Hey everyone! It's "The Wrestling Classic" Justin here with another article for On37PM. This time I won't be doing a traditional ranking; this one will be about some of the most memorable celebrity appearances in professional wrestling. There have been a plethora of celebrity appearances throughout the last four decades so I may forget to mention some memorable names, but I did my best to cover the ones that came to my mind first. My goal was to bring up the appearances that really made an impact or those that got physical by getting in the ring and actually competing.
Celebrity appearances like Regis Philbin, Bob Uecker, Kim Kardashian and others who just appeared for their celebrity presence to be felt on the show won't be mentioned, along with musical artists who performed on wrestling shows but did not get physical or make a direct impact when it came to on-going storylines.
I also won't be bringing up all the celebrities that appeared during the Raw Guest Host era that ran from 2009-2016 or the celebrities that have won the 24/7 Championship these past few years as those could both be their own lists respectively. Therefore, names like Bob Barker, Kevin Hart, Cedric the Entertainer, Betty White, The Muppets, Gronk, Rob Stone, Enes Kanter, Marshmello and many others won't be mentioned. There will be some crossovers though, as many celebrities who appeared as Raw Guest Hosts did more in wrestling either before or after that stint. Also big names such as Steve "Mongo'' McMichael, Ronda Rousey, and Cain Velasquez, who made their name outside of wrestling but ended up signing legitimate contracts with the company they chose to work for as talent won't be mentioned either. People who made the official crossover from another career to full-time wrestling is a list of its own. Now that we got all of that out of the way, let's go down memory lane.
