WWE's Ryback wants to replace Schwarzenegger in Terminator

WWE Superstar Ryback would love to launch an acting career and would love to take over Arnold Schwarzenegger's famous Terminator role.

The 32-year-old professional wrestler - real name Ryan Reeves - has admitted he would love to launch a Hollywood career like fellow wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and has had a lifelong ambition to play the cyborg assassin character that propelled Arnold, 66, to worldwide stardom in 1984.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz about his acting plans, Ryback said: "I feel like I'd be the perfect comic book villain. I've always said that I've been waiting for the Terminator remake to happen so that I can take on that role. So if anyone out there is listening - the big guy wants to be the Terminator."

Although Ryback would love to play the famous role, the dedicated grappler would only consider an acting career if it didn't interfere with his gruelling wrestling schedule.

The 32-year-old star - who can be seen competing on WWE TLC on Sky Sports 3 tonight (16.12.13) at 9pm - said: "I'm a WWE superstar first and foremost and I enjoy working the WWE schedule and I take pride in being able to do all I've done - all the live events since I've been here, and being in all the television tapings and working the full schedule, being on the road five days a week and home a day and a half.

"If we're able to work something out and if we have a weekend off here and there to do a movie or to go that route and still be a WWE Superstar, then, let's do it!"

He added: "I'm well-rounded and I feel like I could take on any roles. We've just got to wait and see. If it's meant to be it will. If not, I'm enjoying being a WWE Superstar."
