He would be perfect in Rizin
Hes doing great things in pro wrestling right now with Team Filthy, one of the best parts of MLW Fusion each week
lawlor vs grandmas/boxers/kickboxers/etc making mma debuts incoming!
Do you know how much that kind of stuff pays? Also, what kind of contracts do these performers have?
Hes in the indies which means hes not signed to a major promotion like WWE or New Japan
The indy guys may have contracts with different smaller promotions but for the most part they are independent contractors that are free to book themselves out to different shows all around the country
Indy wrestling business is booming right now and the top guys(Cody Rhodes, Rey Mysterio, Joey Ryan) can get anywhere between 2000 to 15000 per booking
You figure 2 to 3 bookings a week and that starts to add up fast
Add in merchandise sales, a lotta these guys make a huge chunk of their money from a website called ProWrestlingTees.com, and were talking a quarter million a year on the low end
Oh does that $2000 to $15000 ever go down if you're not Rey Mysterio Jr (one of the most popular wrestlers of all time). Many indy guys get $50 to $200 per show. It can be absolutely brutal until you become established.
Yes people with less experience, less work history and less qualifications make less money, thats how business works
Obviously. But I needed to give the opposite end of the spectrum to more probably answer Pyreen's question. Rey Mysterio's price tag doesn't apply to 99.9% of indy wrestlers. In fact there were articles written on how huge that $20,000 was for the indy scene.
Thanks for the info. Sounds more profitable than low to mid level MMA esp. since you dont have to pay for trainers, camp expenses etc.
more Tom Lawlor on the independent wrestling scene I am okay with. His last couple months especially he has been outstanding on the indy pro wrestling landscape.
Sucks he lost this job though of course.
He doesn't have a great look.
I don't see money in him.
