Pro-wrestling is without a doubt a business that requires being on the road constantly, which means that most wrestlers have very little time off from their grueling work schedule. With the sheer amount of time that wrestlers travel, and because many wrestlers travel together, over time, certain wrestlers form bonds and friendships because of those countless hours spent together. Wrestlers (especially those who work the grueling WWE schedule) spend very little time at home with their family, so the "boys" and "girls" in the locker room almost become a family because these are the people that they are surrounded by most of the time. As you would expect, many WWE Superstars have formed relationships and even decided to take it one step further by becoming full fledged couples throughout WWE history.
WWE wrestlers are considered to be "Superstars" and as Superstars, they all bring in a fairly substantial amount of money from their line of work each and every year. Although some talents aren't paid that much in comparison to those at the very top of this industry, they all still earn quite a bit more money than the majority of us. As a result, many of these couples formed by working for the WWE are considered to be "power couples", as both partners were, or still are Superstars and brought or still bring in a very substantial amount of revenue.
Today's article divulges the 15 Richest Couples In WWE History and as you would expect, some of these power couples are still bringing in an absolutely staggering amount of cash each year which only adds to their already impressive "net worth". With that said, let's begin our top 15 list.
15 Rusev And Lana
Starting off the list at number 15, is a power couple who are still at the very beginning of their wrestling careers. Both Rusev and Lana have been with the WWE since early 2014 and they have been featured widely on WWE programming ever since (although they have been fairly irrelevant during the past few months or so). With the recent "Superstar shakeup", both Lana and Rusev have been sent to SmackDown, and it serves as a "fresh beginning" for the couple as they've been pretty stale recently. The big question you all want to know is, how rich are Rusev and Lana?
Well, Rusev currently has an estimated net worth of 1 million dollars and Lana's net worth is approximately the same which brings in their total net worth as a couple to the nice sum of 2 million dollars. Currently, Rusev is earning around $725,00 a year which will only continue to add to their already impressive stash. No wonder Rusev and Lana haven't been complaining despite being booked terribly, they're earning some serious cash!
14 Cody And Brandi Rhodes
Cody Rhodes, the son of the legendary Dusty Rhodes (who has been famously known for his "hard times" promo), is definitely far from being in any hard times situation. Cody Rhodes has worked for the WWE extensively between the years of 2007 and 2016 and now works the Indies as well as for TNA Impact Wrestling and NJPW. Cody's wife Brandi Rhodes worked for the WWE between the years 2013 and 2016 as a ring announcer for both NXT as well as later on both SmackDown and RAW. At this time, it is unknown to the public as to how much money Brandi has made during her career thus far.
If I had to guess, I would say Brandi Rhodes has a net worth of around $350,00. For Cody however, his net worth is very much available to the public, and it comes in at around 2.5 million dollars which brings in their combined net worth as a couple to approximately just under 3 million dollars which is very impressive. Both Cody and Brandi are still young, so you can expect these two to amass a much larger net worth by the time their careers in the squared circle eventually come to an end.
13 Daniel Bryan And Brie Bella
Daniel Bryan, the retired wrestler known for his extraordinarily popular "yes movement" as well as Brie Bella, one half of the Bella twins who stars on Total Divas and Total Bellas, are definitely a WWE power couple. Both have had great WWE careers and although their in ring careers are over, both Daniel and Brie certainly made quite enough dough to last them the rest of their lives worry-free. Daniel Bryan is also currently acting as the on-screen general manager of SmackDown so he is still earning some money.
Currently, Daniel Bryan has an estimated net worth of 2 million dollars. Brie on the other hand, has a slightly smaller net worth which comes in at around 1.7 million dollars. Combined, the power couples net worth comes in at approximately 3.7 million dollars, a fairly hefty sum! They both can rest easy now knowing that they can retire at any point.
