Back at WrestleMania 21, WWE used the gimmick at the big show was "going Hollywood." That led to a series of awesome movie spoofs played by wrestlers who can barely act.
Sometimes WWE gets something so incredibly right it's worth revisiting years down the road. Such is the case with the company's marketing push in the weeks leading up to WrestleMania 21 back on April 3, 2005, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. The gimmick?
"WrestleMania goes Hollywood."
The way they marketed this was with a series of spoof videos on popular films starring top wrestlers who, quite frankly, can't act for shit. The result was amazing.
Thankfully, WWE has uploaded those videos and we're going to rank the five from worst to first:
5. Stone Cold Steve Austin in Gladiator
4. John Cena and JBL in A Few Good Men
3. Triple H in Braveheart
2. Eddie Guerrero and Booker T in Pulp Fiction
1. Batista, Big Show, and others do Taxi Driver
Agree with my list? Or would you order them differently?
