20 Best Celebrity Appearances In WWE

Professional wrestling was viewed by the rest of the entertainment business for a long time as a circus sideshow. In fact, except for the lowest-ranking celebrities, the wrestling industry has generally been despised and avoided.

When pro wrestling debuted on the mainstream stage in the 1980s, everything was different. Vince McMahon, Jr. was mostly responsible for this adjustment. The first adjustment he made to the industry was to change the previous “regional” model. To link the worlds of sports entertainment and music, Vince McMahon Jr. also contacted the newly launched cable network MTV.

The gamble paid off, with millions tuning in to see the War to Settle the Score, between Hulk Hogan and Rowdy Roddy Piper. The match also involved rocker Cyndi Lauper and 1980s icon Mr. T.

Following that, numerous celebrities were either approached by WWE or sought out the company on their own.

Here are some of WWE’s greatest guest stars throughout the company’s history. To discover more, continue reading!
