Top 15 Highest Paid Bodybuilders


John Cena

#6 John Cena

Net Worth: $30 Million

John Cena may have never been a force on the bodybuilding stage, but he knows how to make an impact. Before entering pro wrestling, Cena was a bodybuilder. He started lifting weights at 12. By the time he was 15, he was his hometown’s strongest person. But, he also had another passion: Wrestling.

Cena jumped from bodybuilding to wrestling in 1999. Since then, he’s become a 15-time world champion. As well, he’s a five-time US champion, trailing only Ric Flair for both records. Cena’s also made a rap CD, movies and TV appearances. He’s also been the face of the 10-Week BodyChange challenge and supplement companies.


  1. Nice how this story mentions how rich they are, but all have admitted steroid use. Arnold had open heart surgery at 49 due to clogged arteries due to steroid use. Horrible omission of REAL FACTS.

  2. Mr. Deez you fail to realize this article ISN’T about nutrition and supplementation. It only discusses the money they have made from the sport.
    What about Lee Labrada? He’s had a successful nutrition line for years.

  3. Lou Ferrigno is worth more than 6 million dollars and Arnold Schwarzenegger did not make 300 million dollars bodybuilding.He made that much including his movie career.

  4. I always thought it was strange how Lou Ferrigno is more muscular than Arnold Schwarzenrgger but Arnold Schwarzenegger always won when they competed against each other.

  5. There were some with better symmetry and good mass i.e. Serge Nubret and sergio Oliva but they lacked the business sense to make a fortune and felt comfortable in their Role. How many of us are Millionaires ?
    Secondly, The once who are financed BB at that time ( today the same ) are looking for the most charismatic Person which brings the Sport ( and the money rolling ) to the masses.
