Cody Rhodes, among others, haven't been secretive about green pastures outside of WWE.
With several wrestlers leaving the company over the past two years, it's becoming abundantly clear that there's plenty of money to be made post-WWE. Cody in particular has been vocal about the WWE's pay for work, noting that he's made more money in ROH, New Japan and the indies than in WWE.
When asked to reveal how much more he was making, Cody didn't give a precise number, he did break it down in comparison to matches and guarantees.
Former TNA Champion Austin Aries also departed WWE earlier this year and has been vocal about his pay, stating that his next six weeks will bring in more money than the last four months of his run in the world's biggest wrestling company.
"King of the Cruiserweights" Neville also walked out recently over disputes in regards to financial reimbursement.
