Hey I have a question... A big deal is made when certain columnists and recappers leave certain sites for another. Almost always they bring up money for one reason. I know our fearless leader CRZ went through some drama with Wrestleline, and Im not saying money was the issue, but Im curious. What kind of money is or was paid to a top notch columnist or recapper by a website? I know Z didnt want to air his finances for the whole web to see, so maybe a ballpark figure will do. Im just curious if its serious money because some of theses guys make it seem like they need to hire an agent to negotiate a deal or whatever.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it....

Dude, you have on idea. I can't confirm this, but I hear that Scott Keith just signed a multi year deal with the smarks for over $200mil, making him the highest paid recapper on the net. Personally, I think Z got screwed when Wrestleline started bringing in cheaper Japanese talent.

I was making $200, and a tangerine per column which was nice.

Actually I noticed this discussion prop up up TheSmarks too. As far as I know, 99% of columnists make nothing...especially working on a major website. Or maybe I'm just missing out. I've *never* been paid for writing. I've had a few offers from websites but it's hard to know just how serious they actually are.....which is why I prefer working at a site where I can just pimp my Amazon Wish list, and get things sent to me for free :-)

Did people actually buy stuff for you? I'll have to ask Next Mideon if he got anything.

I think the only profit TNM gets is when he steals from me.

I'm glad most writers don't get paid. In general, I think the work of the unpaid is better than the work of the paid, due to the fact that the unpaid writers are doing it 'cause they WANT to do it, not 'cause they HAVE to. Money is eeeeeeee-vil. :)
