John Cena had been the face of the company for the last decade, he was not just the highest base salary man among weekly performers but also matchless when it came to switching merchandise. But this is a game and name & fame are part of this game. The ones who performs well goes to the top and they get paid accordingly so the new statistics reveal that John Cena is no more the highest paid WWE wrestler and Brock Lesnar has surpassed him, becoming the top ranked in the list of highest paid WWE wrestlers with $12million dollars. Hope he becomes the new face for the company in the coming years.
