Being a WWE Superstar is something that many young children grow up and aspire to be. Over the years the company has had some of the biggest names in the professional wresting industry step into the squared circle.
From Hulk Hogan to The Rock and Trish Stratus to Molly Holly. The list of legends past and present have made the WWE what it is today.
With being on the main roster comes its perks, especially when each individual puts their body on the line every time the step into the ring. As such, the Superstars earn a decent pay check ranging from millions to hundreds of thousands and tens of thousands.
As good as this sounds however, numerous individuals still have to pay for their own travel and accommodation to different venues.
It has recently been rumoured that "The Man" Becky Lynch has signed a new $1 million deal upon her return to the company. This had us thinking, who earns what in the sports entertainment world?
According to reports 16-time World Champion John Cena tops the list, earning a staggering $8.5 million a year, not bad for a part-timer.
Following him is "The Head of The Table" Roman Reigns. The Universal Champion earns an impressive $5 million annually.
The Women's division looks significantly different to their male counter parts, with the highest earner being Ronda Rousey on $1.5 million
