15 Richest WWE Wrestlers in 2024 (+Their Net Worth)

Richest WWE Wrestlers in 2023

The global entertainment, licensing, and media brand known as WWE – or World Wrestling Entertainment, LLC (2023) is a publicly-traded company that was founded in the mid-1950s.

Since its inception as an “entertainment-based performance/art concept,” WWE has created heroes and s-heroes - characters who play scripted roles in storylines/feuds that often endure for several seasons/years – depending on how fans/sponsors react to current storylines.

Many WWE stars (and the WWE villains fans love to hate) are often top-ranked athletes who previously excelled in related (and sometimes unrelated) sports fields. However, as WWE superstars, these athletes have found a large enough stage to highlight their athletic prowess and their star potential. Often, this leads to further success/wealth outside the wrestling entertainment biz- in the form of financially lucrative deals - other acting gigs, product endorsements, and more.

How We Compiled the List?

WWE’s Stamford, CT global headquarters manages its global viewership, which is an estimated one billion – watching in 30 languages through a network of international offices. According to Statista, as a business entity, WWE’s 2022 revenue was an impressive $1.3 billion.

The richest person related to the wrestling industry/business is Vince McMahon – who, after retiring, decided to return to the helm of WWE as the company’s CEO and Chairman. And while McMahon (and other family members) have sporadically made an appearance in the ring, his influence on the sport and the wealth he has amassed is more directly attributed to his presence as –

  • A business executive.
  • A behind-the-scenes promoter.
  • An on-screen WWE authority figure.

Still, with a Forbes net worth of $2.6 billion (2023), he is contributions and remarkable success are worth highlighting.

However, to curate a list of the 15 richest WWE wrestlers, we reviewed current data from both traditional unbiased news sources (AP, Reuters, etc.) as well as wrestling-industry-related magazines and websites that offer insider perspectives, along with in-depth analyses of WWE stars and their fortunes –
