The Net Worths Of The Richest WWE Divas Revealed
The term ‘Divas’ first appeared in the ’90s, back when the WWE was still known as the WWF. All females in the industry, whether they were fighters, ring announcers, or managers, are considered Divas and Superstars. Today, the list of WWE Divas is looking strong as ever — with legends like Wendi Richter and Torrie Wilson, and the current class of Divas, including the Bella Twins and Eva Marie. These talented women do some serious damage in the ring and take home a pretty paycheck for doing it. Are you curious of the net worth of these WWE Divas? We’ll reveal them here.
Eva Marie: $2.5 Million
Eva Marie is a multi-talented woman. After getting her Bachelor of Arts in business management, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue modeling and acting. With an athletic background (she wanted to play soccer professionally) she decided to give wrestling a shot and auditioned for the WWE.
In 2013 she signed a contract with the WWE for $200,000 a year and became a member of the cast of Total Divas. Known for her ever-changing hair color, Eva Marie is a firey Mexican-Italian wrestler with an impressive resume, appearing as a regular on the main roster. Her net worth is estimated to be $2.5 million.
Trish Stratus: $3 Million
Trish Stratus is one of the WWE Divas who has a lot of claim. During her wrestling career, Stratus set the record for most WWE Women’s Championship titles (seven) and was a trainer for WWE Tough Enough in 2011. When she announced her retirement, she was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, the youngest to be given the honor.
Many top female wrestlers have named Stratus as their inspiration and role model, and although she’s made history, she’s surprisingly on the lower end of this net worth list, at $3 million.
Rosa Mendes: $3 Million
Canadian wrestler Rosa Mendes was a model before she started her career with the WWE in 2006. Mendes has also trained in kickboxing, Muay Thai, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. She signed a contract for $220,000 a year, making the top eight in the WWE Diva Search. Mendes also managed tag team champions Primo & Epico and appeared as a regular cast member on Total Divas.
In 2015, Mendes became pregnant and made the transition from wrestler to WWE correspondent. In 2018 she announced her return and is now fighting on the independent circuit.
Paige: $3.5 Million
Hailing from England, Paige has two WWE Diva Championship titles and an annual contract of $250,000. One of the most popular Divas of the WWE, Paige has been named “most beautiful” and started her wrestling career when she was only 13 years old!
She got into the game early, as both of her parents were professional wrestlers, too. At 21 years old, Paige became the youngest WWE wrestler to win. She isn’t slowing down either. A film based on Paige and her family’s life is in the works.
Mickie James: $4 Million
WWE Diva Mickie James had a successful wrestling career that perhaps could have gone even further. James joined the WWE in 2005 and won five WWE Women’s Championship titles in five years. She was also named the PWI Woman of the Year twice. Her storyline focused on an obsession she had for Trish Stratus, as well as her rivalry with Melina.
She left the WWE in 2010 when they decided to “move in a new direction with their women’s division” and so James signed a contract with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling. Her net worth is estimated to be $4 million.
Brie Bella: $4 Million
Brie Bella became famous with her twin sister Nikki, wrestling together in the ring since 2007. The Bella Twins have amassed a huge following, even starring in their own reality TV series, Total Bellas as well as maintaining a large fan base on their YouTube channel, The Bella Twins.
Brie has also branched out into the fashion world, with her sister as her business partner. Their brand Birdiebee includes active wear and lounge wear. Brie is married to professional wrestler Daniel Bryan and is a mother to a little girl named Birdie, born in May 2017.
Stacy Keibler: $4.5 Million
WWE Diva Stacy Keibler scored more attention for her long legs than she did for her wins, but that’s okay. She started her wrestling career in 1999 as a member of the Nitro Girls, and has been nicknamed “The Legs of WWE.”
While her wrestling career wasn’t legendary, Keibler made a name for herself and used her legs to walk into the modeling and fitness industry afterward. Keibler has also appeared on Dancing with the Stars and has worked as a TV host.
Kelly Kelly: $4.5 Million
It may surprise you that “Kelly Kelly” doesn’t actually have “Kelly” in her first name or her last. Born Barbara Jean Blank, this WWE Diva signed her first professional wrestling contract in 2006. She’s split her time between wrestling and modeling and has made appearances on several TV shows.
She has one WWE Divas Championship title to her name, as well as a Slammy Award for Divalicious Moment of the Year, in 2011. Ranked one of the top 50 female singles wrestlers, Kelly Kelly’s net worth is estimated to be $4.5 million.
Natalya: $5 Million
Natalya is another WWE Diva who was born into a family of wrestlers. The Hart family began its dynasty with Natalya’s grandfather Stu Hart, who wrestled from 1915 to 2003. She was the first female in her family to wrestle and started her career with the WWE in 2007.
