WWE stars have a history of transitioning from the squared circle to Hollywood.
Just look at Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
He made a name for himself in WWE, becoming the biggest star of the Attitude Era in the late 90s and early 2000s.
But now, Johnson is one of the biggest movie stars on the planet and was the highest-paid actor in the world last year, earning $89.4 million in 2019.
Others have followed The Rock’s path to Hollywood too – John Cena and Batista being two of the most obvious.
Now, it seems two more WWE stars are in line to crack the silver screen.
According to Wrestling News, Becky Lynch and Roman Reigns are getting television and movie offers.
One source told the website that at least two directors would be interested in casting the Raw Women’s Champion in big movie projects, because of her ability to connect with a crowd.
Dave Meltzer also noted on WOR that a big national women’s magazine is preparing for a major feature on Lynch and others in the entertainment world are interested in her.
Interestingly, Becky’s Twitter presence has been helping her gain attention from the right people in the industry – and she’s not the only one being touted for a Hollywood career.
Reigns is also getting offers. He is set to appear in David Spade’s movie titled ‘The Wrong Missy’.
That’s set to premiere on Netflix on May 13 and Reigns has interest from Hollywood producers for other projects too.
There’s a feeling that Reigns has his foot in the door after his role in Hobbs and Shaw and many believe he has the look of a star who will come off well on TV.
If Reigns and Lynch choose to take more Hollywood projects, they could start working more limited WWE schedules in future – similar of course, to what a few before them have done.
