There’s been talk of Becky Lynch’s contract with WWE coming up and negotiations of a new deal in recent months. During an interview with TV Insider, she made clear she expects to make out very well in that deal:
“I should be making more in that whole company, everybody — Vince McMahon included. I want to change the game. I want to prove that it doesn’t matter your gender, your race, your background, if you are doing the job and keeping people invested, if you are keeping people interested, then you deserve to be paid at a level higher than anybody else. Or as high as anybody else. As high as the best of them. I look around the arenas and the majority of the people are in my shirts. The majority of people hold signs for me, so pay me as such and that will be the way it will be.”
That sounds like she’s in character as much as anything but it’s hard to argue with the fact that she deserves to be paid equal to those who are pushed at the same level. She’s one of the top stars in WWE, and is coming off winning a major title in the main event of WrestleMania last year.
That may not deserve Vince McMahon level of pay, but it absolutely deserves the same level as the likes of Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, and other top stars.
