WWE superstars are well-known stars all over the world which could be why they earn so much money for being part of the company. Merchandise sales, as well as their flat rate of pay that they receive for being part of the company, are some of the ways that WWE stars make money. Many of them also start projects outside the company to make extra cash, from acting to writing books.
The likes of John Cena, Nikki Bella, Chris Jericho and even Dolph Ziggler are all examples of stars that have projects outside of WWE which has only added to their steady flow of revenue. This often allows them to enjoy some of the finer things in life.
When there is that much money coming in (regardless of how sensible wrestlers are with their income) some wrestlers will always want to spend it on the biggest house or the best car they can find so that they can show off on Instagram. Of course, there are also many WWE stars who care more about the business than their car so they don't bother to try and find the best, they just buy a car that will provide them with the transportation they need.
The following list looks at just 10 wrestlers who are able to drive some of the best-looking cars in the business as well as five who obviously aren't that bothered about what people think about their ride as long as it still does its job.
15 Expensive: The Rock
The Rock has become one of the best-known former wrestlers in the world over the past few years ever since he stepped into Hollywood and managed to make a career in the acting world. This has only continued to help boost his income ever since and has allowed him to buy many luxury cars. He loves his classic Chevrolet Chevelle SS, but he has way more than that.
The former World Champion is a fan of having his cars modified or customized, which could be why he was the perfect person to star in Fast and Furious, he currently owns a 2016 Ford F-150 Pickup Truck which was modified by California Custom Sport Trucks but he doesn't consider this one to be as great as his other super cars like the McLaren seen above.
14 Expensive: John Cena
Anyone who is a fan of John Cena will know that ever since he made his way to WWE he has been an avid collector of classic cars. Cena was even able to use one of his cars as part of his entrance at WrestleMania 22, but since then his collection has just managed to get bigger and bigger.
Right now it is reported that Cena owns 16 classic cars as well as a number of other vehicles, some of his favourite rides include a 1966 Dodge Hemi Charger, a 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and a 1969 COPO Chevrolet Camaro. Cena has shown off his house on Total Divas before so the WWE Universe are already aware that the former Champion likes to live the high life and his incredible car collection is just another factor in his impressive life outside of the company.
13 Beater: Natalya
Natalya has been a star of Total Divas since the show began back in 2013 and is widely considered to be one of the best pure female wrestlers that WWE has ever signed. Even though she is a huge star inside the ring, Natalya isn't someone who likes to be flashy outside of it.
Anyone who watches Total Divas will know that Natalya is someone who is smart with her money and prefers comfort over anything flashy, which is why she drives a 2011 Volkswagen CC which is currently worth less than $10,000. Maybe Natalya has had it since it was classed as new and if so that means she has had it for seven years and is definitely due an upgrade. She won the SmackDown Women's Championship for the first time last year, surely that should have prompted her to get a car like a Champion too.
12 Expensive: Seth Rollins
Seth Rollins has only been part of WWE's main roster for five years, but he has managed to climb his way up through the ranks to already be a former two time World Champion.
Rollins has obviously been on a sweet deal with WWE for the past few years and since he was part of The Authority a few years ago, he needed to be seen arriving for work in style. Rollins drives a Lamborghini Aventador and has been spotted at WWE events by a number of fans in recent years. He also owns his own wrestling school back in Davenport, Iowa, which allows him to remain in the same state that he grew up in since his mother is the one who looks after the school when he is travelling with WWE.
11 Expensive: Randy Orton
The Legend Killer has gone through a number of different personality changes in WWE over the past decade and he has made a lot of money from doing so. Even though John Cena is the one who takes all the headlines, Orton was the man by his side pushing him to the top for most of his career.
Being at the top of the company has allowed Orton to afford some of the more finer things in life, which includes buying a state of the art, one of a kind Hummer H2 DUB. This is something that Orton had upgraded to his specific requirements and has become one of the most envied rides of all the WWE roster. It definitely looks like the kind of car a World Champion should drive through.
10 Beater: Shinsuke Nakamura
Shinsuke Nakamura may be this year's Royal Rumble winner and someone who is set to headline his first WrestleMania, but he isn't someone who cars about owning a flashy car. Unlike many of his peers, Nakamura is happy with his modest £10k Mazda which he feels does the job it needs to do.
Nakamura has always been a star who cares more about his in-ring ability than his lifestyle outside of the company and the fact that WWE stars often use rental cars rather than their own cars when they are on the road means that he obviously doesn't want to spend a lot of money on a car he will never use. Maybe Nakamura is actually being quite smart about this, in the future, he will have a lot more money when he leaves the business, which will be quite handy.
9 Expensive: Triple H
Of course, Triple H finds himself in the position where he has a number of cars in his collection right now. He has been a prominent figure on WWE TV for more than two decades and it seems that in that time he has been able to rise through the company and make himself quite a decent Net Worth.
