No other company in the professional wrestling industry might be even close to earning what WWE earns. WWE is not just a wrestling promotion but they have ventured into several businesses, the most successful of which would be the WWE Studios, which produces enormous amount of content.
The Superstars too earn enormous sums of money, which motivates them to put their bodies on the line to entertain the fans. While no one comes close to the net worth of WWE CEO and Chairman Vince McMahon – $1.6 Billion, there are several WWE Superstars who earn massive sums of money.
