In a new video by Screen Rant, host Rob Flis points out ten professional wrestlers who have appeared in popular movies. Rob features Hulk Hogan‘s appearance in Gremlins 2: The New Batch, Kevin Nash playing the part of Super Shredder in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze, and more.

Some of the greatest legends of wrestling found their way into Hollywood films… and still, nobody noticed.
