Can you name these professional wrestlers making cameos on other TV shows?

Who are these WWF stars on The Love Boat, Star Trek and more?

Professional wrestlers are athletes — we won't argue that. But they are also actors.

No wonder they tend to turn up in television and movies more than other sports heroes. The '80s and '90s were the golden era of the WWF, when wrestlers with colorful personalities and costume slapped each other around in the ring. Wrestlemania made them stars, leading to cartoons, toys and even ice cream bars.

Just take the following TV cameos, for example. Wrestlers turned up in sitcoms, action shows and late night. See if you can name them all!
  1. This Wrestlemania icon appeared in The Love Boat episode "Who's the Champ."

  2. Speaking of The Love Boat, this wrestler set sail in "The Love Boat: A Valentine Voyage."
  3. Speaking of voyages, this up-and-comer was an arena warrior on Star Trek: Voyager.
  4. This beloved wrestler played both Bigfoot on The Six Million Dollar Man and a "Monster" on The Greatest American Hero.

  5. The militaristic grappler became a G.I. Joe character — and action figure.

  6. As the spokesman for Slim Jim, he implored (well, screamed), "Snap into it!"

You sure know your wrestlers. It figures! Damn right I know my wrestling. I've been a wrestling fan since the 70s, that's back when Andre Roussimoff was Geant Jean Ferre (anglicized: Giant John Ferray) right here in Montreal.

I see he died yesterday. He was one of the best players in the "Theater of the Absurd," that was the WWF.

I liked those crazy pranks Andy Kaufman used to pull. He blurred the line between fiction and reality, which were interesting lessons for me. The Lawler business was great fun.
cperrynaples harlow1313 25 months ago
Yep, that was during the period when Kaufman was wrestling women as a goof!
Geronimo harlow1313 25 months ago
Lawler was serious with Kaufman. He could have really hurt Kaufman. Kaufman was a buffoon.
