Former WWE champ Brock Lesnar remains top of the highest-earning stars in the wrestling promotion with a hefty $10m salary.
The 43-year-old ex-UFC superstar was ahead of John Cena and Roman Reigns in the company's best-paid male stars in 2019.
And Forbes now reports that Lesnar, who dropped the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36, has retained his status as the top earner in the company.
The 'Beast' signed his current deal "when AEW was rumoured but had yet to launch," according to David Bixenspan.
However, the Forbes writer has suggested that Lesnar will "surely see his guarantee rise even more when his deal is up for renewal."
Reigns came second with a $5m salary and fellow WWE star Randy Orton took the third spot on the list with $4.1m.
Orton, 40, signed a new five-year deal with WWE last November amid intense speculation that AEW could attempt to snap up the future Hall of Famer.
Forbes reports that the WWE superstar "could be earning as much as $6 million in 2020 and beyond."
Also making the top five include Seth Rollins and WWE executive vice president of global talent strategy and development Paul 'Triple H' Levesque.
Posted below are the top 10 salaries in WWE for the 2019-20 period.
10. Braun Strowman: $1.9m
9. Stephanie McMahon: $2m
8. Shane McMahon: $2.1m
7. Goldberg: $3m
