Wondering about Vince McMahon's net worth? As the owner of the highly successful World Wrestling Entertainment franchise (formerly the WWF and now WWE), Vince McMahon took a fledgling business and created a brand that everyone, even those who don't watch wrestling, are quite familiar with. Born in 1945, McMahon began working with his father, Vince McMahon, Sr. in 1971 for the then small wrestling television show and company.
After his father's death, McMahon and his wife Linda began to promote the business, bringing on stars that would go on to be international stars. Many of the WWE's wrestlers are famous even today: Hulk Hogan, Macho Man Randy Savage, Andre the Giant, the Honky Tonk Man, the Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase. And, of course, there are the stars of the former and current WWE roster: Matt Hardy and Jeff Hardy (both as single competitors and a tag team), Bret The Hitman Hart, Mick Foley (and his various characters), the Undertaker, Kane, John Cena, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, and The Rock (Dwayne Johnson).
According to both Forbes and Celebrity Networth, Vince McMahon is estimated to have a net worth of about 1.1 billion dollars, with the WWE as a billion dollar business. This of course includes the merger of the competition, such as Ted Turner's World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and ECW, both of which were bought out by McMahon, taking the wrestlers from those organizations. Currently, the company is a family owned business, with Shane and Stephanie McMahon (McMahon's children) holding shares. Stephanie is even married to wrestler Triple H.
The WWE is also the proprietor of several special events, notably that of Wrestlemania, Summer Slam, and King of the Ring. Vince McMahon's net worth continues to grow with several WWE shows, as well as with the shift towards some of its wrestlers turning to the big screen.
