There’s a lot of money to be made in wrestling, and the way for any guy or girl in the business to prove that they’ve “made it” is by showing off the collections of material possessions they’ve accumulated during their time with WWE or WCW during their biggest boom periods where million dollar contracts were handed out like advertisement flyers to whomever wanted to jump ship and make money. As a result of this, the talent went out and spent money. Multiple multi-million dollar houses were constructed or bought. Boats were purchased and anchored in some of Florida’s most beautiful harbors. Then there were the automobiles – even on television, the superstars couldn’t help but show off the fruit of their laboring for Ted Turner or Vince McMahon. At one point at the turn of the 21st century when the WWE first went public on the New York Stock Exchange, the argument can be made that McMahon’s biggest names were looked at in the same celebrity bracket as an NBA or NFL player.
A flashy automobile is a part of a wrestler’s look, even when he’s out of the ring. Alberto Del Rio’s WWE gimmick was initially based on showcasing a variety of luxury cars, indicating that his lifestyle provided such sumptuous living. The McMahons have rarely been seen on television arriving in anything other than a limousine. Granted, there are some wrestlers who choose to live within more standard means and opt for a more sensible mode of transportation, but as fans have seen on both WWE and other television programming, many of the WWE’s talent prefer to go big when they make their selections and that includes what they drive as well. Some wrestlers choose to collect luxury vehicles while others buy one beauty for display, but either way the proof is in the purchase – these guys have truly made it if they have one of these automobiles in their garage.

1 Eddie Guerrero's Low Rider
If a wrestling fan were to judge a car’s worth in memories, then the late Eddie Guerrero’s infamous low rider would be completely priceless. Many wrestlers used their vehicles as a part of their gimmick to get themselves over with the crowd, but Eddie’s low rider was a classic like no other and Eddie actually used his own customized Buick in many of his entrances to the ring. Much like Alberto Del Rio’s flashy entrances with Bentleys and Ferraris, though, not all of Eddie’s fancy customized low-riding vehicles featured in his WWE entrances were his own. Many of the cars were donated from local fans or auto shops. Watching Eddie’s entrance to the ring in his completely tricked-out ride, though, was a rich experience.
