Miss Piggy, 'WWE Monday Night RAW'It was a special Halloween edition of 'WWE Monday Night Raw' (Mon., 9PM ET on USA), which featured several of the wrestling superstars in costume. But at almost every turn, they were upstaged by the week's special guests.

In anticipation of their return to the silver screen, the Muppets were all over this broadcast. Kermit was getting some love from one of the female wrestlers, while Miss Piggy was getting rebuffed. Animal got to serve as the timekeeper, while Beeker actually impacted the outcome of a match.

Hugh Jackman, 'WWE Monday Night Raw'Hugh Jackman may have just been a guest on 'WWE Monday Night Raw' (Mon., 9PM ET on USA) this week, but he clearly knows his way around a wrestling ring. Not as a wrestler maybe, but he certainly knew the ropes of being a manager in professional wrestling.

When the referee was distracted ejecting someone else, Jackman applied a classic cheap shot to his guy's opponent, knocking Dolph Ziggler to the mat.

This allowed Zack Ryder to easily take him down and get the win. Afterward, Jackman joined him in the ring to celebrate a "hard-earned" victory, as the sideline announcers praised the sneaky maneuver by their Hollywood guest star.

I went undercover as a wrestling fanatic to a live 'WWE Monday Night RAW' event in Columbus, Ohio. Before long, I no longer needed to feign excitement and began truly enjoying himself.

Wrestling: The Monday Night War Is Back

by David Hofstede, posted Jan 5th 2010 11:30AM
Hulk HoganWrestling fans still have a nostalgic enthusiasm for the 1990s, when every Monday night brought five hours of choke slams and sleeper holds courtesy of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and World Championship Wrestling (WCW).

Back when WWE's 'Monday Night Raw' aired opposite WCW's 'Nitro,' both companies created new superstars, crafted envelope-pushing stories and even unleashed a few dirty tricks, like WCW revealing match results from WWE's pre-taped episodes, all in a battle for ratings supremacy.

The war ended when WWE purchased WCW in 2001. 'Raw' has aired unopposed ever since -- until tonight.

Vince McMahon wants to muscle in his own cable network

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Aug 31st 2009 3:02PM
Vince McMahon wants the world to do exactly this as he plans his own TV network.Before it became all cooking, gossip, fashion and interior decorating, Bravo used to be a fine arts network that aired classic drama, music, opera, etc.

TV viewers everywhere are hoping such sophistication returns to television with the news that World Wrestling Entertainment chairman Vince McMahon wants to create his own cable network.

McMahon wants to launch the WWE-dedicated channel for basic tier rates within the next two years. While a return to fine arts TV is unlikely, McMahon's wrestling product has been greatly softened in tone over recent months -- looking to attract a more family-based audience.

WWE unveils unlikely list of guest hosts for RAW

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Aug 28th 2009 11:03AM
A weird list of guest hosts in headed to Monday Night Raw.Back in the halcyon days of NBC's Bob Hope TV specials, the comedy legend would march out a list of the most bizarrely unrelated pseudo celebrities you could imagine.

You'd hear something like, "Join me this Sunday on NBC for 'Bob Hope's All-Star Salute to Existence' with great stars like Loni Anderson, Pink Lady and Jeff, the UPI All-American Football Team, Billy Carter, Steve Reeves and Brooke Shields!"

It looks like World Wrestling Entertainment is shooting for something equally bizarre with its list of upcoming Monday Night Raw guest hosts. Vince McMahon and company plan to continue the guest general manager routine through the end of 2009 and possibly all the way to Wrestlemania 26 next March.

WWE says Linda McMahon considering Senate run

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Aug 15th 2009 1:01PM
Linda McMahon may be jumping from the wrestling ring to Washington, DC.The problem with reporting real news originating in the professional wrestling world is that you never know if you're being played as part of a story angle designed to drive up ratings or pay-per-view buys.

However, since the following hasn't been mentioned on any of World Wrestling Entertainment's television shows, it might be legit.

According to the WWE: "Linda McMahon, CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, is considering a run for the United States Senate representing the state of Connecticut. Should she decide to run, Linda would step down as CEO, and Vince McMahon would assume the duties of CEO in addition to his current position as WWE Chairman."

TV celebs bouncing off the ropes to host WWE Raw

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Aug 10th 2009 12:04PM
These days, any celebrity can host WWE Raw.To drive ratings up -- and to drive devoted pro wrestling fans up a wall -- Vince McMahon and World Wrestling Entertainment recently began welcoming guest hosts to take over Monday Night Raw -- the WWE's flagship show -- every week.

So far, everyone from the NBA's Shaq to Entourage's Jeremy Piven to ZZ Top has taken over the live two-hour wrestling show.

It seems that when the show producers can't find a celeb to fit the bill, they bring in a wrestling star from the past -- like The Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase or Sergeant Slaughter.

WWE needs to calm down the SEC ASAP

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Jun 19th 2009 12:03PM
WWE logoWhat started out as just a TV wrestling stunt could have Vince McMahon and World Wrestling Entertainment in a headlock from federal authorities.

As we reported earlier this week, the WWE's Monday Night Raw is running an angle in which Donald Trump purchased the show from McMahon. It's all a big wrestling "work" -- a story element to drive the weekly show and entertain fans.

The trouble is that both WWE and Raw's parent network (USA) sent out official press releases announcing Trump's "purchase." And, WWE publicly held shares fell nearly 7% the next day.

Donald Trump, Monday Night Raw On a three-hour edition of World Wrestling Entertainment's Monday Night Raw on USA, CEO Vince McMahon announced he had sold the show to Donald Trump.

Before a shock wave ripples through the sports entertainment and reality show worlds, it's safe to say this is "a work" -- as they say in grappling circles. Trump has his orange-topped mug back on TV as an on-screen performer with WWE. Behind the curtain, when the arena goes dark, McMahon is still in charge.

According to McMahon, Trump will take over running the show in person next Monday night when a special, commercial-free Raw originates from Green Bay, Wisc.
