His consistent efforts in the ring, as well as his ability to engage the audience, became a key part of his stardom. It was because of his huge following and popularity that WWE realized Brock Lesnar was an absolute asset. Well, they paid him well and his net worth jumped.

Compared to former WWE superstar Dave Bautista, who is currently in Hollywood, Lesnar’s net worth is almost 1.5 times higher than him. Apparently, Bautista’s net worth is around $16 million and he worked in Avengers and Guardian of the Galaxies. He has a new movie from the same franchise coming up.

Additionally, Bautista has worked on other films such as Army of the Dead and My Spy. Even though those movies made money, it didn’t increase his net worth as much as Lesnar’s during his time in WWE.

Now, net worth does not only depend on what is earned, but also what is done with the money.
