Despite what Jerry Lawler said, female WWE roster not told that they would get paid for Greatest Royal Rumble

Earlier this week, Jerry Lawler stated on his podcast that he believed that the female WWE roster would be getting a nice payday for being excluded from the Greatest Royal Rumble show.

Lawler’s statement may just be his own speculation and not based on anything he’s heard from anyone in management because, as noted on Twitter by Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there has been no indication given to the women about a payoff for this show.

It would be a good gesture on WWE’s part. It should also be noted that there were house shows scheduled for this weekend but they were canceled so that they could get the male roster to Saudi Arabia. If I were in charge of WWE, I would at least compensate the women for the pay they are losing for the canceled shows.

Here is what Melzer said on Twitter in response to fan tweets:
