8. Shane McMahon – $2.2 Million
The current Commissioner of SmackDown Live returned to WWE in February 2016 after more than seven years away from his family’s company and it seems that he made the right choice since he only wrestled two matches in 2016 at WrestleMania and Survivor Series and still managed to pick up a bigger paycheck than his sister Stephanie.
Shane has been as present a fixture on WWE TV over the past year, as his sister has, but it seems that the two matches are the biggest difference between them and are the reason why Shane has come back into this list inside the top ten of the highest paid WWE stars in 2016.
It seems that despite his two matches, Shane still hasn’t managed to earn as much as his father, who has only appeared a handful of times the entire year.
