WWE superstars are global entertainers who put their bodies on the line to entertain the fans. Just like the catchphrase of the company, ‘Now, Then, Forever’, they perform on a non-stop basis for the TV shows as well as the Live Events. In return, Vince McMahon and Co. give them the biggest amount of paychecks those are rare to other promotion employees.

At this point, he is one of the most trusted shoulders of the company who is one prime superstar of the Raw roster.
4. Roman Reigns – Net Worth: $12 Million

Roman Reigns is the franchise player of the WWE without whom the top 5 richest WWE superstars’ list would be incomplete.

3. Brock Lesnar – Net Worth: $12 Million

The Beast Incarnate has been the biggest box office attraction for the WWE ever since returning to the WWE in 2012.

2. Triple H – Net Worth: $40 Million
Average base salary $3.2 Million
The Cerebral Assassin of the WWE has been in the company for almost 25 years now who is now responsible for running the NXT brand. But he is the EVP of talent relations who has more official tasks to do than wrestling in the ring. However, this long tenure as well as having WWE share possession takes his property worth to a new limit and makes him one of the top 5 richest WWE superstars.
1. John Cena – Net Worth: $55 Million
Average base salary $10 Million
The Cenation Leader has carried WWE’s baton longer than anyone could ever think before moving away to the Hollywood industry. His global fame has made him a huge mainstream name that WWE loves to have on TV on a regular basis. Unfortunately, that can’t be the case since he has moved his focus towards movies. But he took his net worth above than $50 million, already that keeps him at number one in the top 5 richest WWE superstars’ list.
