The WWE has grown in popularity immensely over the last few decades, and this has allowed its wrestlers to live rather luxurious lives. When seeing how many wrestlers end up growing into movie superstars after their careers end—especially if they were on top of the industry—this shows that they are receiving huge sums of money. A lot of wrestlers end up buying rather expensive cars and even start up their own collections. One cannot fault them for doing so, as they have the money to do without running into any significant issues. Some of them choose stylish sports cars while some select immense luxury vehicles with cushy interior amenities.
However, in this article, we will be looking at 15 WWE stars who are actually driving bad cars and should sell them. It is important to note that these wrestlers will be coming from different time periods, so some may be retired, while others are still active. Regardless of their current status, it is clear that they are all in very solid financial states and some are making even more now than they were during the heights of their wrestling days. Whatever the case may be, it is clear that these wrestlers are driving rather lackluster vehicles, when they truly could be driving the most special of cars.
With all that being stated, let's look at these WWE stars who need to sell their sad rides.
15 The Rock: Ford F-150
The Rock was once the face of the entire WWE, but has since grown into a movie superstar. With all of the money that he has been able to obtain over the years, one might assume that he must drive some of the most expensive vehicles one can buy. However, this is not the case.
The Rock’s vehicle of choice is the Ford F-150, which is a wonderful pickup truck, but it does not scream luxury. When seeing how The Rock is one of the most popular figures in the entire world, it is crazy to see that he drives around an everyday pickup.
14 Kane: Smart Car
Kane was one of the most popular wrestlers in the WWE during the Attitude Era. Whether it would be him and The Undertaker tagging up to dominate the ring or him on a solo run, he was an absolute star. However, one may be surprised by what he is driving today.
Kane currently sports a Smart Fortwo, which is surprising considering how big he is. At seven feet tall, it is amazing that he actually can fit inside one of these cars. Smart cars are not necessarily bad but they have been prone to having a lot of issues and it is clear that Kane could be driving something a lot better with his salary.
13 Braun Strowman: Kia Soul
Braun Strowman is definitely one of the strongest wrestlers in the WWE, as he has been active in strongman competitions for a number of years. Like Mark Henry, Strowman has been able to obtain a WWE career through many years and has made a ton of money in the process.
However, when looking at what Strowman drives, one may not even realize that he is rich. He currently is driving a Kia Soul, which as a model does have a good reputation, but there's no arguing against the fact that it definitely is cheap. There is nothing wrong with driving a regular car but he could be driving something a lot better.
12 Ronda Rousey: Honda Accord
Ronda Rousey made a lot of noise during her career in the UFC and she clearly would end up becoming the most popular female in the sport. However, as her career progressed, she appeared to have lost a step and that is why she now is a member of the WWE.
When seeing how she has been a part of two major leagues, it is clear that she has an abundance of money. However, she has been seen famously driving a Honda Accord, which definitely does not scream luxury. She definitely could be sporting something far better than this everyday vehicle.
11 Dean Ambrose: Hyundai Santa Fe
Dean Ambrose definitely may not be the most popular wrestler in the business, but he has had his fair share of success. His biggest accomplishment is that he is a one-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion, so it is clear that he does have a bit of a following.
With him being in the WWE for a handful of years now, it is clear that he has made a good amount of money. When looking at what he drives, however, one may be a bit surprised. He currently is riding in a Hyundai Santa Fe, which is more known for its safety features rather than its amount of luxury.
10 Steve Austin: 1995 Ford Bronco
Everybody in the WWE universe loves Stone Cold Steve Austin and this makes plenty of sense. He was one of the most entertaining wrestlers for a number of years and he still has a major place in the hearts of every major wrestling fan today.
This may come as a surprise to some but he tends to keep his car collection to older cars. One of his favorite pieces is the 1995 Ford Bronco, which has actually been known for its negative reviews over the years. However, Austin does what he likes to do, so he will continue to drive it until it completely hits the fan.
9 Daniel Bryan: Honda Fit
Daniel Bryan has truly blossomed into one of the most popular wrestlers in the entire WWE, and this will likely not change for quite some time. There is no question that he will be forever remembered as one of the funniest and most entertaining wrestlers of his time.
