The Top 9 Wealthiest WWE Superstars In 2022, Complete Report
Since Vince McMahon retired, Stephanie McMahon, the new chairwoman and co-CEO, has surpassed him in terms of wealth. The Billion Dollar Princess has a net worth of $150 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Triple H, Stephanie’s husband, who currently serves as Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and Head of Creative, has a $150 million net worth. The list of the wealthiest wrestlers in the world includes a number of live superstars who are presently competing, despite Stephanie and Triple H no longer being active in-ring competitors. Their wealth ranges from $7 million to $80 million.
After engaging in competition on the European independent circuit for several years, Sheamus formally joined Vince McMahon’s organization in 2007. The Brawling Brute has been a frequent WWE combatant for the past 15 years. During that period, he has garnered a number of victories, including four world championships. The Irish celebrity has recently made appearances in a few films and television programs, such as Assault of Darkness and Royal Pains.
With a $7 million net worth, the current SmackDown star ranks ninth on our list. Drew McIntyre and Sheamus recently faced off on SmackDown for a chance to compete for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at Clash at the Castle. He lost against the Scottish Warrior despite the match being held on the absurd Good Old Fashioned Donnybrook rule.
After being released from the United States Marine Corps, Randy Orton decided to give wrestling a try even though he had no intention of becoming a wrestler in the beginning. Since joining WWE in 2001, he has been a superstar in action. The Viper has appeared in a few films in recent years, including Changeland and 12 Rounds 2: Reloaded. One of the biggest stars on the squad at the moment is the 14-time world champion. With a $7 million net worth, The Viper is also one of the richest superstars on the current squad.
Orton last wrestled in May, when he and his RK-Bro teammate Riddle were defeated by The Usos on SmackDown for the RAW Tag Team championship. Due to a back injury, the 42-year-old is temporarily out of commission. The business reportedly does not anticipate The Viper to make a comeback before the end of 2022.
After competing on the indie wrestling scene for several years, Seth Rollins joined Vince McMahon’s organisation in 2010. Before making his main roster debut in 2012 as a member of The Shield, he spent the next two years in developmental, where he won the first-ever NXT Championship. Rollins has been a top superstar on the current roster for the last ten years.
He has now won the world title four times. The 36-year-old has additionally made several film appearances, notably in Armed Response and Like a Boss. With a $9 million net worth, The Visionary is presently the ninth wealthiest active in-ring wrestler in the WWE. Currently, Rollins is a member of the RAW cast. The former Universal Champion defeated Montez Ford on Monday.
Roman Reigns, The Undisputed WWE Universal Champion
Roman Reigns joined Vince McMahon’s organisation in 2010 and spent two years in development before making his main roster debut in 2012. He previously shared the Shield with Seth Rollins. The company’s spokesperson is now the Tribal Chief. He holds the title of WWE Universal Champion without contest. The 37-year-old just passed 700 days as the Universal Champion after defeating Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam on Saturday in a Last Man Standing match.
Reigns has been in a couple films in addition to being a WWE Superstar, including Fast & Furious Presents Hobbs & Shaw with his cousin Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock). While many fans might believe that Reigns is the richest WWE Superstar right now, that is not the case. Instead, he ranks sixth on this list with a $12 million net worth. The Tribal Chief used to be a full-time superstar, but recently changed to a part-time one. He will, however, defend his title against Drew McIntyre at Clash at the Castle the following month.
The Miz And Maryse
Following his involvement in the 2004 Tough Enough tournament, The Miz joined Vince McMahon’s organisation. In 2006, The Miz hosted the Diva Search competition, in which Maryse took part. The former Divas Champion initially believed The Miz was being cruel to her, but eventually the two grew close and began dating. The pair were married in 2014 and are now parents to two kids. The Miz and Maryse have been in a number of movies made by WWE Studios over the past few years. The reality programme Miz and Mrs. is another one hosted by The It Couple. The former Divas Champion also works as a realtor and is involved in other endeavours outside of wrestling and television. One of the wealthiest superstars on the roster right now is The Miz, along with his wife. Each individual is worth $14 million. Although Maryse is no longer a professional wrestler, she is still under contract with WWE and mostly serves as her husband’s valet. She recently watched him lose to Logan Paul at SummerSlam from the stands.
Edge, A WWE Hall Of Famer
Midway in the 1990s, Edge started working for Vince McMahon. He competed regularly for about 15 years during which time he won several medals, including 11 world championships. The Rated R Superstar, however, had to quit in 2011 due to an injury. The 48-year-old spent his time away from the ring pursuing a career in acting. He has made various film and television appearances, including in Vikings and Haven. Edge comes out of retirement in 2020 and competed in the Royal Rumble Match, marking his eagerly anticipated comeback to ring activity.
The Rated R Superstar is the third wealthiest active in-ring wrestler in the WWE and one of the most seasoned superstars on the current roster. He has a $14 million net worth, according to Celebrity Net Worth. After The Judgment Day, his own organization, kicked him out, Edge briefly vanished from WWE television. He did, however, make a comeback last Saturday at SummerSlam to attack his previous stable, aiding The Mysterios in their victory over Damian Priest and Finn Balor. The Rated R Superstar promised to destroy the group he founded on RAW last Monday.
Brock Lesnar worked in development for two years after signing on with Vince McMahon’s organization in 2000 until making his main roster debut in 2002. Before departing the organisation in 2004 to seek other opportunities, the then-Next Big Thing won the WWE Championship three times. The 45-year-old later competed for several years in the UFC, where he once claimed the Heavyweight title. The Beast Incarnate ultimately made a comeback to WWE in 2012.
He currently works as a part-time in-ring fighter. The second-richest celebrity on this list is the former WWE Champion. He has a $25 million net worth, according to Celebrity Net Worth. At SummerSlam last Saturday, Lesnar and Roman Reigns competed for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. Lesnar was unable to overcome The Tribal Chief, who triumphed thanks to the assistance of his cousins, The Usos, despite having the ring destroyed with a tractor and having F-5s sent to Theory and Paul Heyman.
John Cena committed to a WWE deal in 2001. He routinely participated for the next 15 years and established himself as the company’s spokesperson. The Leader of the Nation even tied Ric Flair’s record by winning 16 world championships. The 45-year-old has changed over the previous five years from a full-time wrestler to a part-time actor as he chose to pursue an acting career.
The former WWE Champion is now a well-known figure in Hollywood. He had important parts in well-known films including F9 and The Suicide Squad. In addition, Cena presently stars in his own television programme, Peacemaker, for which the first season of his pay reportedly totaled $500,000 in total. Additionally, it is said that WWE pays The Leader of the Cenation a salary of $8.5 million. Cena has the highest net worth of any superstar on the roster, at $80 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
On the list of the richest wrestlers in the world, only Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, The Rock, and Vince McMahon are richer than him. These four brands, however, are no longer rivals. Cena lost to Roman Reigns in a Universal Championship match at the high-profile live event SummerSlam in 2021, which was his last match. To commemorate his 20-year main roster debut, he did make a cameo on Monday Night RAW in June.
