Top 15 Incredible Real Life Wrestling Heroes

No matter how much Vince McMahon fills wrestling with more and more aspects of sports entertainment, wrestling is still at its core about good vs.. bad. The lines might blur occasionally, but fans usually know just who to cheer and who to jeer.

The WWE has the ability to make stars. They have been making men and women seem larger than life for decades now. We’ve had heroes to look up to like Hulk Hogan, The Ultimate Warrior, and Bret Hart. These competitors and others have performed feats within a 20 by 20 ring that have astounded and inspired fans. While beer baths, zip line entrances, celebratory pose downs, and running down to the ring at Mach–10 are fantastic sights from an entertainment perspective, some of these superstars are real life heroes, too.

Unlike the scripts they follow, anyone on the roster past or present can step up and become a hero. You don’t need bookers to be in your corner or fans to create grass roots campaigns for you, you just need the heart and desire of a person who wants to do real good in the world. Every so often, a superstar will be put in the position to be bigger than the star they play on TV and do something to make a difference in the real world. Here are some of the biggest.

Several years ago, a video of a man named Arthur appeared online. A retired Gulf War vet who was disabled and gained a lot of weight was told he’d never walk again. One yoga instructor decided to believe in Arthur–Diamond Dallas Page. The vet began to believe in himself again and lost over 100 lbs and became a spokesman for DDP Yoga. On top of that, not only can he walk, but he can move better than people half his age.

“Let’s Go Cena! Cena Sucks!” rings throughout the arena whenever Cena emerges during a WWE event. However, for the millions of children afflicted with fatal illnesses, they all follow Cena’s mantra of “Never Give Up.” Many of these children make one of their wishes to meet John Cena and Cena, even the briefest of moments, is able to make them feel like the superhero eh portrays on TV. Cena spends just about every waking moment eating, sleeping, and breathing WWE. When he’s not doing that, he’s the Make A Wish record holder for granting over 400 wishes. Cena Sucks? Try lacing his high tops.
