When pro wrestlers get cast in acting roles, it's usually as another wrestler or an athlete. However, these are exceptions to the rule.

If you disagree with my choice of "biggest acting role" or feel someone should be added, please voice your opinion. However, keep in mind that this is a list for wrestlers--preferably with more than one acting credit--who are able to get roles that are not "wrestler" or "football player". Also, I'm trying to steer this list away from the campy films that Hulk Hogan and Goldberg seem to do... unless it was a huge success.
