Johnny Manziel compared to "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and The Rock.

Can you smell what JFF is cooking?

Johnny Manziel's less-than-humble attitude on the field following his first-half suspension during Saturday's Texas A&M win over Rice managed to generate only slightly less criticism than Miley Cyrus "twerking" did at the VMA's did a week ago. It has, however, generated it-had-to-happen-sometime comparisons to WWE Superstars "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and The Rock from The National Football Post's Joe Fortenbaugh.

"Texas A&M dual-threat quarterback Johnny Manziel had, fittingly, two options at his disposal for how to approach this past Saturday’s season-opener against Rice. Serving a first-half suspension for something that did or did not happen, but most definitely could not be proven, Manziel’s choices were simple: Perform at the highest possible level while demonstrating both class and humility in an effort to show the critics that an offseason rife with immaturity and bad decision making was a thing of the past, or, like “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, flip the double bird to the world while doing what Johnny Football does best.

Manziel, in spectacular fashion, opted for the latter. And in the process, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner set the table for what will no doubt serve as this season’s most captivating and oft-debated college football campaign in recent memory."

Luckily for the WWE, there's a very high chance Manziel will jump ship from Texas A&M after the end of the season, and enter the 2014 NFL Draft. This will of course allow him the chance to appear at Wrestlemania XXX next year. A Johnny Football and The Rock vs. John Cena and C.M. Punk tag team match would be a main event to remember.
