WWE officials have seemingly gone above-and-beyond to make things special in this new era. The company is shocking the wrestling world once again with a major storyline, and new details have just leaked from backstage on how much money the talent is reportedly receiving, and how long they will be around.

Jordynne Grace made a shocking appearance WWE NXT on Tuesday night. The TNA Knockouts World Champion made her first World Wrestling Entertainment appearance in the Women's Royal Rumble Match earlier this year, and now she will challenge Roxanne Perez for the NXT Women's Championship at Battleground next month. Backstage details were revealed earlier, including how officials put a lot of effort into keeping Grace's NXT appearance a secret.

The Juggernaut is obviously still signed to TNA, but the 28-year-old has also reportedly inked a part-time agreement with WWE. A new report from Fightful Select notes that Grace is earning a payday worth at least six-figures.

The high-paying deal is for at least three appearances - last night's surprise show up, Grace's match against Stevie Turner to take place next week, and Battleground on June 9. It's possible that a few more dates could be added to the agreement.

Fans were not the only ones shocked over Tuesday's appearance by the inaugural Knockouts Triple Crown Champion. Backstage sources revealed today that Perez was just as stunned, but that was actually by design. The Prodigy is expected to be present for next week's Grace vs. Turner match.
