5. Sheamus, $1, 000, 000 Plus First Class Travel
Considering that Sheamus only debuted in 2009, he has done amazingly well to be on such a lucrative million dollar contract just four years into his career. WWE clearly values the Irish star very highly, and a lot of that is said to be down to the personal relationship Sheamus struck up with Triple H. The two became great gym buddies when Sheamus first broke into WWE, and Hunter was very impressed with the work ethic and enthusiasm that Sheamus demonstrated. Hunter went as far to book himself in a match with Sheamus at Wrestlemania in 2010 (although 'The Game' stopped short of doing the job for his friend). WWE has consistently put Sheamus in the upper mid card and main event as they look to get value on his contract. They had the Irishman win the 2012 Royal Rumble and he is also a two time WWE champion in addition to being a world champion. With Sheamus earning so much money, you can guarantee that WWE are going to push him very strong when he returns in 2014. A match against The Undertaker at Mania, or another title chase will surely be in his near future.
