Hulk Hogan, in his autobiography, has mentioned that he used to make around $10 million per year during the later phases of the 1980s. It is to be noted that during this period the wrestler was at his ultimate peak.

However, there comes no confirmation about it from the wrestling company of WWE. Although, Steve Austin was making twelve million in his peak. It wouldn’t be out of the ordinary for Hogan to make the same espescially when he was the foundation around which the WWE was built in the 80’s.
