The Ten Richest WWE Superstars Of All-Time Have Been Revealed

WWE's ten richest wrestlers of all-time have been revealed and it comes as no surprise that Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson tops the list.

Johnson wrestled for the promotion during the 'Attitude Era' and was one of wrestling's biggest stars during a huge boom period.

He then transitioned into acting and became a Hollywood success, with his wealth now standing at a whopping £240 million.

Only two of the men on the list are regularly active in wrestling today.

Brock Lesnar last appeared in the main event of WrestleMania 36 when he lost the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre, while Chris Jericho currently performs for All Elite Wrestling.

Former UFC star Lesnar is currently the highest paid superstar on the WWE roster, with Forbes claiming he earns a $10 million salary.

The 42-year-old has also earned an insane amount of cash from his days in the octagon, with Game 7 claiming he earned $5 million for nine fights.

Former UFC heavyweight champion Lesnar's pay package continued to increase from his first fight with Frank Mir, in which he pocketed $250,000.

Despite the fact that Lesnar lost on his UFC debut to Mir at UFC 81 in 2008, he continued to make more money with the MMA promotion.

The South Dakota native then secured his most lucrative pay package in his final fight against Mark Hunt at UFC 200 in 2016, which earned him an incredible $2.5 million.
