10 Best Times Wrestlers Appeared In Horror Movies

Who needs blading when you can fake it the Hollywood way?

Wrestling and horror movies go hand in hand. With both glorifying ridiculous violence, overtly campy characters, and as many cheesy one-liners as possible, it's no wonder that so many members of the WWE elite took the initiative to head to the big screen; with horror movies in particular providing free reign to seriously capitalise on the ultimate spooky gimmick. The Undertaker better watch his back.

Whether its appearing as a hulking, unstoppable creation or just as your average movie-going Gremlin lover, there's plenty of intersect between moonsaults and monsters. And with the popularity of both niches continuously growing, it seems only right to mix in your Gangrels with your Nosferatus for something deliciously self-aware.

CM Punk himself is set to appear in the David Cronenberg reboot Rabid soon after all, so it feels apt to reflect on the ghosts of wrestling past that made scary movies all the more terrifying in the run up to his debut. From Scooby Doo and the Wrestlemania Mystery to Pro Wrestlers Vs Zombies, there's something for everyone in this bizarrely specific sub-genre of movie.

They're the films you never knew you needed wrapped up in lovely B-Movie packaging.
