Brock Lesnar tops annual list of highest-paid athletes

In 2017 it looked like the athlete’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Friday (July 19) that Lesnar is the highest-paid athlete in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between June 2018 and June 2019, a nearly $20 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The American athlete has an estimated net worth of $145 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Lesnar Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Webster Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderlesnar - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Brock) and a fashion line called “Brock Lesnar Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Brock fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
