The top athletes in the world are usually gifted individuals who can do things that ordinary people can't. A life of dedication is required in order to create and maintain a physique that is capable of performing strenuous activity on a regular basis. Years of hard work must be put in to reach the top of any sport.
Once an athlete has finally made it to the top, he or she must remember what got them there in the first place. The years of hard work can be destroyed in a single moment.
There are many ways that an athlete can destroy his or her own career. Alcohol and drugs have ruined the lives of many athletes and celebrities over the years. While drug abuse is a serious problem, it can be defeated. However, starring in a sex tape is something that can never be erased. In fact, it's probably the worst thing that an athlete or any entertainer could ever do. With that being said, many athletes have made sex tapes over the years, and it has cost them everything.
This list of the Top 15 Athletes Who Did Adult Entertainment: Where Are They Now will show you how detrimental pornography can be to an athlete's career. Most of the athletes who made it onto this list are not doing very well at this point in their lives. But, believe it or not, some of the athletes on this list are actually doing better than ever.
15 Jessica Aguilar
Jessica Aguilar didn't actually perform in an adult film, but she did give instructions in one. Aguilar taught two women how to slap on a Darce choke correctly in a Reality Kings adult film.
Today, Jessica Aguilar is a top fighter in the UFC's Strawweight division. She recently lost to Claudia Gadelha at UFC 190, but she's expected to return to the Octagon in the near future.
Aside from being a top ranked fighter in the UFC, Aguilar is a proud leader in the LGBT community. She has been living with her girlfriend since 2012, and she seems to be very happy.
14 Kimbo Slice
Kimbo Slice is one of the most famous street fighters in history. His legendary bare knuckle brawls were captured on film and put onto the internet in the mid 2000s. It didn't take long for Kimbo to become famous on the internet. However, money didn't come easy for Kimbo, and that's why he ended up working for Reality Kings Productions.
Slice didn't perform in any of the adult scenes, but he was seen on camera. Today, Kimbo Slice is a fighter in Bellator. In fact, he is a top draw for the MMA organization. His last two fights were against Dada 5000 and Ken Shamrock. Slice won both fights by knockout, and he's expected to take on former Pride FC champion Wanderlei Silva in the near future.
Back in the early 2000s, Sean Waltman starred in a homemade sex tape with his ex-girlfriend Chyna. The video was leaked all over the internet, and it became quite popular.
During the filming of their sex tape, X-Pac and Chyna were using a lot of drugs. Thankfully, Waltman has cleaned up his lifestyle. He still smokes marijuana these days, but it's a lot better than shooting up meth through a needle.
X-Pac still shows up on WWE television from time to time. He's also a frequent guest on podcasts such as the 'Ross Report,' the 'Steve Austin Show' and 'You're Welcome! With Chael Sonnen.' He's in a much better place these days, but he can't do an interview without being asked about his sex tape.
12 Yusaf Mack
Throughout the history of boxing, there has never been an openly gay fighter. While Yusaf Mack isn't gay, he has admitted to being bisexual.
Yusaf's sexuality is something that he's always struggled with. He spent countless years lying to his family and friends, but he wasn't able to hide his secret forever. In 2015, a homosexual adult film named, 'Holiday Hump'n,' starring Yusaf was released. Yusaf had no choice but to come clean to his wife and children.
Today, Yusaf Mack is retired from the ring. He tries his best to deal with the negative press that is sent his way. No matter what though, Yusaf's main focus in life is to be a good father.
11 Yvete Bova
Yvette Bova was one of the best female bodybuilders of her time. She won a number of competitions, but she eventually found her way into the adult business in 2005. She started her own company and starred in many films from 2005 to 2010.
Today, Yvette runs her own adult website, and she still performs in adult videos from time to time. Her muscles are as big as ever, and it seems that her pornography career won't be stopping any time soon.
10 Kazuhito Tadano
Kazuhito Tadano was always a great baseball player. In fact, he was one of the best players in Japan, and it seemed that it wouldn't be long until he would become a professional. However, Tadano needed money, and that's when he decided to star in a gay pornographic film.
Kazuhito's adult video proved to be detrimental to his professional baseball career in Japan. There was not a single team interested in signing him. But, he was eventually signed to the Cleveland Indians in 2003.
Today, Kazuhito Tadano is a coach and pitcher on a Japanese semi-professional team known as the Ishikawa Million Stars. It seems that the Japanese people have finally forgiven Tadano for starring in an adult film.
9 Robert Rosenberg
Robert Rosenberg is a professional boxer, who holds a career record of 7-2. But, before Robert got into boxing, he starred in nearly 8,000 adult films.
In his prime, Robert made $50,000 a month. With that being said, it's a bit puzzling to me that Robert decided to quit his job as an adult film star to become a boxer. Most men dream about becoming an adult film star, but it seems that Rosenberg actually got bored of his profession.
8 Gergo Szabo
Gergo Szabo was an extremely talented Hungarian wrestler. He was a national champion, and he nearly made it as an Olympian. Unfortunately for Szabo, the Hungarian Wrestling Federation discovered that he had starred in several gay adult films.
Szabo performed under the stage name of Sergio Foster. The films were shot before the 2004 Olympic Games, but the Hungarian Wrestling Federation decided to ban him from competing nonetheless.
