Alberto El Patron Claims NXT Talent Are Being Underpaid

Alberto El Patron Claims NXT Talent Are Being Underpaid

Alberto El Patron recently spoke with Justin Barrasso for Sports Illustrated Extra Mustard‘s Week In Wrestling.  He commented on NXT superstars, and new top heels and faces not being paid for their matches. 

It’s horrible for the business, but you cannot blame that company. That company is doing what a company is supposed to do—monopolize, get the best talent from everywhere, and try to destroy the competition. They’re smart, you cannot blame them. The problem is with the talent. Just going there to be there with the promise of being on TV, but not even charging good money for your work, is not good business. We as wrestlers need to remember that this is a business. We started because we love the business and we stay in it because we have a lot of passion for it, but you have to be rewarded for your work. I was there and saw some of the main guys, new top heels and new top babyfaces, get paid nothing for their matches. The new talent joining NXT is taking pay cuts to work there, sometimes even 80 percent less. You need to be rewarded for your work in a business.
