According to the latest filings with the SEC, WWE entered into a new
three year agreement with Stephanie McMahon where she is referred to as a
wrestler with a salary of $325,000 per year plus added bonuses. She is
also entitled to royalties from product sales which will obviously add to
the $325,000 figure every year. The contract – which is published in full
- is a performer/wrestler contract which means that McMahon will not
vanish from your television screens anytime soon. The contract was signed
on October 18 with Jane Geddes, Senior Vice President of Talent Relations
and Development, representing WWE. McMahon signed the contract using her
full name of Stephanie McMahon Levesque. You can read the contract on
section 2, page 40 of the document at

    Fair enough. I actually like her as a on-screen persona w HHH as The Authority.

  2. mackdeezy says:

    As long as she gets in the ring here and there im all for it.

  3. Matt says:

    Gotta cover everything legally just in case.

  4. gerry says:

    She should be at home taking care of her kids

  5. Scott II says:

    I’m with Paul. She plays her part VERY well. Anybody who thinks otherwise wouldn’t know a good heel if they saw one

  6. LOL says:

    Just show me the funbags!

  7. Mike S says:

    Interesting that, despite their continued promotion of the whole “superstar” moniker nonsense, the entire contract mentions the term “wrestler” repeatedly.

  8. DBRude says:

    Don’t they pay her already? Why does she need a separate contract?

  9. cas says:

    she’s so F’n HOT!

  10. Kerry says:

    DBRude – It’s a legal issue, I’d say. You wouldn’t sign a WWE Superstar to VP contract, would you?

  11. Fisha695 says:

    @Mike S, the term “wrestler” is used legally because of the various state & local athletic commissions. Technically she wouldn’t be a “superstar” either she would be a “diva”.

    @DBRude, this is basically a legality thing for insurance and stuff like that.
