WWE Battlegrounds buzz has already died down for most gamers, but the wrestlers are reaping the benefits.
Fightful Select reported recently that those involved were told they'd be getting a hefty check for the game as far back as months ago.
WWE video game paychecks aren't quite what they used to be, as most talent will tell you, but they're still pretty good. One WWE talent told Fightful they were told they'd get a $35,000 bonus for appearing in the game, which doesn't figure to sell anywhere near what the usual annual games are. There were others that faced confusion, as they'll be included in the downloadable content, but were told they wouldn't be offered the bonus because they didn't have main roster contracts as of yet.
