Hulk Hogan’s wrestling earnings
The majority of Hulk Hogan’s net worth has come from his wrestling, unsurprisingly. With a career that has spanned over four decades on and off, it comes as no shock that Hogan has earned a lot.
In his own autobiography, Hulk Hogan claims that he was making around $10 million per year at his peak in the late 1980s. However, this has not been confirmed by anyone in the WWE. His status as wrestling’s biggest star does suggest that Mr. America could merit such an outlandish wage.
Away from the ring, Hulk Hogan kept himself busy. He tried his hand at acting, earning $15,000 for a role in ‘Rocky III’. Other attempts at breaking into the Hollywood world include ‘No Holds Barred’ and ‘Suburban Commando.’
Furthermore, Hogan had a short-lived foray into the small screen with his reality TV show ‘Hogan Knows Best.’ Following Hulk and his family in their daily lives, the show ran for four seasons on different TV channels.
Hulk Hogan was born in Augusta, Georgia, on August 11, 1953. He began playing baseball in Port Tampa, Florida after his family relocated there. But he got injured. After that, he began watching professional wrestling at the age of 16 and idolized Dusty Rhodes.
He made his WWE debut in 1979 and has since left the company several times. Hogan married Linda Claridge on December 18, 1983. They have two children: Brooke, a daughter, and Nick, a son.
Linda filed for divorce in November 2007, claiming that Hogan was cheating on her. Hulk is currently married to Jeniffer McDaniel, whom he met in 2008. The couple became engaged in November 2009 and married on December 14, 2010.
The divorce saw Hulk give up 70% of the couple’s combined assets, as well $3 million to cover property disputes. Linda also claimed a large chunk of ownership in the Hulkster’s business ventures.
In contrast, the invasion of Hogan’s personal life resulted in a significant financial reward. He won a settlement of $31 million from the website Gawker in 2020 after they leaked a tape of the WWE legend sleeping with his best friend’s wife.
