Three Highest Paid Male WWE Stars Revealed WWE

The three highest-paid WWE stars have been revealed with two of them being part-time and one having not been on television in a while.

In 2021, it was reported that Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns are both earning over $5 million per year.

In a recent issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (subscription required), Dave Meltzer revealed that Randy Orton is believed to be the third highest-paid male WWE star.

With Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar sitting at the top of the roster money tree, Randy Orton comes in at third place.

Whether this means that Orton is the same unnamed roster member as previously reported who was on a $4m contract or not is not clear from Meltzer’s reporting.

Randy Orton hasn’t been seen in a WWE ring since May 2022, with his father, Cowboy Bob Orton, suggesting that the Viper may have been told to not wrestle anymore.

Bob Orton did note that “Randy will do what Randy is gonna do”, however.

It was previously reported that Roman Reigns had signed a part-time contract with WWE in 2022.

Previous reporting on Brock Lesnar’s contract in August 2021 indicated that it was a “roughly year and a half contract for at least eight matches.”
