When he was 24 years old, he got a golden opportunity to work for Jim Crocket Promotions that was generated by National Wrestling Alliance. According to this, till 1985, he would stay associated with them. In 1985, Ricky was fortunate enough to get a chance to join World Wrestling Federation. For the first time, he appeared in the pay-per-view thing in November 1985 at WWF The Wrestling Classic. It took place at Rosemont in Illinois. He got back to the National Wrestling Alliance on 21st January in the year 1989. Ricky got in a fight with Lex Luger and after being provoked by Lex, he asked for a no disqualification match. He could not make it through this match as he hit Lex with a chair. Again, owing to all these issues and a problem in the contract, it seemed that World Championship Wrestling would see no more of Ricky’s matched after that incident. He switched to National American Wrestling Association and New Japan Pro Wrestling. He also played a number of matches in WWF.
In the year 1991, Ricky took everyone by surprise when he made a comeback in World Championship Wrestling. He became part of the team with famous wrestler Dustin Rhodes by replacing Barry Windham who was seriously hurt. Their strong team won against Arn Anderson and Larry Zbyszko. World Tag Team Championship was won by the pair and Ricky officially became the proud owner of first title of this kind under the label of World Championship Wrestling.
His career took a U turn when he was fired by the president of WCW in the year 1994. That put a tragic end to their 20 years bond. Later he made an entry to WWE yet again and played several matches from 2005 to 2010. He even appeared in WWE video game in the year 2012. All this contributes to the net worth and salary of this wrestler.
