18. Eric Bischoff: $12.5 million net worth
To think that there was once a time where the majority of WCW fans knew Eric Bischoff only as a television commentator. The man who was largely responsible for firing the opening shots of the “Monday Night Wars” was the Executive Producer of WCW television back in the 1990s, and he would become a heel authority figure who did occasionally step inside of the ring for matches. Bischoff worked as an on-air character for WWE following the demise of WCW, he has had gigs in other wrestling companies such as TNA Wrestling, and he has also authored an autobiography.
