Despite only working 8 matches in 2019, Brock Lesnar has once again topped the list as highest paid WWE Superstar.
Forbes contributor David Bixenspan released the 2020 Highest Paid WWE Superstars list this week, which reveals several names which have occupied the top ranks over the years.
The biggest standout is RAW Superstar Becky Lynch, who was revealed as the highest paid female on the WWE roster making $3.1 million in 2019.
WWE Superstars are paid with a set downside guarantee, as well as revenues from merchandise and live events.
Superstars generally make 5% of direct merchandise sales at events, and WWEShop.com, plus 25% of revenue from third-party licensed sales.
Forbes gathered the information contained in the list from WWE filings, analysis on sales metrics, and interviews with industry analysts.
The list does not include WWE Superstars who are currently on a leave of absence, such as Ronda Rousey, and those who aren’t part of the active roster such as John Cena. Jon Moxley (Dean Ambrose) was also omitted from the list due to leaving the company last year.
Also included is 3 members of the McMahon family, including Triple H, Stephane McMahon and Shane McMahon. For an in-depth look on their earnings, check out a previous article outlining those details.
