Promotion for Spike TV’s live UFC fight card special on 10/3, going up against the WWE RAW return to USA network, continues to be lackluster. As we reported previously, UFC is already faced with the strong possibility that one of their top draws scheduled for the card will have to be replaced or just cancelled, as Stephan Bonnar was injured during training. There’s less than two weeks to go before the big Monday night wars showdown, and WWE has more than stacked their side of the deck. This is looking more and more like something that shouldn’t be billed as a “war”, because it doesn’t seem like Spike TV is even trying to put up much of a fight lately.
John Cena will be hosting the movie presentation of “2 Fast 2 Furious” on the USA network on 10/2 to further promote the return of RAW the next night.
VH-1 continues to air mini-marathons of the Hulk Hogan reality show, “Hogan Knows Best” throughout the week. A few more are scheduled before this week is over.
