In addition to signing contracts with companies, WWE stars make income through several routes. They can add significant amounts of money to their base salaries through ring appearances. Such is the case with WWE star Paul Levesque, who earned just over $1 million from his base salary and just under $2 million from ring performances, notes Forbes. Other top-earning stars in the sport include Brock Lesnar, who earns as much as $5 million annually. Other wrestlers may earn well into the seven figures. In addition to the wrestlers, WWE executives can earn significant amounts of money.
