Report Reveals WWE’s Estimated Highest Paid Superstars In 2017

Published

on

There’s a new report out today by Chris Smith of Forbes.com, revealing the top estimated earners among WWE Superstars in 2017. The information is based off of finance reports from WWE themselves and takes into account base salaries, merchandise sales, being in pay-per-view main events and outside sources. This year, John Cena takes the number one spot with an estimated $10 million in earnings, overtaking Brock Lesnar.

According to Forbes, it’s believed that part of this is due to Cena working more than he did in 2016 when he missed chunks of time due to injury, plus another estimated $2 million-plus coming from outside of WWE (movies, television, etc). Additionally, the report does not include front office executives Vince McMahon or Stephanie McMahon, as they did not compete in the ring. Also of note, Shane McMahon did not crack the top ten this year after doing so the year prior, being overtaken by Kevin Owens.

Here’s Forbes’ estimated top ten:

1 – John Cena ($10 Million)
2 – Brock Lesnar ($6.5 Million)
3 – Roman Reigns ($4.3 Million)
4 – AJ Styles ($3.5 Million)
5 – Triple H ($3.2 Million)
6 – Randy Orton ($2.9 Million)
7 – Seth Rollins ($2.7 Million)
8 – The Undertaker ($2.5 Million)
9 – Dean Ambrose ($2.2 Million)
10 – Kevin Owens ($2 Million)

EA’s Take: I think it’s important to remember that this is all estimated, however Forbes is generally a pretty solid source for these kinds of things. The list says a lot to me about why certain guys continue to get pushed, if it were a March Madness bracket, you would be calling it “chalky”. *Cough* Roman Reigns *Cough*. I’ve tried explaining to people numerous times why Reigns is where he is and all you have to do is look at this list to figure it out. Bottom line is, he draws and sells merchandise. WWE is a business. Making money is good.

Impact News: Impact Wrestling YouTube Report (5/24/18)

Published

on

This week’s episode of Impact Wrestling featured a colossal main event in Moose vs. Kongo Kong and the final build for next week’s Under Pressure. Here is this week’s YouTube report:

Allie has Become POSSESSED by a Dark Power: 127K views

oVe vs Drago and Aerostar Plus Sami Snaps: 65K views

Moose vs Kongo Kong: 63K views

Dezmond Xavier vs Petey Williams Winner Faces Brain Cage: 38K views

Matt Sydal vs Fantasma(X-Division Championship): 34K views

The major story coming out of the YouTube numbers this week is Allie putting up the biggest numbers out of everyone. Allie seems to have become possessed by Rosemary, which comes after she was cremated by Su Yung last week. The Allie/Rosemary/Su Yung storyline has been firing on all cylinders lately and the proof is in the numbers, especially this week. Sydal seems to be hovering around the 30K baseline.

Mr. Impact Wrestling himself, Moose, has also been on the rise recently in numbers since losing his World Title Feast or Fired briefcase. After this week, you should put the Knockouts Title storyline and Moose on your radars. I expect their numbers to continue to climb.
