#10 Braun Strowman - $1.9 million
Braun Strowman won his first world title at WrestleMania 36 as he defeated Goldberg to win the Universal Championship. Strowman, who was considered to be one to make it to the top a few years ago, but WWE did not pull the gun on his push to win a world title.
The Monster Among Men is highly-rated backstage, which is evident with the huge contract he signed last year. Strowman signed a four-year deal with WWE, which was reportedly worth $1.2 million per year. He will reportedly earn around $1.9 million, which includes the $1.2 million contract as well as merchandise sales and performance fees.
