After purchasing the business from his father, Vince turned WWE into a billion-dollar company in just a few decades, and thanks to him, pro-wrestling is a full-time profession for most wrestlers.

Most of Vince’s wealth comes from WWE, which hauls in at least $1 billion of business every year.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump is the only billionaire president in the history of the United States. Trump started a real estate business after getting a small loan of a million dollars from his father.

However, rather than real estate, most of Trump’s wealth comes from his non-real estate business.
