Pro rasslin' sure had a lot in the movies, as has the NFL. Boxing? Basketball? Baseball? Soccer? Rugby? Swimming? Tennis?

What would the 10 biggest sports stars/Hollywood stars look like from each sport?

Hell, been a TON of pro rasslers in the movies, what......50?

You're kidding.

Think pro rasslin' now what pro rasslers were in the movies?

Each sports best 10 to be in a movie.
As in the sport's best or the movie's best? Like if they were a great athlete but in a terrible movie or a sucky athlete in a great movie? What should we be counting?

Tried to use Google Translate but wasn't sure what to translate it from.

Really that complex?

All sports have athletes, right?

Ya with me?

Give me 10 athletes from each sport who was in a movie.

See how easy that is?

I doubt any sport can compare to pro wrestling, there we see 50???

I can't name 50, and I won't, but I can name 10: Randy Orton, John Cena, The Rock, Batista, RVD, Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, Mr. Anderson, John Morrison, and The Miz.
Remember the big guy in The Godfather? That was pro rassler Lenny Montana. ODDJOB in the James Bond movie a pro rassler. Tor Johnson an x pro rassler. Tons of them.

I didn't know that massive dude, Luca Brasi was a wrestler. That's awesome! I guess I've seen more movies with pro wrestlers than I though. I also know Edge, but I think he's only played on TV series, not movies. Oh, I also forget that you can probably get a lot from that Adam Sandler movie: Goldberg, The Great Khali, Kevin Nash... nevermind. Not seen it in so long.

For a second, I got confused with Oddjob and Jaws for some reason. Instantly thought Jaws when you mentioned it.

Stan Collymore and Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct 2.

Think the must have dropped some hot coffee in their laps here, and they are now trying to rub it off.

The best known football film is probably escape to victory. Lots of players in this.



Football is really hard to recreate on screen though.
