New documents reveal that former WWE Co-Presidents Michelle Wilson and George Barrios each receive $1.4 million over 18 months as part of their WWE severance package. They also receive a $176k bonus, plus health, life and accident insurance over the 18 month period as well.
The documents come courtesy of Wrestlenomics Radio.
Barrios and Wilson were fired by WWE on Jan. 30 as part of a management shake-up after 10+ years of service. Vince McMahon said at the time, "I am grateful for all that was accomplished during their tenure, but the Board and I decided a change was necessary as we have different views on how best to achieve our strategic priorities moving forward."
