Bengaluru, June 28: Vince McMahon created a company named World Wrestling Federation with a simple principle of scripted wrestling that has now become the global brand named WWE. This is the pinnacle of sports entertainment by all means which is ruling the industry for a long time making McMahon the father of this huge empire.
It would not be wrong to define The Boss as the one who changed the course of Pop Culture on his own. A simple entertainment brand has become a household name for the sports fans through their weekly shows that in turn continued to out more money to McMahon's pocket. Thus he became a Billionaire whose net worth seems to be growing day by day.
As per Forbes.com, Vince McMahon's net worth is $2.8 billion which witnessed a massive jump of $1.3 billion from last year. This is a direct reflection of the two humongous deals that WWE has gone through with Fox Sports and Saudi Arabia sports authority.
Fox would be airing Smackdown Live for the next five years on their platforms along with additional contents for a value of $5 billion to the WWE brand. If that's not enough then the company also receives around $50 million or more, twice a year from hosting the Saudi shows. It took the overall WWE net worth to $5.71 billion.
