LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — John Cena is Tim Tebow. Tim Tebow is John Cena.
We’re talking two completely different “sports,” but the roles they play are one in the same.
Washington Redskins defensive end Adam Carriker and I compiled a list of the 10 NFL players with the most potential to make it in the WWE and Tebow topped the list because of his likeness to the current champion.
Like Cena, some people love Tebow while others think he’s making a mockery of the NFL. Either way, there is no one who believes the wrestler and the quarterback are ‘just okay.’
They are the most polarizing figures in “sports” today and love them or hate them, people pay to go seem them.

The Rest of the Top 10
2.) RGIII – He could be be one of the most epic high flyers in wrestling. He’s great on the mic and extremely athletic.
3.) Ndamukong Suh – Perhaps the ultimate “heel” (wrestling term for a bad guy) in the NFL could be the biggest “heel” in the history of WWE.
4.) James Harrison – Mean. Mean. Mean. He would dominate.
5.) Terrell Suggs – A potential tag team partner for the No. 4 guy. Looks mean, is mean and will hurt you.
6.) JJ Watt – The best defensive player in the NFL is a natural “heel”. Although Chuck thinks he’d be a better “face” (good guy).
7.) Adrian Peterson – He’s on this list because of current Impact Wrestling Champion Chris Sabin. Both have overcome horrific injuries to become leaders once again.
8.) Victor Cruz – A potential tag team partner for Fandango thanks to his celebratory cha-cha.
9.) Brian Orakpo – “Mr. Geico” himself, has a deep voice and could cut a great promo. He’s also a huge wrestling fan and brings a lot of knowledge to the table.
10.) Sebastian Janikowski – The Oakland Raiders kicker is pure personality and would have one hell of a boot to the head, like Randy Orton.
