Appearing on The Whole Story podcast with Alex Feuz, Rose gave his payout for one of the appearances.

"Well, it's strictly a retired baseball player getting a gig, and that gig paid $50,000 to do WrestleMania, and let me tell you something about WrestleMania. I say this constantly. I have never met a wrestler there that wasn't a good guy. Backstage, Big Show, Undertaker, Stone Cold, Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, they're all great guys behind the scenes. I love the wrestlers. They're entertainers. They understand they got a good gig going. I watch them a couple of times a week now. I root for Charlotte, Ric Flair’s my buddy," he said.

Rose did not specify which WrestleMania he received $50,000 for.

He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2004 and returned as a guest host for WWE Raw on March 22, 2010.