Her annual WWE income is estimated to be $300,000, putting her net worth around $5 million, which includes her endorsements. She’s also appeared on Total Divas, WWE Breaking Ground, WWE Tough Enough, and Total Bellas.
Nikki Bella: $5.5 Million
Nikki Bella needs no introduction. The other half of The Bella Twins, Nikki is also engaged to John Cena. She’s won numerous awards and titles including being ranked number-one female pro wrestler by Pro Wrestling Illustrated in 2015, and Diva of the Year by Rolling Stone.
She’s become a household name with all of her success and it’s no surprise that she made the list of richest WWE Divas. Nikki’s net worth is estimated to be around $5.5 million.
AJ Lee: $6 Million
WWE wrestler AJ Lee has quite the resume! The Diva from New Jersey fell in love with wrestling when she was young. She had a tough upbringing, which even led her to drop out of college. Maybe it was all meant to be because once she joined the WWE she immediately proved to be a great talent.
Pro Wrestling Illustrated named Lee Woman of the Year from 2012 to 2014, and also ranked her No. 2 for top female wrestlers. She has three WWE Divas Championship titles and three Slammy Awards. She’s also claimed Diva of the Year (twice) and Kiss of the Year in 2012.
Lillian Garcia: $6 Million
WWE Diva Lillian Garcia has a unique background. Born in Spain, Garcia participated in beauty pageants and sang before starting her WWE career as a ring announcer. She sings the national anthem before Monday Night Raw and has performed with some of the best artists in the world including Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, Reba McEntire, and Willie Nelson.
Her single “Shout” even made the Billboard Hot 100 list in 2002. Garcia has made a name for herself in the WWE and is sitting pretty with a net worth of $6 million.
Terri Runnels: $6.67 Million
WWE veteran Terri Runnels has a net worth that’s higher than a lot of the other Divas on this list. She appeared on the scene in 1996 when she signed her first contract with WWE. She’s worn multiple hats, first introduced as a wrestler named Marlena. She then became a manager to Meta, Saturn, Raven, and the Hardy Boyz.
Standing at just 5’0″, the latter part of Runnels’ career with the WWE took her backstage, interviewing the wrestlers. She still has a huge fan following, which has bumped her estimated net worth to $6.67 million.
Vicki Guerrero: $8 Million
Vicki Guerrero is a legend among the WWE Divas. Married to professional wrestler Eddie Guerrero, she made her first WWE appearance alongside her husband in 2005. He was well-established in the wrestling world at the time of his death later that year, at 38 years old.
Although she was now a widow, Vicki wasn’t ready to leave wrestling. In fact, she needed it more than ever. The WWE family took care of her and she pushed on, becoming one of the fan favorites. Vicki is still an active WWE Diva today and has an estimated net worth of $8 million.
Tammy Lynn “Sunny” Sytch: $11 Million
Tammy Lynn Sytch, better known as her nickname, “Sunny” is revered as “the first Diva.” In 1995, Sunny first appeared on WWE (then WWF) as a manager for The Bodydonnas. Her popularity quickly grew and fans wanted to see more of the bodacious blonde.
Her feisty personality made Sunny fun to watch and although she was caught up in a painkiller problem for a portion of her wrestling career, she was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2011.
Bull Nakano: $12 Million
No one is quite like Bull Nakano. Hailing from Japan, this WWE Diva has made millions in her wrestling career, competing around the world and making a good living in Mexico, North Korea, Japan, and the U.S.
Her career in the U.S. was cut short when she was found in possession of a controlled substance, but her fans never forgot Nakano. She still makes appearances today and works in promotion for wrestling. She’s taken up residence in Florida and is worth a reported $12 million.
Torrie Wilson: $18 Million
Torrie Wilson is one of the richest WWE Divas of all time. Not only is she well-known in the wrestling world, but Wilson is also a fitness competitor and a model. She won the Miss Galaxy competition in 1999 before signing with the WWE.
The leggy blonde was often inserted into storylines as the girl who would be stolen from one wrestler by another. Posing for the cover of Playboy and other magazines, it’s no surprise that Wilson has amassed a comfortable net worth of $18 million. And she’s still drop-dead gorgeous.
Stephanie McMahon: $25 Million
Did you think we left out Stephanie McMahon?! Of course not. Hailing from the legendary McMahon clan, Stephanie was born into the wrestling world as a fourth-generation wrestling promoter. She began working in the family business as a merchandise girl and proved her keep, working up to Chief Brand Officer of WWE.
She’s built an empire in her own right now worth $25 million. The daughter of Vince and Linda McMahon, Stephanie is famously married to wrestler Triple H, who also has an estimated net worth of $25 million.
Wendi Richter: $39 Million
According to MoneyInc, WWE Diva Wendi Richter is worth a whopping $39 million. She first wrestled with the WWF in 1983. Her wrestling career spanned three decades during which the Texas native won the WWF Women’s Championship twice.