12 12. Booker T And Sharmell
WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T and his wife Sharmell have all it takes to be considered a WWE power couple. Although both are retired from the in-ring scene, Booker T still works for the company as a pre-PPV show and Raw Talk broadcast team analyst. It was just announced that Booker T will be filling in as Raw's new commentator in replace of David Otunga until May.
The big question here is how rich are Booker and Sharmell? Well, although Sharmell's current net worth is unknown to the public at this time, Booker T's net worth is available, and even if Sharmell has no money (which she does), Booker T's net worth comes in at around 5 million dollars, which is plenty enough for the both of them. If I had to guess, I would say Sharmell's net worth is probably around the $500,00 mark, so that would leave their net worth as a couple to be around 5.5 million dollars. Now can you dig that, sucka?
11 The Miz And Maryse
The Miz and Maryse are one of the WWE's current power couples that everybody loves to hate (actually many love them now). Anyways, the two portray self-conceited characters with The Miz at one point taking "The Hollywood A-Lister" persona and although he may not be a "Hollywood A-Lister" at this point, both Miz and Maryse have lots to brag about. The Miz has been working the grueling WWE schedule for over a decade now and as a result, he has earned a fairly hefty sum of money throughout the years.
So how rich really are The Miz and Maryse? Well, Maryse has an estimated net worth currently of 1.5 million dollars and her flashy ego-maniac husband The Miz, has a net worth of approximately 5 million dollars which is very impressive indeed. As a couple, their combined net worth comes in at around 6.5 million dollars! I should also note that currently, The Miz is bringing in around $712,000 a year which will continue to increase their already impressive stash.
10 Dean Ambrose And Renee Young
Both "The Lunatic Fringe" Dean Ambrose and Renee Young are very popular WWE figures and as a couple, they are without a doubt, a power couple. Dean Ambrose, a former member of The Shield as well as a former WWE World Champion has been working the WWE schedule full-time since 2012. Renee Young has also been working extensively for the WWE in all sorts of roles since 2012 and she is also now a cast member on WWE's show Total Divas. As you would expect, both Dean and Renee have earned some serious cash.
As far as how rich the couple are, Rene Young currently has a net worth of around 1 million dollars and her now husband Dean Ambrose, has a net worth of 6 million dollars, which brings their total net worth as a couple to an impressive 7 million dollars. Again, both Dean and Renee are still young and they will be featured in prominent WWE roles for years to come, so you can expect this WWE power couple to be much wealthier by the time they're both retired.
9 CM Punk And AJ Lee
"The Best In The World" CM Punk and the wildly popular AJ Lee are definitely one of the WWE's most popular power couples. Although both have since parted ways from the WWE in 2014, during their stints in the company, especially for CM Punk, they made enough money to last them for the rest of their lives. Also since leaving the WWE, CM Punk has performed for the UFC, and although he was embarrassingly defeated, Punk made a hefty $500,000 from that one fight with Mickey Gall alone.
Currently, AJ Lee only has an approximate net worth of $155,000 surprisingly, but while she may not be "raking" in the dough at this moment, CM Punk has enough dinero for the both of them as Punk's current net worth tallies in at an impressive 7.5 million dollars. This leaves their combined net worth as a couple right now at just under 7.7 million dollars. CM Punk has said on may occasions that he (nor AJ) have any desire to ever go back to the WWE and with how rich this power couple is, they have absolutely no reason to.
8 Alberto Del Rio And Paige
Alberto Del Rio and Paige are without a doubt, the most talked about WWE power couple out there. With Paige's recent scandal as well as Del Rio always getting into fights, they're always in the media in some capacity it seems. Despite some fans thinking that this couple is a mess now, that still doesn't take away from the fact that both Del Rio and Paige made a ton of money when they worked for the WWE. Alberto worked for the WWE between 2010-2016 as one of the WWE's key players, and Paige worked for the company between the years 2011-2016 as one of the WWE's top Women's division wrestlers.
