20 Richest Wrestlers in The World and Their Net Worth in 2020

Pretty much the entire globe has figured out that the WWE is not as real as it seems. This fact has however not impacted the attractiveness of the organization as they retain a legion of fans all around the world. Daily, millions of individuals tune in to watch their various shows. Their showpiece events, such as The WrestleMania, also generate much frenzy with tickets fetching high prices.

Such reality has helped WWE to remain a lucrative venture and their wrestlers keep smiling to the bank. They also shore up their wealth through other activities such as acting, podcasting, and endorsement deals. The elites amongst them now have fortunes running into millions of dollars.

Most of the Richest Wrestlers are Multi-Millionaires

20. Jeff Hardy (Net Worth – $8 Million)

19. Edge (Net Worth – $14 Million)
Age – 47

Edge

One of the most decorated superstars in SmackDown history, Edge dominated the scene in the 2000s, winning seven World Heavyweight Championships, 12 World Tag Team Championships, as well as four WWE Championships. He sadly suffered several neck injuries and was forced to retire in 2011.

In the years after that, Edge kept himself busy with podcasts as well as acting gigs in TV series such as Vikings and Haven. His passion for wrestling however gnawed at him and so upon getting medical clearance in 2019, he returned to the WWE. He was promptly given a three-year contract which would see him earn $3 million.

Age – 63

Hart may not be such a familiar face to modern-day wrestling fans but for those who watched the show in the 80s and 90s, he was simply one of the best things to ever happen. Thanks to the technical prowess that he brought to the ring, Hart helped changed the perception of professional wrestling as a whole.

He also won numerous titles, five WWF World Heavyweight Champion and two WCW World Heavyweight Champion. The two-time king of the ring is now regarded as one of the greatest pro wrestlers of all times.

His collection includes a Pontiac Fiero, GMC Typhoon, 1996 Ford Mustang Cobra, 1996 Chevrolet Impala SS, Chevrolet Silverado SS, 1978 Camaro Z28, 1970 Pontiac GTO, 1973 Super-Duty Trans Am, and 1962 Ford Thunderbird, amongst others.

Even though the former multiple world heavyweight champion occasionally makes cameo appearances in the ring, he is more focused on his acting career. His acting career has so far been quite impressive with appearances in blockbuster movies such as Guardians of the Galaxy I and II, Avengers: Endgame, Avengers: Infinity War, Stuber, My Spy, Hotel Artemis, Blade Runner 2049, Bushwick, Heist, Spectre, and Marauder. Batista was reportedly paid $1.4 million for his role in Guardians of the Galaxy while his paycheck for the James Bond film, Spectre, was $1 million.

The heartbreak kid may no longer be active on the WWE roster but there is no denying what he accomplished in the world of pro wrestling. His career accolades include three WWF Championships, one WWE heavyweight championship, and two Royal Rumble titles.

Michaels has also been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame twice. First was as an individual and the next was as a member of the renowned group, D-Generation X.

13. The Undertaker (Net Worth – $17 Million)
Age – 55

Undertaker

Back in 2011, The Undertaker was worth as much as $34 million. This was thanks to earnings from his brilliant wrestling career as well as some off-ring ventures, including a $2.7 million investment into real estate with a business partner, Scott Everhart.

Nine years down the line, The Undertaker’s fortune has dipped by nearly half. No reason has been given for this but it could be due to his declining career that eventually came to an end at the Survivor Series in June 2020. There is also the possibility that his investments may not have lived up to expectations.

12. Chris Jericho (Net Worth – $18 Million)
Age – 50

Beyond the wrestling world, Jericho has made forays into the world of television, stage acting, and podcasting. He is also an entrepreneur and has a few business ventures to his name. One of them is a sports training facility in Tampa known as D1 Sports Training and Therapy.

Another business venture of Jericho’s is an annual sea cruise known as Rock and Wrestling Rager At Sea. Each cruise lasts about four days and features wrestling, music, comedy, and more. Its few editions so far have all been sold out and this has helped consolidate Jericho’s status as one of the richest wrestlers in the world.

11. Mick Foley (Net Worth – $18 Million)
Age – 55

Mick Foley

Since retiring in 2012, Foley has focused on a career in showbiz and has appeared in several movies and TV shows. He has also penned some books and is a standup comic as well.

Big Show

Occupying the tenth spot on the list of the richest wrestlers in the world is Big Show. Billed as the world’s largest athlete, Big Show draws his paychecks from wrestling and also from Hollywood. He has appeared in several TV shows as well as some movies over the years.

7. Hulk Hogan (Net Worth – $25 Million)
Age – 67

Hulk Hogan

Hulk Hogan won several championships in the 80s. This spread his fame far and wide and so, he received endorsement deals from numerous companies.

This resulted in income running into hundreds of millions but the superstar squandered it through lavish spending on cars, houses, and exotic vacations for loved ones.

By 2008, Hogan had to sell off his luxurious Florida mansion and move into a rented place. His finances were further complicated by an expensive divorce from his wife of 23 years, Linda. Thankfully, Hogan has been able to get back on his feet and is now worth $25 million.

6. Stone Cold Steve Austin (Net Worth – $30 Million)
Age – 56

Stone Cold

Much like Batista, Stone Cold is another wrestling legend who has seriously pursued acting upon retirement.

In The Condemned, Austin plays the lead role of Jack, a death row convict who is purchased by a wealthy TV producer and ferried off to an island to fight against nine other convicted murderers. Liberty is only for the survivor of the contest.

Age – 43

John Cena

Thanks to his exploits in the ring (he has won the World Championships 16 times), as well as a clean-cut hero-like persona, Cena has emerged as one of the most popular and beloved wrestlers in contemporary times.

Cena has so far scored juicy deals with the likes of YJ Stinger, Subway, American Body Builders, Gillett, Fruity Pebbles, Wonderful Pistachios, and Honda.

2. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (Net Worth – $320 Million)
Age – 48

The Rock

Back in 2011, The Rock was juggling his acting and pro wrestling career and had a net worth of $55 million. One eagle-eyed industry watcher pointed out that he had the makings of a great action movie star and could surpass a $100 million net worth in the future. It is about eight years since that bold prediction and The Rock has more than fulfilled it.

He is now the highest-paid movie star in the world and easily collects about $20 million per film. He has also featured in several blockbusters including Fast and Furious 8, and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. The Rock is also cashing in on his lucrative ventures including a fashion line known as Under Armour and a tequila brand known as Teremana.

1. Vince McMahon (Net Worth – $1.8 Billion)
Age – 44

A tenacious McMahon joined his father’s small wrestling company in the year 1972 and purchased it a decade later. He then proceeded to transform it from a regional operation to a global one.

A good portion of this goes to McMahon who has faced criticism for not providing enough health insurance for wrestlers and requiring them to work during the covid-19 pandemic.
