Jon Cena recently surprised everyone with his comic timing and uninhibited performance in Amy Schumer's "Trainwreck". To prove that he can not only beat Cena on the WWE ring, but also in the acting department, Seth Rollins took on some iconic roles from a few Hollywood classics.

Ahead of the SummerSlam 2015, which determined the world champion in wrestling, Rollins showed off his acting skills. He was at Yahoo's New York Studio when the acting bug bit him. He began with the unforgettable quote of Hannibal Lecter from "The Silence of the Lambs". His impression of Anthony Hopkins was spot-on as he said, "A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti."

He then took on Leonard Dicaprio's energised "I'm the king of the World" from "Titanic" before moving on to Tom Hanks' "Forrest Gump". Rollins then decided to get in touch with his feminine side by quoting Julia Roberts from "Notting Hill" before recreating Dr Brown's famous "Great Scott" from "Back to the Future".

His attempt at singing the "Circle of Life" from "The Lion King" must be acknowledged too.

He ended the audition by channelling his inner Regina George and storming off the set after throwing his script away. Although he is a little rough around the edges, there is great potential in the WWE Champ. Watch the video here:
