The Highest-Paid Wrestlers of All Time, Ranked

30. Seth Rollins

30. Seth Rollins

Net Worth: $9 Million

Seth Rollins has been wrestling for the WWE since 2010, and the ensuing years have been very good to him financially. He may not be the highest-paid wrestler of all time, but $9 million for a net worth is nothing to be disappointed in. 

It's no wonder that the WWE is showering him in money--he knows how to bring in the fans, and he's at the top of his game. His multiple championship wins and numerous pay-per-view matches can attest to all that. Despite all his success, it still seems like his fame is just getting started.

29. Kevin von Erich

29. Kevin von Erich

Net Worth: $10 Million

Kevin von Erich no longer wrestles, but he's still a recognizable (and wealthy) figure in the professional wrestling world. Considering his $10 million net worth, it's clear that his time in the ring was worth the effort. 

Von Erich was most famous as a figure in the now-defunct Word Class Wrestling Association, which was in existence in the late '80s and early '90s. Despite the fact that he was in retirement by the time the modern-day professional wrestling craze swept the world, he still managed to do just fine in the finance department.

28. Sable

28. Sable

Net Worth: $10 Million

As a professional wrestler, Sable (real name: Rena Lesnar) is most famous for her time as a part of the WWE. While her skills in the ring may have contributed to her $10 million net worth, a lawsuit against her former employer probably played a role too. 

In 1999, Sable called it quits with the WWE and sued the company for sexual harassment to the tune of $110 million. The two parties later settled out of court for an undisclosed amount. Despite the legal drama, Sable actually returned to the WWE a few years after the lawsuit.

27. Diamond Dallas Page

27. Diamond Dallas Page

Net Worth: $10 Million

Diamond Dallas Page is one of the most iconic professional wrestlers of all time. He may be retired, but people continue to talk about him to this day. From the WCW to the WWF, Page was a member of several major wrestling organizations during his highly profitable career. 

However, wrestling isn't the only source of his $10 million net worth. After his retirement from the ring, Page has worked in a number of other related fields--as a fitness coach, motivational speaker, and even an actor. He even made an appearance as an entrepreneur on Shark Tank

26. Randy Orton

26. Randy Orton

Net Worth: $11 Million

Randy Orton is one of the longest-working and most popular wrestlers of all time. He made his debut with the WWE in the early 2000s and has been raking in the dough ever since. It's no wonder that his net worth has skyrocketed to $11 million. 

We might see Norton as a superstar of the wrestling world, but, for him, he was simply entering the family business. Both his father (Bob Orton Jr.) and his grandfather (Bob Orton) were major figures in the world of professional wrestling as well. We doubt they ever reached the same fame or wealth as this third-generation wrestler, though!

25. Roman Reigns

25. Roman Reigns

Net Worth: $12 Million

Roman Reigns has only been with the WWE since 2012, but he's still managed to become one of the richest wrestlers in his short time in the ring. This championship winning superstar has a net worth of $12 million, and we have a sneaking suspicion that it will be even higher in the future. 

It turns out that wrestling is not the only career that Reigns has used to make his millions. Before the WWE, he was a professional footballer, playing for both the NFL and the Canadian Football League. He's also branched out into acting, with five film credits to his name.

Bella began working for the WWE in 2007 and was a major player during the following decade. While her appearances in the ring are much less frequent these days, she's still an official wrestler on roster with the company. Despite her tough wrestling persona, Bella has also pursued other options, like a lifestyle brand and even her own wine label.

23. Daniel Bryan

Net Worth: $12 Million

Daniel Bryan has left and returned to the WWE so many times that we can't keep count. But despite his revolving door status, he's managed to bring in plenty of money. Since his beginnings in the early 2000s, he's managed to create a net worth of $12 million for himself. 

Besides spending time in the ring, Bryan has pursued several other wrestling-related (and money-making) endeavors. These include a stint as a judge on a wrestling reality show, an autobiography about his time in the ring, and a hilarious WWE/Flintstones crossover film.

22. Eric Bischoff

22. Eric Bischoff

Net Worth: $12.5 Million

When it comes to professional wrestling, Eric Bischoff has done it all. In the ring, behind the scenes--he's had a hand in all aspects of the business. That's probably why he's worth a massive $12.5 million. 

