– WWE’s effort to boost the profile of its weekly RAW guest hosts has begun materializing, as the company has confirmed A-list celebrities and a UFC headliner as its upcoming guest hosts.
Following Jon Lovitz’s turn next week, comedy actor Ashton Kutcher will take the RAW helm on May 31, 2010. Kutcher interacted with Triple H on an episode of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” last year, and rumors soon followed that he was on WWE’s short list for desired RAW hosts. He will be promoting “Killers.”
When RAW heads to Miami on 6/7, the hosts will be “A-Team” cast members Bradley Cooper, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Sharlto Copley. Cooper has become one of cinema’s most recognizable comedy talents, starring in such hits as “He’s Just Not That Into You,” “The Hangover” and “Valentine’s Day.” Copley’s resume is fairly limited (the only other major film on his resume is “District 9”), while “Rampage” is one of UFC’s most popular fighters. He will be fighting Rashad Evans on pay-per-view the week prior.
On 6/14, “Royal Pains” star Mark Feuerstein will host RAW to boost the connectivity between the two USA Network series.