Today, Gergo Szabo has fallen into a life of relative obscurity. A simple Google search of his name brings up nothing besides his wrestling accomplishments and his adult film career.
Chyna was a huge Superstar in the WWE during the Attitude Era. She was an original member of D-Generation X, and she was also a physical specimen. Her time in the WWE was the highlight of her entertainment career.
Her first endeavor into the world of adult entertainment was with her ex-boyfriend X-Pac. The couple infamously made a celebrity sex-tape together. However, unlike X-Pac, Chyna continued making adult films, and it has ruined her chances of ever returning to the WWE.
Triple H was a guest on the second episode of the 'Stone Cold Podcast,' and Stone Cold asked him if Chyna would ever be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. Triple H said that Chyna does belong in the Hall of Fame, but the WWE can't induct her because of her adult entertainment career. With that being said, Chyna hasn't made an adult film in quite some time, and it seems that she's actually doing quite well at this point in her life. On occasion, she stars in low budget films, and believe it or not, she teaches English in Japan.
6 Lea Lexis
Lea Lexis is one of the most talented athletes on this list. Before her deep plunge into the world of hardcore, Lexis was a 5-time National Gymnastics Champion. While she was very talented in her sport of choice, it seemed that Lea enjoyed a different type of pole vaulting a whole lot more.
Lea Lexis has been nominated for several AVN awards, and it seems that her gymnastics background has helped her in her new career. In 2013, Lexis was nominated for best tease performance thanks to her role in 'Sexual Gymnastics.'
Today, Lea Lexis is a full blown adult film star, and she seems to be loving it.
5 Kai Greene
Kai Greene is one of the best bodybuilders of this era. He has come so close to winning the Mr. Olympia contest, but he hasn't managed to do so just yet.
A couple of years ago, Kai was strapped for cash. So, he decided to take an offer from MuscleHunks.com. All Greene had to do was make passionate love to a watermelon. He did as he was asked, and he was paid a fair amount of money.
Kai Greene is still chasing that elusive Mr. Olympia championship, but Phil Heath is still in his way. I believe that Kai's other endeavor was just a quick way to make some easy money. His main goal in life is to become Mr. Olympia. I don't think he's interested in making love to another watermelon, but I could be wrong.
4 War Machine
War Machine is one of the most despicable human beings to have ever competed in the sport of MMA. This psychopath was a mediocre fighter in the UFC, and he was also a mediocre performer in the world of adult entertainment.
His relationship with pornstar Christy Mack eventually led to his own career in adult entertainment. Of course, we all know what became of this lunatic. But, in case you don't, here is a refresher.
On the night of August 8, 2014, War Machine physically assaulted Christy Mack and her male friend. War Machine broke 18 bones in Mack's body, and he also knocked out her teeth and ruptured her liver.
War Machine is currently being held in the High Desert State Prison in Nevada. He is awaiting trial, which is expected to take place this summer. Most people are hoping that War Machine spends his entire life in prison.
Sunny debuted in the WWE in 1994, and she quickly became one of the top WWE Divas in the company. In 2011, Sunny was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
Today, Sunny is enjoying her new career as a celebrity adult film star. Her first film was titled, 'Sunny Side Up: In Through the Backdoor.' Previews for the adult film were released on Vivid Entertainment's main website.
Sunny made a considerable amount of money for her first flick. However, her health has not been great lately. She has been in and out of hospitals, and she recently checked into a retreat center to heal her body.
If Sunny recovers as expected, she plans on shooting more adult films in the future. In fact, she recently dared Chyna to join her in a scene.
2 Arnold Schwarzenegger
Arnold Schwarzenegger has accomplished so much in his life. In fact, he has done more in one lifetime than most people could ever dream of. Who else besides Arnold can say that he was a seven time Mr. Olympia Champion, a real estate mogul, an action superstar, and a governor?
Arnold Schwarzenegger's resume is incredible, but you can also add adult entertainer to that list. In 1977, Arnold showed off his entire body in a gay adult magazine known as 'After Dark.'
Today, Arnold Schwarzenegger is still a Hollywood hero. After his run as governor and a divorce from his wife Maria Shriver, Arnold returned to the world of acting. His latest film, 'Terminator Genisys,' was a blockbuster smash hit, and it seems that Arnold has even more up his sleeve. Schwarzenegger will be reprising his iconic role of Conan in 'The Legend of Conan,' which was recently announced by Arnold himself.
1 Hulk Hogan
Hulk Hogan is arguably the most popular WWE Superstar of all time. During his time as champion in the 1980s, Hulk Hogan was quite possibly the biggest star on the planet. While Hogan was an idol to millions of people around the world, he definitely had his faults.
In 2012, a sex-tape starring Hulk Hogan and the estranged wife of Bubba the Love Sponge made its way online. Gawker media released clips of the tape, and it wasn't long until millions of people saw it.
Hulk Hogan can also be heard using the "N" word on the tape. The scandal ruined his relationship with the WWE, and they decided to remove nearly all references of Hogan from their website.
In an interview with Howard Stern, Hogan revealed that he was emotionally crushed due to the sex-tape. The Hulkster decided to sue Gawker media for $100 million. On March 18, 2016, Hulk Hogan won the lawsuit, and he was awarded $115 million.
Hogan has since apologized for his racial slurs, and Triple H is apparently open to the idea of Hulk Hogan returning to the WWE in the near future.
