The 50 most beautiful people in sports-entertainment history

#47 Matt Striker

Stories about Matt Striker’s bumpy transition from educator to WWE Superstar often left out the fact that he was far better looking than any public school teacher should be. That was until he appeared shirtless and seductive in a 2006 feature for GQ magazine. When Striker moved to the decidedly less attractive role of announcer and commentator, it was easy to forget he once occupied the same glossy pages as Leonardo DiCaprio. But all it takes is this quote from a former student to remind you of Striker’s appeal. “I’m not going to lie,” the past pupil told GQ. “I thought he was absolutely gorgeous.” Class dismissed. — R.M.
