See Ron Swanson As a WWE-Like Wrestler

Ladies and gentlemen! One thousand episodes later, WWE Raw continues to be something people like. We tip our hats to all the juicy, 'roided-up muscleheads whose openly scripted, tightly choreographed homoerotic death battles have helped turn some of them into movie stars (see Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, and — we're going way back here to WWF days — The Princess Bride's Andre the Giant). In honor of the anniversary, we've dreamed up some wrestling alter egos for three of your favorite TV characters. Who else should we have mocked up? (See more of artist Jon Defreest's work here.)