Currently, Paige's net worth is estimated to be right around the sum of 3 million dollars and her "bad boy" boyfriend Alberto Del Rio's net worth is estimated to be 6 million dollars. As a couple, their combined net worth is approximately 9 million dollars. At this point, it doesn't look like either Alberto nor Paige will ever return to the WWE, because of Paige's recent scandal as well as Alberto Del Rio just being someone that the WWE cannot trust. But fortunately for this power couple, they have earned enough money to last for the rest of their life's.
7 Macho Man Randy Savage And Miss Elizabeth
Although the legendary Hall Of Famer Macho Man Randy Savage and his longtime lover Miss Elizabeth (Elizabeth Hulette) have long since passed on (god bless their souls), when they were a couple back in the day, they were definitely considered to be one of the WWE's top power couples. During Macho Man's peak in professional wrestling, Miss Elizabeth was right by his side, and the two were one of, if not, the most beloved WWE couple at the time. The Macho Man was a bonafide main event Superstar when Elizabeth and Randy were together and they both earned a hefty sum.
Although it's unknown to the public as to Miss Elizabeth's net worth, Macho Man's net worth was estimated to be approximately 28 million dollars before he passed away in 2011. Since the two were a couple between the years 1984-1992, his net worth was not quite that high, as Savage hadn't yet made all that money from his WCW days in the 90's when they were separated. However, during their time as one of the WWE's most beloved couples, I would estimate that their combined net worth would have been approximately 15 million dollars which is still very impressive. Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth will go down in history as one the WWE's most popular power couples of all time, no doubt.
6 Edge And Beth Phoenix
"The Rated R Superstar" and WWE Hall Of Famer Edge and his wife, the 2017 Hall Of Famer Beth Phoenix have all the requirements to be considered one of the WWE's power couples. Both Edge and Beth have had highly successful careers on their own, as Edge is a former 11-time WWE World Champion and Beth Phoenix is a former 3-time WWE Women's Champion and a 1-time WWE Divas Champion. As you would expect, both Beth and Edge have acquired quite the financial assets over their careers.
As of 2017, Beth Phoenix's net worth is estimated to be 3 million dollars and her husband Edge's net worth is an incredibly impressive 14 million dollars. As a couple, their combined riches total to about 17 million dollars. Both Edge and Beth Phoenix can now rest easy at night, and happily live the retirement life (at a very young age) knowing that they have more than enough money to last over two lifetimes. They have definitely done good for themselves and I'm happy for the both of them.
5 The Undertaker And Michelle McCool
The Undertaker and Michelle McCool are among the WWE's top power couples. Both Michelle McCool and The Undertaker have had great careers but if we're going to be honest here, The Undertaker is the star in this power couple. The Undertaker has been the WWE's top cornerstone for over two decades, and he has main evented countless Pay-Per-Views and has been the shining star and main attraction of the WWE's annual spectacle, WrestleMania. However, all good things do indeed come to an end and this year, The Undertaker retired to the dismay of the WWE Universe. However, for Michelle and The Undertaker, they have absolutely no worries.
Michelle McCool, a former 2-time WWE Women's and Divas Champion, has an approximate net worth of 3 million dollars which is impressive in its own right. However even more impressive, The Undertaker has a net worth of 17 million dollars as of 2017. Together, as one of the WWE's richest couples, they have a combined net worth of 20 million dollars! Although many fans will feel sad for a long time following The Deadman's retirement, The Undertaker and Michelle McCool can now enjoy the retirement life in lavish style. If anyone deserves to retire, it's the Undertaker. I'm very happy that The Undertaker's financially set for life, as he can now enjoy his retirement with someone he loves.
4 Brock Lesnar And Sable
"The Beast" Brock Lesnar and former WWE Women's Champion Sable are the fourth richest WWE couple of all time. Sable's WWE career spans between the years 1996 and 2004 as one of the top Women's division wrestlers. However, Sable has been out of the spotlight following her departure from WWE in 2004. Brock Lesnar on the other hand, is one of, if not, the top draw of the WWE today. Brock Lesnar has been successful wherever he's went (WWE, UFC) and as a result, he's raked in an absolute ton of money as both the WWE's and at the time, UFC's top drawing star.
