You can count on two things in professional wrestling: dudes in spandex and horrible dance numbers. There must be a connection.  There must be something about spandex which causes these brutes to break out into horrible moves that would get any many laughed out off a dance floor.

Despite the awkwardness of grown men dancing in tight pants, there is a history of wrestlers who actually made the dancing work.

Here's our list of ten guys who made a living out of dancing in the squared-circle.

  • Koko B. Ware

    One of the forgotten masters of the boogie down, Koko B. Ware was at his peak when WWE was in its animal phase. Koko had Frankie the parrot, The British Bulldogs had Matilda the bulldog, and Jake the Snake had Damien, of course.

    Koko B. Ware was Brodus Clay long before 'The Funkadactyl' stopped being Snoop Dogg's bodyguard to become a wrestler. He would come out in the most flamboyant colors and somehow find a way to lose in the most flamboyant fashion. Koko was the first WWE superstar to lose to Mr. Perfect's "Perfect-Plex," and he lost the first ever match in 'Monday Night Raw' history to Yokozuna.

    While Koko B. Ware wasn't known for his winning ways, he is a member of the WWE Hall of Fame. He was inducted by another guy on this list, The Honky Tonk Man. Not only was Koko B. Ware known for dancing, but for his signature dance move, which is easy enough for even the least coordinated wrestling fan to mimic.

  • Fandango

    Johnny Curtis has come a long way since winning 'NXT' Season 3 and pouring milk all over himself on WWE Smackdown. People all over the world, especially the United Kingdom, continue to dance in the streets to his theme song.

    The night after WrestleMania 29, 'Fandangoing' took over 'Monday Night Raw.' The New Jersey crowd, still filled with all the WrestleMania refugees, had a blast singing and dancing to Fandango's entrance. This wasn't your usual, shameless babyface pulling kids into the ring to dance, but actual grown-ups dancing with Fandango. Well, as grown-up as you can be at a wrestling show in 2013, anyway.

    His song, composed by WWE's resident music man Jim Johnston, has become a hotter item than Fandango. "Cha Cha La La" climbed the UK singles charts for a while, and was a legit phenomenon. WWE has already mishandled the entire thing, forcing their employees to make videos of themselves 'fandangoing', and also having Fandango pandering to the crowd to recreate what New Jersey pulled off.

    As long as he continues to come down the entrance ramp with a beautiful dancing lady, I'll support his act.

  • The Blue Meanie

    Could he wrestle? Maybe. Was he in shape? Absolutely not. Did The Blue Meanie know how to groove? You better believe it.

    Blue Meanie came from the land of Extreme Championship Wrestling in Philadelphia. This is a town known for booing Santa Claus, beating up opposing teams' fans and just overall being mean-spirited. The Blue Meanie encompasses none of these things, despite his name, yet he still became so popular that Vince McMahon had to give him a contract.

    He would go on to anger JBL, on-screen and off, and fade into obscurity, but his climb to the big time was impressive.

    The best thing about Blue Meanie would be his name, as it's a beautiful homage to The Beatles and 'Yellow Submarine.' The Blue Meanies were music hating creatures in the story, which is very befitting of a Philadelphian, though with dance moves like his, there's no way this Blue Meanie hated music.

  • The Dancing Fools (Disco Inferno & Alex Wright)

    Since neither guy was ever going to rise to the top of WCW, Disco Inferno and Alex Wright joined forces to become The Dancing Fools, and were one extremely entertaining team.

    You had "Das Wunderkind" Alex Wright doing absolutely everything right, except for having a personality. On the flip side, you had Disco Inferno being a ball of charisma, but with zero focus in the ring. It seemed like a no-brainer to tag team the two men.

    The team didn't last long, and lost both of its major PPV matches, but they were truly unforgettable.

  • Norman Smiley

    'Screaming' Norman Smiley is one of the most underrated grapplers out of the United Kingdom. His jobber yellow trunks and sweet mini-fro, weren't quite bringing in the fan reactions, so he developed "The Big Wiggle" and that's when Norman Smiley took off.

