Last week, there was a report in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter about Emma (Tenille Dashwood) and her asking price causing promoters to decline using her own shows.
In this week’s Observer there was a clarification. Her asking price is $2,000 per show for shows outside of North America. In North America, her asking rate is $1,500 per show, round-trip airfare, hotel, and ground transportation. Hotel and ground transportation is usually provided by independent promotions so that is not unusual and the higher asking price is not unusual to ask for overseas bookings io90 flight and can mean that you would miss out on a regular booking because of it.
Emma is also asking for a 50/50 split of autograph and picture money and 100 percent of her own other merch money. All of this is not unreasonable and consistent with what other wrestlers have asked for their bookings. I think last week there was a perception of her being unreasonable but what she is asking from promoters falls in line with what other wrestlers ask for.
She will start taking bookings on February 1st and promoters can email her at email@example.com.
