This will be the first time we get to see the villainous duo in a live-action film but this will not be the first time that we have seen a wrestler in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle franchise. You may remember that former WWF wrestler Kevin Nash aka Big Daddy Cool Diesel played the role of Super Shredder in 1991’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze.
