Mick Foley, Arn Anderson: 25 Wrestlers Who Wouldn't Get a Second Look Today

Look at WWE's roster today compared to 30 years ago.

The physiques of the men are becoming increasingly similar.

Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes, Ted DiBiase and Randy Orton are incredibly toned, shaved and shiny.

This body type has become the status quo.

What about the good old days when men were men? When you could have a gut, and still kick some butt in the ring?

Those days seem to be long gone.

Sure, there's still a Brodus Clay now and then, but those are abnormalities in WWE and TNA these days.

The only ones that can get away with looking out of shape are giants like The Big Show or The Great Khali.

Even Alberto Del Rio, with his barely noticeable love handles, looks downright morbidly obese compared to most of the roster.

Here's a look back at wrestling history, and the wide variety of body types that helped make this sport great. This group was all about the personality and the charisma, whereas the look came second.

It's too bad that WWE is so selective now, as there are so many more potential great talents out there who could become a star today, even without the look of a bodybuilder.

Here are 25 successful wrestlers who sadly wouldn't get a second look today.
