Net Worth

Vince McMahon’s net worth is $3.2 billion. He is a self-made man who came from very humble beginnings. Even though it is not often mentioned in interviews, McMahon lived in a trailer park for some of his youth.

However, when he finished school, he started working for his father as a wrestling promoter as well as an announcer.

During this time, his net worth was close to zero, and within a few decades, he was able to become a millionaire, and later, a billionaire.

His dedication to wrestling and passion for consumer marketing led him to make innovative, creative decisions that would positively affect the company.

While most of his net worth comes from World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), he is also the founder of Alpha Entertainment, the holding company for the American Football League, XFL.

He was named as one of the wealthiest Americans by Forbes and ranked 239 in 2008. In 2018, McMahon made $5.6 million from the WWE as a salary, not including bonuses and stock options.

His net worth has drastically increased as a result of his large ownership share of the WWE. McMahon owns 32 million shares of WWE, which are valued at $83.

Every time that the price of WWE stock rises one dollar, McMahon earns $32 million.

While it has not been disclosed the amount that McMahon has made from XFL, McMahon has invested a good deal of his own finances into the venture in hopes to relaunching in 2020.

His dedication to XFL speaks for itself as he cashed on $100 million worth of WWE stock so he could fund the new, revamped XFL.

The money would fund salaries for coaches and players in addition to insurance policies, etc. McMahon is deeply committed to seeing through the XFL at this time.

Records show that McMahon and his wife, Linda, make over $100 million per year as a couple. Linda is also a prominent shareholder of WWE stock.

The couple has diversified their investments among a wide range of different assets across the board.

Together, they profit and accumulate money, making them one of the wealthiest families in the United States, specifically on the east coast.

This rags to riches story inspires many to work hard to achieve their goals. Even though McMahon is in his seventies, he continues to be in good health and able to make the best decisions for his business.

His net worth continues to soar every day. Today, with a net worth of $3.2 billion, he has accumulated an average of $80 per minute for his whole life, which is approximately $4,800 per hour.

Since McMahon did not earn this money during his childhood years, this calculation is just an example to demonstrate the amount of wealth that McMahon currently possesses.

Additionally, as McMahon continues to further develop his skills with age and experience, the world can expect to see more from him. The immense success of the WWE may be a predictor of the future of XFL.

If McMahon has proven anything with his success is that he does not give up and always finds a way to make things happen.

The lessons of his career choices have greatly impacted his family, including his daughter, Stephanie McMahon, is also a Chief Brand Officer at WWE along with her husband, Paul Michael Levesque (Triple H) former wrestler and current executive at WWE.

He, however, did not leave empty-handed. He took McMahon’s elder brother, Rod, with him. McMahon did not meet Rod until he was 12 years old.

McMahon came from very humble beginnings as well as long lineage of promoters. Roderick James McMahon, his paternal grandfather, was also a promoter who was known as “Jess McMahon.”

His great grandparents were Irish emigrants from County Galway. After his father’s disappearance, Vince was raised as “Vinnie Lupton” and spent the majority of his children living with his mother and many different stepfathers who acted as poor father figures.

Vince later claimed that one of his stepfathers, Leo Lupton, was very violent towards his mother. When McMahon would try to intercede in order to protect his mother, Leo would commence to attack McMahon allegedly.

McMahon had gone on record with saying that his stepfather died before he got the chance to kill him. He also attributes becoming a strong person to the years of hardship and struggles.

Without that level of adversity, he might not have been able to use his initial strength to help him persevere no matter the circumstance. He used his anger and rage to propel him forward in life.

McMahon also learned discipline from attending the Fishburne Military School in Waynesboro, Virginia, from which he graduated in 1964. Another struggle which McMahon had to overcome in his early years was dyslexia.

After Linda became president in 1993 and CEO in 1997, the company’s growth truly transformed, making a special time in the wrestling industry. Vince and Linda were considered marketing and business geniuses.

He and his wife worked side by side on the executive end of the business. Linda was heavily immersed in product merchandising as she negotiated the company’s deals with outside vendors.

In 1984, she established the first line of action figures, Wrestling Superstars. Working as a couple, they were able to help expand the company’s brand, reaching a younger demographic.

With children being a new target audience, they were able to create more products suited for these fans. His wife also was instrumental in negotiating the company’s TV deal with Viacom in 2000.

While he and Linda have very different backgrounds, they have managed to combine their strengths in both their personal and professional lives to achieve optimal success.

Linda often says that she was a jock and enjoyed playing baseball and basketball. As an only child, she often assumed the role of a tomboy, sharing special moments with her father.

Linda believes that understanding the male psyche helped her build a solid relationship with Vince. Additionally, it allows her to thrive in a male-dominated environment without sacrificing her personal life.

The WWE wouldn’t be where it is today without the influence of both Vince and Linda as executives.
