The world of professional wrestling consists of physical strength, stamina, and a set of acting chops. While wrestling is a physically demanding sport, society has come to an agreement that there is a level of the sport that is indeed fake. The story lines are similar to soap operas, and sometimes the acting is sub par. But this doesn't matter to wrestling fans, and there are even still a select few who think that professional wrestling is indeed real. Arguments still exist on the legitimacy of the sport, and stars are created overnight based on skills and appearances.
The World Wrestling Entertainment, or better known as the WWE, is the most popular and well known wrestling entertainment company. You can watch their matches on numerous cable stations, and join their masses of fans around the world. The wrestlers who work for the WWE are thrown into stardom and can become celebrities in their own right. After receiving so much exposure and a growing fandom, Hollywood is sure to notice. Sometimes that leads to more opportunities such as having roles in movies. Celebrities like Dwayne Johnson, also known as "The Rock" started out as a professional wrestler. "Stone Cold" Steve Austin is also better known as an actor, and some people have even forgotten that he was even a wrestler in the first place.
The wrestlers on this list could be the next Oscar-winning actor, or they could make their own careers from walk-on roles and doing comedy films. Regardless of how they get there, these wrestlers are on the brink of a big break in the world of Hollywood and the entertainment industry.
