Here Are The Surprising Amounts WWE Chairman Vince McMahon And Triple H Earned In 2016

Triple H is being lined up as Vince McMahon's successor in WWE, but the Executive Vice President's earnings in 2016 compared to the Chairman's might just surprise you! Hit the jump for the surprising details...

When WWE Chairman Vince McMahon eventually hands over the reigns of the company to his son-in-law Triple H and daughter Stephanie McMahon, it's widely believed that The Game will be the one who takes over for him. Right now, his official title is Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative, but it's clear that his work running NXT has essentially been a way of grooming him to ultimately take charge of WWE as a whole.

That's something evident from the money he's making as WWE's SEC filing of executive incomes has revealed that Triple H actually earned more than Vince in 2016. The latter is already a billionaire of course so he probably doesn't find it necessary to take too much money out of the company, but these figures are still extremely interesting.
 
Vince McMahon
Salary: $1,313,462
Stock Awards: $0
Non-equity incentive plan compensation: $1,739,063
All other compensation: $19,075
Total: $3,071,600
 
Triple H
Salary: $601,933
Stock awards: $499,992
Non-equity incentive plan compensation: $419,531
All other compensation: $2,471,961
Total: $3,993,417

The "all other compensation" likely refers to Triple H's on-screen personality; he was WWE World Heavyweight Champion in 2016 and competed in the main event of WrestleMania, so it makes sense that it was so much higher (his salary meanwhile is half that of Vince's). Throw in his work overseeing NXT and events like the Cruiserweight Classic and United Kingdom Championship tournament and it's fair to say that he deserves every single penny!
