    WWE and the NFL are two of the greatest forms of entertainment in America.  Combining the two would be can’t miss TV.

    No, I’m not talking about bringing the XFL back.  That wouldn’t be good for anyone, except maybe Tommy Maddox and Rod Smart.

    I want to see some of the best players in the NFL get in the ring with professional wrestlers.

    Here are 15 NFL stars who we’d like to see in the WWE.

Cam Newton

    Cam Newton is a self proclaimed icon and entertainer.  Well, what better forum to entertain than the WWE.

    Also, there’s always the chance of Newton taking a pounding.

Ndamukong Suh

    Ndamukong Suh hunts quarterbacks with the best of them, emerging as one of the top defensive tackles in the game his rookie season.

    Let’s see how Suh does hunting someone like John Cena.

Peyton Hillis

    Peyton Hillis ran through the NFL last season, rushing for 1,177 yards.

    I’d like to see Hillis take his bowling ball style of running to WWE.

Bart Scott

    All I have to say is I CAN’T WAIT for New York Jets linebacker Bart Scott to wrestle.

Marshawn Lynch

    Did you see what Marshawn Lynch did to the Saints?

    Let’s see if he can repeat that in the WWE Tag Team Championship.

Tim Tebow

    Tim Tebow is a large, intense man. 

    He would be great in WWE, but only with the Friar Tuck haircut.

Tom Zbikowski

    Ravens' safety Tom Zbikowski is also a professional boxer, sporting a 4-0 record with three knockouts.

    WWE is a bit different, but Zbikowski is a crazy man and could win a couple matches.

Albert Haynesworth

    We already know Albert Haynesworth has some WWE ready moves.

    With stomps like that, he’d be great in WWE if he could only improve his cardiovascular fitness.

Ray Lewis

    Not only can Ray Lewis hit hard, but he can dance with the best of them.

    Lewis could do his jig then walk into the ring and Waterboy someone.

Chad Ochocinco

    Chad Ochocinco plays football.  Chad Ochocinco plays soccer.  Chad Ochocinco rides bulls.

    It makes sense that Chad Ochocinco should wrestle.  Child please…

Ben Roethlisberger

    Ben Roethlisberger would be a star in WWE.

    He could ride his motorcycle up to the ring and then be escorted up by two ring girls.

    Plus, we already know he can take a hit.

Cortland Finnegan

    Cortland Finnegan is a pesky cornerback who is scrappy and gets on everyone’s nerves.  He’s like your annoying little brother.

    It would be great to see his world get rocked in the ring, but even greater if we were to fight…

Andre Johnson

    WWE would give Andre Johnson a more appropriate arena to beat up Cortland Finnegan.

    We only got to see a taste of Johnson’s fists of fury.  I want to see what he can do in the ring.

James Harrison

    James Harrison is one of the most ferocious players in the NFL.

    As long as he pretends every opponent is Mohamed Massaquoi, he’ll be just fine in the WWE.

Jared Allen

    Jared Allen is the player I most want to see in the WWE.

    Not only could he hold his own physically, as is evident by his 83 career sacks, but the dude is hilarious.

    His MTV Cribs segment is one of the best the show has ever had.

    Vince McMahon needs to sign Allen immediately.
