TOP 15 TV Appearances You Forgot These WWE Superstars Made – [Facts Wrack]


15. EDGE – VIKINGS. EVER SINCE FORMER 11-TIME WWE CHAMPION EDGE
RETIRED FROM PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING BACK IN 2011, IT SEEMS THAT THE RATED R SUPERSTAR
HAS BEEN ABLE TO MOVE INTO A CAREER ON THE SMALL SCREEN INSTEAD. EDGE STARTED OUT BY APPEARING IN A RECURRING
ROLE ON SANCTUARY BACK IN 2011, BEFORE MOVING ON TO BECOME ONE OF THE MAIN CAST MEMBERS
ON HAVEN. HE LATER APPEARED ON POPULAR DC-BASED SHOW
THE FLASH BACK IN 2015 AS ATOM SMASHER BEFORE HE WAS SEEN IN A CAMEO APPEARANCE ON PRIVATE
EYES LATER THAT YEAR. SINCE HAVEN CAME TO AN END BACK IN 2015 IT
SEEMS THAT EDGE HAS BEEN FLOATING AROUND THE ACTING WORLD UNTIL HE WAS CAST IN VIKINGS
BACK IN 2016 AS KJETILL FLATNOSE, A PART THAT KEPT HIM ON THE SHOW FOR FOUR EPISODES LAST
YEAR. IT SEEMS THAT HIS APPEARANCE IN SEASON FIVE
OF THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED SHOW WAS RECEIVED WITH MIXED REVIEWS, BUT PROVES THAT THE FORMER
CHAMPION HAS SUCCESSFULLY MADE THE SWITCH IN CAREERS. 14. ROB VAN DAM – THE X-FILES. ROB VAN DAM IS A FORMER WWE AND ECW CHAMPION
BUT HE HASN’T APPEARED ON WWE TV IN MORE THAN FOUR YEARS, INSTEAD OPTING TO REMAIN
ON THE INDEPENDENT CIRCUIT, TELLING WWE THAT HE WILL ONLY BE OPEN TO A RETURN IF THE COMPANY
HAS A SERIOUS STORYLINE FOR HIM. RVD IS STILL ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR WRESTLERS
OF THE 1990S AND IT SEEMS THAT HE HAS BEEN ABLE TO APPEAR IN A NUMBER OF TV SHOWS OVER
THE PAST FEW YEARS JUST TO STRENGTHEN HIS ALREADY IMPRESSIVE ACTING ABILITY. IN 1995, HE APPEARED IN SUPERFIGHTS BEFORE
BEING SEEN IN BLOODMOON TWO YEARS LATER. THE THEN APPEARED IN AN EPISODE OF CITY GUYS
BACK IN 1999 BEFORE BEING SPOTTED IN 18 WHEELS OF JUSTICE THE FOLLOWING YEAR. BACK IN 2000 HE ALSO APPEARED AS ROBERT LARAMIE
IN THE X-FILES AS PART OF AN EPISODE CALLED “FIGHT CLUB.” RVD HAS QUITE THE ACTING RESUME OUTSIDE OF
THE SQUARED CIRCLE BUT HIS ACHIEVEMENTS IN THE RING SEEM TO DWARF THIS IN COMPARISON. 13. TRIPLE H – THE DREW CAREY SHOW. TRIPLE H IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST NAMES IN WWE
RIGHT NOW AFTER BEING PART OF THE COMPANY FOR MORE THAN TWO DECADES AND CURRENTLY BEING
SEEN AS THE COO. WHILE TRIPLE H IS A 14-TIME WORLD CHAMPION
INSIDE THE RING, IT SEEMS THAT HE IS ANOTHER WRESTLER WHO HAS BEEN ABLE TO SHOW OFF HIS
ACTING SKILLS OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS. THE GAME STARRED AS THE MAIN CHARACTER IN
THE FILM THE CHAPERONE BACK IN 2011, WHICH CAME AFTER HIS SHOCK APPEARANCE IN BLADE:
TRINITY MORE THAN SIX YEARS EARLIER. IT SEEMS THAT HE GOT A TASTE FOR THE BUSINESS
