If you're looking to start a little, mom and pop, family run business that you can one day pass on to your children, might I suggest opening up your own ridiculously successful multimillion dollar wrestling organization. F4Wonline.com recently revealed the 2016 salary details for the four members of the McMahon family namely Vince McMahon, his son Shane McMahon, daughter Stephanie McMahon and son-in-law Triple H.
WWE Chairman Vince McMahon hasn’t been seen inside a WWE ring since he gave Shane and Stephanie joint control over Raw at Payback last year, but the Boss is reportedly still at nearly every taping and remains in 100% creative control over the main roster.
Meanwhile, ‘Shane-o-Mac’ and his sister continue to be a regular feature on WWE television in their roles as Commissioner of SmackDown Live and Raw respectively. Triple H, too, is seen quite often on RAW as the COO of WWE, as well as on NXT posing with anyone who wins a Championship. The Game has also spent a several months last year as the WWE Champion when he won the 2017 Royal Rumble.
So, how much did all these roles pocket the McMahon fam? As reported by F4Wonline.com, Stephanie McMahon earned $2,000,000 in her roles as an executive and a performer in 2016. Her brother, Shane McMahon, surprisingly did even better in his comeback role, as he managed to gross a figure of $2,150,000. Besides taking on the televised authority figure role, Shane also wrestled at Survivor Series and WrestleMania; nearly killing himself at both.
Triple H earned a whopping $3,993,417 in the year 2016. It should come as no surprise that Vince McMahon is the highest earning member of the McMahon family having drawn a huge salary of $5,348,624 last year; which really isn't quite as much as one might think it would be.
