Wrestlers with physiques so shredded and massive they could have been a bodybuilder in an alternate life.

THIS OR THAT WITH JESSENIA VICE – takes two highly debated fitness topics and compares them to determine the best solution for maximizing your bodybuilding lifestyle. The best part? We let you decide the winner to be announced by Jessenia the following week. We raise the facts, you choose the champion. New episodes every Thursday!

While pro wrestlers need to keep in shape – they don’t need to focus on their physique in the same a bodybuilder does. This is mostly because wrestlers are focusing more on functional strength. Also a good chunk of wrestling is scripted (though that doesn’t mean they don’t need to perform some amazing acrobatics or athletic moves). The closest connection you can make between bodybuilding and wrestling is that the athletes mostly work in bikinis and tiny trunks. That’s what makes the few wrestlers with actual shredded or massive physiques so impressive. It’s not necessary but they build up their body anyways.

That’s why this week we picked the top 5 best wrestling physiques, break them down, and then let YOU decide where they rank. Check out the full episode above and don’t forget to vote in the YouTube video comments!



  1. Batista is number 1 by far if your talking bodybuilding physique, some of those guys were just big ya but not ripped and big, Batista was 6’5” 290-315… But definitely forgot about Bobby Lashley!!! That dude was jacked!

  2. Superstar Billy Graham back in his prime deserves a mention… Road Warriors & The Warlord also looked quite impressive. Hercules Hernandez nothing to sneeze at either. When you have lists like this, deserving people are always going to get left off.
