Jim Ross details why Chyna left WWE and why he wasn’t paid as much as Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Undertaker. – WWE Sports

Jim Ross and Conrad Thompson Cina In this week’s “Grilling JR” episode. Ross talked about her rise as one of the biggest stars of the Attitude Era, her relationship with Triple H, and the circumstances surrounding her departure. WWE, And her personal problems and demons she dealt with until the end of her life.

Jim Ross talked about China’s salary after she became a star. “She was probably the first female wrestler to make seven numbers. In other words, she earned over $ 1 million. I was in charge of it, so I know it’s true. She’s a salary. She’s a man in the main event and was really well paid for being booked with HHH, who was really well paid for evolving his game. She’s a lot. But never found true happiness. That’s the sad part of the whole story. “

Ross was asked. “For the actual creative, let’s put the contract conversation on the table for now. Was he (Jeff Jarrett) always going to drop the belt on Chyna, or was it the same day decision?

Ross replied: Such a simple. So yes, China was going to be an intercontinental champion. “

Ross was then asked, “What I mean is, did it not happen, did he sign it, or was everything business as usual?”

Ross said, “She was still going to be the champion. Will it be that night? Maybe. Perhaps to add some sizzle and shock value to the PPV where people were paying a lot of money. But yeah, my guess about it would be that she was going to get it either way that night. History in PPV where Joanie became the champion and didn’t know what would happen It was a plan, remembering that I was planning to make one. “

Ross talked about China leaving WWE. He said. “We decided not to renew her contract. We wanted her to save her face. We wanted her to leave without dying with a sword. As a result, I wanted her to leave. Decided that it would be a mutually agreed farewell on the road. It left her some trust. It didn’t make her look like a victim, it didn’t want her to be. I’m not sure. She might have wanted to be a victim, and if he’s against big heels and has an insurmountable chance of overcoming them, babyface will. She got sympathy that would be. She met Vince, and he stopped meeting her. She thought she might still be booked or used on TV I’m here. I don’t know why I kept taking her to TV. It was a waste of money and a waste of her time, so I put it in a bud. We gave her I thought I made a really good offer.

People have to understand this. 400k (provided to Chyna) was probably more than she was making than when she was making a million. She isn’t booked if she gets injured, as she has more downsides. I plan to earn about $ 8,000 a week. If she rolls again, regains her creative roll, and invests in her character as before, there is clearly a chance to make more money and top the card. Her deal to me was “I’m as valuable as Stone Cold is to WWE.” Chyna Stone Cold Steve Austin Therefore, she knew that some people were making the downside of millions of dollars. He was one of them. That was a magical number. At that time, it was the number you tried to achieve because it was the top wage grade if you were talented. This is 19,000 and changes weekly. Many took it because they got it. Jericho and I were talking about it today. He spent about $ 2 to $ 3 million on the downside of about $ 350,000. It’s there to make. That is the incentive. That’s why it works so well. Her deal was “No, I don’t need a $ 400,000 guarantee, I need a $ 1 million guarantee.” Because she wanted exactly what Austin and Undertaker, and some of those cats were making. She was never thrown into their light or used in their way. That wouldn’t have been a good investment for us. Now, if Vince said to me, “Hey, she’s broken heart. She’s been unlucky here, somehow, somehow, somehow, give her that. It’s his money. But that’s not what he wanted. “

Ross was asked what he thought would be China’s heritage. “She did something world-class that no other woman had ever done. These women, no matter where they are, where they work for any company, or who make money, Chyna. You can look back on the legend and express your gratitude. She broke the ground that they are walking now. “
