Another Boxer Set to Host RAW

The UK Sun is reporting that boxer Ricky Hatton will be the guest host for WWE Raw on November 9 in Sheffield, England. According to the Sun, Vince McMahon was looking for an English star with a big profile in the United States. With Hatton’s fights against Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao generating huge pay-per-view numbers in the United States in recent years, Hatton was a great fit.

Other names in considered were Ricky Gervais and Lennox Lewis. Vince went with Ricky Hatton because he feels Hatton is a name who will increase ticket sales for WWE’s house show in Europe, as well as increase the ratings in the UK and US.
