Kevin Nash first appeared on the scene as “Steel” with the WCW in 1990. Over the years, he went through several names, personas, and company changes. He signed with the WWF in 1993 as Diesel or, Big Daddy Cool. In ’96, he became a crucial part of the New World Order alongside WWE legend Hulk Hogan.
These days, Nash is still very busy in the pro-wrestling world. He still gets in the ring as a part of the independent circuit on occasion, and he’s set to return later this month to the WWE for a Raw Reunion show. The athlete has also appeared in several films and TV shows, including “Magic Mike” and “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch.” He also co-authored a comic book in the late 90s that’s named after himself.

Hulk Hogan is one of the biggest names in all of wrestling, and his fame doesn’t end in the ring. Hogan, also known as Terry Bollea, is a six-time WWF World Heavyweight Champion and was inducted into the WWE’s hall of fame in 2013. He has been a part of the sport in one way or another since the 1970s and is still active within the WWE today. Hogan became so popular among fans that he even starred in his own reality show called "Hogan Knows Best."
The wrestling legend has appeared in quite a number of films over the years, including "Rocky III," "Mr. Nanny," "Muppets From Space," and "Santa With Muscles." He has also appeared in several music videos and video games, as well as releasing his own video game in 2011. He has two children with his ex-wife, one of whom is his daughter Brooke who had her own reality show that spun off from her father called "Brooke Knows Best." Hulk recently appeared on RAW for a special reunion show which included other fan favorites from the past, like Stone Cold Steve Austin, and tweeted out to his fans that he and the other veterans were going to take over the WWE.

Big Show, born Paul Donald Wight II, took over the WWE for several years on end. The 7-foot tall pro wrestler has always been named rather aptly, first going by The Giant before changing his name to what he’s known as today. He’s won seven world championships over the course of his career, including numerous World Heavyweight Championships. He’s got an impressive fan base and has headlined a number of huge pay-per-view events.
Perhaps it was foreshadowing when he switched his name to Big Show, but the wrestler has appeared in major films and television shows such as "The Waterboy," "Jingle All the Way," "Psych," and "Burn Notice." He is said to have accumulated a net worth of around $20 million.

Lita, born Amy Christine Dumas, started her professional wrestling career in Mexico, using the stage name Angelica. She moved back to the United States and signed with the WWE in 2000, where she became a four-time champion over the course of her six-year-long career with the organization. In 2006, she left to pursue her dreams of being a rock star, which started with launching her band, The Luchagors, and she stayed with them until 2014.
The former wrestler has appeared on several different television shows, including "Dark Angel," "Headbangers Ball," and "Fear Factor." She’s also been turned into a character for dozens of WWE video games, like "WWF No Mercy," "WWF SmackDown 2: Know Your Role," "WWF SmackDown: Just Bring It," and "WWF Raw." Dumas is reportedly a vegan and animal welfare activist and has even started her own non-profit organization called A.D.O.R.E (Amy Dumas Operation Rescue and Education). She is also back with the WWE working as a producer.
The Great Khali
Net Worth: $15M
The Great Khali is known for being a real-life giant, towering over the rest of us puny humans at a whopping 7 feet tall. But his height isn’t the only thing that made him (understandably) feared in the ring. If the ex-wrestler climbed up on the ropes and threw himself on top of you – you had better brace yourself for about 350 pounds of rage to flatten you into a pancake on the mat. Before Khali went into the WWE, he terrified perps working as a police officer.
The wrestler, born Dalip Singh Rana, made his WWE debut in 2006 in an epic SmackDown and retired in 2014. Shockingly enough, before he fully retired, he left temporarily due to an injury to his head that occurred in the ring, but he surprised everyone when he was back just days later to take on three other wrestlers in a tag team match. These days, he teaches future stars of the sport in a school that he launched himself called Continental Wrestling Entertainment. But it seems as though training others gave him the itch to get back in the ring himself, as he did just that in 2017 when he showed up to the Battleground to throw down with Jinder Mahal.