BACK IN 1998 WHEN HE FIRST MADE A CAMEO APPEARANCE AS HIMSELF IN PACIFIC BLUE. LATER THAT YEAR HE WAS SEEN AS THE DISCIPLINARIAN
ON THE DREW CAREY SHOW, WHICH WAS A POPULAR 1990S SITCOM THAT CENTRED AROUND THE WORK
AND HOME LIFE OF “EVERYMAN” DREW CAREY. 12. BRET HART – THE SIMPSONS. BRET “THE HITMAN” HART WILL ALWAYS BE
SEEN AS “THE BEST THERE IS, THE BEST THERE WAS AND THE BEST THERE EVER WILL BE” WHEN
IT COMES TO HIS TALENTS INSIDE A WRESTLING RING, BUT EVEN THE WWE HALL OF FAMER HAS HIS
OWN RESUME WHEN IT COMES TO THE ACTING WORLD. HE FIRST MADE THE SWITCH BACK IN 1994 WHEN
HE PLAYED A PRISON INMATE IN NATURAL BORN KILLERS, BUT THIS WASN’T USED IN THE FINAL
EDIT OF THE SHOW. LATER THAT YEAR HE WAS SEEN IN LONESOME DOVE:
THE SERIES WHERE HE PLAYED LUTHER ROOT, BEFORE HE APPEARED IN A GUEST SPOT ON THE SIMPSONS
BACK IN 1997 WHERE HE VOICED HIMSELF IN THE EPISODE “THE OLD MAN AND THE LISA.” HE HAS SINCE BEEN SEEN IN A NUMBER OF OTHER
TV SERIES INCLUDING HONEY I SHRUNK THE KIDS, THE ADVENTURES OF SINBAD AND JACOB TWO-TWO
OVER THROUGHOUT HIS CAREER. 11. THE ROCK – CORY IN THE HOUSE. THE ROCK IS PERHAPS ONE OF THE BIGGEST WRESTLERS
IN THE HISTORY OF THE COMPANY TO HAVE BEEN ABLE TO MAKE THE SWITCH OVER TO THE ACTING
WORLD AND BECOME A HUGE STAR. THE ROCK FOLLOWED IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF HULK
HOGAN, BUT MANAGED TO BECOME A MUCH BIGGER STAR THAN THE IMMORTAL ONE AND IS NOW ONE
OF THE BIGGEST STARS THAT WWE HAS EVER CREATED. OF COURSE, THE ROCK HASN’T ALWAYS BEEN THE
STAR HE IS TODAY, BUT IT DOES OPEN A LOT OF DOORS FOR HIM WHEN IT COMES TO MAKING CELEBRITY
CAMEOS ON TV SHOWS. BACK IN 2007 DWAYNE JOHNSON APPEARED IN THE
GAME PLAN ALONGSIDE MADISON PETTIS, SOMEONE WHO HAD ONLY PREVIOUSLY BEEN SEEN IN CORY
IN THE HOUSE ON THE DISNEY CHANNEL. IT SEEMS THAT THE ROCK DECIDED TO FOLLOW HIS
CO-STAR BACK TO HER REGULAR SHOW AND EVEN MADE A CAMEO APPEARANCE AS HIMSELF IN THE
EPISODE “DON’T STOP TIL YOU GET THE PHONE.” 10. STING – WALKER, TEXAS RANGER. STING‘S WRESTLING CAREER CAME TO AN END
ALMOST TWO YEARS AGO AT THE 2016 HALL OF FAME INDUCTION CEREMONY, WHEN THE ICON ANNOUNCED
THAT HE WAS RETIRING FROM THE SPORT THAT HE HAD BEEN PART OF FOR MORE THAN THREE DECADES. IT SEEMS THAT STING WILL BE BETTER REMEMBERED
FOR HIS TIME IN WCW AND TNA RATHER THAN HIS SHORT STINT IN WWE, BUT IT SEEMS THAT HE HAS
ALSO HAD A NUMBER OF MEMORABLE APPEARANCES ON TV SHOWS OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS AS WELL. HE FIRST APPEARED IN SYNDICATED TV SHOW SUPER
FORCE BACK IN 1991, BEFORE BEING CAST ALONGSIDE HULK HOGAN IN THREE EPISODES OF THUNDER IN
PARADISE BACK IN 1999. HE THEN MADE A GUEST APPEARANCE AS A BIKER
CALLED GRANGUS ON WALKER, TEXAS RANGER AS PART OF THE EPISODE “UNSAFE SPEED” LATER
