Being a wrestler for the WWE isn’t easy. You might think it’s all theatrics, but professional wrestlers are some of the best athletes in the world. While not every WWE wrestler becomes a star, those who do can make a pretty comfortable living thanks to their salaries and endorsements.
Many of these legendary wrestlers have also been able to carve out a role in other careers and business ventures, which only adds to their fortune. The net worths of these WWE wrestlers might make you consider trying your hand in the ring.
Brock Lesnar — $22 Million
After becoming the youngest WWE Champion at the time at the age of 25, Brock Lesnar’s career and net worth have taken off. He began his career as a colligate wrestler and turned pro in 2000. He defeated The Rock to claim the title, but four years later, left wrestling to pursue an NFL career.
Lesnar’s football career didn’t go very far, so he instead went to fight in the UFC, but by 2008 he was back in the ring. Today, he earns a crisp $5.5 million salary just from WWE.
