Revealed: How Much WWE Stars are Really Paid

Legend Dolph Ziggler returned to the SmackDown Live ring earlier this week for the first time since December, when he gave up his US Championship title.

Now Ziggler, who came out at No.30 in the Royal Rumble last month, has signed on the dotted line for a new two-year deal with the company, amid rumours he was ready to quit.

The two-time World Heavyweight champion was in fact always ready to sign and you can see why as he became the third highest paid fighter in WWE.

According to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated , Ziggler will be remunerated to the tune of $1.5million a year, or just over £1m.

Only icons Brock Lesnar, who takes home $12m after bonuses, and John Cena have a higher base salary than the 37-year-old.

Dolph Ziggler, whose real name is Nicholas Nemeth, has been a member of WWE for 13-years.

Barrasso also confirmed that UFC legend and WWE newcomer Ronda Rousey is working on a superstar mixed tag team match at Wrestlemania in April.
