WrestleMania is just a day away and millions of WWE fans will tune into Pay-Per-View to watch the biggest matches of the year and appearances by celebrities like Maria Menounos, who will be competing in the women's match. Celebs competing in wrestling events is nothing new. Donald Trump, Hugh Jackman, and Snooki have all stepped into the squared circle in recent years against top WWE superstars, but their performances have been average to subpar. Here's a list of celebrities who would probably fare better in the ring and make great wrestlers:

Metta World Peace

'Dancing With The Stars' Finale Crowns J.R. Martinez The Hero Of The Ballroom

JR Martinez Wins 'Dancing With The Stars'
So last night ‘Dancing With The Stars’ crowned a new champion for it’s thirteenth season, and it was an outcome that I wouldn’t have predicted. Then again, I feel like I’ve been swinging back and forth all season, so it’s nothing new.

After Monday night’s show, Rob held onto the top spot, and I really hoped he would hang onto it. Here’s where the leader board stood on Monday:

1. Rob and Cheryl - 57
2. Ricki and Derek - 54
2. J.R. and Karina - 54

As usual, all the fallen stars took the stage in the first number, and it never fails to be kind of nostalgic. Which is weird, consid...

Pop superstar Cher has offered to give her injured son Chaz Bono a medical boost as he competes on TV show Dancing With The Stars - she's sending him her top doctors.

The transgender star has been showing off his fancy footwork with professional partner Lacey Schwimmer on the TV contest, but revealed last week that he had been struggling with injuries to his knees and ankles during rehearsals for the quickstep.

Bono now reveals the difficulties stem from one particularly complicated step.

He tells UsMagazine.com, "There's a step here that's very easy to miss, and several times I've lan...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Two Performances

Dancing with the Stars Week 2
Last week we rejected World Peace... or Metta, or Ron, or that guy who couldn’t dance, or whatever you want to call him. This week we’re down to eleven contestants, and the show threw two of the hardest dances at them, the jive and the quickstep. Let the dancing newbies start slow and build up, you say? Never!

Hope Solo (goalie for U.S. women’s national soccer team) & Maksim Chmerkovskiy
Dance: Jive
Scores: 6, 7, 6
Len said it was crisp and sharp, but she lost her timing a bit. Bruno said all of her power was not enough, but she had to be precise and accurate too. He said it looked li...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week One Elimination: Ron 'Metta World Peace' Artest Leaves The Dance Floor

September 21st, 2011 9:27am EDT
Ron 'Metta World Peace' Artest Leaves The Dance Floor
Who gets the boot first on DWTS? That’s the question on the minds of viewers, dancers, and stars alike going into the first elimination of the season. Well, any elimination, really, but the first one is always the worst. It’s the one where the excitement of the new season gives way to the “oh yeah, there’s a sucky part of this too.”

But before we got to the elimination show, we got an hour to “meet the cast”. Highlights included a clip of Chaz admitting he’s scared of Cheryl, Carson excitedly announcing a crush on Maks while trying on Maks’ clothes, and J.R. giving us a glimpse of his ...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week One: The Pomp And Flash Begins (Again)

Dancing with the Stars Chaz Bono, Lacey Schwimmer
Tuning in to the first night of any season of ‘Dancing With The Stars’ feels a little like the opening night of a circus. There are lots of flashy costumes, drama, and the worry that someone might fall off the high wire or have a lion confuse its tamer for a juicy steak. Only on ‘Dancing’, the fear is more about falling off the high heels or having a “star” confuse their partner with a Twister board.

It’s also the night we get to see if our presumptions about how well certain stars will do are going to go how we want them too. There are obviously late bloomers, but you usually know on n...

Dancing with the Stars
There are only 13 days left before the live unveiling of the celebrity cast of Dancing with the Stars airs on ABC August 29. That means that really juicy rumors are coming through the woodworks over who could be shaking their stuff on the dance floor for the 13th season. Here are some of the best:

Snooki, Tiffani Thiessen, and Queen Latifah were all named in the same rumor recently as shoe-ins for spots on the show. However, Queen Latifah officially said through a representative that she wasn't doing the show, putting the rest of the list in doubt. Still, we think Snooki and Tiffani are gr...
