The wealth of Jennifer McDaniel
In mid-2020, Jennifer McDaniel’s net worth is estimated to be over $4 million, partly earned through work as a makeup artist.
Most of her wealth probably comes from being the wife of one of the most famous professional wrestlers in history – Hulk Hogan has an estimated net worth of over $25 million.
Life and controversial relationship
While not many details are available about Jennifer’s life before she met Hogan, she is known to have worked as a makeup artist before. The two started their relationship sometime in 2008 and it immediately caught the attention of the media and paparazzi. Hogan did not hide her from the public, as she appeared with him on vacations, shopping trips and the like.
This got a lot of attention because at that time he was still dealing with the divorce case from his first wife Linda Claridge, to whom he was married for about 26 years, from whom they had two children. The divorce ended when Claridge was given a share of his wealth and equal custody of their children. Jennifer and Hogan continued dating for two years before he proposed to her, which led to the two having an intimate ceremony in Clearwater, Florida in the backyard of his home. The wedding was attended by close friends and family, including his two children. The wedding even had a bit of a scene, when one of the guards in the area fought a paparazzi trying to get in to hopefully get a snapshot of the wedding.
Life since marriage
One of the other things that caused controversy in McDaniel’s relationship with Hogan is their age difference. She is 20 years younger than her husband, and with her background, many believed that she was only dating him for the money, and was not interested in the retired wrestler. This turned out to be wrong as the two have stayed together in their marriage without much trouble. She even has a tattoo with his name Terry on her right wrist. They are both fitness enthusiasts and often spend their time in the Fitness center together.
Just two years into their marriage, trouble struck again when Hogan got involved in sex scandal with Heather Clem, his friend’s wife. The sex tape released by the media outlet Gawker sparked a lengthy lawsuit that saw the company go bankrupt. She also stayed with him after the shooting of Hogan having a racially insensitive outburst, released online. The tape caused Hogan to lie still for a long time, before later apologizing for his actions.
Husband – Hulk Hogan
Hulk is of very mixed Italian, Scottish, Panamanian and French descent.
He was born in Augusta, Georgia, and his family later settled in Port Tampa, Florida. At a young age, he aspired to become a professional baseball player, until an injury ended his hopes in that direction. Growing up, he followed the world of professional wrestling and idolized names like Dusty Rhodes and superstar Billy Graham.
He initially had no intention of becoming a wrestler, but first working as a musician and playing bass guitar for several rock bands in Florida. He was a student at the University of South Florida, although he dropped out to fully pursue a music career. He became somewhat popular in Tampa Bay because of his work with the band Ruckus, and it was during his time there that he met professional wrestlers Jack and Gerald Brisco. The two later invited him to train, as he possessed the physique to make it in the industry.
In 1976 he tried professional wrestling, as he was already interested in it, and eventually quit his music job to train full time.
The Success of Hulk Hogan
While Hogan started wrestling in the 1970s, he didn’t gain much attention until the 1980s when he signed with World Wrestling Federation (WWF), which would later become World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). He joined the company during the professional wrestling boom of the 1980s and his all-American personality became a hit with many viewers. He headlined the company’s first nine WrestleManias and won the championship five times, initially holding the record for longest championship reign in the company, and eventually surpassing it.
In the 1990s, he signed with WWF rival World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and continued to set records. He morphed into his villainous Hollywood Hulk Hogan persona there, as part of the New World Order (NWO), and at the time was a major factor in the ratings war between WCW and WWF. He eventually completed his career in WWE and was inducted as a Hall of Famer in 2005. After retirement, he was more focused on his career as a television personality and actor. He has appeared in several commercials and starred in several films, including “Hogan Knows Best” and “Mr. Babysitter”.
Not many details are known about Jennifer’s past before she met Hogan, although Hogan had a more public life. He was formerly married to Linda Claridge, who would become a television personality thanks to the reality show “Hogan Knows Best”, which involved his family at the time. He is said to have had numerous affairs during the marriage, which later surfaced, leading to the duo’s divorce. He lost about 70% of their assets after the divorce and even considered suicide. He met McDaniel in 2008 and they got engaged a year later, leading to their… wedding. The two share the Christian faith.