Richter is still upset over how her career with the WWE ended, however. She refused to wrestle for the WWE ever again after Vince McMahon discarded the original plan for a match at Madison Square Garden and had Moolah take the belt away from her instead. That was in 1985 and Richter is still sour about it. At least she has her millions.
Debra McMichael: $45.4 Million
Behold, the WWE Diva with the highest net worth! Queen Debra McMichael began her WWF career alongside her husband, Steve “Mongo” McMichael in 1998. She won the WWF Women’s Championship in 1999, defeating Sable in an Evening Gown Match in a controversial decision. She’s also played manager to top wrestlers including The Rock.
She later remarried to another wrestler, Stone Cold Steve Austin in 2000 and they both left when the company changed to the WWE in 2002. They divorced the same year, after Austin pleaded guilty for misdemeanor assault after Debra was found with a bloody nose and bruises. Although she didn’t have the smoothest life, Debra is raking in the dough!
Sable: $1.5 Million
Sable, who is currently married to WWE superstar Brock Lesnar is not slouch of her own when it comes to lifetime winnings. Making a name for herself during the WWE’s “Attitude Era,” Sable was always willing to push the boundaries of good taste to get attention.
When she had a microphone in her hand she’d say, “This is for all the women who want to be me, and for the men who come to see me.” Then she’d put on a heartstopper of a show. Whether she won or lost, you never left disappointed.
Lita: $2.5 Million
Lita is a four time WWE Women’s Champion and has earned every penny of he $2.5 million net worth. Throughout her storied career she famously feuded with Trish Stratus and created a higher standard and work ethic for other divas to live by.
From her humble beginnings as the manager of the Hardy Boyz to putting the spotlight on herself, Lita was never scared to be in charge. In 2006, she stepped out of the ring and formed the successful band Luchageros.
Sasha Banks: $3 Million
Born in 1992, Sasha Banks wasn’t even out of her 20s when she made her wrestling debut. Today, she’s worth a cool $3 million. She won her first title in 2015 and was ranked as one of the most popular female wrestlers one year later.
To get to where she is, Banks may have had some help along the way. Did you know she has a few famous cousins? One of those cousins in Snoop Dog. Another is Brandy!
Charlotte Flair: 1.5 Million
If the last name Flair sounds familiar it should. Charlotte Flair is the daughter of legendary wrestler Ric Flair. Her name may have given her a hand in the industry, but her skill in the ring has earned her the respect of her peers.
In 2018, Flair was listed as one of the WWE’s highest paid divas, earning a reported $230,000 for the year. We can only imagine how proud her father is of her. Greatness truly runs in the Flair family.
Alicia Fox: $2 Million
Including her WWE salary and endorsement deals, Alicia Fox is worth just around $2 million. She made her wrestling debut in an independent league in Ohio in 2006. Since then she has risen through the ranks and found her way into the hearts of WWE fans everywhere.
In 2016, Fox was the highest earning diva, cashing in $350,000 yearly! For four years starting in 2013, she made appearances on Total Divas working alongside other famous divas.
Summer Rae: 3 Million
Summer Rae does a little bit of everything. Not only is she a WWE Diva, she’s also a model, valet, and actress. Rae grew up York and got her start in professional athletics playing for the Chicago Bill of the Legends Football League.
In 2011, the football star signed her first contract with WWE. Her in ring debut came two years later and her acting debut came four years later. The film The Marine 4: Moving Target came out in 2015.
Ronda Rousey: $12 Million
A relatively new diva to the WWE world, Ronda Rousey earned her stars in UFC. For years she was the best female fighter in the world. Her work with UFC led to movie roles, and eventually earned her a contract with WWE.
Considered overrated when she made her first appearance, people quickly changed their tune when she showed how serious her moves were. Carrying the legendary “Rowdy” moniker, Ronda Rousey has become must see television any time she makes an appearance.
Layla El: $500,000
At her peak with the WWE, Layla El was earning $220,000 a year. Her biggest claim to fame within the organization is that she was the last WWE Women’s Champion in 2010 (the title was retired). She might not wrestle anymore, but she keeps busy as a model and dancer.
The WWE Women’s Champion title has since returned to the league, but Layla El can always say she was last of the original title holders. She might not be the highest earner on the list, but she’s still pretty impressive!
Tamina Snuka: $900,000
Tamina Snuka is a somaon diva born in 1978. She currently works for WWE on Raw. Like Charlotte Flair, she has deep familial ties in the league and is the daughter of Jimmy Snuka. Jimmy is one of the most beloved WWE superstars of all-time.
Tamina made her WWE debut in 2009, following in the big footsteps left by her father. Originally a heel (villain), Snuka has joined several evil tag teams over the years and is always getting into trouble at Wrestlemania.
