Ever Wondered What WWE Superstars Get Paid?

John Cena, wanna help me pay off my student debt?

1. Booker T

Annual salary: $72,520 plus first class travel and accommodation. That’s for one day of work a week, announcing a pre-taped show. Sign me up!

2. Alicia Fox

Annual salary: $72,520. Pretty low salary, it’s starting to make me think that her weekly on-air tantrums are legit.

3. Natalya

Annual salary: $74,410. For the best technical diva on the roster? I think you need to whip out the sharpshooter when you negotiate your next contract Nattie. Oh, and while you’re at it make sure they put Tyson Kidd on TV!

4. Jinder Mahal

Annual salary: $75,000. R.I.P 3MB :(

5. Jack Swagger

Annual salary: $75,000. Remember when this guy was the World Heavyweight Champion?

6. Darren Young

Annual salary: $80,145. Where has this guy been since they split Prime Time Players?

7. Layla

Annual salary: $86,450. All that to dance alongside Fandango a couple of times a week?!

8. Jerry “The King” Lawler

Annual salary: $104,300 plus first class travel and accommodation. Whatever this guy gets, he deserves.

12. Brodus Clay

Annual salary: $170,000. Why did WWE fire him is beyond me. So much potential.

13. Kofi Kingston

Annual salary: $494,500. Includes face paint allowance so he can now be Stardust!

15. Tensai/Sweet T/A-Train/Albert/Prince Albert/Jason Albert
