well ther's no problem about this because it's just amarketing method for erning money the fallen stars.The only reason for a star to do that it's because he runned out of money and he need's to pay hi's bill's,or simply because he needs the love of the peaple but this is very rare. ========================

I think wrestlers should branch out as much as possible. Wrestling is a tough job and so hard on the body and on their families. If they can branch out writing, acting, or whatever, it gives them something to fall back on if wrestling ends (due to injury or other reasons). Most wrestlers have other things going on. They own gyms or other businesses, restaurants, whatever. They know wrestling could end for them at any time and want to be financially secure. I think The Rock is great and am glad he has done so well. I miss him in wrestling but certain people walked all over him and gave him a ton of grief (jealousy) in WWE and he is better off acting. The books, many are written under WWE contract meaning WWE had a ghost writer help and someone edit the book to leave out whatever WWE didn't want us to know. Mick Foley, Chris Jericho, Bret Hart, and some others have written books away from WWE and with no censoring. Those are the books to read for the real scoops! Anyway, I think all the workers (male and female) should do what they can to ensure that they have a way to make a living if wrestling isn't cutting it or they become injured.

I have seen several of the Rocks movies, and have enjoyed them all. I read Mick Foleys book and it was pretty good. I think wrestlers should find other jobs, if they are able to. Wrestling is a hard tough life, with lots of times debilitating injuries. I say good for them

Since the days of Hulk Hogan the wrestling stars have been in movies. Today more of them are into the movies. Given the number of deaths in the wrestling fraternity in the recent times, I do not blame them for looking elsewhere for opportunities and cashing in on their market value. I myself like the Rock movies that I have seen. Cheers! Ram

Why now...the wrestling is commerce, so the wrestlers are like the models -they try to sell them better. You see a model becoming actress, singer...this is just market and if they are customers for it -you can sell.

I think they should branch out as models do when they get older or athletes who become coaches when they get too old to play. Anything's better than geting your head bashed in on a regular basis, even if it is mostly fake.

I think wrestling is a stepping stone for the superstars to be known worldwide...just to think what happen to "The Rock", he pursue his acting career and this move made him successful...

Well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...Wrestling is a drama itself!!!...and most of the matches are scripted.....and stories of fights b/w wrestlers are also creations of the creative team....this all entertainment....as its logo says!!!!! The wrestlers are more actors than wrestler!!!!!And all they are do is entertain ppl!!!!!.... So I believe there is nothing wrong in doing movies!!!!!... The best movies of the wrestlers I have seen are The Scorpion King and The Condemded!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
