The Rock and John Cena

We all know how time changes people, but how much can you change in only 20 years? Let’s take a look at these world-renowned wrestling champions and see how awkward they looked in their high-school years.

We covered the Wrestling legends in a previous article and we’ll mostly see embarrassing photos of these iconic wrestlers: http://6toplists.com/most-iconic-wrestlers-of-all-time/ but not only.

Bill Goldberg

Far from the scary look that he’s got nowadays, Bill looks rather peaceful and happy.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

Although not featured in our main wrestling article, The Rock is still a legend, both in the wrestling world as well as in the movies’ world.

Dwayne The Rock Johnson

When The Rock shared this amazing high-school photo with his fans on Instagram, he added: “I was 6’4 225lbs, rockin’ a dead caterpillar on my lip (aka the porn ‘stache) and all the kids in every high school thought I was an undercover cop cause I looked like a mutated, yet handsome SOB of a man child.”

Hulk Hogan

Hogan, the wrestler that went on and become a symbol for America, a designated good-guy looks totally like NOT a wrestler in his younger years. He looked like a calm and simple man, definitely not one that would scream his lungs out. Gotta say though, love the mutton chops!

John Cena

Not much has changed with John Cena since his high-school years. He definitely looked like a winner back then, as he looks now!

Randy Savage

Not looking Savage at all, Randy Macho Man Savage looks uncomfortably weird without his full-grown beard, right? His high-school photo doesn’t seem to bring justice to the Macho Man persona either, but who knows how he was like back then?

A true legend, Randy Savage, although passed away still remains in our hearts and minds: http://6toplists.com/randy-savage/.

Ric Flair

The wrestler that keeps on wrestling, Ric Flair. We had a hard time finding this high-school photo of him, seeing as how he’s 66 years old at the moment. We give you the “Nature Boy”:

Shawn Michaels

Awkward or not, we have to admit Shawn Michaels didn’t look that bad in his younger years. Seems like the Heartbreak Kid nickname fits him quite well:

Stone Cold Steve Austin

With a warm smile and bright blonde hair, you wouldn’t even guess that this guy’s the Stone Cold Steve Austin of today’s wrestling:

The Undertaker

Looking kind of odd, The Undertaker’s old self from his high-school years had this creepy “goes-through-your-soul” look that made him the famous Wrestler he is today.

Vince McMahon

The one that would rule them all. Does this innocent-looking guy look like one that would own a wrestling empire?

That’s what we figured as well. So there you have it, the most embarrassing photos of Pro-Wrestlers for your entertainment only!
