WWE Superstars are among some of the best-paid athletes in the world. It has been rumoured for many years that Brock Lesnar is one of the highest paid stars that are currently contracted to the company despite only making a handful of appearances each year.
John Cena seems to have adopted the same philosophy recently by only making a number of appearances for WWE while he instead spends a lot of his time filming movies, appearing on TV shows, and hosting awards events outside of WWE.
The company releases a list of the highest paid wrestlers every year and it seems that this year is no different but for a change, it is someone other than John Cena who is topping the list.
It comes to the surprise of many of the WWE Universe when they read through these kinds of lists because most fans are unaware of how much wrestlers actually earn and will now be shocked by the insane amount WWE has agreed to pay some of these superstars in order to get them to sign a contract.
The following is a list of the 15 highest paid WWE superstars in the current year, and some of them may surprise you.