THAT YEAR. STING WAS ALSO KNOWN FOR HIS APPEARANCE IN
READY TO RUMBLE AS HIMSELF BACK IN 2000. 9. JOHN CENA – HANNAH MONTANA. JOHN CENA COULD BE SET TO MAKE HISTORY THIS
YEAR WHEN HE BECOMES A 17-TIME WORLD CHAMPION, BUT IT SEEMS THAT OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS
CENA HAS BECOME A PART-TIME SUPERSTAR IN WWE AS HE STRUGGLES TO JUGGLE ALL OF HIS COMMITMENTS
OUTSIDE OF WWE AS WELL. IT SEEMS THAT CENA HAS BEEN ACTING NOW FOR
MORE THAN A DECADE AND THE MORE WELL-KNOWN HE HAS BECOME, THE MORE HE HAS BEEN ABLE TO
POP UP IN OTHER TV SHOWS TO MAKE SHOCKING CAMEO APPEARANCES. BACK IN 2010 AFTER CENA HAS APPEARED IN POPULAR
KIDS SHOW FRED: THE MOVIE HE WAS ABLE TO MAKE A SHORT CAMEO ON HANNAH MONTANA, WHICH WAS
CONSIDERED TO BE ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR TEEN SHOWS OF THAT ERA, AS WELL AS THE SHOW THAT
MADE MILEY CYRUS A STAR. CENA APPEARED AS HIMSELF IN THE EPISODE “LOVE
THAT LET’S GO” AND AS PART OF THE EPISODE, HE APPEARS OUT OF A MAGAZINE AND TRIES TO
FORCE HANNAH’S BROTHER JACKSON TO READ A BOOK. 8. ASHLEY MASSARO – SMALLVILLE. ASHLEY MASSARO WON THE 2005 RAW DIVA SEARCH
AND MADE HER WAY ONTO THE RAW ROSTER WHERE SHE BECAME ONE OF THE MAIN WOMEN FOR A NUMBER
OF MONTHS. DESPITE THE FACT THAT SHE APPEARED ON THE
COVER OF PLAYBOY MAGAZINE BACK IN 2007 AND AT WRESTLEMANIA LATER THAT YEAR, ASHLEY REQUESTED
HER RELEASE AND WAS GRANTED IT BACK IN 2008 AND HAS SINCE DROPPED OFF THE RADAR. WHILE ASHLEY WAS STILL PART OF WWE EARLIER
IN 2007 SHE APPEARED ALONGSIDE FELLOW WRESTLER KANE IN AN EPISODE OF SMALLVILLE. IN THE EPISODE, ASHLEY WAS UP AGAINST LOIS
LANE AS PART OF ONE OF THE EPISODES IN SEASON SIX OF THE SHOW. WHILE KANE WAS SEEN AS A LEGITIMATE THREAT
TO SUPERMAN AS HIS CHARACTER, IT SEEMS THAT ASHLEY WASN’T ABLE TO MAKE THE SAME KIND
OF STATEMENT BUT WAS ABLE TO THROW DOWN SOME MOVES AND SUPERMAN’S WIFE ULTIMATELY LOST. 7. BOOKER T – CHARMED. BOOKER T WILL BE KNOWN TO THE CURRENT GENERATION
AS THE VOICE OF MONDAY NIGHT RAW ALONGSIDE MICHAEL COLE AND COREY GRAVES, BUT BEFORE
HE WAS PLACED BEHIND A DESK HE WAS ONE OF THE MOST INTERESTING SUPERSTARS OF THE PAST
DECADE. BOOKER WASN’T JUST ENTERTAINING IN A WWE
RING EITHER. IT SEEMS THAT HE TOOK HIS NATURAL CHARISMA
OVER TO THE ACTING WORLD AS WELL. BOOKER MADE A SHOCK CAMEO APPEARANCE IN SUPERNATURAL
TV SHOW CHARMED BACK IN 2000, ALONGSIDE BUFF BAGWELL AND SCOTT STEINER. THE TRIO APPEARED IN A WRESTLING BASED EPISODE
OF THE SHOW CALLED “WRESTLING WITH DEMONS” WHERE THEY WERE ABLE TO WRESTLE WITH THE THREE
MAIN CHARACTERS OF THE SHOW INSIDE A WRESTLING RING. THE SHOW WAS ABOUT THREE WITCHES AND THE TRIO
PLAYED THE DEMONS WHO WERE SENT TO FIGHT THEM. NEEDLESS TO SAY, DESPITE THE SIZE AND STRENGTH
