Becky Lynch Listed Among Forbes Top 10 Highest-Paid WWE Superstars

Forbes has released its annual Top 10 list of the highest paid WWE Superstars. The most noteworthy inclusion on this year’s highest-paid list is Becky Lynch, the first woman to make the list strictly as a wrestler. Stephanie McMahon has made it based on a combination of her pay as both a performer and an executive.

Lynch joins the list at #6, with the salary of $3.1 million, just a little behind Triple H. At #9 is Stephanie McMahon, with the salary of $2 million. The list includes only active members of the WWE roster, which eliminates those on leaves of absence, including John Cena and Ronda Rousey, those who left WWE mid-year, as well as those with one-off appearances, such as Tyson Fury. See the ten highest-paid wrestlers below:

1. Brock Lesnar – $10 million
2. Roman Reigns – $5 million
3. Randy Orton – $4.1 million
4. Seth Rollins – $4 million
5. Triple H – $3.3 million (including executive pay)
6. Becky Lynch$3.1 million
7. Bill Goldberg – $3 million
8. Shane McMahon – $2.1 million
