Acting is a very important part of WWE does. The wrestling business is like live theater. They are performers on a stage (or a ring in this case) that do their best to entertain the people in attendance. Unlike a theater, the performance is for a television audience watching at home in addition to those in the arena. There are plenty of great actors in wrestling history. The first name that comes to mind is The Rock obviously since he's gone on to become one of the most famous film actors in the world over the course of the last decade. Others that can be considered outstanding actors in WWE are men like Goldust, William Regal, Chris Jericho and the WWE Chairman himself, Vince McMahon. This topic was inspired by some of the segments from Raw this past week as WWE put on some of the most poorly acted segments in a very long time. As great as Daniel Bryan is in the ring, he's not a strong actor. He's not one of the worst ever, but it's obviously something that he struggles at. His wife Brie Bella wasn't much better with her screaming. It's pretty simple, WWE. Let the wrestlers wrestle. Putting them in poorly written acting segments does more harm than good. Nobody benefits from it. As much as we must applaud the great ones, we also must acknowledge that there have been some awful acting performances in WWE history. A reason for that is that a lot of wrestlers come from a sports background where they don't have to follow a script to perform. They look the part, but they don't know how to talk like a wrestler. That's what WWE developmental is for. It helps the wrestlers get better. Some succeed at it. Others are unable to get ahead even though they might be great in the ring. If you can't act the part, you won't be around that long. Here's a look at ten of the worst actors in WWE history.
