WWE forks out a considerable amount of money for their Superstars, and some of them area guaranteed to walk away with huge paydays. The base salaries of 2020 indicate exactly how much the top Superstars in the company reportedly walked away with this year.

According to The Mirror, WWE paid out over $12 million to Brock Lesnar in 2020. The top ten list of male and female Superstars also sees a drastic difference in pay. The highest paid female Superstar on the list, Ronda Rousey, made $1,625,862 in comparison.

The lowest mentions on the list also illustrates a huge difference in pay. Dolph Ziggler reportedly cashed in $1.627 million in the #10 spot, but Bayley brought in $203,264.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
