When we think about WWE superstars – a well build physique, chiseled chest, endless abs, staunch stance, are some of the things that usually make up their persona for us. Over the years, WWE has glammed up enough to catch the eyeballs of many and become a mainstream sport. Undoubtedly, a WWE wrestler’s look is the core source of attraction towards this feisty game.
It is really important that the in-ring personality of these wrestlers is heavy and attractive. Be it John Cena’s punk denim shorts or Macho Man’s fringe, the image of legendary wrestlers we have in our mind is fixed and it would be simply odd to imagine them look something else or anything different.
WWE also ensures that the wrestlers stay in their character – from clothes too, build-up, physique, hairstyle, and costumes, everything has to be in larger than life essence so that these superstars can feel more empowered about themselves and the fear they carry in their opponent’s mind.
But there was a time when these WWE superstars used to lead a regular life. Before stepping into the wrestling arena, wrestlers are given ample opportunity at The WWE Performance Center to build more muscle and change their appearance and enhance their physique as much as possible.
These WWE superstars were just like you and me before fame hit them. From the nerdy look to boyish charm, it is pretty much impossible to identify these wrestlers from their old-school pictures. Most of them have grown to such strong personalities that it is really difficult to draw a comparison between their younger self and their current look.
