– Seth Green has blogged on the WWE Universe site about his experience as special guest host of RAW this past week. Here’s some of what he wrote:
I can not believe that actually happened. I have been watching wrestling all my life, so guest hosting WWE Raw was a dream come true. But I never thought I’d actually be center ring with the biggest superstars of today!
Thank you so much to all of the people that cheered me on- I won’t lie, it was scary getting in the ring with Randy Orton and The Legacy. I felt pretty safe with Triple H and John Cena on my side, but when it was just me and Randy in there…let’s say I’m glad a kick to the gut was the worst I got. That was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I used to practice my ‘superstar moves’ on my sofa as a kid, and last night I got to do it for real. Unbelievable.
– As noted earlier, WWE’s SmackDown and ECW brands will be running in Orlando, Florida on December 20th, the same day as TNA’s December pay-per-view in Orlando. The WWE show is actually a TV taping for that week’s shows as WWE will be taping early for the Christmas holiday. They will be taping RAW in Tampa on December 21st.
– The former WWE No Mercy pay-per-view, now called Hell in a Cell, will be held on October 4th in Newark, New Jersey. This will be the first WWE event held in the new Prudential Center which opened last year.
– WWE Hall of Famer Roddy Piper is currently filming a new movie called Opponent in Connecticut. Piper plays a local priest who is determined to destroy an alien being who has invaded a small town. The movie co-stars Jeremy London of Mallrats fame.
