WWE is the biggest wrestling promotion in the world and has changed the entire pro-wrestling industry, turning it into a global phenomenon. Being a giant company, it has multiple streams of income and has a massive revenue flow every year. WWE Superstars are no less than celebrities and some top Superstars have become multi-millionaires over the years.

Through years and years of hard work and passion, these Superstars have become who they are today and helped WWE reach the heights of popularity and success. But have you ever wondered which WWE Superstars are the wealthiest?

Let's take a look at the top 10 richest WWE Superstars currently.

Note: We have not included WWE Chairman, Vince McMahon in this list, whose net worth is over $2 Billion, way more than any of the WWE Superstars on this list.


#10 Mick Foley

Starting this list is the hardcore legend of WWE, Mick Foley (Real Name: Michael Francis Foley). The three-time World Champion is one of the most beloved and respected WWE Superstars of all time, having had a memorable career with WWE, before retiring from in-ring action in 2012, followed by a Hall of Fame induction in 2013.

Mick Foley's estimated net worth in 2020 is $18 Million, making him one of the richest WWE Superstars at the moment. In addition to succeeding as a wrestler, Mick Foley is also the author of several bestsellers that have surely helped increase his wealth.


#9 Chris Jericho

Tying with Mick Foley with an estimated net worth of $18 Million is Chris Jericho (Real Name: Christopher Keith Irvine). Considered by many to be a modern-day icon, Chris Jericho's wrestling career has spanned over three decades, making him one of the longest-tenured active wrestlers in the industry with a plethora of experience.

He's best known for his work with WWE, where he has been a six-time World Champion. Currently, he is under contract with All Elite Wrestling, the newest and biggest competitor of WWE. Y2J is one of the biggest players in AEW and was crowned as the promotion's inaugural World Champion.

Chris Jericho is also into music and serves as the lead singer of his own rock band, Fozzy. Even at the age of 49, Chris Jericho seems to have a lot of gas left in the tank and it would take some years before he retires from in-ring competition.

#8 Big Show

Next up on the list is the World's Largest Athlete, The Big Show (Real Name: Paul Donald Wight II). Through his hard work and dedication to the WWE (and the wrestling business in general) all these years, he has made sure that his bank account is also one of the biggest in the company. Having an estimated net worth of $20 Million, the Big Show makes the list of the top 8 richest Professional Wrestlers.

Courtesy of his time with WCW, the Big Show was able to get himself a huge contract with WWE and has since been a part of the company, making appearances to this day and helping the company put over some of its younger stars. Apart from performing in the ring, the Big Show has also tried his hands in movies and he recently got his own show on Netflix, The Big Show Show.


#7 Brock Lesnar

This might come as a surprise to some of you because the WWE Universe generally considers Brock Lesnar (Real Name: Brock Edward Lesnar) to be very rich. And while he is indeed one of the wealthiest Superstars in WWE's history, he doesn't make it to the top six.

At an estimated net worth of $22 Million, the Beast Incarnate has made a lot of money, being named as the top-paid WWE Superstar of 2019, even after making limited appearances. There's no doubt that WWE considers him to be a top draw and this is one of the many reasons why the company has put the World Title on him numerous times in the last few years.

Brock Lesnar has also had immense success in his MMA career, becoming the only WWE Superstar to have held both the WWE Championship and the UFC Heavyweight Championship.

#6 Hulk Hogan

Hulk Hogan (Real Name: Terry Gene Bollea) is considered by many to be one of those Superstars who have had the biggest impact on WWE and the entire pro wrestling industry. He was indeed a huge reason behind the popularity of WWE during the 80s and early 90s.

While at one point, Hogan was estimated to have a net worth of over $100 Millon, he has lost a huge portion of it over the years and is currently estimated to have a net worth of $25 Million. The 12-time World Champion and WWE Hall of Famer continues to make special appearances for WWE and has even teased coming out of retirement for one more match.


#5 Kurt Angle

Tying with the Immortal One with an estimated net worth of $25 Million is the Olympic Gold Medalist, Kurt Angle (Real Name: Kurt Steven Angle). Being a huge name even before joining WWE, Angle was able to mint millions of dollars by doing what he did best, wrestling.

The WWE Hall of Famer has also wrestled for multiple other promotions including TNA/Impact Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling. He returned to WWE in 2017 and has since played different on-screen roles. After being released by WWE earlier this year, Kurt Angle has remained busy with his business, Physical Fit Nutrition.

#4 Triple H

Triple H (Real Name: Paul Michael Levesque) has become a massive pillar for WWE in the last few years since transitioning into his executive position. Serving as WWE's Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy & Development, senior producer of NXT, and a part-time WWE Superstar, Triple H has an estimated net worth of $40 Million.

He has had a remarkable career in WWE over the years, winning as many as 14 World Championships, and several other titles. He is one of the front-runners to take over the company after Vince McMahon and if that turns out to be true, he'll surely add a lot more to his wealth in the years to come.


#3 Stone Cold Steve Austin

At #3 on this list is the Texas Rattlesnake, Stone Cold Steve Austin, who is one of the biggest fan favorites in WWE history. Being well known for his ability to raise hell, Steve Austin was WWE's top guy in the Attitude Era and became famous for his iconic rivalry with Mr. McMahon. The storyline of an employee making his boss' life miserable connected immensely with the fans watching the product.

While Austin was forced to retire from in-ring competition in 2003 due to his injuries, he surely made a lot of money as the company's top guy. His estimated net worth is a massive $45 Million. Since retiring as a pro-wrestler, he has tried his luck in movies. Moreover, he has his own podcast and a beer brand. We all know his love for beers, don't we?

#2 John Cena

One of the most popular WWE Superstars of all time, John Cena (Real Name: John Felix Anthony Cena Jr.) gets the second position here with an estimated net worth of $55 Million. A record 16-time World Champion in WWE and a sure-shot future Hall of Famer, the Leader of Cenation was the face of the company for a long period of time, having countless memorable feuds.

While he has become a part-timer in the last few years, WWE still calls him back every once in a while and the WWE Universe loves to see him back. John Cena is primarily focused on his Hollywood career, being featured in some massive movies recently.


#1 The Rock

Topping the list as the richest WWE Superstar is The Rock (Real Name: Dwayne Douglas Johnson) with a massive estimated net worth of $400 Million. The People's Champion has been one of the most popular and loved WWE Superstars and has achieved immense heights of success in his Hollywood career as well, becoming the highest-earning Hollywood Actor in 2019.

As a 10-time World Champion, The Rock has had a Hall of Fame-worthy career. He is undoubtedly the biggest mainstream wrestling star, who surely has a lot more to give to the entertainment industry. As for his net worth, I'm sure it'll keep on increasing in the years to come.
