5 movie characters that would make great WWE wrestlers
There are WWE superstars who have made a bold name for themselves inside the ring, yet also have gone on to create magic on the silver screen.
Two notable icons that come to mind include The Rock, as the action-packed agent Luke Hobbs in the Fast & Furious franchise, and Dave Bautista’s instellar performance as the exceedingly popular Drax the Destroyer from Guardians of the Galaxy. Both are compelling characters, and both actors have had successful careers with their unique personas inside the squared circle.
But what if it was the other way around? What iconic movie characters would fit in perfectly with the WWE’s current landscape? Perhaps a Marvel villain would face off for the intercontinental championship? Or maybe a Jedi might use the force to pull down the WWE championship in a ladder match?
The reality is that any character you could possibly think of could be on this list. However, there is some methodology to choosing characters, that is they are at least plausibly believable.
Let’s be honest, the WWE has come up with crazier gimmicks in its time and sold them very well, and surely the list you are about to read will be no exception.
#1 Randy 'The Ram' Robinson (The Wrestler)
Let start with a fictional wrestler. Randy “The Ram” Robinson, played by Mickey Rourke, was the lead character in the aptly named film ‘The Wrestler. It is a story about a washed-up icon of an old era of wrestling trying to regain some of his old fame and glory at the detriment of his own health.
Although with the potential that any movie character could be on this list, it only seems fair that such an iconic fictional wrestler gets his shot on the 'grandest stage of them all'.
