– TimesOnline.com has an interview up with Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger where he defends his decision to host this week’s WWE Monday Night RAW in Wilkes-Barre, PA despite some outcry in the media. Roethlisberger added, “I got asked to do it. Vince McMahon asked me to do it, and I said, ‘Sure, why not?’ I mean, it’s our off day. I talked to (Tomlin) about it. I didn’t really ask for his permission. I talked to him about it to get a feel for if he was going to have a big problem with it. I figured he tell me. But like I said, it’s our off day.”
