Goldberg: $12 Million
One of the biggest guys in wrestling had one of the shortest careers of them all. A former professional football player for the Rams, Falcons and Panthers, Goldberg’s NFL career ended because of a major injury. He actually had his abdominal muscles tear away from his pelvis. Sound painful?
During his rehab, he met professional wrestlers Lex Luger and Sting, who urged him to get into the business. After a lot of contemplation and even more rehabilitation, he decided to give it a try. A short 7 years and $12 Million dollars later, it looks like he made a good decision.
Goldberg owns over 25 classic, collectable vintage automobiles. Among them are the rare but beautiful Shelby Cobra 427 and the Plymouth Hemi Cuda Convertible. He also likes to give back. He is an active animal welfare advocate and spokesman for the ASPCA. He has even addressed Congress on the importance of outlawing illegal animal fighting throughout the United States.
