The ‘Beast Incarnate’ Brock Lesnar is now amongst the elite group of stars in the WWE when it comes to how much they’re all paid.
He’s a star attraction, and fans pay good money to see him in action – even if it’s only for a short while.
However, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter recently revealed the surprising figure WWE paid Lesnar in 2016.
He’s claiming that The Beast Incarnate received a staggering $11 million from the WWE, and although it’s easy to say that being an elite star in the company means he’s entitled to that amount, it comes as more of a surprise when you consider how much action he was involved in that year.
While that figure tells you just how highly regarded he is in the WWE, Lesnar actually only competed in six televised matches throughout the entire year.
And before you claim he’s paid a lot for his work at house shows as well, he was only featured in five – and we all know how long those last.
So as whole in 2016, Lesnar was featured in 56 minutes and 29 seconds worth of in-ring, televised action.
Let’s see how 2017 goes down for the beast no matter what amount he is got paid its always a pleasure to watch him in the ring.
