WWE fans are about to learn a whole lot more about Nikki Bella. The professional wrestler, whose real name is Stephanie Nicole Garcia-Colace, stars in the new E! reality series Total Bellas, which documents her life with John Cena and which begins airing on October 5th at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The two clearly live quite comfortably, but what is Nikki Bella’s net worth and yearly salary?
Nikki Bella’s net worth is currently estimated to be $1.5 million. Though the net worth of a few of Bella’s coworkers is unknown, it appears that Nikki is the wealthiest female superstar currently signed to the SmackDown Live brand.
In terms of salary, Bella tops the list of female wrestlers in the WWE with a yearly salary of $112,500. Behind her is her sister, Brie Bella, who makes $90,500. Also on the list is Natalya, who makes $74,410, and Alicia Fox, who makes $72,520. It should be noted, though, that the salaries of some of the WWE’s recent hires are not clear at this time.
Nikki Bella has been with the WWE since June 2007, making her in-ring debut with her sister Brie in September 2007. She was called up to SmackDown the following August. For a while, she and Brie competed together as a tag team, known as the Bella Twins, and they would often help out one another when one performed solo. They eventually made their way to Raw and then to NXT, where they had a storyline with Daniel Bryan and eventually turned heel.
In April 2011, Nikki helped Brie to win the Diva’s Championship, and Nikki would go on to win the championship for herself the following year. Nikki eventually turned heel again when she attacked her sister Brie and then won the Divas’s Championship a second time. She ended up holding the championship for 301 days, eventually losing it to Charlotte. She then had to go on hiatus due to a legitimate neck injury, which required surgery and was so extensive that some believed she may never wrestle again. This injury and her subsequent recovery will be documented on this season of Total Bellas.
In addition to her work in the WWE, Nikki Bella has had a bit of experience with acting, guest starring on shows like Psych and Ridiculousness, as well as in the film Confessions of a Womanizer. She is dating John Cena, and the couple lives together in an incredibly nice house in Tampa, Florida. Cena’s own net worth is $35 million.