Alexa Bliss: 2.3 Million
Still under 30-years-old, Alexa Bliss is one of the brightest, youngest, and richest divas in the WWE. Born in Ohio, Bliss signed her WWE contract in 2013 and currently rakes in around $350,000 a year. Including endorsements and other ventures, Bliss is worth $2.3 million.
Bliss burst onto the WWE scene, making her first appearance at Wrestlemania XXX. She often makes her appearance these days with Nikki Bella. In 2018, Bliss won the RAW Women’s Championship for the third time, although a few months later she was defeated by Ronda Rousey.
Becky Lynch: $650,000
Born Rebacca Quin, Becky Lynch has wrestled under a few different names. When she made her independent league debut, she went by Rebecca Knox. In WWE, however, she is known as Becky Lynch, and when she’s coming at you, you should probably get out of her way.
It took Knox ten years to break into the WWE. Starting in 2002, she worked in other companies across Europe. Finally, in 2013 she was given her big break, as well as a name change.
Carmella: $43 Million
One of the most successful WWE Dovas of all-time, Carmella is worth an astounding $43 million. Known as the Princess of Staten Island, Carmella signed her first contract with WWE in 2013 and debuted one year late in 2014.
One of Carmella’s biggest accomplishments was winning the Money in the Bank title. With nothing left to prove in the world of professional wrestling, Carmella isn’t planning to stop any time soon. We just have to ask; what comes next for this icon of the WWE?
Dana Brooke: $1 Million
Before becoming a WWE Diva, Dana Brooke was a gymnast. She practiced gymnastics for 18 years before beginning a new passion; body building. She won several body building competitions and caught the attention of WWE talent scouts, who signed her to a contract in 2013.
Brooke main roster debut came in 2016 and she has been a staple ever since. At 5’3″ she might not be the tallest diva, but she easily one of the fiercest and formidable.
Lana began her WWE career in 2013 as Rusev’s manager. For four years she held the title. In 2016, while still managing Rusev, she became an in-ring competitor. Since getting her taste of a real fight, she’s never let the company take her out of it.
Before joining WWE, Lana was a member of the girl group No Means Yes. The group was signed to a record deal and even released one single, “Would You Like That.”
Naomi is more than just a WWE Diva. Born Trinity Fatu, she is also a model, actress, singer, and dancer. She signed with WWE in 2009 and was assigned to the company’s developmental Florida league initially.
Her main roster debut came in 2012 alongside Cameron. The pair formed The Funkadactyls. Since 2013, Naomi has also made regular appearances on Total Diva. In 2017, she became the first African-American woman to capture a WWE Women’s title.
Aksana: $1.5 Million
Born in Lithuania in 1982, Aksana currently earns $190,000 yearly from WWE and is worth an estimated $1.5 million overall. At 17-years-old she was the youngest IFBB Arnold Classic Contest champion and signed with WWE in 2009.
Over the course of her career, Akasana has gone by many nicknames. Do you remember when she was called The Billion Dollar Baby? How about The Leather-clad Lithuanian? Then there is our personal favorite; The Flirty Competitor? Thanks for the memories.
Debra Miceli: $2 Million
Debra Miceli, also known as Madusa and Alundra Blayze, was a real trailer blazer (sorry) as a WWE Diva. Born in 1964, she was the first woman to win the Pro Wrestling Illustrated Rookie of the Year Award.
After retiring from professional wrestling, Miceli became a monster truck driver. In 2004, she won the co-championship at the Monster Jame World Finals. In 2015, she was rightfully inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
Amy Weber: $400,000
WWE Diva Amy Weber also works as a model, actress, dancer, and singer. She was born in Peoria, Illinois and is most well known for her work with WWE on SmackDown! Surprisingly, Weber did not get her big break from the WWE.
She made her entertainment debut in 1992 on an episode of Saved by the Bell. Three years later she made her silver screen debut in Forbidden Games. She has also worked as an image consultant for various WWE superstars.
Ariel, also know by her real name of Shelly Martinez, has worked at just about every level of independent and professional wrestling. She has worked for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, ECW, and Ohio Valley Wrestling.
Martinez proved popular at all these levels, but never found her way onto WE’s main roster. In 2017, after years of non-movement in her career, Martinez called in quits. She leaves behind a legacy of what could have been. The talent was there, but she was never really given a chance to show it.
Kia Stevens: Unkown
Kia Stevens is one of the most recognizable faces of the WWE. Not your traditional diva, the fighter known as Kharma made it her job to break boundaries in the world of professional wrestling. She is also known as Awesome Kong.
Although she was forced out of TNA in 2016, Steven still found a way to be involved in the sport she loved. Have you ever watch Glow on Netflix? Stevens plays Tamme Dawson, who goes by the stage name of The Welfare Queen.
