When Vince McMahon took over his father’s wrestling company in 1982, the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), it was a small regional outfit. McMahon turned it into a global phenomenon, creating a unique blend of sports and entertainment that has captivated fans for decades.
McMahon was a hands-on CEO, involved in all aspects of the company. He has been credited with creating the WrestleMania spectacle, as well as innovating such elements as storylines, pay-per-views and merchandising.
While the WWF/WWE has had its share of controversies over the years, McMahon had remained a fixture in the industry. He was at one point one of the richest and most powerful men in sports entertainment, having now retired from his position in 2022.
Vince McMahon Net Worth 2022
In 2022, Vince McMahon is set to have a net worth of around $2.5 billion US Dollars. This is estimated due to WWE’s recent growth in popularity and the large amount of money McMahon has made from the global brand.
WWE has been able to grow its viewership by streaming its content on the internet and through social media, helping the company to break into more territories.
McMahon has also taken advantage of the international market, expanding WWE’s reach to countries such as China and India. This has helped WWE become a global brand and increase its profits significantly.
The former WWE CEO is likely to increase his liquid earnings now that he has retired from the company.
