Jesse Ventura is a character in the film Jesse “The Body.” We associate his name with professional wrestling and flicks like Predator. He gained notoriety as a member of the US Navy Underwater Demolition Team when the Vietnam War broke out, just as he was preparing to build a name for himself in wrestling and Hollywood.
Despite the fact that this professional wrestler’s life revolved around action in the ring, he never saw actual battle while serving in the Navy. He was often called a Navy Seal, though he never completed his training in the unit. He would go on to become the 38th Governor of Minnesota from 1999 to 2003.
