Pro Wrestling Salaries

Please note that pro wrestling is a tough business in which to survive financially, unless you are at the top of the industry.  Here is a recent article which discusses the salaries of pro wrestlers:


These rates are for those established in the bigger promotions.  The question then becomes, “How do I survive as I become an established professional wrestler?”

Some longtime ring veterans do not like seeing fresh talent out selling merchandise during intermissions of shows, but some veterans do not mind as long as the new talent is respectful.  Other ways to earn a living while becoming a wrestler include:

  • keeping a part-time job (e.g. personal training, retail job, etc.)
  • affiliate marketing through the internet
  • selling autographs at local shows
  • helping the promoter with other jobs behind the scenes

It may not be glamorous, but wrestling can produce a living for you if you are smart.  Get RVD’s interview for some of his advice on how he survived during his early years as a pro wrestler.
