Did You All Know That Chris Jericho Lied About Chris Benoit's Yearly Salary On Larry King ?

Y2J said he was making over $1 million dollars a year, but that's pure b.s considering the rabid wolverine spent most of his WWE career as a high midcarder and hadn't been a full time maineventer since 2004. Benoit was not high enough on the WWE food chain to be making 7 figures a year and neither did he sell enough merchandise to be making 7 figures a year. Let's face it Chris Benoit t-shirts did not sell like hotcakes the same way Rey Mysterio t-shirts, John Cena t-shirts, D-X t-shirts, etc do.

Update:

Chris Benoit made nowhere close to a million dollars on a yearly basis. Here is how much his yearly salary was.

    Chris Jericho didn't lie.That was from 2004 or so.The latest anybody has on salaries is 2006.And even back then all they had was base salaries,not including merchandise,dvd sales.And all that money you get making appearances and doing things as being champion.Also you get more money when you're champion.And he was since 2004,a world champion,u.s. champion,tag teajm champion,royal rumble winner,and was a main eventer.He was training some people.He was for a short period the head person on ECW.He had matches on most pay per views.He was in every Wrestlemania from 04 to 08.And he was a veteran,main eventer,and one of the top stars.So of course he made well over a million dollars per year.

  • I don't doubt he was making 7 digits. He was one of their top performers and was a former World Champion. So I guess until you show me his actual figures, I'll believe Jericho.

    Okay, you showed me, good find. Now I believe you and not Jericho.
