All you wrestling fans have finally got to me.

All weekend I've been thinking about movies I liked that had wrestlers in starring roles. Now I know that you guys can list your favorite films with no hesitation, but I want to share a film with a wrestler few guys ever talk about.


Randall "Tex" Cobb has been an athlete all his life. Football, boxing, wrestling - Tex has done it all and it would be a nice change to given him his acting creds too. 


A lot has been said about, "Blind Fury", but I bet more guys know Tex for this film than any other. It really shook me up to see Tex in that scene where he flings the little kid across the room then shoots his mom played by Meg Foster!


Meg Foster is one of the most striking women in entertainment with her amazing blue eyes. I've seen Meg on TV in the ABC series, "Here Come the Brides", and Meg has worked continuously ever since. Did you guys know that Meg was Evil-Lyn in, "Masters of the Universe" from 1987?  

Here's the scene from "Bling Fury" where Tex kills Meg. Seen it many times and it still shocks me!

Well I'm going with the most obvious one: Roddy Piper in They Live from 1988.

Bam Bam Bigelow did a cameo in Major Payne as a tough biker. But he was no match for Damon Wayans.

Don't you guys find it interesting that Roddy Piper, in the famous bank scene, didn't shoot first?
The security guard fired the first shot.

The Hulkster has been in a few films but Suburban Commando is one of my faves. Mark Calaway AKA The Undertaker was also in this.

Now here's a guy you don't hear about every day:


Tommy "Tiny" Lister as President Lindberg - "The Fifth Element" - 1997

Sure was cool seeing Tiny Lister up on the big screen. Isn't it amazing to realize how easily actors could move from one role in a genre to something completely different in the next project? And I do miss the ease with which actors of color could star in a big movie without a lot of "explaining to do", lol.







Excuse me everyone, but is this movie really from 1997?

The women of New Vegas ask me a lot if there's a Mrs. New Vegas. Well, of course there is! You're her. And you're still just as perfect as the day we met.

With Randy it wasn't what he said, but how he said it. Awesome wrestler!

Was The Nanny really as bad as everyone says it is?
