20 WWE Superstars You Had No Idea Were So Rich

The world of professional wrestling is a demanding one that can lead people down a path of wealth and immortality. Over the years, fans have gotten to see what happens when someone comes along with the right amount of talent and charisma, and seeing a fresh ascent to the top of the industry is usually met with thunderous applause from the audience. The men and women that reach the greatest heights in the sport all end up racking up the money, and should they be great enough for a sustained period of time, they will become a legend with a seemingly endless supply of cash coming their way.

But what about the performers that aren’t quite stars yet? They are in the biggest promotion in the world, but they don’t have the same type of mainstream appeal. Well, the 20 people being featured here today have all found a way to have a sizable net worth!

Mojo Rawley may not be one of the top performers in the business just yet, but he has shown a level of athleticism reserved for very few. This is largely thanks to his time in the NFL, which helped him get the type of conditioning needed for the WWE. Despite not being a huge star, he is still worth around $1 million.

19 Cesaro ($1.7 Million)
