Over the last few years the women’s division in WWE has come a long way, and last year the women took a major step forward when Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey main evented WrestleMania 35.
Becky Lynch has been one of WWE’s top stars for some time now, and according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter it’s believed that Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair are the two highest paid women in the company.
The belief is that they each signed a deal with a $1 million guarantee.
It was also noted that there are a number of male wrestlers who earn more, including Brock Lesnar and Goldberg who make more just for the Saudi Arabia shows.
Edge signed a deal believed to be worth $3 million a year for 3 years, and top male stars in the company can earn upwards of $5 million per year.
Becky Lynch recently commented on what she thinks she should be paid during an interview with TV Insider where she said, “I should be making more in that whole company, everybody, Vince McMahon included. I want to change the game. I want to prove that it doesn’t matter your gender, your race, your background, if you are doing the job and keeping people invested, if you are keeping people interested, then you deserve to be paid at a level higher than anybody else. Or as high as anybody else. As high as the best of them. I look around the arenas and the majority of the people are in my shirts. The majority of people hold signs for me, so pay me as such and that will be the way it will be. It’s about what is most interesting. If that’s the case, then let’s put that there.”
