Exclusive: TJP reveals the pay difference between WWE and his current schedule
- There's a common idea that WWE is the big kahuna when it comes to cash, but now former WWE Cruiserweight Champion TJP has opened up...
The WWE Universe was shocked earlier this year when former WWE Cruiserweight Champion TJ Perkins left the company.
The winner of WWE's first ever Cruiserweight Classic, and former TNA X-Division Champion would go on to seemingly becoming a mainstay of WWE's 205 Live brand - before disappearing late last year and then being released from the company earlier in 2019.
But how much does TJP earn now in comparison to his time in WWE? Well, in a conversation with myself, Perkins revealed all.
Elaborating on his 55 appearances confirmed for this year between May and November, TJP told us he's now earning double what he did in WWE.
You can check out our entire interview with TJP here.
I don’t really have a destination in mind to land. I’ve had contact with basically everyone but I don’t know that I have time to start until the winter and by then I may have filled that schedule already.
I’m enjoying the freedom, I’m falling in love with wrestling all over again.
I’m financially doubling what I would have if I had stayed in WWE.
I may never want to give this freedom up. If I do land somewhere, a certain amount of freedom and flexibility will have to come with it.
TJP said he could do as many as 70 shows before 220, even after having between four and five months of inactivity.
Once everything pending gets set, I believe it will be somewhere around 60-70 shows altogether for the rest of this year. Imagine if I had been able to schedule the first five months!
