These days eccentric former NBA star Dennis Rodman is best known for his friendship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. However, after he was suspended from the league back in 1996, he decided to stay busy with another sport and throw himself into the wrestling ring.

He appeared in the WCW Monday Nitro, again alongside Hulk Hogan. He also joined the popular team “nWo.” He even helped Hulk Hogan win the WCW World Heavyweight Championship by hitting Lex Luger with a baseball bat. In other matches, he was even joined by fellow basketball player Karl Malone and Diamond Dallas Page in a surreal basketball player wrestler hybrid match. He stayed in and out of the ring until 2008 but has since retired.
