Another guy who used to play college hoops but started playing basketball was Sting.

"Steve attended a Junior College in California, the College of Canyons, where he played basketball. Steve has stated that he should have played football, as it was what he was best at. However, Steve still likes to play hoops when he gets a chance. "

And yeah, Nash played for Vols and Big Show played for Wichita State...

I just read the Byte This recap, where I believe it said both Billy and Chuck came from a basketball background.

Slam Dunk played for UCLA I believe. I am not 100% percent sure about the school (more like 98%), but I am positive she played in the Pac-10. I know this from a radio interview.

I believe Horace Grant would have made a decent wrestler ... If I remember correctly, he did an interview with "Slam" Magazine (or maybe it was "Inside Stuff" Magazine? Can't remember) where the entire article consisted of his thoughts on the Undertaker and his ability to "command respect" in the ring ... And this was way back in the pre-Ministry days, too.

No one remembers Sir Charles? It was one of the Godfather's pre-Papa Shango WWF gimmicks. Street-ball player, if I remember correctly. Didn't work.

Actually a bunch of WCW guys said Karl Malone seemed like a natural in the ring- he picked up the little things easily. If you go back and watch his match, he's easily better than Lita or Essa Rios.

I hope you're kidding. Sir Charles was a BUTLER.

Also, he never made it to TV, only working dark matches at Superstars and Challenge tapings.

Mark Jindrak's gimmick was that he was banned from playing in the NCAA for having been suspended too many times for unruly play. He even used to come to the ring with a basketball.

I know that Shaquille O'Neal (then of the Orlando Magic) accompanied Hulk Hogan to the ring for his first WCW World Title victory back in 1994. I'm uncertain whether or not he actually got into the ring and wrestled, though.

A lot of people don't seem to remember this, but Dennis Rodman's association with Hulk Hogan actually went back a couple of years farther back than when Rodman became a member of the nWo. Rodman, wearing the red and yellow, got physically involved in Hogan's cage match title defense against Vader at Bash at the Beach 1995. He prevented (I believe it was) Kevin Sullivan from interfering in the match. Actually grabbed a chair and threatened Sullivan, if I remember correctly.

Grozit, if Rodman had threatened Sullivan in 1997, he almost certainly would've come out the worse for wear. Many was the time that year when Sullivan and Jacqueline would mercilessly beat the living hell out of some nameless jobber. Sullivan's "wrestling" style more closely resembled street fighting than actual wrestling. He was one dude that I didn't want mad at me.

2)Small, speedy guys. They would have the balance and agility to perform in the ring, but these guys are for the most part pretty small.

These guys are small for Basketball players. For regular people they're really big. For Pro-Wrestling I'd say they're normal.

An average point guard is probably 6'2" 200. 2-guards or small forwards, who aren't exactly big lumbering lugs, are 6-6 to 6-8. That's taller than the average wrestler.

While they do tend to be skinnier than wrestlers, some more time in the weight room should take care of that. I mean, nobody's born with Brock Lesnar's body.
