WWE is paying Braun Strowman big money now that they’ve locked him down to a new deal.
Strowman revealed he had signed a new WWE contract back in July after reports surfaced that he inked a contract with the company.
Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the new four-year deal is believed to be for $1.2 million per year. Although there are exceptions, it was noted that $1 million is usually the top downside figure the company offers.
Other WWE talents who have signed new deals have guarantees above the $1 million thresholds.
Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson recently signed five-year deals worth $700,000 per year each after they had previously turned down a $500,000 per year deal. It was reported at the time that they were prepared to leave the company when their contracts expired.
The new deal will see Strowman remain with WWE until at least mid-2023 and is expected to maintain his role in the company as a top star.
