Variety, the magazine/newspaper/whatever made famous by Entourage claims the following celebrities are confirmed as future RAW guest hosts: Bob Barker, Al Sharpton, Nancy O’Dell, Floyd Mayweather and LeBron James.
Celebrities in talks with WWE to host RAW, according to Variety include: Pete Wentz, Ashlee Simpson, the Osbournes, Danny DeVito, Regis Philbin, Kelly Ripa, Jimmy Fallon, Rachael Ray, MC Hammer, Woody Harrelson, Serena Williams and Ashton Kutcher.
Okay, I want to address a few of these:
Ashton Kutcher would probably upstage the talent. He would generate ratings but I don’t think that he would be good for the program. Ditto on Lebron.
Rachael Ray is a godess. Having her on raw would be awesome. Can we get her and Michelle Bonner together in my classroom please? I would love to give them orders.
Woody Harrelson, Al Sharpton, and Serena Williams intrigue me. They all the potential to be great.
Pete Wentz and Ashley Simpson are a joke.
Danny Devito will be the greatest host of all time. Can you imagine getting anything like his Penguin character in batman or his character in Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia. (If you like Seinfeld then you should check out that show.) It is also rumored that the rest of the cast of the Sunny in Philadelphia show will be guest so I think it is safe to assume that Devito and the cast will appear at the same time.
Who is Nancy O’Dell? I really don’t know. I had to wikipedia her and I still didn’t know. From what I gather she is either a host on Access Hollywood or used to be. It also appears that the only reason she is appearing on Raw is to promote a book title “Full of Life” which is a bunch of stories that a mom wants to share with another mom. Interesting that she would appear on raw to promote that of all things. She does look like some decent eye candy though.
