From André the Giant in ’80s classic The Princess Bride to Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s rebirth as a Hollywood action icon, the road from wrestling to screen stardom is one that’s well-travelled.
It’s easy to see why these two art forms so often collide – both rely on physically capable, charismatic and quick-witted heroes triumphing over adversity. The WWE boasts big personalities able to fill the big screen, but how well do you know wrestlers on film?
To mark the release of WWE 2K20, the latest instalment in 2K Games’ hit wrestling franchise, we’ve assembled a quiz to test your knowledge on all things WWE and movies. Don’t expect an easy ride, though. We’ve raided the early films of Dwayne Johnson, avoided the obvious Dave Bautista Marvel outings and looked at cameos and curios from the ‘80s and ‘90s.
For the eagle-eyed amongst you who’ve seen Becky Lynch on the cover of WWE 2K20, we’ve even included a question on ‘The Man’ herself. Plus, look out for some of the stars featuring in WWE 2K20 SmackDown! 20th Anniversary Collector’s Edition, the Xbox One and PS4 physical-only edition celebrating two decades of the iconic WWE event with limited edition packaging and collectibles including a Ring Skirt Relic Piece and Legend Autographed Plaque as well as loads of exclusive in-game bonuses.
Good luck with the quiz, and let us know how you got on by posting your scores in the comments below…
