Five Professional Wrestlers Who Are Mirror Images of Soccer Players

Comparisons between professional wrestlers and soccer players have become few and far between in this modern world of breaking news and live event coverage.

However, I have attempted to answer the age-old question of exactly which five sports entertainers most naturally compare to some of soccer's current greats.

Soccer and pro wrestling are not renowned for their obvious similarities, but being a British resident, I can assure you that featured coverage of both is excessive across a variety of television channels.

The antics of Santino Marella and Shane McMahon are examples of the two phenomena blending in recent years, with the British wrestling crowds often vociferously receptive to soccer references.

Here I'll hope to show you how there are numerous contrasts to be made between the athletes in both professions, who aren't as dissimilar as you would think.
