Sept. 21, 2019
Which superstar earns the most in WWE? From Brock Lesnar to John Cena, checkout salaries of WWE superstars.
Despite being a part-timer, making sporadic appearances in WWE, Brock Lesnar continues to draw a fat paycheck from the company. The former Universal champion has a base salary of $12 million, highest among every other superstar on the roster.
It’s a fact that Lesnar is still the top draw in the company and any other brand, including AEW, will offer him any amount to add to their roster. He was expected to leave WWE after last year’s Wrestlemania but since then, Lesnar has been signing part-time contracts with WWE which will now see him face Kofi Kingston for the WWE heavyweight championship on Smackdown’s Fox debut next month.
Following Lesnar on the list is WWE superstar-turned actor, John Cena. He has a base salary of $ 8.5 million. Cena hasn’t competed in any pay-per-view event this year.
Though his act as ‘Doctor of Thuganomics’ at Wrestlemania 35 is talked still about and the segment was one of the biggest highlights of the show – it has 4.8 million on Youtube as of September 20.
Roman Reigns ($ 5 million), Randy Orton ($ 4.5 million) and AJ Styles ($ 3.5 million) follow Lesnar and Cena on the list.
Surprisingly, Seth Rollins’ base salary is less than that of Styles and Orton – $ 3.5 million. Since he got the push in early 2019, Rollins is expected to make financial gain when he is offered a fresh WWE contract.
The Undertaker, another top draw in the company, has a base salary of $2.5 million. Here is the list of top superstars and their base salaries:
Brock Lesnar ($12million), John Cena ($8.5million), Roman Reigns ($5million), Randy Orton ($4.5million), AJ Styles ($3.5million), Seth Rollins ($3million), The Miz ($2.5million), Undertaker ($2.5million), Kevin Owens ($2million), Dolph Ziggler ($1.5million)
In the women’s division, Ronda Rousey sits on the top of the list with a base salary of $1.5 million. Charlotte Flair comes next to her with a salary of $ 550000. Just like Rollins, Becky Lynch also finds herself below few superstars in terms of salary as she draws a base salary of $ 250000.
