WWE has issued its 2019 proxy statement to stakeholders ahead of next month’s annual shareholder’s meeting, and it was revealed that Shane McMahon (who has no corporate role) was paid $2,082,011 as a wrestler.
Throughout 2019 he wrestled 15 matches, so this works out that Shane McMahon earned circa $139,000 per match, although that isn’t totally accurate as he would have been paid for appearances where he did not wrestle as well. Regardless these types of payoffs would make him one of the highest-paid wrestlers in WWE and on a per match basis, only surpassed by Brock Lesnar, The Undertaker, Goldberg, Triple H, and Ronda Rousey.
Over half of Shane’s matches were on PPV and included a match against Roman Reigns in Saudia Arabia, where the payoffs are known to be far higher than usual. His final match of the year would come on the 4th October episode of SmackDown when he lost a Loser Is Terminated ladder match against Kevin Owens.
