The company has more than 550 live shows a year, and Wrestlemania 35 was attended by around 82,265 fans and generated around $16.9 million in revenue.

With Stephanie McMahon at the top, WWE has been one of the leaders in promoting and revolutionizing women in Sports Entertainment.

Shane McMahon has a net value of around $35M. He owns almost 2% of the WWE, but a major part of Shane’s net worth comes not from the WWE, but rather from business ventures outside the company.
