Well that would be more. There are a lot of stars in wrestling but there are only a few who are such natural talents that it can be hard to believe they are that good. You see these people every now and then and they rarely disappoint. It can be amazing to watch these people rise through the ranks, and now one of them is going to have a huge rise in his bank account.
The end of AEW All Out saw the surprise return of Maxwell Jacob Friedman. Before Friedman came back to the ring, a voicemail played with AEW President Tony Khan announcing that Friedman was receiving an upgrade in pay but no specifics were given. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the raise will possibly give Friedman more than a million dollars a year. Friedman did not have to sign an extension, meaning his contract still expires on January 1, 2024.
Opinion: That is a heck of a raise and Friedman has certainly earned it. Friedman has gone from little more than a promising talker to one of the best promos in wrestling. That alone is going to make him into a big star and I can’t wait to see how far Friedman can go in wrestling. Let him do his thing and everything should work out, which is something worth a heck of a lot more money, which Friedman now seems to be receiving.
What do you think of Friedman’s deal? What is next for him in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
