WWE and NASCAR have partnered many times over the years with WWE events and superstars being a part of the car paint jobs.
More recently, WWE superstars have served as Grand Marshals or honorary pace car drivers for NASCAR events. Big E hosted NASCAR Cup Series Championship 4 on November 6, and while doing the media round, he spoke with Speed Freaks about the crossover between WWE and NASCAR fans.
“The Venn Diagram between NASCAR fans and WWE fans, I feel like it’s very connected. There’s a lot of crossover people and Joey Logano has done stuff on Raw. We have so many people coming in and out of both fanbases. It seems like a natural fit where so many people who enjoy NASCAR enjoy WWE too. he said.
NASCAR drivers are known to get into some fights outside of the cars and on the track, fans see the drivers’ different personalities through their driving tactics.
“That’s why there are parallels between NASCAR and WWE, which comes down to storytelling. That’s what engages the fans. That’s what NASCAR does and that’s what WWE does. You have your babyfaces and your heels, we’re telling stories. As a fan, that’s what I love to sink my teeth into, the storytelling.” said Big E.
