Why is it also called the World’s Richest Weekend in Western Sports? The American is known as “the world’s richest one-day rodeo” and pays out $2.5 million annually through a series of qualifiers, The Semi-Finals, and the final event, RFD-TV’s The American. The event unites the top athletes in the world from the PRCA, WPRA, and PBR world standings and pits them against underdogs who advance from The American Semi-Finals, together to battle for the biggest single paycheck of their lives.
