Triple H, or Paul Michele Levesque, is a big player in the world of pro wrestling. Not only because he’s a beast in the ring, but also because he happened to marry into the McMahon empire. Before the 5-time Intercontinental Champion tied the knot with his new wife, Stephanie, in 2003, he was married to (late) fellow former wrestler, Chyna, who passed away in 2016. H’s talent and drive pushed him to pursue additional career ventures alongside his WWE duties, such as acting.
Levesque was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2019, as a part of the “Generation X Stable,” which he co-founded in the early ’90s. Today, he acts as the Executive VP of Talent, Live Events, and Creative for the company. He enjoys a salary of over $1M per year, which he uses to take care of his wife and their three daughters. Triple H also owns over $1M in stock in the WWE. The couple started their own charitable organization dedicated to curing cancer. Whenever he gets the chance, Levesque goes to see his favorite band, Motörhead, perform.
Vince McMahon Is Running the Show
You don’t have to be a fan of wrestling to recognize Vince McMahon. The 74-year-old has a current net worth of around $3 billion, due to his being involved in several aspects of the entertainment world. McMahon is the head honcho that oversees the entirety of the WWE, where he has been since 1989.
Aside from his business within the WWE, McMahon also helped launch the World Bodybuilding Federation, and in 2017, he started his own production company, Alpha Entertainment. Unfortunately, he has been wrapped up in numerous sexual harassment (and other) claims over the past several decades, most recently in 2006 when an attendant at a tanning salon accused him of groping and trying to force himself on her. McMahon has several mansions spread out across the country, including a $40 million home in Greenwich, Connecticut.
X-Pac, born as Sean Waltman, started his career as The Lightning Kid, and first signed with the WWF in 1993. Throughout that decade, however, he found himself struggling with substance abuse after a neck injury, which hindered his ability to get in the ring. Then, in 1998, he signed with the WWF under his new name, X-Pac. Waltman has remained very active within the WWE until early 2019.
In April of 2019, at WrestleMania 35, Waltman made the announcement that he would be performing in his final match that day. He did make sure to include some stipulations for WrestleMania and TakeOver matches. In 2016, the wrestler launched his own podcast to talk about what’s happening in the world of professional wrestling. Waltman is currently a single father and widower, due to the fact that his ex-wife and children’s mother passed away in 2018.

Then, he decided to try his hand at some different aspects of entertainment, like mainstream acting.
Goldberg appeared in a number of films and television shows, including 'The Longest Yard', 'The Celebrity Apprentice', and 'The Goldbergs', along with lending his voice to an episode of Seth MacFarlane’s hit show, 'Family Guy'.