    Unlike the majority of the guys on this list, Norman Smiley's moves were not PG. He wasn't out there to draw in the kids, he was just trying to come up with a way to express his personality.

    He could wrestle, he was funny, and Norman Smiley was also fearless -- he captured his only WCW title in the hardcore division. There was nothing better than Smiley getting destroyed by a foreign object, mid-wiggle.

    Norman Smiley works for WWE's minor league territory now and was the GM of NXT before Dusty Rhodes took over the operation.

  • The Fabulous Freebirds

    The original three-man band: Michael 'PS' Hayes, Terry 'Bam Bam' Gordy and Buddy Roberts were the original Fabulous Freebirds, but Jimmy Garvin was also a frequent member. These dudes could party, fight and most importantly... dance.

    These guys could strut like nobody's business. The Freebirds also created their own rule, which is still widely known, although hardly used anymore in wrestling. The "Freebird Rule" meant that any of the three members of the faction could defend their many tag titles on a given night. So, they would have 2-on-2 matches, but they'd be able to decide which combination would fight for the titles each time.

    The Fabulous Freebirds made dancing around the ring more badass than the two 400-pound guys (Tons of Funk) WWE currently has going.

  • Too Cool (Grand Master Sexay, Scotty Too Hotty, & Rikishi)

    These three wrestlers are the epitome of the term "upper mid-card." They may look like jabronies in retrospect, but this trio was insanely over. Alone, none of these guys could ever truly get over, but as a triumvirate they were unstoppable.

    Rikishi Fatu had come a long way from being a Headshrinker, or The Sultan, for that matter. People were popping for everything this guy did, but especially so when he'd stick his gigantic posterior into his opponents' faces.

    Grand Master Sexay Brian Christopher (son of Jerry 'The King' Lawler), was absolutely ridiculous. He's the only guy besides Scott Hall who could pull off the surfboard walk to the ring, and he put his own wacky spin on it.

    The biggest hit of all three was probably Scotty Too Hotty and his "worm." The crowd would blow the roof off of building when Scotty hopped around on one leg. If you thought the "People's Elbow" was a weak finisher, watch Scotty's forearm that follows "The Worm."

  • Dude Love

    Dude Love, or Mick Foley, is the only WWE champion on this list.

    Foley broke into the business by taking grotesque beatings as Cactus Jack and Mankind, but the story of Dude Love is what made him "Ms. Foley's baby boy" to wrestling fans. Who couldn't relate to Mick Foley dressing up as a kid and pretending to be the dancing sex symbol Dude Love?

    The Dude had a lot of crazy moments. He won the world title, teamed with 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin to win tag titles and even made an appearance in this year's WWE '13 video game. Out of all three faces of Foley,  The Dude's success most surprising.

  • Dusty Rhodes

    Dusty Rhodes wasn't only the son of a plumber, but he could also shuck and jive with the best of them. I'm not sure if it was his insanely flabby skin wiggling around freely, or the fact that he was completely committed, but 'The American Dream' made dancing work for him.

    Dusty was always busting his dance moves out in the ring, usually in-between bionic elbows, but he found dancing to be his focus while with the WWF. Dusty would invite fans into the ring, which is where he found his dancing partner/manager Sapphire.

    'The Dream' still works for WWE, but he is no longer shirtless on television. Thank god.

  • The Honky Tonk Man

    At one point, The Honky Tonk Man was the longest reigning Intercontinental Champion in WWE history, and the only man to ever get an Elvis Presley impersonator gimmick over in professional wrestling.

    Always rocking a bedazzled jumpsuit, Honky was playing air guitar in the ring decades before WWE's resident Guitar Heroes "3MB" purchased leather pants. He was at his best when paired with 'The Mouth of the South' Jimmy Hart. Those two guys defined the Southern heel up north, at that time.

    Not only could Honky Tonk Man dance, but he even recorded his own theme song. He's not the only guy in wrestling to sing his own theme, but Honky set the trend.
