Rumors are floating around that John Cena is now making close to $10 million a year from WWE. Those numbers are astounding when you compare it to what the majority of the roster makes on a yearly basis. Most don't even make one tenth of that amount. However, Cena is a special case because of everything that he does for the company. His merchandise also moves very well.

Another interesting backstage story in WWE has been told by Court Bauer, a former writer for the company. He stated that management purposely made it where CM Punk could never sell more merchandise than John Cena. Whenever the number for Punk merchandise would rise, the company would then produce more products for Cena. They also shipped out a lot more Cena merchandise to the live events to make sure Punk did not beat him.
