Angle might work in a comedy. But I agree that they have a tough time standing up against legitimate actors. Rock is one of the most charismatic and talented mic workers in the history of the WWE, but he came off as a big, dumb brute in the Scorpion King. And if they think guys like HHH are gonna have better luck, a few bombs will change their minds.

Originally posted by The ShamHHH = Thor... honestly... it's one of the screenplays I've been kicking around. Michaels could play Thialfi (if you know your Norse mythology). Maybe the Big Show as Skyrmir.
VKM as Odin Brock as Baldur the Brave Bret Hart (in a comeback) as Loki Stephanie as Sif Val Venis as Frey Undertaker as Hodur Rock as Tyr Hogan as Uller And of course, Moolah as Idun And introducing...
Randy Orton as Niord
Goldie, Goldie, Goldie, my brother - mah brothuh - my strong, assertive, somewhat perverted tag team partner, Oh my brother - only in America, only in America, now can u dig THAT - suckaaaaaaaaaaa!! (Thanks to CRZ's transcription service)
NWA needs to start a film division so Don West can do...Well, anything as far as I'm concerned! Hint: He works well with long winded and emotionally charged monologues!
By the way asteroidboy, I'm still laughing at the Tom Sawyer stuff.
I RESPECT your opinion. Please respect mine. Or feel the wrath of Buddha!
Giving the 7/29 RAW match of Benoit/RVD 4 stars is like Whitney Houston calling Bobby Brown the "King of R&B." The "King of R&B"!? SHIT! Ribs and Barbecue! Rocks and Blunts! That match wasn't no four stars, just like he ain't the "King of R&B"! You ain't that high! Now, I'm not saying you're a crack-head. Just very...Crackish.

Good writing is the key to a good film. The WWE does not have for the most part good writers.
That aside, what we really need is a women-in-prison film. Molly plays the kitten-stomping taskmaster game warden, Trish the Cool-Hand type character, Stacy as the innocent waif going in for hard time, Jazz as the wizened lifer who breaks newbies. Oh yeah.

Wrestlers belong in movies as much as actors belong in the wrestling ring. In other words - if they appear it's gotta be very short. Like Drew Carey in the Rumble or the Rock in the Mummy (NOT the Scorpion King).
There are exceptions of course, and his name is Andre the Giant in Princess Bride.
Mike Knox to Smackdown. Ezekiel Jackson to ECW. Nikki Bella to RAW. I really feel for the moderators running the live chat on WWE Universe.com. They're doing their best to make this stuff interesting in kayfabe. Especially Howard Finkel.
