Top 10 Richest Wrestlers

Is it any wonder that most wrestlers end up or lead double lives as actors? After all, what wrestling fans usually see inside the ring is just acting. The blood and gore, the gut-wrenching growls and screams, the silly nicknames, costumes and speeches, the super dumb referees – it’s theatrics at its best.  Oh, but the wrestlers’ huge pay, beautiful mansions and luxury cars are very real!
