For many, it is easy to see WWE Superstars as just wrestlers. But this is not to say that all of them have wrestled or trained as wrestlers for their entire life.
A common previous career for WWE wrestlers is that in the world of sport. In the past, Randy Savage played for the Minor League Cincinnati Reds affiliate in baseball, with WWE icon Goldberg also playing for the Atlanta Falcons in the NFL for three years.
When we remember WWE Superstars started out as average people just like you and I, to find out some of their ex-working establishments is interesting to say the least.
High flying wrestling sensation Kofi Kingston for example, began his working life in a place a lot less adrenaline-fuelled as WWE; Staples. The now world-famous wrestler was responsible for supplying people with the catalogues selling pens and paper.
Brodus Clay's previous role before joining WWE is not necessarily a surprising one, but who he worked for is most interesting.
Years ago he was spotted breaking up a fight in a bar and was hired by none other than hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg to become his bodyguard.
His in-ring name is a tribute to the rapper, as Clay borrowed Snoop's real surname of Brodus to use during his wrestling career.
In a more academic role, England-born Wade Barrett was studying for a degree in marine biology prior to deciding to become a professional wrestler.
After this, Preston's own WWE Superstar took up a career in recruitment, but felt neither this nor his chosen University course would satisfy his drive to become a wrestler, with what he has now gone on to achieve being far from both of these.
For many WWE wrestlers, being a body builder or personal trainer was a common occurrence at some point in their life.
This is also the case for fan-favourite John Cena, but his night work as a limo driver as well may come as a big surprise to many.
It is hard to imagine Cena in his finest tuxedo driving around wealthy passengers, but he did so before eventually meeting the right person at the right time at the gym to set up his career in wrestling.
