Hulk Hogan Net Worth
But How Did He Make His Money?

The one thing that’s well-known about ultra high net worth individuals (UHNWs) – the folks worth at least $30 million USD – is that virtually ALL of them have some part of their fortune in real estate.

Many of the more famous rich people and “celebrity entrepreneurs” actually got their start in real estate. And that’s great for them! Not so much for us…

See, more millionaires are created during recessions than any other part of the economic cycle. Which is cool, except the last real recession was 2008, when real estate prices were in the tank and you could buy a whole neighborhood with $100,000.

Now, though, real estate prices are through the roof, and interest rates are skyrocketing too. So how does the everyday person start building a massive net worth in an economy like this one?

Have you considered Digital Real Estate?

The internet’s been around for decades, but the possibility of actually owning high-value pieces of property ON the internet is fairly new.

In other words, it’s a wide open playing field…but it won’t stay that way forever.

Here’s a quick summary of how Digital Real Estate works:

You invest a little money (maybe around $100) to either purchase or build a piece of “land” on the internet.

You specifically place this “land” in a high-traffic area, where lots of people pass through (just like traditional real estate, it’s all about Location, Location, Location).

The folks who pass through your “land” all happen to be looking for a specific product or service, so you “rent” your land to a business owner who happens to offer that product or service.

The business owner pays you $500 to $2,000 a month to “rent” your Digital Real Estate, because it helps them connect with their ideal customers.

Think of it like buying a strip mall, or an office space, just on the internet, for WAAAAYYY less money and headache.

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, when up to 30 million people signed up for WWF pay-per-view events like WrestleMania, Hulk Hogan was at the top of his game.

Hulk Hogan started his professional wrestling career in 1977. He took part in a championship wrestling match for the CWF in Fort Myers, Florida, and later became “The Super Destroyer.”

After a local TV host compared Hulk Hogan to Incredible Hulk star Lou Ferigno, the “Hulkster” began to take shape.

However, he didn’t start using the name “Hogan” until he joined forces with the owner and promoter of the World Wrestling Federation, Vince McMahon, in 1979.

The following year, Hulk Hogan started wrestling in New Japan Pro-Wrestling while still with the WWF. The Japanese wrestling fans there gave him the nickname “Ichiban,” which means “Number One.”

In 1983, when McMahon’s son took over the company, he wanted Hulk Hogan to be the face of the company. It worked, and soon “Hulkamania” became a worldwide pop culture trend that lasted into the 21st century.

In the 80s and 90s, Hulk Hogan made several attempts to make it in Hollywood. Hogan appeared in his first movie role as Thunderlips in “Rocky III” in 1982. He was also in films like “No Holds Barred,” “Suburban Commando,” and “Mr. Nanny.”

From 1993 to 1995, he was also the star of the TV show Thunder in Paradise. About a decade later, Hulk Hogan succumbed to the trend of celebrity reality television with the VH1 series “Hogan Knows Best,” featuring him and his family.
