Did you know that Sasha Banks is a cousin of Snoop Dogg? This means she already has one foot in Hollywood. ‘The Boss‘ is one of the most beloved wrestlers in WWE and her promo ability is nothing short of brilliant. Her ability to deliver convincing promos every single time makes us believe she will be well fitted in Hollywood. Plus, she has her good looks to back up her acting skills.

#4 Alexa Bliss

The Wicked Witch of WWE‘ has proven to the world that she can do more than just wrestle. Her character in WWE has been well received by the fans only because of how well Bliss has pulled it off. We don’t think any other wrestler could have managed to do the same on the level Bliss has. The acting skills, capped with amazing promo ability, makes Alexa Bliss one of the top contenders for a big break in Hollywood.

#3 John Morrison

John Morrison definitely has the looks to be a top Hollywood actor. His promo ability is great as well. Morrison has already portrayed many gimmicks throughout his wrestling career and we think he will be a perfect fit in Hollywood. Not just that, his ability to do stunts on his own will be a major bonus for any movie. Maybe The Miz can talk him up.

#2 Seth Rollins

The Architect‘ is blessed with good looks as well as terrific promo ability. What more could he ask for? Maybe a lead role in a Hollywood movie would be great. Well, we surely think he can pull it off. Rollins has portrayed many characters during his time in WWE and we think it has prepared him for movies. If you ask us, we think Rollins can play a great negative role in any movie.
