While there are some well-known celebrity wrestling fans like Freddie Prinze Jr or Bad Bunny, who worked in the business, there are plenty of others that wrestling fans do not know about, as their support of professional wrestling may have gone under the radar in comparison to others.

10 Timothee Chalamet

Timothee Chalamet is one of the biggest upcoming names in the Hollywood industry, being part of some fantastic movies over the years. But it was his role in the hit film Dune that led to the world finding out about his love of professional wrestling.

He was cast alongside Batista, and Chalamet made it clear he grew up a huge fan of the Animal and the work that he put in. The young actor watched him when he was young, and his love of wrestling was clear to see, as he admitted it was surreal to then be working with him.


9 Jack Whitehall

Jack Whitehall is mainly known as a comedian in the United Kingdom, but he is quickly making a name for himself as an actor as well. He recently got a major role in The Jungle Cruise movie, where he got the chance to act alongside The Rock, which was no doubt a thrill for him.
