Forbes, which often reports lists of the wealthiest Americans, is reporting that WWE’s Executive Vice President, Director, and Television Producer — Kevin Dunn — made a base salary of $746,154 in 2010, $680,400 in restricted stock awards, and $359,000 in other income. In total, he made $1.7 million last year. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, this makes Dunn the highest paid non-wrestler in WWE other than the McMahon family.
Speaking of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, according to early plans by the company, August’s flagship summer pay-per-view WWE SummerSlam will be headlined by John Cena vs Alberto Del Rio for the WWE Championship as well as Rey Mysterio vs R-Truth. Plans, as always, are subject to change, however. Just a few weeks ago, there were plans of Mysterio facing Del Rio and R-Truth facing off against John Morrison. Those plans were altered when Morrison suddenly got injured.
