- It’s believed WWE is getting at least $100,000 per week for the new Main Event TV show on the Ion Network. This figure is believed because they were getting that much for Superstars before it left regular TV. They are also getting paid between $60,000 and $75,000 per week for Saturday Morning Slam and around $175,000 for the new third hour of RAW each week.
– We noted earlier that Alberto Del Rio’s entire family was at the recent WWE NXT live event where he teamed with his brother Memo Montenegro and Ricardo Rodriguez. The Herald reports that Del Rio and his wife are expecting a girl, their second child.
Del Rio’s family that was present for the tag match included his mother, his wife, their two-year old son, Memo’s girlfriend plus family friend and indy wrestler Pablo Marquez. His wife recorded the match to show to their father, Dos Caras. Del Rio’s mother traveled all the way from Mexico to watch the match.
