WWE released a proxy statement to its shareholders Tuesday, revealing the 2021 salaries of Vince McMahon, Triple H, Stephanie McMahon and Shane McMahon.

According to WrestlingInc.com's Marc Middleton, Vince is earning $1.4 million for his role as WWE's chairman and CEO, Triple H is earning $730,000 as executive vice president of global talent strategy and development, and Stephanie will make $730,000 as chief brand officer.

Meanwhile, Shane was only listed as having an on-screen talent contract, for which he will earn a minimum of $820,369, per H Jenkins of Ringside News.

Triple H and Stephanie are also receiving compensation for being on-screen talent. Triple H will make at least $1 million, and Stephanie will earn at least $750,000.

It was also noted that Triple H's talent contract runs through March 30, 2022, although it will automatically extend by one year at the end of each cycle unless one of the parties informs the other that it no longer wants the extension.

Stephanie has the same arrangement with her current talent contract running through Oct. 6, 2021.

Both Triple H and Stephanie remain occasional on-screen characters, although they focus primarily on their behind-the-scenes jobs with Triple H running NXT and Stephanie building the WWE brand.

Shane has been appearing on screen often in recent months, and he faced Braun Strowman in a steel cage match on Night 1 of WrestleMania 37 on Saturday, which was won by Strowman.

Vince is also committed to behind-the-scenes work, although he opened WrestleMania 37 by thanking the fans for sticking with WWE through the COVID-19 pandemic and welcoming them back to a live WWE event for the first time in over a year.