Bischoff began his professional wrestling career all the way back in 1987, and, for several years, did his time in the ring. However, he eventually made the switch to on-air commentary, and by the time everything was said and done, he was the executive producer and senior vice president for the WCW. He would also go on to be the general manager for WWE Raw.

21. Brock Lesnar

21. Brock Lesnar

Net Worth: $12.5 Million

Brock Lesnar made history as the youngest WWE champion when he won the title at the age of 25. His time as a wrestler definitely helped contribute to his $12.5 million net worth, but so did his later athletic pursuits after he left the ring. 

After leaving the WWE in 2004, Lesnar went on to be a defensive tackle for the Minnesota Vikings--although things didn't work out perfectly there. Undeterred, Lesnar began a career in MMA, eventually becoming the UFC's world heavyweight champion. However, he couldn't resist the siren song of wrestling and finally returned to the WWE in 2012.

20. Edge

20. Edge

Net Worth: $14 Million

A mononym might be an indicator that you've arrived, but so is having $14 million in the bank. For legendary professional wrestler Edge, he has both. Since 1992, he's been entertaining fans both in the ring and in other ways. 

Edge was a major player for the WWF and WWE in the 1990s and 2000s, but he eventually had to leave the sport after sustaining some serious neck injuries. However, he had his acting career to fall back on and made appearances on TV shows and in movies like MADtv and Highlander: Endgame

19. Maryse Ouellet

19. Maryse Ouellet

Net Worth: $14 Million

A professional wrestling match is a violent play, and Maryse Ouellet has experience playing any necessary role. While she's done her time in the ring, she's also acted as an on-screen manager for fellow wrestler The Miz. These and other business pursuits have led to a net worth of at least $14 million. 

Ouellet made her WWE debut after participating in Diva Search, a 2002 talent competition where the company searched for new on-screen divas. In addition to her work for the WWE, Ouellet has also released her own clothing and jewelry lines and has even worked as a realtor in Los Angeles.

18. Goldberg

18. Goldberg

Net Worth: $14 Million

You might not see Goldberg in the ring much these days, but during the professional wrestling craze of the late 1990s, he was a wrestler that you couldn't avoid. He managed to turn all that fame into an impressive net worth of $14 million. 

Goldberg began his rise to fame as one of the biggest wrestlers in the now-defunct WCW. After that company folded, he worked for the WWE until 2004. Despite a twelve-year hiatus, Goldberg returned to action in 2016, becoming the WWE Universal Champion. Since then, he's made sporadic appearances but still manages to maintain a massive fan base.

17. The Miz

17. The Miz

Net Worth: $14 Million

The Miz has been in the professional wrestling game since 2004. He may be a beast in the ring, but his net worth of $14 million is probably more due to the fact that he is a top-notch professional at marketing himself as an in-demand media personality. 

Shortly before his career as a professional wrestler, The Miz still managed to get plenty of camera time as a reality show star. He made his debut on The Real World: Back to New York and appeared in several other shows, including The Challenge and Battle of the Network Reality Stars

16. Mick Foley

16. Mick Foley

Net Worth: $15 Million

Mankind, Cactus Jack, Dude Love--they all may have been different professional wrestling characters, but Mick Foley brought them all to life. Foley has been taking on personas and kicking butt in the ring since his debut with the WCW in the early 1990s and has managed to turn that into a hefty sum of $15 million. 

Unlike some of his fellow wrestlers, Foley isn't afraid to embrace the comedic aspects of the sport--although he's also known for being one of the more violent brawlers in professional wrestling history. Unfortunately, there's no information available on the net worth of his sock puppet sidekick, Mr. Socko, but we imagine he's worth millions too.

15. Jeff Jarrett

15. Jeff Jarrett

Net Worth: $15 Million

Jeff Jarrett has been in the wrestling world since he joined his father's association all the way back in 1986. Whether he's in the ring or working backstage, the wrestling business has treated Jarrett well, and he's now worth a jaw-dropping $15 million. 

Jarrett has worked as a wrestler and promoter in numerous professional associations, and he currently works for the WWE as a backstage producer. That may seem pretty mild mannered, but Jarrett was a beast in his day and managed to win a whopping 80 championship titles during his time in the ring.

14. Dave Bautista

14. Dave Bautista

Net Worth: $16 Million

Like many other professional wrestlers, Dave Bautista has dabbled in acting. In fact, at this point, he's probably now more well known for that than his time in the ring. However, both careers have made him handsomely rich, and he's currently got a net worth of $16 million. 

