Last week on Raw, Iron Sheik asked Jonathan Coachman if he could have a talk show. Coach said he would take it under advisement. Raw head writer Brian Gewirtz is the one behind a possible Iron Sheik talk show segment on WWE programming. He’s pushing for WWE to sign Sheik to a talent contract, although he’s in the minority at this point. There is fear of putting him under contract because not a month seems to go by where he’s not involved in some wacky incident in which he’s making a scene. It’s one thing for Sheik to be involved in a monthly disaster when he’s not under contract, but it’s another thing when he actually is. And with Sheik, it’s not a question of if, but when.

Jesse Ventura was at Titan Towers to meet with Vince McMahon on Thursday, June 14. No word yet on what the meeting was about, but he was dressed up like it was a serious business meeting. It wouldn’t be surprising if there was going to be a DVD on him. There was some speculation thrown around that he could be a General Manager character, but that’s probably a longshot.
