is to the company.

Speaking in a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, The Undertaker’s final opponent, AJ Styles gave details on the incredible experience that he had while competing in the Boneyard Match at WrestleMania 36,

 

“There were definitely some crazy moments. Undertaker had to get stitches after he busted his arm open. That just added to the match, to be honest with you. Just being there and doing that particular match was awesome.
And I don’t know if everyone knows how long it actually took.

We started around eight o’clock, and we didn’t get finished ‘til about 4:30 in the morning. It was basically a movie, so we needed to get cameras in the right spot and walk through some stuff that was going to happen. I have a lot more respect for actors after working on those fight scenes.”
