Geek to Geek Chic – Top 10 Wrestler Cameos In Music Videos

2 Jul

#10) SARAH DARLING – ‘SOMETHING TO DO WITH YOUR HANDS’ (2011)
This sweet as sugar country song see’s TNA wrestler AJ Styles as the Handyman. I would be very sad if I found out that no-one used the song title as a jibe during promos against this guy, it’s the perfect set up. 

#9) SMASHING PUMPKINS – ‘OWATA’ (2011)
What was a twelve-minute short film following two female underground wrestlers was cut down to a music video for this song by the Smashing Pumpkins. Frontman Billy Corgan is a well-known wrestling fan and this video features Shelly Martinez, Raven and Cheerleader Melissa.  

#8) SISQO & FOXY BROWN – ‘THONG SONG’ (2000)
In a song that would benefit far more from Diva cameos, instead we get Big Show looking all strong and burly like a pimp. Totally unbelievable.

#7) H2O – ‘NOTHING TO PROVE’ (2008)
The video perfectly cameos CM Punk and is an absolute BLAST!

#6) DOLLY PARTON – ‘HEADLOCK ON MY HEART’ (1987)
Dolly Parton meets Hulk Hogan in this video for her ‘love song to a wrestler’. Hogan plays ‘Starlight Starbright’, the wrestler that has Parton weak at the knees and walking down the aisle. Fucking hilarious.

#5) TIMBALAND & THE HIVES – ‘THROW IT ON ME’ (2007)
With Sin City visuals, Throw It On Me see’s WWE Divas (at that point past and present) Kelly Kelly, Layla and Brooke Adams take on Torrie Wilson, Maryse Ouellet and Ashley Massaro.

#4) GET CAPE. WEAR CAPE. FLY – ‘THE REAL McCOY’ (2012)
Beautifully shot in black and white, the video for The Real McCoy features TNA wrestlers Austin Aries and Alex Shelley going against each other in the ring.

#3) STUCK MOJO – ‘RISING’ (1998)
This energentic video for rap-metal group Stuck Mojo’s 1998 release Rising has World Championship Wrestling all over it. Not only was it played on WCW Monday Nitro considerably, the video features Diamond Dallas Page, The Flock and Raven.

#2) WYCLEF JEAN – ‘IT DOESN’T MATTER’ (2000)
Based on The Rock’s famous catchphrase at the time, It Doesn’t Matter not only featured the wrestler on vocals but helped to launch him to stellar capacities.

#1) CYNDI LAUPER – ‘GOONIES ‘R’ GOOD ENOUGH’ (1985)
Cyndi Lauper’s title track for Richard Donner’s The Goonies features a bunch of 80s World Wrestling Federation legends including Roddy Piper, Freddie Blessie, Nikolai Volkoff, The Iron Sheik, The Fabulous Moolah, Captain Lou Albano, Wendy Richter and Andre The Giant. Part of the ‘Rock N Wrestling Connection’, Albano would star in a total of four of Lauper’s music videos (this, Time After Time, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun and She Bop) whilst Lauper herself was involved in an 80s storyline featuring Richter and Moolah after appearing on Piper’s Pit.
