No exact figure for Paul’s payment has been revealed, though he did provide some staggering insight. “Eight figures” is what Paul walked away at an absolute minimum just for the performance alone. “My deal was built into the back-end structure of how well the event performed,” he explained. “The event performed incredibly well.”
