Unlike Baszer, Rousey and Duke, Marina Shafir is the only person in the group that never got the chance to fight in the UFC. Her career in MMA was not as successful as she’d hoped it would be which is one of the reasons why she now aspires to be a professional wrestler instead. Her amateur MMA career looked very promising as she was undefeated by winning all 5 of her matches before she turned pro. Not to mention all of her amateur fights were won by submission in the first round. Sadly though, her skills did not translate as well as she’d hope for when she officially became a pro. While she did win her first professional fight also by submission, she lost her final two pro fights in the first round. Her professional fight record now stands at 1 win and 2 losses. She has never fought a professional fight since 2015. Now that it’s 2018, she is training to be a professional wrestler in the WWE’s world famous performance center.
Marina Shafir does not have to worry too much about the future because all trainees earn a base salary from the WWE before they graduate to NXT and then the main roster. As a main roster talent, most low level wrestlers usually earn over $50,000 to $100,000 per year. This number increases when wrestlers get more popular and can sell more merchandise. Most top level female performers can earn around $500,000 although this number is changing constantly thanks to the women getting bigger spots on the show. Shafir is also engaged to current NXT wrestler Roderick Strong also has also amassed an healthy amount of wealth during his lengthy professional wrestling career.
In all, we estimate Marina Shafir net worth in 2018 at $250,000.
