However, AEW wrestlers receive these perks irrespective of the role or tier.

2. Chris Jericho ($3 Million)

You must be be living under a stone if you’ve never heard about Y2J. Having one of the most elite performers in the business must be a huge flex for AEW over WWE. He’s built a net worth of $18 million during his career, also being part of the band Fozzy and podcast Talk is Jericho. AEW pays him $3 million.

1. Jon Moxley ($6 Million)

If having Jericho is a flex for AEW, then having WWE’s Dean Ambrose over as Jon Moxley is a straight-up middle finger. Moxley is the reigning AEW World Champion with a net worth of $6.1 million. Unlike the low pay $2.2 million he got during his time with WWE, AEW pays him a good amount of $6 million.
