Married WWE superstars Mike and Maryse Mizanin from USA’s reality series Miz & Mrs. are rocking a serious bank account thanks to years in the wrestling spotlight, but also smart real estate and product deals.
The couple has a combined net worth of $14 million. Mike launched his career via MTV when he appeared in both The Real World and Real World/Road Rules in the early 2000s. He moved into the WWE space in 2004, which is where he joined forces with Maryse. The couple has won 20 championships between themselves. Plus, Maryse appeared on the reality show, Total Divas.
Being a villain paid off for Mike and Maryse Mizanin
Mike told Showbiz Cheat Sheet that he and wife Maryse are always the villains in the ring – which apparently pays very well. On average, WWE stars make about $500,000 a year, which would amount to a cool million for the couple. But that’s only the average pay. Mike and Maryse are household names so they likely earned far more cash than the typical WWE personality.
While the couple was not ranked in the top 10 earning list, their individual salaries from WWE could lean closer to $1 million each. One source reports that Mike’s WWE salary is about $1.2 million per year. He apparently made $2.5 million in base salary from his 2018 WWE contract.
Currently, Brock Lesnar is the highest-paid wrestler making $10 million annually.
‘The Miz & Mrs.’ projects are also fueling their net worth
The couple’s real estate deals are showcased on their USA show. They’ve been filmed moving a few times. The couple listed their Hollywood Hills West home for $3.6 million in 2017, which they purchased for $1.865 million five years prior. After a year on the market, they ended up selling it for $3.05 million, according to Realtor.com.
They then purchased a home in Austin, Texas, which they ended up listing for $2.75 million. It sold for $2.64 million. In 2019, they returned to California and bought a sprawling mansion in Thousand Oaks for $6.4 million. The 10,000 square foot home features six bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms.
While the couple is making money from real estate deals, their hustle doesn’t stop there. They both have extensive product deals. Mike’s include Domino’s Pizza and Coke to name a few. Maryse recently partnered with Volition Beauty to promote their skincare line.
In addition to their hit reality show and previous film and television appearances, the couple doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon. They recently told Showbiz Cheat Sheet they’d be open to appearing on the Bravo show, Below Deck as charter guests. “Of course, I mean if they wanna give us a yacht for us to be on for a couple of days, we’ll be the jerks and the fun people,” Mike laughed. “We’ll be those fun people. If they wanna take us to the Greek islands, sure!”
