The More You Know! -- How Much Your Wrestler Makes

As I was travelling up and down the interwebs... boom! I found something I wasn't even looking for: Wrestlers Salaries.

But before I post them, let me give you my reactions first...

First: CM Punk deserves every penny he gets. (Hell, he should also get accommodations, too!) Second: How the hell did Khali get so much money? Third: Zack Ryder... jobbed out for an extra 1.5% (guess that's a small price to pay for one's dignity).

It should be noted that this information is nearly impossible to verify and when reached for comment, a WWE spokesperson revealed the following:

"WWE will not comment on the specific details of our performer's salaries, but we can confirm that every member of our main roster talent pool makes a minimum of $100K per year."

Well, here we go people... look, comment and opine --
