WWE pays the big bucks to showcase wrestling’s biggest stars.
Roman Reigns, The Undertaker, Randy Orton and Becky Lynch are some of the biggest names in wrestling.
WWE chairman Vince McMahon is even willing to splash the cash for superstars who wrestle just ONCE per year.
An example of that is John Cena, who lost to ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 36 last year, but is believed to have banked £6.6million, according to information released by The Mirror.
Meanwhile, Brock Lesnar, who is now a free agent, earned a whopping £9.3million.
Below, you can see how much WWE’s biggest male stars earned.
Dolph Ziggler – £1.2m
Kevin Owens – £1.5m
The Undertaker – £1.9m
The Miz – £1.9m
Seth Rollins – £2.3m
AJ Styles – £2.7m
Randy Orton – £3.5m

Meanwhile, there were some surprises in the women’s salaries.
Bayley earns £150,000-per-year, despite holding the SmackDown Women’s Championship for a combined 520-day reign.
Meanwhile, Ronda Rousey, who is still under contract with WWE, is the highest earner.
The Baddest Woman on the Planet has not been seen on WWE television since losing her Raw Women’s title to Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 35 in 2019.
Lynch is the second biggest earner, followed by her former rival Charlotte Flair.
