Top 10 Salaries of WWE Wrestlers


Watching WWE superstars performing their amazing stunts in and around the ring has often made people wonder how much they make. The answer to that question is somewhat complicated.

First of all, WWE never releases to the public the information about their superstars’ salaries. It has been a long-standing company policy and it isn’t changing any time soon. That being said, we can make a pretty accurate assumption from bits and details let out.

WWE wrestlers earn their money from several income streams. The most obvious is their contract with the organization, but they also receive money from sales of all personalized items, like action figures and T-shirts. Appearances on comic conventions also bring some cash.

As their clout within WWE increases and their popularity with the fans increases, they can earn additional bonuses, like a percentage of gate sales and, for the top tier performers, a cut of pay-per-view income. They also have significant perks, like first-class air travel or personal busses for tours.

And on top is naturally John Cena, one of the most popular WWE superstars in history. As he slowly moves to acting, his career in WWE is winding down, but he will still earn considerable money from it for the rest of his life.

Roman Reigns’ Best and Worst Moments of the WWE Universal Championship Rule

Roman Reigns had six attempts to capture the WWE Championship title, but he failed to do so. He had two defeats against Brock Lesnar before he managed to get to the final goal. However, his reign didn’t last long due to Leukemia problems, which surprised many WWE fans.

Reigns was ruling the pro-wrestling industry for 64 days, and his feud with Braun Strowman will be down in the books as one of the best. However, it is time to revisit Reign’s rule and remind ourselves of the best and the worst moments he had.

One Night After Winning the Title

Who would have thought that we would watch a S.H.I.E.L.D reunion on RAW? After Reigns successfully defended his Universal Championship Title against Finn Balor, Mr. Monster in the Bank Braun Strowman cashed in his MITB contract on Reigns. With the familiar music starting in the background, the fans could see Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins with the same black attire familiar to everyone. The trio literally destroyed Strwoman who ended thrown through the announce table.

Hell in a Cell against Braun Strowman

Only the biggest rivals have the opportunity to show the crowd who is better in a Hell in a Cell match. While the wrestlers are doing their best to beat the opponents, this is a true treat for the fans who get to enjoy a hardcore clash. Several feuds and rivalries are ended with this kind of matches.

Although Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman were the ones fighting, it was their allies that got more attention. Seth Rollins and Dolph Ziggler’s fall of the cell really took the breath away from the fans. Mick Foley was the special guest referee, but even he couldn’t save it for Roman. In the end, it was Lesnar who came out victorious.

Universal Championship Defenses on RAW

Kevin Owens was the last Universal Champ who defended his title on Monday Night RAW. After that UC matches became exclusive pay-per-view only. However, Reigns promised to defend his title, and his first opponent was Finn Balor. General Manager of RAW Baron Corbin betted against the Big Dog, but to his disappointment, Reigns emerged as a winner.

The S.H.I.E.L.D overshadowed the Universal Title

Although fans must be thrilled to see the popular wrestlers reunited, it overshadowed Reigns’ success, and the belt over his shoulder looked meaningless as the trio was getting prepared to face off one of the Dogs of War in non-title matches on RAW. The reunion could have been postponed allowing Reigns to enjoy and defend his title first.


The most shocking revelation happened on RAW. Roman Reigns stepped into the ring, and he broke character. He said that his name is Joe and he has been battling leukemia for the past 11 years. Because of the issues, he had to give up on his Universal Championship. It would be a small thing to say that everyone was shocked.

Reigns left his title in the middle of the ring, and then he left. His brothers from the team showed up, and they did the famous fist bump, perhaps for the last time. This was one of the most emotional moments of RAW, and the company shared a backstage video of superstars supporting and consolidating Joseph Anoa’i.

Roman Reigns has been one of the biggest names in professional wrestling, but his short rule was ended abruptly. The fans were hoping to see him go on and on to become one of the greatest, but that will not happen. With a lot of ups and downs during his reign, Roman has one battle he needs to win, and it will be the toughest battle of his life.
