“I am the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be.” This is the famous catchphrase of none other than famous wrestling legend “The Hitman,” or Bret Hart as you might know him. Considered to be one of the greatest wrestlers of all-time, Hitman’s quote epitomizes what wrestling is all about – the grit, the showmanship, the power, and of course – the attitude.
Say what you will about modern-day wrestling, the characters we all know and love, such The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Hulk Hogan – all have an undeniable swagger to them, and they are more than happy to put it on display for viewers to see. It’s this type of attitude that enabled them to get where they are today – to perform in front of millions of viewers all over the world, then to broaden their career horizons into other areas on television, and finally… to buy the luxurious houses they’ve worked their whole lives to live in.
Like all forms of pop culture, whether it be sports, music, or even video gamers – they all are a true reflection of our times. The world of wrestling is a mix between sports, theater, and music all rolled up into a massive form of entertainment that manages to get so many people in the world worked up when their favorite wrestlers grace their screens.
This is the reason why they are able to purchase such wonderful houses – they do a true service for the wrestling fans of the world. Anyone who has ever caught the “wrestling bug” knows exactly what it’s like when a showdown you’ve been highly anticipating delivers exactly what you were expecting, and a lot more. To do what these wrestlers do night in and night out is far from easy, and its the reason they are held in such high regard.
For this reason, these wrestlers have been able to acquire extremely high level salaries that have enabled them to buy some really ostentatious houses. Whether it’s the fancy Beverly Hills home of Stacy Keibler, or whether its the house bought by WWE power couple John Cena and Nikki Bella, you can be sure that these superstars made sure to purchase the goods. Many of these homes are quite expensive, and we think you’ll definitely want to see their breathtaking beauty – so sit back, relax, and join us as we travel from mansion to mansion and see where these wrestling stars live.
One of the most exciting wrestlers to ever grace our screens, Randy Orton is rooted in a family of great wrestlers. His father “Cowboy” Bob Orton, uncle Randal “Barry O.” Orton, and grandfather Bob Orton Sr. were all professional wrestlers in their day, and they offered Randy the mentoring he needed to be the best performer he could be in the wrestling scene. By the time the world was screaming his name, the big bucks started rolling in – allowing him to buy this $1.25 million Missouri mansion.
As biblical as his stage name sounds, Chris Jericho’s real name is Christopher Keith Irvine, and not only is he one of wrestling’s big names, he is also a well-known musician. At the current moment, he is signed to the WWE and the New Japan Pro-Wrestling League. Taking part in multiple leagues not only gives him more opportunities to showcase his talent, but also grants him more money. It’s smart decisions like this that eventually allowed him to purchase comfortable homes like the one you see here.
Like many of the other cats on this list, Mr. Big Show has benefited from a nice lengthy WWE career, a big chunk of his popularity mainly in thanks to his gargantuan size. Starting around the new millenium and wrapping up very recently, in 2017, he actually recently matched up against former NBA player Shaquille O’Neal. He bought this luxurious house that you see here off of his wrestling peer The Undertaker, for around $700,000.
The Miz and Maryse
A real estate purchase steeped in showmanship and beauty, while it’s certainly fun to talk about everyone else, it becomes doubly interesting when it’s the house of a power couple like The Miz and Maryse. The Miz is obviously known for his legendary work in the ring, and Maryse is known for her wrestling as well as her work as an actress and a model. Add their two salaries together and you can’t imagine that they would have a hard time finding a beautiful house to buy.
When Goldberg returned to the WWE after a long hiatus, it certainly wasn’t for the money – he already had plenty of that saved up from his initial stint as a wrestler, earning up to $10 million. We know he had plenty of money saved up, so clearly his return was because of his passion for the big stage, and the overall sport of wrestling. That being said, the extra money he earned certainly didn’t deter him from buying this deluxe California mansion you see here.
