Rides have been an integral part of wrestling for many years now. As great wrestlers enter the arena, several of them get on their bikes and cars to make it clear that this is their domain. And it’s not all performance art either, many of the cars we’ve seen in WWE are actually cars owned by your favorite WWE wrestlers.
While wrestling fans have been treated to seeing some of these cars when watching wrestling matches, what’s more interesting are some of the cars that sit in the private garages of WWE Superstars. Hulk Hogan has a rather interesting collection of Dodge models of all types, John Cena has some of the rarest sports and muscle cars money can buy, and several wrestlers have monster trucks that look more like war machines. than cars.
ten Batista’s Eddie Guerrero Chevy Tribute
When Eddie Guerrero died in 2005, wrestling fans were shocked. In a tribute to his fallen comrade, Dave Batista once rode a game in a light blue 1964 Chevy Impala that Batista owns in real life.
The Imperials crest stood like a statue visible from the back seat and the car was painted with a portrait of Guerrero on the hood. Fans still rave about this car to this day, some even calling it a “work of art”.
9 John Cena’s Plymouth Road Runner Superbird
John Cena has quite a collection of cars and entire articles can (and have) been written about them. One of the centerpieces of his collection is his 1970 Plymouth Road Runner Super Bird. The Road Runner is a classic muscle car from their heyday and the car has many visual similarities to a Dodge Daytona.
But the Road Runner is a nice machine on its own. Its bright orange paintwork gives it the classic touch of the golden age of muscle cars, and its factory-attached spoiler is a rarity not seen in many other muscle cars.
8 Shamus’ original DeLorean
It may not be clear what car to expect to see the spunky Irish wrestler driving, but they probably weren’t expecting to see a DeLorean. Shamus owns and regularly shows this rare gem from the 80s.
DeLoreans are the brainchild of engineer John DeLorean, who left his job at General Motors to start his own car company. The cars were popularized by the movie back to the future but the hype didn’t keep the company afloat, and they went bankrupt in the 1980s. Shamus did manage to snatch one of the 6,500 Deloreans ever produced. Although they are slow cars with only 140 hp, a DeLorean can fetch up to $80,000 at auction.
7 Madusa’s Pink Monster Truck
madusa didn’t just buy his Monster Truck just to own it. No, this WWE Superstarlet has been an active participant in the monster truck circuit since she purchased this monster truck in 2004.
The truck uses a Ford F-150 body, a 540 cubic inch V8 engine and 66 inch wide tires. Medusa is also an incredibly skilled pilot and she pushes the truck to its limits every game. Want to see a monster truck do a backflip? Well, be sure to see Madusa the next time that big pink truck comes by.
6 “InCENArator” by John Cena
John Cena has so many cars he had to make this list at least twice. Not all of Cena’s cars would qualify as “weird” to most people. Aside from the rare gem that is his Road Runner, most of the cars in his collection are your standard muscle cars of a variety of years, makes and models (also a Jeep Wrangler he’s owned for the years 1980).
But this custom-built car, nicknamed “InCENArator,” has got to be his most eccentric purchase. This Highly customized Corvette C7 R uses a 5.5-liter V8 engine and 491 horsepower. Its custom bodywork and headlight installation are almost reminiscent of the Batmobile.
5 Rick Flair’s Chevy Camaro SS
This car makes the list not because it’s some quirky designed car or some rare gem sitting in the wrestler’s garage. No, it makes the list because the car is quite a contrast to the wrestler’s famously flashy stage presence.
Rick Flair, as his name suggests, had a flair for dramatic and flashy costumes used in his fights. Custom 2010 Camaro SS is rather attenuated, a modest-looking vehicle for such a flashy performer. That said, the car still has over 500 horsepower under the hood and has been painted a bright yellow to match the star’s famous shiny blonde hair.
4 Hulk Hogan’s Dodge Viper
Like John Cena, the 1980s WWE champion has an extensive collection of muscle cars, mostly Dodges. Probably the most famous is his 1994 Dodge Viper, which Hogan says has only done a few thousand miles to date.
Some car fanatics, however, weren’t thrilled when Hogan customized the car with a bright red and yellow paint job to match his wrestling colors. He also lined the interior with red leather and bright yellow trim. The car regularly makes the rounds at motor shows and exhibitions.
3 Hulk Hogan’s Dodge Ram SRT 10
Like we said, Hulk Hogan has a thing for the Dodge brand. This aptly named “super truck” produced by the company in the 2000s fits in pretty well with the muscle cars in the Hulk Hogan collection.
The SRT 10 moves thanks to a meaty V10 engine, the same type of engine that accompanies the Dodge Viper, Hogan’s most famous car. the The SRT 10 can reach over 500 horsepower and is a bit of a rare find as only 10,000 units were produced.
2 Pagani Huayra of Rock
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is arguably WWE’s most successful alum (his net worth is over $300 million, so one can imagine that with that amount of money available, one could pick some pretty rides.
And of course Johnson chose a Pagani Huayara to ride up to the premiere of his HBO show Ballers in 2016. The Pagani Huayra costs at least $1 million and runs on a twin-turbocharged V12 engine capable of hitting over 700 horsepower.
1 Stone Cold Steve Austin Monster Truck Bible Quote
Not mentioning at least one vehicle belonging to Stone Cold Steve Austin in a list about wrestlers and cars would be a crime. Like others mentioned here, Steve Austin has an impressive and sometimes bizarre collection. Among its cacophony of vehicles is this beast.
The truck is highly customized and costs at least $150,000 for the body and chassis alone. Stone Cold Steve Austin had the truck decal with numbers 3:16, a reference to the Holy Bible quotes John 3:16, which reads: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life .” Maybe Stone Cold was trying to put the fear of God in his rival, The Rock, when he brought the truck to WWE TV in 1999.
