Throughout its history, the WWE has had countless number of memorable moments. Some of those moments have included the use of a car, either as a weapon or as the target of destruction. Cars have come in all shapes and sizes, from expensive ones to limousines to trucks and semitrailers. Some of these car crashes have been hilarious, some have been scary, and some have just been shocking.
A few times, fans have been left wondering if what they just witnessed was real or simply part of the storyline. There is no limit to how far wrestlers will go to entertain their fans, especially if it includes bodily harm. Now, with the rise of the Divas division, one has to wonder if it’s a matter of time before we see Divas involved in car crashes or some type of vignette where a Diva destroys a vehicle in some form or fashion.
With this said, here is a look at 20 of the most awe-inspiring moments of vehicular destructions in the WWE, including a description of what led up to the accident or incident. Be ready to laugh, cry and be in awe once again (or for the first time) at some of the most outrageous moments in WWE history.

17 Kofi Kingston Trashes Randy Orton’s Car
At the 2009 Bragging Rights pay-per-view, Kofi Kingston lost a traditional 5-on-5 match for Team RAW when the Big Show betrayed his team and choke slammed the fake Jamaican, allowing Chris Jericho to pin him and win the match for Team SmackDown. Kingston and Cody Rhodes, who was a member of Team RAW, got into an argument about Kofi letting his team down. Later that night, during Randy Orton’s championship match, his Legacy stablemates Rhodes and Ted Dibiase interfered in the match, only to see KK run them off with a chair. Orton would go on to lose the match, and he blamed the future New Day member for the loss.
On the October 26 episode of RAW, Orton assaulted Kingston after his match with Y2J. Kofi would get the last laugh that night, interrupting Orton’s promo from the top of The Viper’s new NASCAR vehicle, including keying the car, smashing the windows and pouring a bucket of orange paint all over it. At this moment, Kofi was at his highest push.

Things got very personal before their WrestleMania encounter, with Del Rio and his bodyguard Brodus Clay taking every opportunity to lay waste to Edge. Around this time, Edge’s long-time tag team partner Christian returned from injury and aided his best friend in his rivalry with ADR.

At WrestleMania 31, Seth Rollins shockingly cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase and delivered a Curb Stomp to former Shield member Roman Reigns, who was wrestling WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar.

8 Batista destroys JBL’s limo
The Animal was fresh off a victory from the 2005 Royal Rumble. At the time he was still a member of Evolution. He now had the choice to select which champion he would face at WrestleMania 21 – either the WWE Champion JBL or fellow stablemate and WWE World Heavyweight Champion HHH. The Game, worried about Batista gunning for him, devised a scheme to have Batista run over with a limousine that looked EXACTLY like JBL’s limo, only to push The Animal out of harm’s way at the last minute, thus leading Batista to believe The Game had his best interest at heart. HHH even told Batista to go after JBL’s championship and to stay loyal to Evolution, thus ensuring The Cerebral Assassin would remain champion.
7 Vince McMahon Dies in a Limo Explosion?!?
6 “Stone Cold” Steve Austin Blows Up the D-X Express
5 “Stone Cold” Steve Austin Fills Mr. McMahon’s Corvette With Wet Cement
Since his first championship win at WrestleMania 14, Stone Cold Steve Austin was determined to be his own man and not Vince McMahon’s puppet champion. Because of this, McMahon decided to make Austin’s life a living hell, trying time after time to stack the deck against him in the hopes Stone Cold would lose his coveted title. When McMahon schemed with The Undertaker and Kane, the Brothers of Destruction teamed up in a triple threat match at Breakdown to cost Austin his championship.
In this RAW episode on Oct. 12, 1998, the segment started with a nerdier-than-ever Michael Cole, who thankfully was not the play-by-play announcer yet – trying to get an interview with Austin. Cole proceeded to ask Stone Cold one of the dumbest questions while Austin is sitting in a cement truck. Geez, Michael, I wonder what he could be up to?!? Stone Cold ends the interview by telling Cole to let Vince McMahon know what he is about to do and thankfully dismissed the amateur interviewer: “Now get your ass out of here because I’ve got some work to do, and I want to check my equipment out!”
4 John Cena and CrymeTyme Give JBL’s Limo a Makeover
In 2008, John Cena and JBL renewed their rivalry from 2005 after both participate in a fatal four way elimination match for the WWE Championship at Backlash. During the fatal four way, Cena submitted JBL to the STF. On the July 7, 2008 episode of Monday Night RAW, Cena interrupted a JBL promo and mentioned that his limousine was not in compliance with Louisiana state law. The leader of Cenation told The Self-Proclaimed Wrestling God that state law required vehicles to have a passenger mirror. Standing alongside Cena were CrymeTyme, with each member wielding a baseball bat and keeping Bradshaw at bay. Cena asked JTG if he saw a passenger-side mirror. Immediately, JTG proceeded to smash said mirror off of JBL’s limousine, and then gave a priceless “I don’t see any mirror” look to Cena. The Champ then let JBL know that state law required a ventilated windshield, much to Bradshaw’s dismay. “Shad, would you please help JBL ventilate his windshield?” Shad thought for a second how to do this, and proceeded to batter the windshield to pieces, much to the audience’s delight. After having some more fun at JBL’s expense, Cena and CrymeTyme finished the segment by spray painting the limousine as a parting gift.
3 “Stone Cold” Steve Austin Runs Over The Rock’s New Car
Austin really had a knack for destroying the vehicles of his antagonists. After claiming victory over The Rock at WrestleMania 15 a month earlier, the two were involved in a memorable battle on a bridge that saw Rocky seemingly toss Austin into the river down below along with his Smoking Skull championship belt. On the following week’s RAW (April 19, 1999), The Rock opened the show by driving down the ramp in a hearse (No, Paul Bearer was not behind the wheel) and telling the audience there would be a eulogy for the Texas Rattlesnake later that evening. The Rock even had a makeshift graveyard next to the entrance ramp.
2 “Stone Cold” Steve Austin Traps HHH in His Car and Drops Him With a Forklift.
1 D-X Breaks the McMahons' Limousine
Vince and Shane McMahon had been feuding with Shawn Michaels and HHH for the better part of 2006. As Vince and Shane were working in the hallway to their limousine, the Chairman confessed to his son that he felt D-X had “broken him,” primarily because of they had spray-painted Vince’s $30 million private jet, or his “baby,” and left graffiti all over the WWE headquarters. After Shane entered the limousine, Vince stood there looking at his chauffeur and cursed him out for not wearing a tie, calling him a “little bastard.” As the limousine took off, the audience could clearly see a chain tied to the rear axle of the limo. Suffice to say, the McMahons didn’t get very far, as the chain completely ripped the entire axle off! Vince’s entire facial expressions were absolutely priceless. After getting over the shock, Vince and Shane notice the D-X green graffiti on the right side of the limo, and they realize D-X has just gotten the upper hand for the third time that night. Vince starts kicking the limousine, yelling and cursing and holding his ear. The King ends the segment by saying, “I think it’s happened! I think D-X has broken Mr. McMahon!” D-X had two words for Vince: New axle!
