It’s always seemed that Pro Wrestling and Hollywood would make a great fit. Pro Wrestling is filled with colorful and larger than life characters, much like the characters in a movie. Wrestling is a strange mix of athletics, theatrics and acting. Generally, a wrestler is either cast as a good guy or villain (known as Baby Face and Heel respectively in wrestling jargon). When it comes down to it, wrestling and movies are not that different.

In some cases, when a wrestler is cast in a film it’s proven to be very successful. These include films such as, They Live (Roddy Piper), Predator (Jesse Ventura) and The Princess Bride (Andre The Giant). These films weren’t successful solely because of the wrestler, but they certainly helped add to it. The 2008 film The Wrestler starring Mickey Rourke, was universally critically acclaimed. It was based around wrestling and featured appearances by several independent wrestlers such as, The Necro Butcher. However, sometimes Pro Wrestling and Hollywood seem to make the worse pairing. There are the other cases when Pro Wrestling and Hollywood just didn’t make a good fit. They seem like different worlds clashing and the results can be disastrous. Here is a look at 10 of the worst movies starring wrestlers.

Hulk Hogan may be one of the greatest and most recognizable wrestlers of all time; however, his film career has been full of ups and downs (mostly downs). Hulk has starred in forgettable films such as Suburban Commando, Santa With Muscles and Assault on Devil’s Island. But all those films pale in comparison to the film Mr. Nanny. Hulk plays Sean, an ex-wrestler who becomes a bodyguard and glorified babysitter for two rich kids. The film has received overwhelming negative reviews and holds a 7% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It was a commercial and critical failure. The film was heavily criticized for its plot, writing and acting. It also famously features Hulk Hogan wearing a pink tutu.
