ESPN Article on Springer/Raw, Another Fozzy Signing

Nick Paglino

Thanks to Brandon Sampson for sending in the following:

ESPN posted the following news story prior to Jerry Springer hosting Raw this past Monday night:

Get this: Jerry Springer will host "WWE: Monday Night Raw" as a post-Valentine Day’s celebration on USA Network, so two thoughts immediately come to mind. Will there be nudity and even more violence than usual? Come to think of it, can Springer take Mr. Vince McMahon, the chairman of WWE?

"I could take him to dinner, but that’s about it," Springer said, disappointingly, during a conference call. "He could wipe me out with a sneeze."

Aw, come on, Jerry. How about a sucker punch?

"No, you know, there’s no one on this Earth I can beat up. It’s not even close."

Well, OK, back to the nudity. The WWE has some lovely divas. Perhaps Springer’s mere presence will ignite a catfight, and perhaps toplessness will ensue?

"I doubt it. They’re really concentrating on going kid-friendly, you know, family-friendly, so I don’t think there’ll be anything like that. I really don’t."
