Top 5 Pro-Wrestlers born in Video games

1. Zangief (Street Fighter, Capcom vs.)

Street Fighter is a franchise that isn’t only a huge part of our childhood, but also a franchise that has aged really well and is still going strong today. Being THE wrestler in a franchise like that, it’s not hard for Zangief to take the number one spot. He is probably the most iconic and well known pro-wrestler in the virtual world. What’s not so well known is the fact that Zangief is actually based on Victor Zangiev, a Russian amatuer wrestler that made brief appearances in NJPW and WCW.
