10 months ago By Sports Desk

WWE has recently increased the salaries of its wrestlers, including both men and women, who work for the organization. The sports industry was hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, leading to salary reductions and pay cuts for many male and female wrestlers. Here, we’ll take a closer look at some of the highest-paid WWE Divas and their contract details, although it’s worth noting that new female wrestlers may later join and earn more than the individuals mentioned here.

#1: Ronda Rousey – Base Salary: $2.5 million

Ronda Rousey is currently the highest-paid WWE Diva. She signed a contract with WWE worth $2.5 million per year. Rousey took a break from wrestling in 2020-21 but returned to action in 2022 and became the SmackDown Women’s Champion. In her previous career in UFC, Rousey earned between $1 million to $3 million per fight. She made $3 million from her fight with Amanda Nunes at UFC 207, and the exact pay-per-view share she received was not disclosed.

#2: Becky Lynch – Base Salary: $1.5 million

Becky Lynch has been active in WWE since 2013, initially working for 2 years in WWE NXT before transitioning to other platforms like SmackDown and Raw. Lynch is currently the highest-paid WWE Diva, holding a contract worth $1.5 million per year.

#3: Charlotte Flair – Base Salary: $1 million

Charlotte Flair became one of the most popular WWE Divas and was the most searched online diva during 2020-21. Flair currently has a contract worth $1 million, but this figure does not include earnings from sponsorships, endorsements, and merchandise sales.

#4: Alexa Bliss – Base Salary: $500,000

Alexa Bliss has been part of the WWE since 2013 and made her debut in NXT. Her current WWE contract is worth $500,000 per year. She is a three-time WWE Raw Women’s Champion and made history in 2018 by winning the main pay-per-view event of Money in the Bank.

#5: Asuka – Base Salary: $500,000

Kanako Urai, a professional women’s wrestler from Japan known as “Asuka,” gained significant fame shortly after joining WWE. According to sources, Asuka is currently earning $500,000 per year with her WWE contract.

Some WWE Divas also receive additional payments from pay-per-view shares, particularly when pay-per-view sales exceed expectations. WWE provides various facilities to its wrestlers, making it an attractive option for women in the industry. These perks include free food, travel, visas, and insurance coverage in case of injuries. Ronda Rousey’s total earnings, including sponsorship, endorsements, and her salary, currently amount to $5.5 million. It’s important to note that the figures provided above represent only the base salaries of these wrestlers under their current contracts.
