John Cena was once puny.
Being a WWE performer can be tough, but it's also an achievement not everyone can attain. After all, good looks are not enough to enter WWE. In fact, having a strong physique does not mean you will already be picked as the next WWE World Heavyweight Champion. What matters is that you know how to perform and entertain to the extent that the entire audience becomes captivated throughout your match.
Likewise, let's take a look at 15 WWE wrestlers who developed as they got further in the WWE industry.
If you watched his debut, you obviously didn't expect something like the 'latest him' to appear. This Indian mammoth is more than seven feet tall, and he even became the WWE World Heavyweight Champion in 2007.
Even if you don't watch WWE, you already know him because The Rock has become one of the most popular Hollywood actors in the world.
Before John Cena became the face of WWE, he was just an average kid. Now, he's known around the world as that guy who was able to slam Big Show back at WrestleMania XX.
Brock Lesnar's transformation isn't that drastic, which means that this beast was already intent on beating up his opponents right from the very start.
It seems to be a great thing that Triple H decided to ditch his blonde hair.
Roman Reigns has been praised by both men and women for his skills, but has anyone paid attention to his former self?
The Undertaker might be one of the most iconic WWE superstars in its history, but he wasn't as menacing back then.
Randy Orton, known as The Legend Killer, slowly but surely shot himself up to fame through his aggressive persona that matched his pride.
Big Show had one of the biggest transformations as a WWE superstar. He might have already been huge back then, but he truly became big when he finally dedicated his life to wrestling.
Unlike Triple H, Shawn Michaels didn't let go of his long hair. However, that didn't stop legions of women from swooning over this legendary wrestler.
Batista might have only been known by the general public as that huge, funny guy on Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, but this fan favorite was truly remarkable to see in the ring. He was ruthless and he showed the world that he deserved to be the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
Before Batista entered the scene, it was Goldberg and Brock Lesnar who captivated audiences because of how ferocious they were. Their presence alone was enough to send you chills down your spine.
He might have a funny wrestling move that involves sticking his butt up other wrestlers' faces, but he truly was one of the most memorable performers in WWE.
He might not be in WWE anymore, but Kurt Angle once had a fantastic feud with Brock Lesnar. Thankfully, he became included in the 2016 International Sports Hall of Fame.
The former WWE wrestler didn't look quite intimidating during his younger years, but the current UFC fighter proved doubters wrong when he improved his body and his fighting skills.
