Rothlesmania runs wild!

I thought the clip of Ric Flair scratch off lottery tickets was the facepalm moment of the day. Leave it to the WWE to prove that I was sadly mistaken. In its never ending quest to turn off its fanbase, the WWE has announced Steelers' QB Ben Roethlisberger will be the special guest host of next week's Monday Night RAW.
It's really hard to tell who looks worse in this situation, Mr. Roethlisberger or Mr. McMahon. On one hand you've got Big Ben showing why people question his judgement at times. On the field he can be a little too much of a gunslinger at times. Off the field there are incidents like the motorcycle crash sans helmet, singing altered versions of Christmas classics with questionable lyrics in public, and that (probably bogus) sexual assault allegation. The RAW appearance could lead into some not so positive situations.
As for McMahon, the whole guest host gimmick has irked a few fans who really just want to see good pro wrestling. It's sad when the average ten minute or so CHIKARA Podcast-A-Go-Go has better action than a two-hour RAW broadcast. Maybe if Vince McMahon would work on that more ratings would improve. That and stop shoving talentless box of kittens Randi Orton down fan's throats, but that's another story.
