Whenever people talk about the explosion of reality television over the last 10 years on television, it’s always fun to bring up professional wrestling. They’ll tell you that it’s fake, it’s scripted and that nobody really gets hurt...just like most reality shows.
Ever since the Kardashian clan was introduced to us almost 10 years ago on the first episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the world has been obsessed with what this family of mostly beautiful brunette models is doing 24-hours-per-day, 365-days-a-year and the family obliges. Not all of their TV is good, but they produce so much of it it would be hard to always get it right, just like professional wrestling.
People might point to wrestling and talk about the crazy stories told and how that can’t be compared to real life, but let’s look at the Kardashians. The patriarch of the family, who was the lawyer for the most notorious celebrity murder case of all time dies, so the mother remarries an Olympic gold medalist and continues to have gorgeous daughters. Once they’re old enough, one of the daughters - who is best friends with the world’s biggest debutante reality star at the time - makes a sex tape and becomes famous overnight. Once fame hits the family the daughters start marrying (and in some cases, divorcing and remarrying) famous athletes and celebrities. And the husband/dad? He’s now going to transition into being a woman very publicly.
If the Kardashians aren’t the perfect family to be in a wrestling storyline, we can’t think of a better one. Sometimes wrestlers get hurt and sometimes the Kardashians do scripted things. Who can tell what’s real or fake anymore? Either way, they both entertain us and there are certain similarities between certain wrestlers and certain Kardashians, and with that in mind, we give you 15 Kardashians that remind us of professional wrestlers.
15 Khloe Kardashian - Molly Holly
Khloe Kardashian seems like the most down-to-earth sister in the Kardashian clan. She has a decent body, but her sense of humor and warmth are the two characteristics where she stands head and shoulders above anybody else on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. She’s a hopeless romantic who simultaneously cares the least and the most about what people think about her.
14 Damon Thomas - Xavier Woods
While the world was abuzz with Kim Kardashian’s weddings to Kris Humphries and Kanye West, most people don’t realize those are actually her second and third weddings. She was first married at the age of 20 to record producer Damon Thomas. You’ve not seen nor heard about him on KUWTK because he’s slammed Kim in most interviews. But, he is pretty big in the music world, having worked with Justin Timberlake, Lionel Richie, R. Kelley and dozens of other R&B heavyweights. Instead of being remembered as a musical genius, he’s going to be remembered as the husband of Kim K.
13 Kourtney Kardashian - Stacy Keibler
12 Lamar Odom - Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts
This is the case of two dynamic athletes who couldn’t control their demons and how their lives spun dramatically out of control. Odom’s issues with substance abuse became very public to anyone who doesn’t follow basketball or watch Keeping Up with The Kardashians, following the recent incident of him being rushed to a hospital after collapsing at a Nevada brothel.
11 Kris Humphries - Daniel Bryan
10 Scott Disick - Dolph Ziggler
Scott Disick is best known as the commitment-phobic sometimes-current, sometimes-ex boyfriend of Kourtney Kardashian. He’s a good looking guy with his hand in many businesses, but none of them have been very successful. Despite his problems, he’s still generally liked by viewers of the show because he’s a relatable guy who serves as the everyman in a sea of absurdity.
9 Robert Kardashian - Vince McMahon
8 Rob Kardashian - Don Muraco
7 Kylie Jenner - Brie Bella
6 Kendall Jenner - Nikki Bella
5 Brody Jenner - Every Forgotten Member of The Spirit Squad
4 Caitlyn Jenner - Pat Patterson
3 Kanye West - R-Truth
2 Kris Jenner - Vickie Guerrero
1 Kim Kardashian - Trish Stratus
Big breasts, pretty face, great hair and a charisma that forces you to stare even if you try to convince yourself you don’t like the woman. The love affair the world has with Kim Kardashian is very similar to the one wrestling fans had with fitness model turned Diva Trish Stratus for so many years. Upon first glance, both women appear to be the vapid type of person often found with people who look like that, but both Kim and Trish know how to the play the dumb girl act, all the while cashing in. The entire Kardashian empire is built around, and because of, Kim, much the way the Divas division over the last 15 years is largely the work of Trish Stratus mixing beauty with talent. Both of these women excelled in their fields and deserved it.
