Although John Cena has transitioned into a part time role in WWE, that doesn’t mean his value has gone down any less. In fact, his value has only gone up since his transition into a part-time veteran status in WWE. Cena is considered as one of the last few major draws remaining in WWE along with Brock Lesnar. It doesn’t come as a surprise that John Cena’s net worth in 2017 is $55 Million.
This is up from $35 million, which was John Cena’s net worth in 2016. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has said that with WWE’s recent live events failing to move ticket sales, John Cena is WWE’s biggest ticket mover. In 2017, John Cena is now a free agent who appears on both RAW and SmackDown Live.
John Cena’s salary for 2017 is reportedly $8 million. Mind you, this is his WWE salary alone and does not include merchandise sales and other endorsements. Not to mention, John Cena’s rising stock in Hollywood adds to his annual salary big time.
Among the WWE roster, John Cena is the second highest earner, with Brock Lesnar earning a whopping $12 million. That came as a surprise to some, as it was widely believed that John Cena’s salary was the highest in WWE.
John Cena has appeared in WWE for about half the year in 2017, but it’s expected that as the years go by, his appearances with WWE will go down. Cena himself has admitted that he knows his days with WWE are numbered, which is why he made the choice of not exclusively performing for one brand. However, his value in WWE is far more than previously thought, and that is well shown by John Cena’s net worth in 2017.
Apart from just WWE and movies, John Cena has made several appearances on Total Divas and is a regular cast member on Total Bellas. There’s no question that in the route he’s going on right now, John Cena’s net worth is going to continue to increase as the years come.
