It’s hard to filter through the noise of recent iterations, but I’m pretty sure the reason he wrestled in the first place was for the prize money to help May and Ben pay rentNot really. He was never really portrayed as having grown up poverty stricken or anything. Most of his issues are a result of him having to manage both personas and the negative toll it takes on his work/life balance moreso than growing up poor or anything like that. That was never really a part of the character.
