So WWE Raw is in Las Vegas tonight and what’s even more exciting is that Dwayne Johnson will be there as The Rock, stepping out of his role as a Hollywood actor. That got me thinking, what other professional wrestlers acted in movies? So I did some searching (on the internet) and came across the top ten best movies to feature a professional wrestler according to About.com:
1. The Godfather featuring Lenny “The Bull” Montana as Luca Brasi.
2. Blazing Saddles featuring Alex Karras as Mongo.
3. The Wrestler featuring various real life wrestlers.
4. Victor/Victoria featuring Alex Karras as “Squash” Bernstein.
5. The Princess Bride featuring Andre the Giant as Fezzik.
6. Ed Wood featuring George “The Animal” Steele as Tor Johnson.
7. They Live starring Roddy Piper as Nada.
8. Spider-Man featuring Randy Savage as Bonesaw McGraw.
9. Man on the Moon featuring Jerry Lawler as himself.
10. Predator featured Jesse Ventura as Blain.
