Kevin Nash Says Wrestlers Were Paid $75 Per TV Day In 1994, 'I've Seen People Owe The Company Money'

Kevin Nash comments on pay in 1994.

Kevin Nash became one of the highest-paid wrestlers the sport had ever seen in 1996 when he jumped from WWF to WCW alongside Scott Hall. Nash was one of the top stars in WWE before he jumped to WCW, but the pay in 1994 was nothing compared to what he would end up making in WCW.

"We got paid $75 for a TV day and that was to cover hotel, food, and a rental car. 90% of TVs were done in the northeast. You tell me how many people, even in 1994, $75. (It didn't cover the room), let alone a town car, gas, going over a couple of bridges. Horizontal bridge was $7 back then. You could get a $200 draw against your Pikeville house show payment of $170. I've actually seen people get checks and owe the company money, not even making $200 a day on the road," Nash said on Kliq This.

The business has certainly changed.

Nash was the WWE Champion from November 1994 to November 1995.