CM Punk and AJ Lee – Inside the house
We’ve been talking a lot about wrestlers who like to diversify in the world of entertainment, and CM Punk is certainly one of those – recently, he’s been pursuing a career as a Mixed Martial Arts fighter. In addition, his current wife, AJ Lee, is also a very known lady in the wrestling scene, and she certainly has done a good job making a name for herself. Here is a cool, edgy home that they like to kick back in after a long day’s work.
Brock Lesnar and Sable
Here is another wrestling couple that could rival the best around, the formidable Brock Lesnar and Sable. Lesnar is not only known for his appearance in the wrestling arena, but also for his success as a UFC fighter. For this reason, he is worth up to $18 million, and it allowed him to buy the beautiful Minneapolis home you see here for a little under $800,000, where he lives with fellow retired wrestler and model Sable.
Considered to be one of the biggest wrestling fan favorites of all time, Kurt Angle was a huge television entertainment persona as well as a talent in the ring. But let’s not downplay how talented he was, because Angle actually competed in the 1996 world Olympics and even won a gold medal. This Pennsylvania home that he bought for himself is obviously very beautiful, but its $649,900 price actually isn’t that much in relation to how much he’s worth – around $20 million.
Stone Cold Steve Austin
There are many eras in the wrestling, and one of the most popular eras to ever arise was the “Attitude Era.” There were many classic wrestling pioneers that were a big part of its fruition, and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin was one of them. The impact he had on the wrestling community is still felt by many, and it goes without saying that he would have been paid very well for it – well enough for him to buy this 2,000 acre Texas ranch.
Andre The Giant
Such a big part of wrestling is having a good stage persona, and when the seven foot four Andre the Giant came onto the scene, people had no confusion whatsoever as to why that was his nickname. But don’t let his somewhat daunting size fool you – people have actually come out and said that he is a truly gentle and beloved man. Although he’s sadly no longer with us, during his life he was very successful and was able to buy a house that was proportion to how big he was.
We have already began to discuss famous wrestlers that have dabbled in other fields outside of the WWE, and Bautista is a great example of one who ran all the way with it. This is because for many non-wrestling fans, Bautista is known by many for his prominent appearance in the Marvel film Guardians of the Galaxy alongside actor Chris Pratt. These type of big movie contracts allow him to spread his wings in the real estate department, as you can see in this picture of his extravagant home.
One of the biggest wrestling names of all-time is none other than Hulk Hogan, a man whose influence on the WWE is truly unique. The Hulk and his iconic blond handlebar mustache can be seen gracing the shores of Clearwater Beach, where he lives in his $3 million home with his wife Jennifer. He took a long break from wrestling and it looks like he’s enjoying the life of settling down, but you know – the Hulk could always return when we least expect it.
One of the best things about the world of wrestling is that beyond the moves, the catchphrases, and the wrestlers themselves, you have a giant team of officials that are behind the whole production of it, passionately dedicating themselves to make sure the viewer’s experience is nothing less than 100% mind blowing. The person in charge of all of these aspects is none other than WWE CEO Vince McMahon – and the pay is pretty good, which allowed him to buy the beautiful home you see here.
Daniel Bryan & Brie Bella
Many people are big fans of the Bella sisters, and interestingly enough, both of them married fellow famous wrestlers. Brie went ahead and fell for WWE star Daniel Bryan, who rose to the forefront of wrestling popularity around year 2014. The two of them are very happy together, and much of their love life is documented on the reality show Total Divas. You know what else is documented on it? Bella and Bryan’s beautiful home in Phoenix, Arizona.
Before we say anything, how unique is R-Truth’s nickname? We truly believe it to be one of the all time greatest. Who knows, maybe his stage name is a contributing factor that helped him stick around the WWE for so long – after all, this is an entertainment business. He brings a much needed comedic approach to his stage persona, and he is truly beloved by many fans. His North Carolina home is worth around $750,000, a place with a lot of natural beauty and a serene atmosphere.
