Top 20 Richest WWE Stars of 2015
11. Ric Flair ($5 million)
A net worth of $5 million somehow doesn’t seem like a lot for someone with the storied career that Flair has had, but it is certainly enough to ride limousines and fly in jets whenever you feel like it. At age 66, Flair is way past his performing days, limited now to occasional RAW and PPV appearances where he usually looks at least slightly inebriated. But the fans still love it when he shows up, and as long as they do he’ll be under contract and making some money.
Amazingly, he just got his first acting role in 2015 — a part in Magic Mike XXL. He’s made a few TV appearances before, though, and he did a voice acting role in the 2013 computer game Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3. His relative lack of wealth for his stature is likely due to a chain of really bad business failures and poor money management.
10. The Undertaker ($16 Million)
For 25 years, this man has made the WWE ring his own yard. Perhaps that’s the reason he makes more money in one match than most of the entire roster does in a full year. The Phenom has earned the luxury of bagging a six figure pay by occupying that special spot in the Wrestlemania card every single year.
We will probably never see anyone garner the amount of respect and popularity that WWE’s resident Deadman has attained over the last couple of decades. He is arguably the most recognizable pro wrestling figure of all time and continues to amaze and entertain fans all around the world ‘til this very day.
The Undertaker has not aged very well and it is pretty clear to all of us that the current run he is in is pretty much his final one. Once his legendary career is over, the Undertaker can rest in peace with $16 million in the bank.
9. Brock Lesnar ($16 Million)
Brock Lesnar is living the pro wrestling dream. The man known as the Beast Incarnate is being compensated with millions of dollars every year for headlining only a handful of major PPVs in addition to walking around like a Gorilla and shrieking like a 12 year old girl. He has renewed his contract earlier this year, which means that the $16 million net worth is only likely to increase in the coming years.
It is a privilege for WWE and its fans to be entertained by the only man in the world to have won the NCAA World Heavyweight Championship, the UFC World Heavyweight Championship and the Undisputed WWE Championship.
The Mayor of Suplex City is a prized fighter and he will not settle for anything less than what he is truly worth.