The WWE COO has quite an extensive car collection right now which includes a Cadillac Escalade ESV, a BMW 7 Series 760LI and a Mercedes - Benz SL - Class. It seems that since Triple H will be the boss one day, he wants to ensure that he always arrives in style since it's quite obvious that his collection is only going to continue to grow over the next few years as he continues to make the money to support it.
8 Expensive: Rey Mysterio
There are a number of WWE Superstars both past and present who like to customise and modify the cars that they own, but none more so than former World Champion Rey Mysterio, who owns quite an enviable car and bike collection.
Rey became good friends with former WWE star Chuck Palumbo and he has helped Rey to customize many of his cars throughout his career. It is Rey's modified Toyota Tundra that is probably the one that gets him the most attention though since this is the one he uses as his everyday car. Even though he is someone who also enjoys going out on his bikes which have also become CP customs, and include a 2004 Harley-Davidson Nightster which he has been seen showing off on Youtube from much earlier in his career.
7 Beater: Mickie James
Mickie James returned to WWE last year as a mother and a wife and while the women's locker room has recently been bullying her for the fact that she is the oldest active female wrestler in the company, they should have aimed many of these insults at her taste in cars.
Since she's become a mother it seems that Mickie has decided that safety is the best thing and even though she was in an accident when she was rear-ended by someone on their cell phone on New Years Eve back in 2010, Mickie has stuck with her beaten up old Mercedes (yes, expensive, but old!) and not decided to get a new one for a number of years. Hopefully, she will decide to upgrade it in the coming months.
6 Expensive: Stone Cold Steve Austin
Of course, Stone Cold Steve Austin owns a monster truck, much like Alundra Blayze, he seems like the kind of star who would drive around the streets in one and think nothing of it. Austin was seen on WWE TV a number of times throughout the Attitude Era driving his Monster Truck and showing off his obvious skills when it comes to choosing a car.
These days it makes much less sense for him to be seen driving around in the truck which is why it is now on Austin's Broken Skull Ranch along with a number of his other cars which include a 1995 Ford Bronco, 1988 Dodge Ramcharger and a 2016 Range Rover. Austin also has a Chevrolet that he brought back in 2003 that he admitted he has a sentimental connection to.
5 Expensive: Bill Goldberg
Goldberg is known as a WCW legend and only recently returned to the WWE after more than a decade away from the ring, to prove that he still had what it takes to become Universal Champion. Bill definitely has a steady stream of income which helps to fund his car collection.
Bill's pride and joy is a 1970 Ford Superboss 429 Mustang, something that he often brags about owning since it is the only automatic 429 to exist. Goldberg certainly knows about his cars and has managed to create quite the collection over the past few years, which now include a number of classic cars as well as a 1959 Chevrolet Biscayne and a 1965 Shelby Cobra. It seems that Goldberg isn't the sort of man who looks at the newly released cars to pick out his new ride, he is someone who loves the classics.
4 Beater: Matt Hardy
Considering Matt Hardy is someone who has been in the wrestling business for a number of years, he isn't someone who likes to show off outside of the ring. Matt is now a husband and father of two and it is reported that his car collection includes a yellow Corvette and a modest black Cadillac Escalade.
There are still a number of stars who don't feel that the business is all about the cars that you drive. Now that Hardy has two children that he also has to drive around, he has decided that his cars should be all about safety rather than swag right now. Hardy is someone who's quite smart so he obviously knows what he's doing with his cars.
3 Expensive: Batista
Much like The Rock, Batista has been able to make the switch over to the acting world as well in recent years as the star of Guardians of the Galaxy. The former World Champion has returned to WWE briefly but he has decided that a career in the acting world has become his best option.
The income certainly seems to be enough to support his growing car collection. Batista loves the colour white so much that everything in his collection matches, this includes a Mercedes SL 500, a Lamborghini Murcielago, a Hummer H2 and BMW 754 LI which Batista had fully customized to his own requirements. There is a reason that The Animal doesn't want to return to WWE since he is earning enough without having to take bumps.
2 Expensive: Chuck Palumbo
Chuck Palumbo will be remembered by many WWE fans as the star who used to come to the ring riding a motorbike but since his career in the squared circle came to an end a few years ago he has begun making a living out of customizing bikes and cars.
Palumbo has already been mentioned on this list for the work he did on Rey Mysterio's car collection, but the star himself has quite a collection of cars of his own that he has been able to customize to his own specifications. His favourite car is obviously his 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and who can blame him, it's a car that any man would be proud to own and let's be honest, Chuck knows more about cars than any other star so his seal of approval is worth quite a lot.
1 Beater: Dean Ambrose
Dean Ambrose is known for being a very strange WWE star. After all, his gimmick is that of a guy who becomes easily unhinged. He's known as the lunatic fringe, but when it comes to his spending on cars, he is anything but crazy.
Just look at the above photo of him getting into a very affordable Hyundai SUV. While he obviously does his share of car rentals while on the road, he always seems to pick whatever is most sensible. This is directly in line with his character, since it has been said that Dean is actually very frugal. He knows that his career won't last forever so he is trying to keep as much money as he can.
