10 Sets of Wrestlers Who Appeared on Television Shows

Wrestlers often branch out into guest TV roles. Some shows have actually managed to gave multiple wrestlers appear during their run.

Pro wrestlers working with WWE are, for all intents and purposes, TV celebrities. But still, it is always fun to see pro wrestlers pop up in other TV shows; like a bizarre crossover that fans never knew they needed. It is always cool to see wrestlers get the chance to do something a little different, even if it is just for one episode or a short guest-starring run.

Over the years, several wrestlers have made forays into television programming, but there have been multiple instances where wrestlers have made an appearance on the same TV show, occasionally even together.

10. That '70s Show: The Rock, Ken Shamrock & The Hardys

That '70s Show is one of television's most beloved sitcoms. Not only was it absolutely hilarious, especially in its early seasons, but it also perfectly captured the vibe and aesthetic of the decade.

One entire episode revolved around the gang traveling to go see a wrestling show. Pro wrestling fans were treated to some familiar faces. Ken Shamrock and The Hardys both made appearances, in addition to The Rock, who played his own father, the legendary Rocky Johnson. It was tons of fun to see The Brahma Bull pay homage to his father, and a young Matt and Jeff briefly working a match in the ring.

9. Saturday Night Live: The Rock, Triple H, Mick Foley & Big Show

The Rock has made a few Saturday Night Live appearances over the course of his career, but mostly after he stepped away from the ring and pursued a career in Hollywood. However, back in 2000, he hosted an episode of SNL with musical guest AC/DC, ahead of WrestleMania 2000.

In his opening monologue, Triple H, Mick Foley, and Big Show all made cameos, entertaining the fans in attendance, while hyping up the main event of the biggest pro wrestling show of the year. The appearance gave the performers a chance to cut loose and just have a little fun in Studio 8H.
