Wrestlers who could host SNL

I watched an old Rock-hosted SNL today, good episode. Wasn't his first SNL hosting gig back in like '99 a major step for Rocky towards becoming a more household name, proving he could be more than just a rassler etc? I've been thinking about wrestlers from today who could hold their own on the SNL stage, there's a few I'd like to see do it.

Miz is an obvious choice - comfortable in front of the cameras, easily charismatic, good ambassador for the company and not afraid to have a laugh at himself either, I'd love to see Miz get an episode.

Punk is another one I could see excelling in the format - thrives on a soapbox, anti-authority streak, probably not afraid to take some digs in some sketches like most athletes will avoid.

Jericho would shine, obvs.

A more out-there one I considered would be Big Show - At first thought doesn't seem like a fit for host, but he's got some experience on Psych etc, has had some funny skits over the years, and his size etc are ripe sketch fodder.

So, any thoughts?

Austin Aries, Bobby Roode, Rey Mysterio, or Ryback.

Big Show could do it easily. He is a goofy funny guy and he was on that episode with The Rock and did a good job.

Same goes with Triple H, he did good when he was on the one with The Rock. Also he did an episode with Mad TV.

John Cena could do it to. If WWE wanted to promote themselves and have someone on SNL, it would be John Cena and it wouldn't be bad either. Cena can be funny and he aint the greatest actor but he could do the job.

Other ones that would be good are CM Punk, The Miz, Chris Jericho, and maybe Edge.

Re: Wrestlers who could host SNL

Hello people! SNL is a comedy show. Not a single one of you has listed anyone that is funny. The Miz? Big Show? Daniel Bryan? Kane, Triple H? They have never made me laugh ever!

The best choice for laughs would be Macho Man but he is dead. I'm thinking Joey Ryan or Robbie E. They make people laugh on TNA and they could on SNL.

Any wrestler that is a comedian would be fine. That leaves out WWE and only 2 or 3 in TNA.
