WWE has produced some of the biggest sporting stars the world has ever seen.

Wrestling fans have been blessed with decades of watching the likes of John Cena, Dwayne Johnson, and Steve Austin to name just a few. 

The women at the company are also starting a revolution — headlining pay-per-views and bringing in millions of views during blockbuster matches.

Women's wrestling has certainly grown massively over recent years, spearheaded by the likes of Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair — who are WWE legends in their own right.

But how do these women's salaries reflect their popularity inside the ring? Here are the 10 highest paid women in WWE and their yearly salaries, according to The SportsGrail.

10. Sasha Banks ($250,000/£183,000)

The Boss is currently one of WWE's most popular women's wrestlers. Sasha Banks made history earlier this year at WrestleMania 37 alongside Bianca Belair, becoming the first Black women to headline the event. 

With six WWE Women's Championship titles plus a Women's Tag Team Championship title, there's no questioning why Banks is one of the highest paid women at the company.

9. Carmella ($260,000/£190,600)

Carmella won the first ever women's Money in the Bank ladder match back in 2017 and subsequently became the first woman to cash in her briefcase, leading to her winning the SmackDown title.

'The Most Beautiful Woman in all of WWE' has also won both the WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal and the WWE 24/7 Championship.

8. Nia Jax ($280,000/£205,000)

Although her appearances have become more irregular in recent months, Nia Jax remains one of the most recognised women's wrestlers.

Despite being cousin to The Rock, she has risen into the spotlight in her own right. Jax was crowned Raw women's champion in 2018 and has won the Women's Tag Team Championship a record-equalling two times alongside Shayna Baszler. 

7. Natalya ($300,000/£219,700)

Natalya is the first ever female third generation wrestler and is the niece of Bret and Owen Hart. She has been on the scene since 2007 and has won both the WWE Divas Championship and the Smackdown Women’s Championship.

She also won the Women's Tag Team Championship with partner Tamina, holding the title for 129 days, the second highest record in history.

6. Bayley ($350,000/£256,000)

Bayley may currently be out of action but she is still one of WWE's most recognised wrestlers. 

The Role Model made history by becoming the first female Triple Crown and Grand Slam winner and currently holds the record for the longest SmackDown Women's Championship title reign. 

Bayley has also won two Women's Tag Team Championships alongside Banks.

5. Asuka ($350,000/£256,000)

Asuka emerged onto the WWE scene after becoming the first Japanese woman to sign with the company for more than 20 years.

She made an immediate impact by winning the NXT Women's Championship, before going on to claim both the Raw and SmackDown titles. 

The Empress of Tomorrow has also won the Triple Crown and Grand Slam tournaments and became the first woman to win the Tag Team Championship with two different partners.

4. Alexa Bliss ($350,000/£256,000)

Alexa Bliss earns the same wage as Bayley and Asuka and it's easy to see why. 

Prior to her announcement that she would be taking a short break from wrestling, she was one of the most popular women on the roster.

Bliss also boasts an impressive CV with two Tag Team Championships, three Raw Championships, and two SmackDown titles, along with the first ever women's Elimination Chamber match win.

3. Charlotte Flair ($1.1 million/£805,700)

Flair is arguably the biggest female wrestler in the world, and that's not just because of her father.

The Queen is unrivalled when it comes to her belt tally, having won a total of 12 WWE Women's Championships over the year — six on Raw and six on SmackDown.

Pro Wrestling Illustrated also honoured her as 2016 Woman of the Year, and she was number one in the PWI Female 50 that same year.

Charlotte Flair

2. Ronda Rousey ($2.1 million/£1.5 million)

Although Rowdy is no longer signed to WWE, she is still one of the most recognised women's wrestlers.

Her combat sports career seemingly knows no limits, having won bronze in judo at the Olympics and become the first and only woman to have won a UFC and WWE title. 

The UFC Hall of Fame inductee was named number one in the PWI Female 100 in 2018 and was ranked fourth in Sports Illustrated's top 10 female wrestlers in the same year.

1. Becky Lynch ($3.1 million/£2.2 million)

The Man doesn't just top this star-studded list of women, but she is also one of WWE's highest paid wrestlers overall.

Becky Lynch is a huge fan favourite and has the titles to back up her hefty salary. Currently on a whopping $3.1 million, she is earning more than the likes of The Miz and Kevin Owens.

Lynch's comeback after taking maternity leave was one of the most anticipated moments in recent WWE history. She is currently the Raw women's champion and has six total WWE titles. 

Big Time Becks was also ranked sixth in Twitter's Top Female Athletes Worldwide list in 2019.
