The Cenation leader John Cena has been the favorite superstar in sight of Vince McMahon and according to report, he is one of the top earners in the WWE.
AllWrestlingnews reported that, John Cena is unhappy with the Brock Lesnar-Goldberg situation and the fact that they are being paid big money for working a limited schedule.
The report stated that Cena believes he should be treated in the same manner by Vince McMahon.
According to the reports, Cena feels that his dedication towards the WWE is taken for granted by Vince McMahon. It should be noted that Cena is still by far the highest earner in the WWE, earning a whopping $9.5 million a year. Lesnar, on the other hand, receives $6 million. The numbers are likely to be much higher if you included the merchandise sales.
Lesnar’s contract is rumored to include 22 dates of Monday Night Raw a year apart from the 4 Pay-Per-View appearances. It should be noted that Lesnar wrestled in 5 PPVs in 2015 and 2014. Over the last couple of years, Lesnar has shown more willingness to work more dates that would have also meant paying him an extra fee.
It is easy to forget that Lesnar has only worked full-time for two years in the WWE. John Cena, on the other hand, has helped carry the company for about 11 years. So it is not unfair to say that he has earned a lighter schedule. Either which ways, when he is away from the WWE, Cena still has numerous projects piling up by the minute.
