WWE: 7 Situations on TV That Would Be Hilarious with Pro Wrestlers
As a kid who grew up in the WWF Attitude era, nothing was more hilarious to me than some of the funny segments cut by Stone Cold Steve Austin, DX and the Rock.
In this article, we will talk about situations or television shows that would be "spiced up" by the presence of pro wrestlers. Could we imagine Stone Cold showing up to the NFL Draft and stunning Roger Goodell? Who wouldn't pay money to see that? Here are some situations that would be equally as funny, captivating or flat out needs to happen.
Stone Cold Steve Austin at the NFL Draft
Is Roger Goodell the most hated boss in all of North America right now? Yes.
I would pay good money to see the following exchange at the 2013 NFL Draft...
Goodell: "With the first pick in the NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns select..."
Chris Berman: "Oh my god! Is that..."
*Crowd goes crazy*
Stone Cold: "What? Roger Goodell? You wanna come in here and make these rules that make the NFL a game for a bunch of sissies that can't hit each other? What?"
Stone Cold: "You wanna suspend Jonathan Vilma for whipping people's asses? What? You wanna protect Brett Favre even though he made a joke of your product? What? If you wanna see Stone Cold Steve Austin whip Brett Favre's fake Wrangler-jean wearing redneck ass give me a hell yeah!"
Crowd: "HELL YEAH!"
*Stone Cold drops the mic, and gives Goodell a stunner as the crowd goes absolutely insane*
Would YouTube explode after that?
Ric Flair on "House"

Richard Morgan Fleihr is 63 and has been wrestling for over four decades. He has sustained a myriad of wrestling-related injuries, probably done more drugs, pain-killers, drank more alcohol and slept with more women than anyone in the business.
That is a recipe for a kajillion differential diagnoses that I don't even know if Dr. House could figure out. Would we love seeing Ric lie through his teeth about his medical history? How about Ric hitting on Dr. Cuddy? How about Ric being on morphine and asking Dr. Foreman why he, Booker T, shaved his head?
What if you add in Ric's family? That would add a bigger layer of drama that the creators of House could not resist.
Plus, nobody is better at faking bloodbaths than the Nature Boy.
The Dudley Boyz/Team 3D on "Storage Wars"
Okay, this is more a situation where I'd like to see Bubba Ray Dudley replace Darrell Sheets. And then have D-Von replace his son.
Their entire gimmick on the show might just revolve around them bidding for boxes and having a near-orgasm moment on TV when they find tables among their haul.
More importantly, we could witness the greatest day in Storage Wars history if they 3D'ed Dave Hester through one of the tables they found.
Jim Ross on "Monday Night Football"
Imagine this situation. But it's Tim Tebow saving the Jets against the Texans.
Put him with Jerry Lawler or Michael Cole. Put him with Mike Tirico, I don't care. But the funniest thing to see would be Jim Ross being the "face" commentator for the NFL and Jon Gruden being the "heel" commentator.
Imagine if Mark Sanchez plays horribly on MNF in Week 5 against the Houston Texans. The Jets are getting beat down 24-7, then Rex Ryan pulls the trigger and brings in Tim Tebow.
And then Jim Ross going, "BAHHHH GAWDDD! THAT'S TIM TEBOW'S MUSIC!!!! TIM TEBOW! RETURNING TO LEAD THE JETS TO VICTORY! TIM TEBOW IS CLEANING HOUSE! TIM TEBOW IS RUNNING OVER ANYTHING, THAT BY GOD MOVES!!! GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY!"
The Rock on "First Take" or "Inside the NBA" or "Pardon the Interruption"
Ever wish Skip Bayless would just shut up about how bad LeBron James is or how he's the "Frozen One?" Or how Tim Tebow has a great deep arm or "All He Does is Win?"
Or how Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon take way too long to settle a "two minute debate?"
Or Charles Barkley just being Charles?
Stephen A Smith and the guests like Terrell Suggs can't fight the good battle any longer. We need to bring in the big guns...
FINALLY! THE ROCK HAS COME BACK...TO "FIRST TAKE" ESPN!
The Rock: "So, Skip Bayless, you think that Tim Tebow's gonna win the Super Bowl?"
Skip Bayless: "What I said, and what I think is that..."
And refer to above video.
John Cena on "South Park"
Alright, this already happened in Season 13. But they could have gone a lot further than this and made fun of Cena way more.
Way, way more.
Vince McMahon on "The Bachelor"
Some would say it'd be funny to have Vince on "The Apprentice" or "Dragon's Den," but honestly, we've already seen a Vince vs. Donald Trump storyline.
Vince has definitely paraded his philandering ways around the back office of the WWE with the Divas, so why not put him in the real dragon's den with "The Bachelor?"
