The Academy Awards may be upon us, but honestly, who cares?
Professional actors have got nothing on professional wrestlers!
Sure, Denzel Washington is a great actor, but could he deliver a believable double axe-handle? Could Daniel-Day Lewis pull off looking like a badass in spandex trunks? Could Joaquin Phoenix cut a promo on The Big Show?
But somehow, acting in professional wrestling isn't often considered in very high regards.
Still, there is an art to it.
Some wrestlers just “are” their character. They don’t need to force the act. They just get it, and convey a sense of believably that makes fans buy into them.
Others struggle to play the role given to them. For further proof, just compare a promo from Steve Austin to one from Steve Blackman.
This list takes a look at the best and worst actors in a variety of categories within WWE. It's time to celebrate the best real acting talent on the planet!
