People say/complain about this a lot and I understand where they're coming from but two things:

1. You're worth as much as people will pay you. So that's on the owners.
2. Economically, based on the amount of money they make for their employer, they're underpaid in some cases.

Where did you get these? And I'm hoping you accidentally put an extra zero in Khali's number.

Guaranteed money. They can make more based on appearances and stuff. That's why it's nice for jobbers to get put in lumberjack matches on PPVs.

So for the guys who don't have first class flights or accommodation paid for, do they have to pay their own way and accommodation?

Many don't fly that much at all. They rent cars and go from show to show.
