Professional wrestlers are athletes — we won't argue that. But they are also actors.

No wonder they tend to turn up in television and movies more than other sports heroes. The '80s and '90s were the golden era of the WWF, when wrestlers with colorful personalities and costume slapped each other around in the ring. Wrestlemania made them stars, leading to cartoons, toys and even ice cream bars.

Just take the following TV cameos, for example. Wrestlers turned up in sitcoms, action shows and late night — even some H&I shows. See if you can name them all!