ADVANTAGE, THEY DIDN’T MANAGE TO WIN. 6. VADER – BOY MEETS WORLD. VADER WAS ONE OF THE BEST LIKED WWE STARS
OF HIS ERA. NOT ONLY WAS HE A MONSTROUS FORCE TO BE RECKONED
WITH, BUT HE WAS ALSO SEEN AS A BIG GUY THAT COULD PULL OFF HIGH FLYING MOVES LIKE MOONSAULTS
AND DROPKICKS. VADER HASN’T BEEN IN THE BEST OF HEALTH
RECENTLY AS A LENGTHY CAREER IN THE BUSINESS HAS BEGUN TO CATCH UP WITH HIM. EVEN THOUGH VADER IS BEST KNOWN FOR HIS ABILITY
IN THE SQUARED CIRCLE, AT THE HEIGHT OF HIS FAME HE WAS ALSO ABLE TO BRANCH OUT AND MAKE
A NUMBER OF APPEARANCES AS PART OF TV SHOWS. ONE OF HIS MOST FAMOUS WAS BOY MEETS WORLD
WHERE HE APPEARED IN FOUR DIFFERENT EPISODES BETWEEN 1995 AND 1996 CALLED THE THRILLA’
IN PHILA,” “NEW FRIENDS AND OLD,” AND “SIXTEEN CANDLES AND FOUR-HUNDRED-POUND
MEN.” LATER THAT YEAR HE ALSO HAD A SMALL ROLE IN
BAYWATCH AS HIMSELF IN THE EPISODE CALLED “BASH AT THE BEACH.” 5. LITA – DARK ANGEL. LITA HASN’T WRESTLED IN WWE FOR MORE THAN
A DECADE BUT SHE IS STILL CONSIDERED TO BE ONE OF THE BIGGEST LEGENDS THAT WWE EVER CREATED. SHE PAVED THE WAY FOR MUCH OF THE HISTORY
THAT THE WOMEN OF THE COMPANY ARE CURRENTLY BEING ABLE TO CREATE. NOT ONLY IS LITA A FORMER FOUR-TIME WOMEN’S
CHAMPION, BUT SHE IS ALSO A LEGITIMATELY TOUGH WOMAN OUTSIDE OF THE RING, WHICH WAS PROVED
BY HER CAMEO ON DARK ANGEL BACK IN 2002. LITA PORTRAYED A CHARACTER CALLED THULA ON
THE SHOW, WHICH WAS FILMED WHILE SHE WAS RECOVERING FROM A BROKEN NECK, WHICH DIDN’T PREVENT
HER FROM PERFORMING HER OWN STUNTS AS HER CHARACTER WENT TOE-TO-TOE WITH MAIN CAST MEMBER
JESSICA ALBA. LITA MADE QUITE THE STATEMENT IN THE SHOW,
BUT SINCE RETIREMENT, IT SEEMS THAT SHE HASN’T DECIDED TO PURSUE A CAREER AS AN ACTRESS LIKE
SO MANY OTHER FORMER WRESTLERS. 4. BILLY GUNN – SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH. BILLY GUNN WAS MOST RECENTLY SEEN ON WWE AS
ONE HALF OF THE NEW AGE OUTLAWS, EVEN THOUGH THE GROUP DECIDED TO WALK AWAY FROM THE COMPANY
ONCE AGAIN BACK IN 2015. GUNN HAS QUITE A STORIED WRESTLING HISTORY
GIVEN THAT HE’S CLOSE FRIENDS WITH WWE COO TRIPLE H, WHICH COULD HAVE HELPED HIM THROUGHOUT
THE PAST FEW YEARS. AS WELL AS MAKING WAVES IN THE 1990S AS A
MEMBER OF D-GENERATION X, GUNN ALSO TRIED HIS HAND AT ACTING WHEN HE APPEARED ON SABRINA
THE TEENAGE WITCH BACK IN 2000, WHICH WAS ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR SHOWS ON TV AT THAT
TIME. UNLIKE MANY WRESTLERS AT THAT TIME, GUNN DIDN’T
APPEAR AS HIMSELF INSTEAD HE WAS SEEN AS A CHARACTER CALLED XAVIER “THE AVENGER”
PRESCOTT IN THE EPISODE “SALEM’S DAUGHTER.” THIS WAS THE ONLY CAMEO GUNN MADE IN MORE
THAN 10 YEARS BEFORE HE WENT ON TO APPEAR IN THE OTHER GUYS BACK IN 2010. 3. THE UNDERTAKER – POLTERGEIST, THE LEGACY. IT’S INCREDIBLE THAT UNDERTAKER HAS HAD
