WWE Films: 6 WWE Stars Who Deserve to a Chance on the Big Screen
On Friday, "The Reunion" will come out in limited theaters.
Let's face it, it is going to be horrible.
From the previews, there is not anything really redeemable about the film.
John Cena is the star of the movie. He has two random guys as his brothers, who he doesn't really like, and they have to get along for one reason or another.
In the right hands, with the right actors, this could have been an interesting premise.
Instead, it looks to be a fairly flat film with about as much good humor as "See No Evil."
This will be John Cena's fourth WWE Film with the studio.
He has yet to have a good film, yet he still gets more deals.
With a roster packed with talent, why are we not seeing other stars get these chances?
Following are six stars I would love to see in a WWE Film.
Why hasn't this happened yet?
The Miz is the second most mainstream star (behind Cena) the WWE has, and he is at least one of the top five most charismatic stars in the company.
He has a marketable aura about him that begs to be addressed, though, I guess they have not wanted him to look like a good guy when he is possibly the company's best long-term heel.
If so, the moment the Miz turns face look for him to become the newest star in WWE Films.
If anyone can actually break out in the movie business from the WWE anymore, it would probably be The Miz.
Wade Barrett is a brilliant star waiting to be used to his full potential.
The announcers keep talking about him as a person who could play a James Bond type character, and I can kind of see it.
He would also be a phenomenal bad guy.
That classic accent and undeniable charisma is trying to tell the WWE what they are missing.
Hopefully, they listen soon.
How about the most charismatic veteran in the WWE, today?
I like Triple H, but Captain Charisma is named so for a reason.
Christian could easily do a much better job than Triple H has done lately in films, though HHH probably just needs to play something other than an ex-con looking for redemption.
There is nothing that makes Christian not seem perfect for a role in a WWE Film.
I could see him in a nice supporting role in an actual film, so why not give him a main role in what will probably be a horribly scripted film?
Cody Rhodes is young and starting to shine in the WWE thanks to his ability to play his new character.
Films are all about getting into character.
In a few years time, this will certainly happen, but why wait?
Ted Dibiase already has a film to his name.
Rhodes cannot do much worse than playing a carbon copy action star.
In fact, he could do a lot better based upon what we have seen from him so far.
Alberto Del Rio
Sure, Alberto Del Rio's character is becoming a bit stale on the mic, but he is still one of the most effective and subtle actors in the company.
The best part is that he could play one of WWE Film's first WWE star villains.
While he could be a fine star as a good guy, I could really see him getting into the role of a great villain.
For once in a WWE Film, we might actually care about the villain and what happens to him.
Del Rio would be perfect for a movie role, especially as a villain, so do it already, WWE!
If All Else Fails, Randy Orton
Did he go to the papers?
That question still keeps me up at night!
But seriously, the real final man is...
The Voice of the Voiceless and the Best in the World is just waiting.
He is easily the best mic worker in the business right now, and he could definitely transition that to a WWE Film.
Though, I am not sure he would be able to stand reading off of a WWE Film script just rolling in filth and bad humor.
Maybe he should play a supporting role where he is allowed freedom in what he says, or perhaps he could have a say in the writing of the script.
CM Punk in a film is an instant must see regardless of how good the film is.
Stone Cold has been a decent action movie star. The Rock has become a success story.
It is time that the newest star of the WWE get a chance to shine.
Thanks for Reading!
Do we really need John Cena in every WWE film?
He doesn't really have the ability to carry dramatic weight, so he basically is just an action star stuck with corny scripts.
It is time for a change.
Whether that change is named The Miz, Cody Rhodes or CM Punk, it doesn't matter.
John Cena and WWE Films are not working, so give someone else a shot.
It can't get any worse.
