Jericho replied “I’d say the best actor of all of them, is Bautista. I think his work and his diversity from what I have seen, I think he is the best actual actor. And then I’ll put Dwayne Johnson, Cena, and Hulk Hogan after that. Although, Santa with muscles, chef’s kiss.

Jericho ranks Dave Bautista as a better actor even though Dwayne Johnson is arguably the biggest action star in Hollywood now. Jericho feels that Bautista has diversity in his acting roles ranging from action star to a more comic role from MCU movies as Drax the Destroyer.

He later ranked Dwayne Johnson, who has featured in at least 70 movies and productions like DCEU. Hogan’s Hollywood career never reached the same peak as his wrestling career and was ranked fourth on the list. John Cena was ranked third, as he continues to establish his name in Hollywood.
