The primary job of a sportsperson is to entertain their fans through their sublime sporing skills. However, some even associate themselves with the entertainment industry, to engage their fans even more, while their popularity sky-rockets.
However, some are bold enough to join the industry of adult entertainment, thereby making them even popular, while it also somewhat tarnishes their image. In the same light, we take a look at five renowned sportspersons who featured in porn, as well as other forms of adult entertainment.
Renee Gracie: The Australian supercar driver was recently in the headlines for having ventured into the adult industry. She did so after she had a string of poor run, since 2017, in the supercar racing, while the pandemic this year saw her entering into a financial turmoil. As a result, she began sharing her nude images on a subscription-based website, while it eventually ended her economic distress. "I pretty much do everything. I do whatever it is people request. I sell those photos and people tip me. I have been able to pay for a house. I have a 30-year loan that I am about to pay off in 12 months," she had told Daily Telegraph.
Tammy Sytch (Sunny): A former professional wrestler who was associated with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), she went on to become a Hall of Famer in 2011. Although she had already featured in nude photoshoots for adult magazines, like Playboy and adult website Wrestling Vixxxens, it was in 2016 when she in a porn film, titled Sunny Side Up: In Through the Backdoor.
X-Pac: Another former WWE superstar, X-Pac, who was a prominent member of renowned WWE stable, DX, made some surprise appearances in homemade sex videos alongside his former girlfriend and fellow WWE Superstar, Chyna. The videos were titled 1 Night in China and Another Night in China. He was also involved in drugs along with her but cleaned his lifestyle later. He continues to have a good relationship with WWE, even after his retirement.
Chyna: Speaking of X-Pac's former girlfriend, Chyna had to part ways with WWE at the peak of her career, owing to differences with the hierarchies. Nonetheless, she decided to pursue porn, as she had a successful career. She did as many as six adult movies and even won a couple of awards for the same.
Hulk Hogan: Seems like the WWE Superstars have a tendency to feature in the world of adults. WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan, too, happens to be a surprise member of this list. Although he did not do it intentionally, it was in 2012 when his sex-tape, with Bubba the Love Sponge's estranged wife, went viral, which somewhat tarnished his image, as well as his relationship with WWE. In 2016, he sued Gawker media for releasing the footage and even won a $115 million lawsuit.
