What Was Mike Wolfe Net Worth?
Mike Wolfe’s net worth has not been revealed yet. However, the main source of his income was powerlifting.
He began training in high school during football season, but it was ineffective. After graduating from high school, he took a year off before resuming his training in 1994.
In the mid-1990s, he competed at the state level and won four consecutive competitions. In 1997, he began bodybuilding, lost a lot of weight, and came close to competing on stage, but never did.
He stopped lifting for two years around that period. So he started playing tournament paintball and eventually became the captain of an amateur squad.
The bug got him again in late 2002 when his brother-in-law asked Mike to show him some weightlifting techniques. Since that day, the powerlifter has never looked back and has achieved enormous success. He began his training with Lou and George Halbert at Westside a little over a year ago.
