Looks even more badass bald. What would this Expendables 2 villain be with a toupee?

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson

An expert in hurting people: He played defensive tackle at the University of Miami before becoming a pro wrestler.

We respected him as a rapper and actor, but after he took down a home intruder this summer, we're even more intimidated.

Andre Agassi

Hall of Famer because of his tennis skills. On our list because of his temper. And, yeah, better-looking without the wig.

So clumsy and fragile he makes Elmer Fudd look tough. We're not afraid at all.