Mark Henry is another example of a wrestler who has been going at it strong for a very long time, all the way since 1996 in fact. He actually is among the top ranked wealthiest wrestlers alive today, and it just goes to just what happens when you stick around. Henry has taken the money that he’s earned from wrestling and used some of it to live comfortably in a gorgeous home in Austin, Texas, where he can relax himself when he isn’t preparing for a match.
John Cena and Nikki Bella
We talked before about the Bella sisters, and how they both married fellow wrestlers – well now it’s time to talk about how famous wrestler Nikki Bella married one of the most famous wrestlers out there – John Cena. In fact, not only is John Cena very successful for his work in the WWE, but he has done a lot of notable work as an actor, appearing in the Apatow film Trainwreck. The two have a cute love story, and they’re living happily ever after in their lavish Florida home.
The Rock – First house
It wouldn’t be a complete list of wrestlers without Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. To be honest, even if his pad wasn’t that good, we would still put him on this list just because his name is so synonymous with wrestling that it wouldn’t be right to leave him out. Possibly the most famous wrestler of all time, most likely in thanks to his success an actor, The Rock is also one of the richest wrestlers of all time, allowing him to purchase the extravagant home you see here.
The Rock – Second house
One of the benefits to being arguably the best wrestler in the world, or at least the most famous and successful one, is that even after you’ve bought one top notch house, you are sometimes able to buy yet another one. Indeed, the “Scorpion King” himself who also starred in The Rundown, an action film with Christopher Walken, has been the owner of multiple sweet houses, and the one you see here is just as nice as the last one, if that’s possible.
Stephanie McMahon and Triple H
We have many homes on this list that are owned by not just one wrestler, but a wrestling couple that have combined forces to live together. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are a great example that – Triple H being the dominating wrestling legend that he is, and McMahon being the WWE chief brand officer whose entire family is also connected to the league. When you combine their two salaries, great things can be done, and this giant house is a great example.
This man has the stage name of Ric Flair, but also has another nickname – Nature Boy. Flair was a truly prominent wrestler in the 1980s, and has enjoyed a successful 40 year career. Some people consider him to be one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, and for this reason, it makes sense that he didn’t walk away from the old deal empty handed. On the contrary, Nature Boy was able to buy himself a beautiful home for him to comfortably retire in.
Bret Hart – Inside the house
Bret Hart is certainly a good stage name, but fans took it to another level when they started calling him “The Hitman”. But if you saw him perform in the ring, you would know the exact reason why people chose this nickname – the man is simply menacing, and Sky Sports even declared him to be “one of, if not the greatest ever, to have graced the squared circle.” His impressive stature on stage were enough to make him quite rich, and you can see in this picture.
Mr. Wade Barrett never messed around when it came to the world of entertainment wrestling, because he actually came from a slightly different background than most of his contemporaries. Wade was actually formerly a bare-knuckle boxer, so when he joined the WWE, people knew he wasn’t just someone that they could easily push around. Eventually, his success in the WWE grew, and he even did some work as an actor as well. Now, like many of his peers, he’s enjoying a rich and famous lifestyle that many people dream of.
When you have a stage such as the WWE, you are bound to attract the best wrestlers in the entire world, and that includes athletes from all kinds of countries. In this case, we are talking about Sheamus, an Irishman who truly made a strong impact in the wrestling world ever since he joined. In addition to his talent as a wrestler, Sheamus is also a actor (what else is knew), and this has only added to his popularity, as well as his wealth.
In an industry that is so filled to the brim with amazing male talent, we would hate to forget some of the most notable women wrestlers, but to be honest – there’s no way we could forget someone like Ronda Rousey. This professional wrestler, who is also an MMA fighter, is truly the real deal when it comes to the idea of girl power. Currently signed to the Raw brand, Rousey has enjoyed quite the successful career, buying for herself a fancy house that overlooks a cliff.
There have been many impressive wrestling careers, and one of the things that makes a career noteworthy isn’t just the quality of the wrestler’s time, but also the quantity. Kane is an example of a wrestler who’s longevity in the WWE truly took itself on a long and fruitful journey, starting in 1995 and still currently performing for them. His success has certainly brought him financial security, as you can see in this picture of his $800,000 Tennessee home.
