It started with a minor hit, with Kane starring in See No Evil. It continued with a DVD best-seller, with John Cena starring in The Marine. Next was an absolute turkey, as Steve Austin starred in the much-panned The Condemned.
That last movie led WWE to put most of their forthcoming movies straight to DVD, with their next movie, Mr. Kennedy's Behind Enemy Lines: Colombia the first to emerge. Ted DiBiase is set to take over from Cena in The Marine 2, whilst Cena himself manages to at least get his next movie, 12 Rounds, into cinemas.
But which WWE Superstars and Divas are likely to end up either on the silver screen or on your Blu-Ray DVD player in the future? Here's my look at what I'd like to see...
JOHN MORRISON and THE MIZ IN DUDE, WHERE'S MY CAR? 2
These guys are destined to be in a movie. Heck, if Morrison spends all of it without a shirt on, we could even expect it to break box office records.
Miz as the goofy idiot and Morrison as the philosophical straight man would be screen gold, and a sequel to the Ashton Kutcher and Seann William Scott movie would be a good model for them to just be silly. There could even be a cameo for Mr. Fuji...
THE GREAT KHALI and HORNSWOGGLE IN TWINS 2
Two brothers...but that's all they have in common. Not much dialogue involved here, but when has a movie featuring a giant and a midget ever failed to entertain? Well...most times, admittedly, but the kids will love it. It'll almost certainly be repeated every year at Christmas.
MICKIE JAMES IN TOMB RAIDER 3
Come on, did you see Cyber Sunday? Even Angelina herself would admit after watching the Divas Halloween Costume Contest that there's a new girl to wear Lara Croft's tiny shorts and tight vest.
WWE were able to get the rights to the Behind Enemy Lines franchise for Kennedy, why not let Mickie loose as Lara? Sure she'd have to learn an English accent, but who cares when you've got her hot body bursting through that iconic outfit?
CHARLIE HAAS IN FACE/OFF 2
TRIPLE H IN SNEEZERMAN
This may not be an original idea (thank you, Miz and Morrison), but this movie just has to be made. There's been talk of The Game doing that Journey of Death movie that's been going on for years, and he's been mentioned a few times to play Thor, but Sneezerman is a franchise people are already marking out for. Plus he doesn't have to play too far away from his WWE character for this one. Kids will love the snot too.
EDGE and MIKE KNOX IN THE HAIR BEAR BUNCH
Two beards that just reek of awesomeness - how can they not put these two in a movie together?
KOFI KINGSTON and MIKE ADAMLE IN JAMAICAN ME CRAZY: THE MUSICAL
[That's enough...Bleacher Report mods]
