Top 20 Pro Athletes Who Would Make the Craziest Pro Wrestlers

There are people in this world that Triple H is afraid of, believe it or not. The same goes for Brock Lesnar, Roman Reigns and the rest of the WWE. What they fear is the unknown. The idea that if a guest professional athlete steps into their ring, there is no telling how he or she will act in a given situation. Some guests are used to keeping to the scripts with their experiences from making commercials by their multi-million dollar sponsorship contracts. There are ear-biting soccer players, neck-snapping football players, punch-throwing basketball players, racket-throwing tennis pros. When Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar, or Triple H takes on your favorite professional athlete, who actually has the advantage?

You would be surprised by the intensity - the fervent rage that takes over the mind, body, and soul of a football player on the wrong side of a cheap-shot. There is nothing that will stop him or her from attempting to obliterate an opponent they see behind their blood-hungry eyes. You might think, "Well, they won't have that chance because they'll sign a contract and be asked to keep to a script." Remember, these professional athletes are not professional entertainers. They compete to win. Their egos are very fragile. Their livelihoods don't depend on a paycheck from WWE and you can rest assured their only agendas will be personal.

That being said, some pro-athletes are absolutely willing and able to keep to a vague script and give the fans a show worthy of their ticket payment. We will not consider boxers, MMA fighters, or other martial art and combat athletes. So, with that in mind we are considering which professional athletes from nearly all walks of sport would make for a must-watch WWE matchup.  Athleticism, "superstardom", and a bit of "non compos mentis" makes for the perfect crazy pro-wrestler, so here goes an unbeatable top 20.

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

The Mike Tyson of soccer, Luis Suarez and his bite have the most unpredictable demeanor in sports. He is fearless, with several victims to have fallen to his jaws. He is undoubtedly a solid actor as he managed to make referees fall victim to his antics of innocence. Any time he is accused by opponents of wrong-doing, Suarez manages to act himself out of a red card. Suarez kicks opponents on the regular, showing no care for their sensitive areas. His taste for human blood is akin to Dracula, as he has no fear of being his blood-thirsty self on the world's biggest stages.