Bryan has been a champion in the sport numerous times, so he has been able to rack up a ton of money in the process. Although this is the case, he currently is driving an underwhelming Honda Fit at this time. Known for his "yes" chant, we sadly are going to have to say no to his car.
8 Batista: Hummer H2
Batista was one of the most iconic wrestlers during his time in the WWE. When he was in his prime, there was no better wrestler when it came to overall strength. Due to this clear fact, Batista was a champion on numerous occasions and is still beloved by the entire WWE universe.
Since his wrestling days are no longer full-time, he has focused his talents on acting and he is now a film superstar. With all of the money he has been able to make, it is a bit strange to see that he still opts to drive his gas-guzzling and poorly structured Hummer H2.
7 Rey Mysterio: Toyota Tundra
Rey Mysterio will forever be remembered for his triumphant journey to the World Heavyweight Championship. He was one of the best technical wrestlers of his time, and his 619 finisher is a clear indication of that. It would help him reach a number of achievements.
When looking at how much money he has been able to obtain, it is surprising to see that his preferred vehicle of choice is a Toyota Tundra. These are not necessarily bad pickups but they definitely are more known for average working folks. Nonetheless, it will forever be a mystery as to why Mysterio loves the Tundra so much.
6 Matt Hardy: Cadillac Escalade
Matt Hardy has been a part of the WWE for a number of years and this has allowed him to become one of its most popular figures. Hardy and his brother Jeff were one of the best tag team duos in the history of the industry due to their outstanding acrobatic abilities.
It should not come as a surprise that Hardy has been able to obtain a heaping pile of money over the years but his car of choice is questionable. He currently sports a Cadillac Escalade, which is a luxury car but has been known for its many structural issues over the years.
5 Tommy Dreamer: Kia Optima
Tommy Dreamer would end up having a fairly long WWE career and this, of course, would help him earn plenty of money. He currently is still involved in wrestling today, as he owns his own company called House of Hardcore.
With all that he has been able to accomplish and the money he has obtained, one may assume that he must be driving one of the best cars possible. Instead, Dreamer is currently riding around in a Kia Optima, which may be dependable but is a bit lackluster compared to what he could own if he felt like spending a bit more cash.
4 Natalya: Volkswagen CC
Natalya has developed into one of the most talented female wrestlers in the entire WWE, as evidenced by her Women's Championship run in 2017. With this being the case, she has been able to accumulate plenty of money over her career and can live quite comfortably.
In terms of her car of choice, one may be surprised that she currently sports a Volkswagen CC. This vehicle definitely is not a bad one but it has been noted as being pretty basic compared to the luxury cars available in the automobile world. At the end of the day, she could be driving something far better.
3 Shinsuke Nakamura: Mazda Demio Skyactiv
Before Shinsuke Nakamura began his WWE career, he was a mixed martial artist. Since then, he has become a very popular member of the WWE and is currently performing with Smackdown. He has steadily been increasing his net worth in the process, as well.
When looking at what Nakamura is driving, one definitely may be surprised. He currently is driving a Mazda Demio Skyactiv. This vehicle definitely lacks a luxury feel but has been known as being very dependable. Yet, Nakamura clearly could be driving something far more expensive if he wanted to. Apparently, though, he doesn't want to spend the dough.
2 Kevin Nash: Ford Bronco
Kevin Nash is another wrestler on this list that still drives a Ford Bronco but his is from 1993. This makes a bit of sense, as Nash is another older wrestler, so perhaps the Bronco holds a place in his heart. However, it clearly is behind the vehicles of today.
As for Nash's wrestling career, he would go on to have a fairly solid one. His popularity definitely increased as his career progressed and it would result in him receiving a lot of money. However, even with this being the case, he still is riding his Bronco around like it's a cool truck.
1 Steve Austin: 2003 Ford Focus
Steve Austin seems to love older Ford cars, as he also drives a 2003 Ford Focus. This definitely is pretty surprising, as the Focus series has been notorious for their many issues. However, Austin seems to not care too much about them and rides in his 2003 Focus with pride.
It is quite apparent that, with both his Ford Bronco and Ford Focus, Austin is an individual who simply does not enjoy luxury vehicles. This does make a lot of sense, as he is a person who seems to enjoy the simpler aspects of life. That, honestly, is something to respect about him.
