When Mike Tyson described Wayne Gretzky as “a very kind man” appeared on www.sportskeeda.com by Abhilasha Aditi.
Mike Tyson, the former world heavyweight champion, is known for his fearless attitude and his unmatched prowess in the boxing ring. However, outside of the boxing ring, Tyson is also known for his admiration for other athletes who have achieved similar success in their respective sports.
One athlete who captured Tyson’s admiration and respect is none other than NHL legend Wayne Gretzky.
Tyson first met Gretzky in Phoenix, Arizona, and was immediately struck by the NHL legend’s delightful and kind persona. Tyson was so impressed by Gretzky’s character that he publicly praised him, calling him “a very kind man.” This statement from Tyson was significant, as it revealed a side of Gretzky that is not often talked about in the media.
Tyson’s admiration for Gretzky is not just based on his character, but also on his incredible achievements in the world of ice hockey. Gretzky is widely considered to be the greatest hockey player of all time, having won four Stanley Cup championships and numerous individual awards. Tyson recognized the dedication and hard work that it took to achieve such greatness, and held Gretzky in high regard on account of it.
Interestingly, Tyson and Gretzky share a common interest in the sport of tennis. Both champions have daughters who are talented tennis players, and they often attend tennis tournaments together to cheer for them. This shared interest in tennis has brought Tyson and Gretzky even closer together, and we can expect to see more of their interactions in the future.
Wayne Gretzky’s net worth
Wayne Gretzky’s incredible achievements on the ice have earned him a net worth of $250 million. During his illustrious NHL career, Gretzky earned a total of $46 million in salary, a sum that pales in comparison to his endorsement deals.
Over the course of his playing career, Gretzky earned an additional $50 million in endorsements, which, when adjusted for inflation, brings his total earnings to around $150 million. Gretzky’s endorsement deals with companies such as Nike, Coca-Cola, and Upper Deck are testaments to his status as a cultural icon.
Gretzky has invested his earnings wisely in a diverse range of ventures, including sports team ownership, a vineyard, and real estate ventures. Gretzky has also co-owned a successful sports equipment line and a restaurant, both of which have contributed to his considerable net worth.
Gretzky purchased an ownership stake in the Hull Olympiques of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League for $175,000 CAD. Seven years later, he sold his stake for $550,000 CAD, a significant return on his initial investment. Gretzky also owns shares in the Phoenix Coyotes and the Edmonton Oilers, further cementing his status as a prominent figure in the world of hockey.
