WWE executive, Paul Levesque aka Triple H, has revealed the least paid Raw and SmackDown superstars earn at least $250,000 per year.

Triple H made the revelation on Saturday while discussing WWE's WrestleMania Week tryouts targeted at current and recent college athletes.

UK Sun quoted the retired world champion as saying that the figure can rise to over a million dollars each year for those at the top of the card.

Speaking on recruiting college athletes, he told The Athletic, "You change the direction of their intensity and their focus, that becomes this massive ocean of talent for us, not a tiny pond. In the beginning, it was a puddle. Now it opens up massively, and we’re getting there.

"You look at all the kids in college football that didn’t get to the NFL, what’s the difference between the ones that made it and the ones that didn’t? Not much.

"You go past that, you look at a hammer thrower. After college, what are the job opportunities for a hammer thrower? Or a woman that is an amazing track star? Coaching?"
