Mick Foley Net Worth – $15 million Foley fought under the names Cactus Jack, Mankind, and Dude Love and even made the New York Times bestseller list with his book Have a Nice Day which was published in 1999. He went on to become the RAW manager and wrestled occasionally throughout the 2000s. 2 9. The Undertaker $16 million Wrestlemania is the big pay day for most wrestlers, and Mark Calaway–a.k.a. The Undertaker– has been the headliner for many of them, so naturally he lands on this list. He’s been in the wrestling business for 30 years and was known for his undefeated streak at Wrestlemania until it was broken three years ago, and he just retired a couple weeks ago at Wrestlemania. 8. Shawn Michaels $17 million Michaels was in and out of wrestling for nearly 30 years due to injuries and drug problems, but he racked up a lot of money during his career and was World Champion four different times. 7. Chris Jericho $18 million Jericho has 29 championships from wrestling but also makes a lot of his net worth from his book writing, being the lead singer for his band FOZZY, and other celebrity appearances including Dancing with the Stars. 6. Kurt Angle $20 million Angle was an Olympic gold medalist before he came to professional wrestling. He rose to the top of the WWE very quickly before he endured neck injuries and painkillers and alcohol abuse. He signed with TNA and wrestled occasionally in WWE, and he was just named manager of RAW. 5. The Big Show $20 million The Big Show is a big man, seven feet tall and over 400 pounds, so it’s no surprise that he’s been a mainstay in not only professional wrestling but also in Hollywood. He’s appeared in movies like Jingle All the Way and The WaterBoy and has earned big paychecks from his many Wrestlemania appearances. 4. Triple H $25 million The 14-time World Champion now is the vice president of the WWE and appears to be next in line to take over the company as he is married to Vince McMahon’s daughter. 3. John Cena $35 million Ever since his first title win in 2005, Cena has been the top guy for Wrestlemania and fought many pay-per-view matches. He’s now dipping into Hollywood roles, so his worth is sure to skyrocket. 2. Stone Cold Steve Austin $45 million Stone Cold Steve Austin might be the most popular wrestler of all time. He’s earned his worth from the many pay-per-view events he’s headlined, including WrestleMania 17 which earned 1.4 million buys, the first time a wrestling pay-per-view ever reached a million. He’s also made tons of money after merchandise and other celebrity appearances. 1. Dwyane “The Rock” Johnson $70 million By now you know of The Rock’s fame. Started as a football player, became a wrestler, rose to the top of the wrestling world, and now has become a Hollywood star. He was the top paid actor for the last calendar year due to his roles in The Fast and Furious series and continues to gain recognition and attention. He’s been the poster boy and blueprint for the wrestler to Hollywood star model. Honorable Mention: Nikki Bella $5.5 million The new fiance of John Cena, Nikki has become a crowd favorite and has parlayed her celebrity status into a reality show, Total Divas. She has sustained some injuries and her wrestling career may be in jeopardy, but her relationship status with one of the most popular wrestlers and her time in the spotlight should propel her into other lucrative business ventures. Honorable Mention: Hulk Hogan North of $100 million Hulk Hogan was a decorated wrestler and made millions before he had his own reality tv show. He’s now worth over $100 million due to a lawsuit he won against Gawker Media.
