Before finding fame in the squared circle, many WWE superstars tried their luck playing other sports.

Football was a popular sport among male superstars back in their high school and college days. John Cena, Brock Lesnar, The Usos, Big E, and many others were football players before becoming pro wrestlers.

Several female superstars have also played different sports during high school. A few of them joined their high schools' basketball teams, while others preferred to practice soccer, volleyball, and even lacrosse and diving.

Some of these female superstars have proven themselves to be high-level athletes even before their WWE success. One even captained her volleyball team and led them to two championships.

On this list, Sportskeeda Wrestling sheds light on 10 female superstars who played high school sports.
