How much money are the top guys pulling a year?

How much do guys like Stone Cold and the Rock still make from the WWE?

Will that ultimately spell the end of the WWE?

Don't have hard data, but would bet the ranch that, in the past decade, John Cena has made the most money, by far.

I'd put his net worth in the $100 million range.

Really? I dont see it. I know he probably sees a pretty penny from merchandise sales, but I dont see him taking in a huge salary.

I would say more like 25 million.

Randy Orton pulls about 3 to 4 million a year.. his divorce settlement was posted online and it showed what he was making a year..
Austin best year during the attitude era.. he pulled about $15 to million which included royalties for merchandise, endorsements and his wrestling.. all combined. It was disclosed when the WWE went public..
Financial statements..

I Think the average mid career pulls between $200,000 to $400,00
Top stars between a 1 million and 5 million...

HHH executive job pays about $900,000.00
Plus stock and perks...
He probably gets paid extra for the Times he wrestles thru out the year...

Big show had a guarantee contract for a million a year..
When it expired about 2 or 3 years.. they didn't offer him the same money / deal ( old contract was given during the Monday night wars)
That's why you didn't see the big show for about 6 months..

Since the WWE is a public traded company..
All the WWE employee salaries which includes wrestlers are disclosed yearly..
Should be somewhere on the WWE financial website..

I remember Vince's disclosure a few years ago being about a $175k yearly salary. But, that was for his "position" within the company. I guarantee that, as owner, he makes a shit-ton more than that annually.

Check out Linda's filings that were disclosed during her two campaign runs. That's not even everything!

Public companies don't post all individuals salaries.  Just the officers and such.

I think high profile managers/mic talent are needed badly right now.

Paul Heyman has the best mic skills in the WWE right now, and he doesn't even wrestle  Roll Eyes

Bray Wyatt's speeches are already stale. Who else is good on the mic these days? Cena?  Undecided

Orton?  Cry

What year was this though?

125K in 1986 was pretty not bad... Especially when there was no big money TV deals back in the day.
