Meet the richest athlete in the World

According to Forbes, the richest athlete with a net worth of $2.2 billion is an American former professional wrestler known as Vince McMahon.

Vince McMahon is the current majority owner/chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) who took control of the company from his father in the 1980’s 

Although the larger part of his incredible net worth of $2.2 billion came from his success with the WWE Company, a part of it was from his professional wrestling success.

Vince who worked for his father at the WWE as a commentator and took control of the company in 1982, saw the commercial potential of monopolizing the industry which was initially run as separate entities especially in the United State of America.

His unwavering determination to dominate the industry led to the founding of the most successful professional wrestling event in history known as WrestleMania.

Vince McMahon who is also the eldest son of the McMahon family is known to have brought professional wrestling to the limelight.
