Page 2 - With Dave Bautista in 'Guardians of the Galaxy', Here’s 10 Other Wrestlers In Movies To Watch Out For
Andre the Giant -The Princess Bride
There was no better choice to play the Princess Bride’s Fezzik than Andre, the real life giant who had captured the imagination of 80s wrestling fans. The family friendly fantasy has a substantial cult following and has helped cement Andre’s legacy as the world’s most famous gentle giant.
Hulk Hogan -Rocky III
Since the birth of Hulkamania, Hulk Hogan has made many film appearances, most of which we’d rather forget. But Hulk's acting debut came in 1982 alongside Sylvester Stallone in Rocky III, as Thunderlips. The attention Hogan received after his Rocky III appearance would kick start his wrestling fame in the US eventually making him the most famous wrestler in the world.
Triple H -Blade Trinity
Paul Levesque better known as Triple H, makes his mark as a muscle bound vampire in 2004’s Blade Trinity. In the film Hunter as Jarko Grimwood brawls with a pre Green Lantern Ryan Reynolds in a fight scene bad even by Blade Trinity standards. Still if you cant get enough of Triple H acting he also made ‘comedy’ movie The Chaperone in 2011.
Kevin Nash -Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze
Standing at nearly 7ft tall, Kevin Nash, formally known as Diesel has a pretty imposing presence, so it’s not hard to see how he landed the role of ‘Super Shredder’ in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze. Basically all Nash has to do is groan a lot a knock things over, but despite him limites it wouldn't be the last acting role for Nash as he’d go on to demonstrate some impressive movies as a stripper in 2012’s Magic Mike.
The Undertaker Suburban Commando
It’s unlikely that 1991’s Suburban Commando starring Hulk Hogan will be remembered for anything, but one reason why the sci-fi comedy is actually a movie of note is because it contains an appearance by The Undertaker. Yes The Undertaker pops up in this forgotten flick playing Hutch alongside future opponent Hulk Hogan. Released a year after The Undertaker’s debut, Suburban Commando is his only big screen appearance, however he has also guest starred on tv series 'Poltergeist: The Legacy'.
