It was reported several weeks ago that WWE might have stopped paying The Revival. The talented duo were taken off the road last month after it was clear that they would not be re-signing with the company when their contracts expire this year.
However, it seems like despite all being under contract, Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson aren’t the only WWE stars who are no longer receiving payment from the company.
Braun Strowman has implied on Twitter that as he isn’t working live events due to the Coronavirus pandemic, WWE has stopped paying him. Strowman’s last appearance came earlier this month at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view.
I get paid when I work. Private contractor. So nothing is coming in at the moment

Strowman’s revelation came after a fan asked him if he was being paid less by WWE because of the fact they are working a reduced schedule due to the Coronavirus.
Due to the pandemic, WWE is not running house shows and is only taping Raw and SmackDown shows at the Performance Center in front of no fans.
This all comes after Strowman claimed on Instagram that out of work independent wrestlers should “change professions” if they cannot afford to pay their bills.
Several indie workers have had their bookings cancelled due to the pandemic. As a result, some of the wrestlers have set up GoFundMe pages to try and make some money.
Evil Uno published an Insta post asking people to support indie wrestlers during this awful time period.

There is no word on if Braun is the only WWE star who is no longer being paid by the company due to the fact that he isn’t working. For the latest on this story, stay tuned to WrestleTalk.com.
