There have been a fair few WWE superstars, who have transitioned to Hollywood, but only a few have become successful or have become names in the movie industry. WWE is also entertainment in a way, and the WWE superstars have to be good actors. So, therefore, from time to time, there are WWE superstars who make a big name in Hollywood. They have a busy career and are not able to give WWE all their time. A lot of these stars tried their hand in casinos as well. Going to the real casinos can be expensive, but online you can start with just 5e tallatus (5 Euros Deposit) and start your journey. WWE, Glamour and Hollywood go hand in hand. 

Let's look at the five most successful wwe superstars who became Hollywood Actors.


The Rock

There cannot be any debate as to the number-one transition from WWE to Hollywood. The Rock was the biggest WWE superstar when he was in his prime, and then he left for Hollywood. He has become one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, and he gets the most money to play in movies as well. The Rock is the perfect example of how to successfully move from one industry to the next. It has been 20 years for The Rock in Hollywood, and he has worked on movies such as Black Adam, The Fast and Furious movies, GI Joe, Jungle Cruise, and Red Notice. The Rock has a lot of work lined up for him.


It was a very close call between numbers 2 and 3 in this list because both Batista and John Cena have successful careers in Hollywood, but the amount of varied work that Batista has done in his career gives him the edge. He has been working in Hollywood for more than a decade, and he has been in Guardians of the Galaxy for Marvel; he has also been in Blade Runner 2049, Dune, Army of the Dead, James Bond movies, and Knives Out. Batista is getting different kinds of roles in Hollywood, and that is a sign of a great actor.

John Cena

At number 3 is John Cena, and he is just behind Batista, but he has also done some amazing work in Hollywood. He has been in Hollywood for more than seven years, and he has been in movies such as Fast and Furious, Bumblebee, as well as being known as Peacemaker in the DC Universe. John Cena is working hard on his acting, and recently he worked with Jackie Chan in a movie. He is still the most active in WWE, and by that, it means that he is there in WWE once or twice a year.


After Edge retired in 2011, he was not sure what to do, so he went into acting, he got a very popular show called the Vikings, and Edge was someone who was a very good actor, and he was in multiple seasons of the Vikings, and recently he was also cast in Disney’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians. Edge is a character actor, and that can be seen in all his performances, even in the wrestling ring or when he cuts promos. After he retires again from the WWE, he can get into acting.

The Miz

At number 5 is The Miz, and not a lot of WWE fans know that The Miz is a WWE superstar who has made a successful transition to Hollywood. The Miz has been in Hollywood for a few years, he was also the star in The Marine movies, and he was also in the series Miz and Mrs., which has been on for multiple seasons. The Miz is looking for more work, and he has the equity. It would be interesting to see what he does next.