The Undertaker was fortunate enough to enjoy a long and successful career as a wrestler, and since then he has allowed himself to kick back in Austin, Texas, where his current home resides. He lives there with his wife, Michelle McCool, who also happens to be a former member of the WWE. His antics on the wrestling stage were truly entertaining, amassing him a solid fortune and enabling him to buy this steel roofed house with a pool in the middle.
There are many different caveats of a wrestler’s career that may make their time in the ring that much more valuable. One of these attributes is longevity – some athletes are super talented but fall by the wayside after a couple of years on the job. Alicia Fox, as you might have guessed, is not one of those people. She’s always been a great wrestler, but what’s extra amazing about her is the fact that she’s been with the WWE longer than any other female ever – not a bad résumé, huh?
The Rock – Inside the house
We will now dig a tiny bit deeper into the different beauties you can find in The Rock’s home. As you can see here, if you go into the backyard, it looks less like a backyard, and more like a five star hotel. With a fancy cutting edge pool that overlooks a magnificent landscape, it’s relaxing energy probably sets the tone perfectly when you might want to go back inside and watch a movie in the home theater.
John Cena and Nikki Bella – Inside the house
Another house that has a truly extraordinary interior in the home of John Cena and Nikki Bella. As you can see in the left picture, there is a very antique fashioned grand entrance, with a black and white modern twist. In the right picture, we’ve got one of the nicest dens we’ve ever seen. Again, it’s a strong balance between an old fashioned royal theme, and a refurbished element that lets you know that we’re actually in the 21st century.
Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella – Inside the house
Now this picture is beautiful for reasons that extend beyond the obvious superficial beauty we tend to come to expect from houses that celebrities own. The inside of Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella’s house may not be super flashy, but it has a homey-ness to it that is traditional for most modern families. But what we love most about this picture is that they both look so happy – and they seem to really love their dog too.
Stone Cold Steve Austin – Inside the house
Here we have the inside the house segment of none other than Stone Cold Steve Austin, and we proud to announce that he, like his peers, delivered the goods as well. If you were to walk into his house, you’d have the opportunity to check out this lavish backyard, a traditional yet very cutting edge sitting area, with wooden lawn chairs, stone tiled floors, and a sweet barbeque – probably one that gets used fairly often when there are family and friends over.
The Miz and Maryse – Inside the house
Now this is a very unique picture of an inside look of the house of wrestlings stars the Miz and his wife Maryse. The reason it’s unique is because at first glance it appears to be a backyard, but it also kind of looks like a courtyard of some sorts. It’s almost like a outside den, or and outdoor hallway that mixes the elements of fresh air and coziness – something that we never even knew was possible, but this house seems to have pulled it off.
One of the most popular female wrestlers of all time, Trish Stratus made her original wrestling debut as a villain, but with a sultry twist. It was this role that stuck with her stage persona for years to come, and it enabled to garner quite the following amongst the masses. Dubbed “Diva of the Decade”, Stratus never messed around when it came to meeting the needs of her viewers, and this is why she is one of the best, and one of the richest wrestlers as well.
Stacy Keibler was such an appealing character to watch that people couldn’t help but become fans of wrestling, if they weren’t before. Given the title “The Legs of WWE” due to her strikingly tall and supremely slender build, Keibler was able to branch out into other fields of entertainment outside of just wrestling. As a model and an actor, Stacy was financially stable enough to make the purchase of the beautiful Beverly Hills mansion you see in this picture.
Stacy Keibler – Inside the house
And now we have an insider’s look of what it’s like to be inside the house of Stacy Keibler. And although her WWE stage persona was always kind of on the raunchy side, it doesn’t surprise us that the interior look of her house here actually suits her well. From the edgy golden coffee table, to the traditional fireplace, to the majestic masterpiece of a clock on the wall, it looks like the perfect place for her and her family to settle down.
