Before moving on to the actual list for the top 10 richest WWE Superstars, we should mention that it certainly consists of old-school legends mostly as they are wealthier than the current generation. Of course, the modern-day athletes pull off a huge payday through huge pay-per-view matches let alone from their bound contracts.
The introduction of Saudi Arabia events has been presenting them with more lucrative paydays as these are no less than WrestleMania scale. The coronavirus pandemic has pulled an end to that norm in 2020 but as things are going back to normal, chances are high that Superstars will get more such opportunities to perform in the middle east.

Also, The Rock must be a pinnacle figure as he has equally enjoyed stardom in both professional wrestling and Hollywood.
