Vince McMahon is back on the Forbes billionaire list.
McMahon, the Chairman and CEO of WWE, currently has a net worth of $3.2 billion and is listed at #691. Forbes noted WWE generates “nearly $1 billion in annual revenue.”
A third generation wrestling promoter, McMahon grew up in a trailer park in North Carolina and joined his father’s small wrestling company in 1972. McMahon purchased the business 10 years later, then transformed the World Wrestling Federation from a regional operation into a global phenomenon. WWF (now called WWE) went public in 1999; today its programs are broadcast in roughly 150 countries and more than 30 languages.