Bautista began his wrestling career in 2000 when he signed to the WWF (now the WWE), and in less than a decade, he had managed to win the championship title six times. Since then, he's branched out into acting and currently portrays Drax the Destroyer in the Marvel Cinematic Universe series of movies.

The Undertaker (real name: Mark Calaway) is one of the few professional wrestlers that had a career spanning three decades. That's a lot of time in the ring! During all those years, he's managed to build up a net worth of $17 million. 

Calaway began his career with World Class Championship Wrestling but really rose to fame when he joined the WWF (now the WWE) in 1990 and adopted the Undertaker persona. He's frequently voted as one of the most popular wrestlers of all time, and he has the bank account to back up all those accolades!

Known as "The Heartbreak Kid", "The Showstopper", and "Mr. WrestleMania", Shawn Michaels had one of the most successful careers in professional wrestling history. As a major player for the WWE's pay-per-view matches, Michaels brought in the big bucks for the company and was handsomely compensated in return. 

Like his nickname implies, Michaels absolutely dominated WrestleMania--the WWE's major annual event. He managed to nab the victory five times during his career. And that doesn't even include his world championship wins! After retiring from the ring, Michaels made several TV and movie appearances and even wrote an autobiography of his life.

He began his career in the 1990s and is still going strong. A net worth of $18 million might be impressive, but he's clearly still got money he wants to make! 

Jericho is most famous for his time in big-name wrestling associations like the WCW, WWF, and WWE. During his time with these groups, he managed to win the world championship six times. These days, he's part of "The Inner Circle" for the newly founded association All Elite Wrestling.

Big Show (a.k.a. Paul Wight) has been a part of the professional wrestling world since 1994. During that time, he's risen to fame...and made a little money in the process! A net worth of $20 million is nothing to be upset about, but that's still not the highest number you'll find on this list! 

Wight adopted the Big Show persona during his WWE years from 1999 until 2021, during which time he won numerous championships and titles. These days, he's part of All Elite Wrestling, where he works both as a wrestler and commentator. He also has a few acting credits to his name, including big-name films like Jingle All the Way and The Waterboy.

Hogan has worked in several wrestling associations throughout his career, including big names like the WCW and WWF. However, even after leaving the ring, Hogan continues to build his brand (and his wealth). These days, he's probably as well known as a reality star as he is a professional wrestler.

Net Worth: $25 Million

Professional wrestling may be fake, but Kurt Angle is a real athlete. He's one of the few wrestlers to also be gold medal-winning Olympian. His sporty career trajectory has led to him having a net worth upwards of $25 million. You could do worse than that!

Shortly before he became a WWE superstar, Angle managed to nab the gold medal in freestyle wrestling at the 1996 Summer Olympics. Since then, he's managed to be named world champion a ridiculous number of times--thirteen, to be exact. In addition to his wrestling work, Angle also has several acting credits for his TV and movie appearances.

Not many professional wrestlers rise to the heights that Triple H has. He may have started out as just another face in the WWE stable, but, these days, he's become a true wheeler and dealer for the company. So, it's no wonder that he's amassed a net worth of $40 million. 

Triple H got his start as a wrestler in the 1990s and quickly became a hot ticket item for the WWE (the WWF at the time). However, these days, he's become a full-blown businessman. He now holds two major positions with the company and acts as both COO and Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy Development.

McMahon is the daughter of wrestling magnate Vince McMahon. However, she's not just rich on daddy's money--she has her own impressive career in the wrestling world. In the early 2000s, she appeared as a wrestler for the WWE in several appearances. However, she's gone behind the scenes these days and works as the Chief Brand Officer for the organization.

The Rock left the WWE in 2004 to pursue his acting career, but he couldn't stay away forever. Despite success in Hollywood, he returned to the ring from 2011 until his official retirement in 2019. Is he gone from the wrestling world for good now? Only time will tell!

No one else even comes close to amassing the riches that wrestling icon Vine McMahon has. This wrestler turned businessman has a staggering net worth of $1.6 billion after building a professional wrestling media empire with the WWE. 

While he did have a career in professional wrestling, McMahon is most famous for turning the WWE into the company that it is today by expanding the marketability and audience for the sport. However, all his business ventures were as successful. In addition to the WWE, McMahon was also part owner in the doomed football league the XFL.
