J.R. Teases a SummerSlam Surprise

In his latest blog on WWE.com, Jim Ross says he has a big surprise in store for SummerSlam.

“Summerslam is so big this year that I’m heading to L.A. on Friday just so I don’t miss any thing. Lots of really cool fan activities are being planned from what I hear,” Ross said. “Plus, I will have a MAJOR surprise for some folks at Summerslam. Gosh, I love surprises.”

- It’s been said that WWE officials are leaning more towards having celebrities guest host future editions of Monday Night RAW rather than former wrestlers. Exceptions include Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.

While Sgt.Slaughter will be hosting next week’s show, it likely had more to do with it not being easy to get a big name celebrity to fly out to Calgary and the possible GI Joe tie-in. Also, WWE approached Dusty Rhodes about appearing as a guest host when the idea initially came up, but it appears he has been placed on the back burner in favor of celebrities.

This whole celebrity host thing is pretty weak. ZZ top was a waste. The company should put more effort into developing the new talent. giving them time to get over with the crowds. adjust their gimmicks if needed, not just cut them loose after one or two months. The Host idea has to go. This is McMahons way to get media attention. Thats not a bad thing, but will it add viewers.