TIME OVER THE PAST FEW DECADES TO DO ANYTHING BUT WRESTLE GIVEN THE FACT THAT HE HAS BEEN
PUSHED AS ONE OF THEIR BIGGEST STARS ALMOST EVER SINCE HIS DEBUT. WHILE UNDERTAKER HAS BEEN BUSY INSIDE THE
RING BECOMING A FORMER WORLD CHAMPION AND CREATING A STREAK AT WRESTLEMANIA, IT SEEMS
THAT HE HAS ALSO BEEN BUSY OUTSIDE OF IT. UNDERTAKER HAS MADE A NUMBER OF CAMEO APPEARANCES
OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS BUT MOST OF THESE HAVE BEEN AS HIMSELF. WHEN HE APPEARED ON POLTERGEIST, THE LEGACY
BACK IN 1999, IT WAS A NICE CHANCE TO SEE THE DEADMAN PORTRAYING A DIFFERENT CHARACTER. UNDERTAKER PLAYED THE ROLE AS A SOUL DEMON
CHASER IN TWO EPISODES OF THE SHOW. LATER THAT YEAR HE ALSO APPEARED IN DOWNTOWN
AS HIMSELF IN ONE EPISODE. UNDERTAKER IS PERHAPS BEST KNOWN FOR HIS APPEARANCE
IN SUBURBAN COMMANDO BACK IN 1991, BUT HE HASN’T BEEN ABLE TO GET A ROLE ON THAT LEVEL
SINCE. 2. THE MIZ – PSYCH. THE MIZ HAS MADE A CAREER OUT OF BEING SEEN
AS A STAR BOTH INSIDE AND OUTSIDE OF WWE. HE HAS THE PERFECT GIMMICK FOR SOMEONE WHO
HAS BEEN IN A NUMBER OF FILMS OUTSIDE OF WWE AND IT SEEMS TO WORK MUCH BETTER FOR THE MIZ
WHEN IT COMES TO THE FACT THAT NONE OF HIS MOVIES HAVE DONE VERY WELL. MIZ IS A FORMER WORLD CHAMPION AND CONSIDERED
TO BE ONE OF THE BEST HEELS IN THE COMPANY RIGHT NOW, WHICH COULD BE WHY HE HAS BEEN
OFFERED A NUMBER OF TV SHOW ROLES RECENTLY. THE MIZ APPEARED ON DETECTIVE/COMEDY SHOW
PSYCH BACK IN 2012 AS MARIO IN THE EPISODE ENTITLED “SHAWN AND THE REAL GIRL.” WHILE MIZ HAS BEEN IN A NUMBER OF SHOWS AS
HIMSELF HE HAS ONLY APPEARED IN A SELECT FEW AS A CHARACTER. THESE INCLUDE CAMEOS ON POPULAR SHOWS LIKE
SIRENS AND SUPERNATURAL IN RECENT YEARS. 1. THE HARDYZ – THAT ’70S SHOW. MATT AND JEFF HARDY ARE TWO OF THE MOST POPULAR
STARS TO HAVE EVER SET FOOT IN A WRESTLING RING, OVER THE PAST TWO YEARS THE BROTHERS
HAVE HAD THE WRESTLING WORLD ON LOCKDOWN AND RECENTLY RETURNED TO WWE TO RECLAIM THE TAG
TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS AT WRESTLEMANIA LAST YEAR BACK IN APRIL. IT SEEMS THAT MATT AND JEFF’S INCREDIBLE
ACTING ABILITY FROM THEIR RECENT RUN IN IMPACT WRESTLING IS SOMETHING THAT THE TWO HAVE BEEN
WORKING ON FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS. BACK IN 1999, THEY APPEARED AS UNCREDITED
WRESTLERS ON THAT ’70S SHOW AS PART OF THE EPISODE ENTITLED “THAT WRESTLING SHOW.” THE EPISODE SEES THE MAIN MEMBERS OF THE CAST
ATTEND A WRESTLING SHOW AND ALSO INCLUDES CAMEOS FROM THE ROCK AND KEN SHAMROCK. INCREDIBLY, THE DUO HAS NEVER MADE A SERIOUS
STEP INTO THE ACTING BUSINESS, SINCE ACTING HAS BEEN THEIR MAIN FOCUS FOR THE BEST PART
OF THEIR LIVES.
