Over the course of the last couple of decades, the wrestling business has made some wrestlers seriously rich. It should be noted, however, that no one on this list has a higher net worth than the boss himself, Vince McMahon. Vince stands alone with a net worth of $1.2 billion as of 2015. So to answer some questions, yes, Vince does have enough money to sign a couple of wrestler paychecks every month.
Wrestlers on this list made a fortune working for Vince. Most of these wrestlers however, also managed to make some serious cash outside of the wrestling business whether it be in movies, TV shows or endorsements. For these wrestlers, making serious money came through hard and devotion for the wrestling business (except if you’re The Rock, which we will discuss in this article). Here are the 15 highest WWE net worths in history! Let us know who you think will be the future number one. Enjoy!
15 Bret Hart: $14 million
14 Bill Goldberg: $14 million
13 Mick Foley: $15 million
12 Jeff Jarrett: $15 million
11 Brock Lesnar: $16 million
10 The Undertaker: $16 million
9 Shawn Michaels: $17 million
8 Chris Jericho: $18 million
7 Kurt Angle: $20 million
6 Big Show: $20 million
5 Triple H: $25 million
4 Stephanie McMahon: $25 million
3 John Cena: $35 million
2 Stone Cold Steve Austin: $45 million
1 The Rock: $160 million
In 1996, the WWE gave birth to an absolute mega star. The Rock would eventually dominate the landscape of the WWE, becoming the face of the industry. He would later take his talents outside of the ring, becoming one of the biggest movie stars in Hollywood. It is estimated Dwayne brought in $44 million in 2013 from wrestling, acting and endorsements. He topped this off by making another cool $54 million in 2014. With The Rock hotter than ever and just recently signing a mega deal with Under Armour, expect this number to once again skyrocket.
For those of you wondering, yes, The Rock is still getting paid by the WWE. Some believe he is getting paid between 2$-3$ million per year on a part time basis. It’s good to be The Rock!
