Lesnar, Reigns top WWE guaranteed contracts at more than $5 million


In this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and former champion Brock Lesnar are currently the heads of the company table when it comes to annual contract value.

Meltzer reported that both men make more than $5 million each per year on guaranteed deals while another unnamed talent "is around $4 million," adding "a lot of the top talent is now at $2 million and some at $3 million."

Since returning in August 2020's SummerSlam following a lengthy absence to be with his young family during the height of the pandemic, Reigns, along with The Usos and Paul Heyman, have been the centerpiece of both WWE and SmackDown. He's held the Universal title since August 2020's Payback when he defeated The Fiend and Braun Strowman in a three-way.

The 44-year-old Lesnar returned at this year's SummerSlam after being out of action since 2020's WrestleMania when he dropped the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre. Since returning, he has been as an adversary to Reigns and his former advisor in Heyman.
