The Rock: $70 Million
Dwayne Johnson is so incredibly well-known today for his work on the silver screen that many of his fans don’t even know that he started out as a professional wrestler. This is understandable, since he hasn’t wrestled since 2003. It’s scary to think that anyone who is 12 or younger wasn’t even alive the last time this guy raised his trademarked eyebrow in the ring.
At a staggering $70 Million dollars the Rock has out-earned every other wrestler that has ever jumped from the top turnbuckle. Most of that is from high profile movies like the Fast & the Furious, G.I.Joe and the Tooth fairy. Come on, you remember Dwayne in the Fairy outfit, right?
When he isn’t throwing punches, he is taking them. He has a daughter that he dotes on and two nephews that give him a run for his money in the workout room. One is in the NFL and the other is at UCLA. Both play football and attempt to out-bench press their famous uncle at every turn. Good luck boys.
