Charlotte Flair is the latest WWE superstar to prepare for a movie. Since losing her title to Rhea Ripley at WrestleMania 39, Flair has not appeared on WWE programming. Meanwhile, Liv Morgan, who is currently injured, will also appear in the new movie with Charlotte.
She talks about beating Mickie James for the IMPACT Knockouts Championship, tag team wrestling, having no friends in wrestling, and much more on WhatCulture.
The world of professional wrestling has a lot of stories that are not known to most people. These stories deserve more recognition, which will change how people look at the wrestling industry. Women’s wrestling pioneer Mildred Burke’s biography is one such story being brought to the big screen right now.
A WWE Hall of Famer, June Byers, will be portrayed by Charlotte Flair, according to Sean Ross Sapp from Fightful Select. In addition, Liv Morgan will play Clara Mortensen in the movie, while Emily Bett Rickards will portray Mildred Burke. The announcement of the news left fans very excited.
It is based on the award-winning biographical novel, “The Queen of the Ring.” Filming is expected to begin in Louisville, Kentucky, next month. Charlotte Flair and Liv Morgan have moved on to greater things since their departure from WWE.
Besides Flair and Morgan, wrestlers like Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch are also working to appear on the silver screen. Rollins was recently seen on the set of Captain America: New World Order. On Young Rock, Lynch plays Cyndi Lauper, a fictional character based on the life of Dwayne Johnson.
WWE and Hollywood’s History
From WWE to Hollywood, The Rock, and John Cena are the biggest stars (via Twitter).
For WWE fans, the association with Hollywood is nothing new. The two industries have frequently crossed paths, starting with Wrestlemania 1. A major show produced by WWE featured mainstream artists such as Cyndi Lauper, Liberace, Mr. T, Muhamed Ali, and many others. Celebrities often followed the same pattern.
The WWE has featured famous personalities such as Snoop Dogg, Kim Kardashian, Donald Trump, and William Shatner over the years. Bad Bunny and Logan Paul have recently joined the list with their spectacular performances. By partnering with these stars, WWE has been able to gain mainstream attention for its product and expand its fan base.
However, WWE wrestlers also achieved fame and success in Hollywood. The Rock, Dave Batista, John Cena, and others contributed to the tradition with successful careers in both fields. Superstars like Rowdy Roddy Piper and Hulk Hogan initiated the tradition. All three actors have been working on new movies and show lately, including Seth Rollins, Becky Lynch, and Sasha Banks (Mercedez Mone).
