HIGHEST PAID WRESTLERS:

John Cena is the undisputed star in WWE at the moment who can be seen week after week in the ring, but he is not the highest paid wrestler but its the part timer The Rock who makes just a few PPV appearences in the year and makes around $3.5 million a year plus portion of merchandise sales and PPV revenue share.

Some of the below statements (marked in yellow) seem way out of reality. Christian doesn’t wrestle anymore for WWE… Why an unutilized jobber like Zack Ryder would make over half a million dollar a year?.. Ryback making $655K while Cesaro is only making $80K?..
