There have been a lot of shockingly rich people in professional wrestling, and not just the guy who owns the company. People who have so much money, we kind of question why they even bother wrestling at all. Surely, people with that kind of money would prefer to spend their time doing something that doesn’t involve getting in knockdown, drag-out fights on a weekly basis. But wrestling doesn’t always have to make sense, and with that in mind, presented for your consideration are the 10 wrestling characters who we judged to be the most filthy rich of the bunch.
Just to make it clear, this is not a list of wrestlers who are actually rich in real life. We’re not accountants, finding that information would be incredibly difficult, if not impossible, and this is more fun, anyway.
10. Lord Steven Regal
Honestly, we’re not sure if they ever specifically said that Regal is rich, but he’s clearly British royalty. You’d have to think he has a manor house somewhere in England, filled with priceless works of art and antique furniture, right? They don’t hand lordships out to every halfway decent UK musician and actor who wants one, after all, it’s not like a knighthood. According to Wikipedia, even the lowest rank of lord still involves a certain level of wealth through land ownership. It’s possible that Regal is only a Baron, which would be the lowest rank of Lord, and is usually a more hereditary title. However, that seems unlikely, as he clearly outranked Robert, the Earl of Eaton, which would mean that Regal has to be at least a Marquess, and more likely a Duke. Yes, we totally looked up the official ranks of English nobility in order to make this point. The bottom line is, Regal clearly had some sort of money even when he came to WWE. As General Manager, he had a silver tea service, after all. Those things aren’t cheap.
