The rumors kicking around were true, as confirmed yesterday: Big Ben will be the guest host of WWE Monday Night Raw at Wachovia Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., next Monday. And for extra theatrics, he will be flanked by his entire offensive line, which will be trying to successfully block someone for the first time this year.
The truth is, guys make appearances during the season all the time, whether it's going good or bad. This will probably not be well-received by many Steeler fans, who believe Roethlisberger should be locked in a film room studying the next opponent. But the next opponent would be the Detroit Lions. And I'm not in the locker room on any basis, but I don't believe too much gets done on Monday nights. Heck, Ochocinco said last night that he plans on going to every Monday night game the rest of the season (not that he's any barometer of common sense). But being that the Steelers are 1-2, I expect a full "lack of focus" reaction to hit the airwaves, web, and newsprint this week. One thing I know for sure: I don't even want to think about a world in which they lose to San Diego, hold a 1-3 record, and follow that with a scripted wrestling appearance by a half-dozen of their players. It may get uglier than the G-20 protests in Pittsburgh.
