Legendary WWE wrestler John Cena is currently second with a yearly salary of £6.37m.

Cena also pockets the same wage for main event alongside, The Beast earns about five per cent on his merchandise.

Roman Reigns is on third spot in the top 50 list and smiles to the bank with £3.75m annually despite appearing in the last four WrestleMania's main event.

On the fourth spot, Randy Orton, who earns about £3.37m hold sway and he is closely followed by WWE Champion AJ Styles on fifth position with £2.62m.

In the women's category, Ronda Rousey is the top earner as soon as she made her way into WWE.

Already, she is guaranteed her £1.12m base salary, even if she fails to defend her championship belt against Nia Jax next month.

Charlotte Flair is women's second best with about £412k per year.

Next in the line of top female earners are the pair of Nikki Bella and Alexa Bliss in third spot with £262k.
