WWE Pay: How Much Will the Stars of Elimination Chamber Make This Weekend?

This weekend we will see one of WWE's most iconic events take place. The first time the event happened was back in 2010, but the idea of the elimination chamber match was used as far back as 2002. We have all wondered what these superstars receive as payment, and although we don't have concrete data from the 2024 event, we can estimate a guess based on rumors and news that circulated over the years. Triple H has all the answers, but the salaries of the superstars aren't the media's top questions when he is interviewed.

There are also going to be two title matches for the WWE Women's Championship and the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship titles.

How much money does the average superstar receive per year?

We have confirmed information from Triple H himself when he told “The Athletic” that WWE superstars on the main roster (RAW & SmackDown) make at least $250,000 per year in salary. NXT contracts can range from $50,000 to $200,000 per year, but top talents get at least $100,000 annually.

We have reported figures from several sources about several superstars’ salaries:

  • Roman Reigns – $5 million + plus merchandise sales share
  • Logan Paul – $5 million – as per his new contract in 2023
  • John Cena – $8.5 million – reported salary from Forbes in 2018
  • Kevin Owens – $2 million – as of 2021 when he signed a new contract
  • The Undertaker – $2.5 million – as per the Legends deal, he signed in 2019 for 15 years that prevents him from participating in any other promotion

*Note that these salaries or contracts may have changed since the time they were reported, so this information isn't 100% accurate

  • Cody Rhodes – $3 million
  • Seth Rollins – $3 million
  • Becky Lynch – $2 million

  • Bianca Belair – $500,000
  • Damian Priest – $500,000
  • LA Knight – $350,000
  • Liv Morgan – $250,000

Overall, do you think that this kind of salary is enough to go through the routine of superstars and the dangers of wrestling? Some names who are current right now, like Seth Rollins, are injured and we see that each day these athletes are at risk of receiving a greater injury, as is in any sport. They still do it though because they love their jobs and are dedicated to their fans around the world.
