Because all anyone is talking about these days is Star Wars, we thought we’d have a little fun with it. Since WWE does run their own film division, we decided to imagine what it would be like if Vince McMahon got it in his head one day to re-make the original Star Wars trilogy (only the originals, because even Vince knows nobody cares about the prequels), casting his WWE Superstars in important roles? Sure, it’ll probably never happen (unless Disney somehow manages to completely destroy the Star Wars license somehow), but can’t you just see the possibilities?
12. Vince McMahon as Emperor Palpatine
We figured we’d get the most obvious casting choice out of the way first, because there’s no way Vince doesn’t get the role of twisted old man who wants to rule the galaxy, no matter how many people have to suffer along the way. It’s the part he was born to play, baby! Frankly, he’d probably demand the part anyway. We’d just have to make sure he didn’t re-write the script at the last minute to have him kick everyone in the balls and strut away victorious.
