Wrestlers are notorious for putting out sub-par movies when they step out of the squared circle. Sometimes it’s not even their fault. But we decided to rank some of the most notable film roles that were made while these superstars were still professional wrestlers.
Based on the novel of the same name, The Princess Bride—voted one of the greatest comedies ever—stars Andre the Giant as Fezzik, a member of a trio of bandits out to kidnap Princess Buttercup. It’s one of the most notable roles a wrestler has played in a film to date.
