That’s kind of the point. There are a lot of ways to describe professional wrestlers but one of the most important is right there in the title: professional. The wrestlers that you watch most of the time are doing this for money, with the top stars being able to do this without having to hold down another job. The very elite names make quite a bit of money and now we might know some specifics.

Opinion: There are definitely going to be some names on here who raise some eyebrows, as those are some very high dollar amounts for anyone, let alone some of the bigger names. I can definitely see how some of the stars more than validate their salaries, but at the same time, some of them are more than a little confusing. Still though, it is interesting to get this kind of insight into WWE, as they have quite the collection of talent.
