On Brock Lesnar and whether he's the highest paid wrestler in WWE:

Meltzer also noted that Brock is doing more dates for WWE because it's part of his new deal. The subject of Cena's pay came up in the Wrestling Observer forum. Meltzer said, "John is closing in on $10 million per year."

When you consider that Cena works on all live events when he's healthy, does tons of charity work, and makes appearances even on days when he probably should be off, I think he's earning every penny. Cena has been a top merchandise seller for about a decade.
