The Best Celebrity Wrestlers Ever: Logan Paul, David Arquette and More

Best Celebrity Wrestlers of All Time

Many of wrestling’s biggest moments have come from entertaining celebrity cameos. Who could forget Cyndi Lauper’s appearance at WWE’s first WrestleMania, managing Wendi Richter, who went on to regain the Women’s Championship that night? Or that time Jay Leno feuded with WCW’s Hulk Hogan and Eric Bishoff, and the latter duo tried to take over The Tonight Show?

Whether it was Aretha Franklin singing “America the Beautiful” at WrestleMania 3, or the Muppets popping up backstage during a 2011 episode of Monday Night Raw, stars of different backgrounds have left their indelible mark on the squared circle — so much so, that WWE introduced a celebrity wing of its Hall of Fame with the 2004 induction of former MLB All-Star and manager Pete Rose.

We could talk until we’re blue in the face about all the stars who’ve dropped by for a fun-filled appearance, but we’d rather just narrow it down to those who went the extra mile and fought in the ring. With the focus on the top in-ring performers, that eliminates celebs like Snoop Dogg (who performed Sasha Banks’ theme at WrestleMania 24) and Muhammad Ali (who performed referee duties at WrestleMania 1).

Read on for our list of the best celebrity wrestlers of all time (in no particular order) and let us know your thoughts and suggestions in the comments.
