BAM! It’s Davey Mac here from the Morning Rat Race (6 to 10 AM) and The East Side Dave And Son Wrestling Show (check it out in the Podcast Section).
And, if you’ve listened to me on the RAT…you know that two of my passions are movies and wrestling. So I’ve decided to combine them both in one kickass list! It’s the Top 5 Wrestlers In Movies! Get in the ring!
5.) The Rock in The Mummy Returns
We have to start the list off with The Rock because, well, he’s been one of the biggest box office stars of all time. But it was Mummy Returns where his superstar career began.
4.) Randy “Macho Man” Savage in Spiderman
Randy Savage brought the pain to poor Peter Parker who courageously stepped inside the squared-circle!
3) Hulk Hogan in Rocky III
Before Hulkamania truly exploded in 1985, Hogan was Thunderlips in Rocky III…a bad guy wrestler who was gonna put the boots to Rocky!
2.) “Rowdy” Roddy Piper in They Live
If you have not scene John Carpenter’s ’80’s sci-fi/horror flick, They Live, I have only one question to ask: What the BLEEP are you waiting for?! The movie rules…and Roddy Piper…as the hero of the story…is AWESOME.
1.) Andrea the Giant in The Princess Bride
Not many roles would fit “The Eighth Wonder Of The World” so perfectly. But in this classic film, Andre is perfectly cast as the imposing yet sweet giant. A fantastic movie and performance.
