Wade Barrett: $7 million

Wade Barrett retired from wrestling in 2016 at 35. Before that, he spent a decade with WWE, often in the main event, yet without winning a world title.A genuine tough individual, Barrett was a bare-knuckle boxer in his English upbringing, earning a substantial prize that may have matched his early WWE earnings.

Interestingly, WWE inadvertently nudged Barrett towards a different path. He starred in a WWE Studios movie in 2013, igniting his interest in acting beyond wrestling and boxing. Embracing a new career, he became an actor and TV personality, hosting the UK version of “Ultimate Beastmaster” on Netflix. However, in 2020, Barrett returned to WWE, this time as a color commentator for NXT.
