Forbes released their first-ever list of “WWE’s Highest-Paid Wrestlers,” ranking the ten active WWE Superstars who earned the most money from the company in 2015.
They spent the last year compiling their estimates based on court documents, SEC filings, contracts and information from industry insiders. They estimated WWE’s top earner took in around $10 million – huge money but not the same ballpark as top athletes and movie stars.

John Cena: 9.5 million Brock Lesnar: 6.0 million Triple H: 2.8 million Randy Orton: 2.7 million Seth Rollins: 2.4 million Roman Reigns: 2.1 million Undertaker: 2.0 million Big Show: 1.5 million Kane: 1.3 million Dean Ambrose: 1.1 million
