5 WWE stars who tried Hollywood, but didn't quite make it

One of The Game’s projects

Triple H in Blade: Trinity along with A-lister Ryan ReynoldsIt’s well known that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is one of the most popular actors today, if not the most popular. The Brahma Bull, initially a wrestler (as known by all), is now starring in blockbuster after blockbuster, and truly is the most electrifying man in all of entertainment. There are some wrestlers, however, who were on the cusp of Hollywood stardom, but didn’t make it. Not everyone can be The Rock, of course! These wrestlers have starred in movies, but have not made it as far as Dwayne Johnson has, in fact, not even close. The Rock: Out of his 36 movies 20+ are bonafide hits.In contrast, Triple H has zero hits despite his honest efforts.Let’s look at five of them, and see how far they made it. 

#1 Triple H

In WWE’s home video documentary of Triple H’s life and career, Thy Kingdom Come, it is briefly discussed that Triple H had once had a minor acting career. This is well known, as he did movies such as Blade: Trinity and The Chaperone, in which he played the main role. 

Having been in 12 films thus far, including animated, and playing himself in six of them, Triple H has a decent number of films under his belt. In his documentary, however, he did say that he only considered acting a hobby, and didn’t consider turning it into a career, like The Rock did. His previous two films have both been from WWE Studios: Scooby Doo: WrestleMania Mystery, and his own Power Series, in which he is a virtual fitness instructor. Both were released last year.
