WWE legend Mick Foley has earned more than £100,000 on Cameo over the last six months, according to new research.
A study by Cameo Money Makers – which is based on the Hall of Famer’s review count and fee on the site – has estimated the earnings by top stars selling personalised videos on the platform.
After joining the site in June, Mick has 1,944 reviews to date – with over 1,000 of those being five-star – and charges £74.25 per video.
This gives him a total of at least £144,342 earnings, although Cameo itself takes a 25% cut of any on-site earnings – meaning his profit is around £108,256.
Not surprisingly, the Hardcore Legend has also revealed he donates 10% of each sale to selected charities, which means he’s donated more than £10,000 from money earnt from the site in 2020.
Using the same criteria, former Raw commentator Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler – with 159 reviews and a £225 fee – has pulled in a massive £32,198 via the platform once Cameo’s cut is accounted for.
And the Nature Boy Ric Flair has seen his earnings total £38,812 after Cameo takes its 25%.
There has also been some controversy after WWE stopped its performers from making money independently through third party platforms including Twitch and Cameo.
Back to Foley, his high earnings will be welcomed after he previously admitted his iconic Hell In A Cell war with The Undertaker at King of the Ring 1998 have had a lasting impact on himself and his wallet.

He exclusively told Metro.co.uk last year: ‘Yeah, I would say Hell In A Cell – I think it may have shortened my career.
‘It was definitely the point from which I believed in my own mortality, so everything was different following that cell match.
‘I don’t have any regrets – I have some small regrets about things I did later in my career. But no, I don’t regret starting that match on top of the cell.’
The match itself was full of memorable moments, including Foley – wrestling as Mankind – being thrown off the towering cell, and slammed through the roof to the mat far below.
‘Things did not work out like I’d have hoped,’ he admitted. ‘The cell collapsing when I was chokeslammed still has fallout for me!
‘I just paid $425 to remove my bottom flipper – which are false teeth which were knocked out in that cell – and I’ll have to pay $15,000 or so to get those teeth fixed.’
