The issue of pay for the women excluded from the Greatest Royal Rumble has come up again this week and it was addressed in the recent Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
The latest is that the subject has not been brought up as of a few days ago. The last word on this was that none of the women were paid bonuses for that weekend and they were not expecting it. It’s still possible that it could happen because the guys haven’t been paid yet for that show. If it does happen then it would be a surprise to the women.
The stories about pay for the women came up a few days before the show on Jerry “The King” Lawler’s podcast. Lawler hinted that the women would likely get a nice payday for the show.
It should be noted that there were shows originally scheduled for that weekend but they were canceled because the male talent had to be in Saudi Arabia so there is an argument that women should be paid for shows that they would have been booked on if not for the Greatest Royal Rumble show.
