It’s not uncommon for wrestlers to transition from the ring to Hollywood’s red carpets. The Rock, John Cena, Batista, and Roddy Piper are just a few of the pro wrestling greats who went on to become household names in Hollywood.
A number of active WWE wrestlers have also begun to establish themselves in Hollywood. Roman Reigns, the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, made an appearance in the Fast and the Furious movie series, Sasha Banks was cast in Disney’s Mandalorian series, and the Miz hosted or made an appearance on a number of game shows. Bianca Belair, the Raw Women’s Champion, has since expressed interest in joining them.
The EST Takes The MCU?
Bianca was recently questioned by Comicbook about her claimed desire in playing the weather-controlling mutant Storm from the X-Men in the MCU. Fightful has offered the following transcription of her response:
Oh 100%. I would adore to enter the movie industry and play Storm, who is such a powerful and great character. I sincerely hope that Hollywood is prepared for a strong, powerful, and muscly woman to enter the scene; if they are, then that would be me. I’m only awaiting a call; I’m all set. Brittany Belair