As of 2017, Sable's net worth is estimated to be about 1.5 million dollars, and her husband Brock Lesnar's net worth is approximately 22 million dollars. Combined as a couple, their total net worth is about 23.5 million dollars which translates to some serious financial assets! I should also note that Brock Lesnar is currently one of the WWE's top earning Superstars, as Lesnar is raking in over 5 million dollars a year on his current WWE contract which is incredible. When Brock Lesnar decides to retire from wrestling (in the next couple of years), he and Sable can live worry-free in the small Canadian town of Maryfield, Saskatchewan which is where they reside.
3 John Cena And Nikki Bella
John Cena is undoubtedly the biggest star in the WWE today. He has main evented countless Pay-Per-Views including WrestleMania on multiple occasions, and he is a 16-time WWE World Champion. Cena's been in movies, T.V shows and just about anything else related to the media. His partner (soon to be wife as they are engaged), Nikki Bella is also a highly successful WWE Superstar. Nikki Bella has been one of the top Women's division wrestlers for quite some time now, and she has an absolutely massive following on all her social media platforms. As a result, Nikki Bella and John Cena are one of the WWE's top power couples.
Nikki Bella's net worth is estimated to be around 1.5 million dollars. However, the real "money maker" in this relationship is without a doubt, John Cena. Cena's net worth is reportedly 35 million dollars as of 2017, which brings in their combined net worth as a couple to the staggering sum of 36.5 million dollars. I should also note that John Cena is currently the WWE's highest earning Superstar, with an annual salary of around 10 million dollars. John Cena and Nikki Bella are by far one of the WWE's richest couples around, and they can definitely be considered a "power couple" in the truest sense of the word.
2 2. Triple H And Stephanie McMahon
"The Game" Triple H and the bosses daughter Stephanie McMahon, are the 2nd richest WWE power couple of all time. Both Triple H and Stephanie McMahon have worked hard (although Triple H has worked quite a bit harder to get where he is) and as a result, they have amassed an incredible net worth. I would easily say that Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are the WWE's most polarizing and most recognizable power couple around as they have been the "authority" figures for years now and as a result, they have been involved in so many story-lines.
Whether working behind the scenes or on screen as villains, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are working hard and making the green to show for their efforts. As of 2017, ironically, both Triple H and Stephanie McMahon have net worths of 25 million dollars each, which tallies up their combined riches to an impressive total of 50 million dollars. For a bit more information, Triple H is reportedly earning 2.8 million dollars a year, and Stephanie McMahon is currently earning approximately 1.7 million dollars a year. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are definitely not just an on-screen power couple, as they have the dough to back up that status!
1 Vince McMahon And Linda McMahon
The richest power couple in WWE's history is without a doubt, Vince McMahon and his wife Linda McMahon. For the longest time, Vince McMahon has acted as the WWE's Majority Owner and CEO, as well as the on-screen villainous WWE T.V. Chairman who everybody loves to hate, but still loves nonetheless. On the other hand, Linda McMahon has mainly worked behind the scenes, and she has acted as the Co-Chief Executive between the years 1993-1997, as well as the CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment since 1997. Linda McMahon is now the 25th Administrator of the Small Business Administration under the Trump Administration.
As of 2017, Linda McMahon's net worth is estimated to be right around the incredible 500 million dollar mark. Even more insane, her husband Vince McMahon's net worth is approximately 1.2 billion dollars as of this year. Just some absolutely staggering numbers, and far, far greater than anyone else included on this list. As a couple, their combined riches total around 1.7 billion dollars! As you can see, Vince McMahon and Linda McMahon are by far the richest WWE power couple of all time. If there's a couple on this list that has the right to be called a "power couple", it is without a doubt the McMahon's. They're rich beyond comprehension, and they have enough money to supply the McMahon family for generations to come.
