In Lieu of The Rock and Tiger Woods, WWE Gets Bradley Cooper and UFC Star to Host Miami Raw
There's been rumors circulating for months that when the WWE brings its long running Raw program to the American Airlines Arena on June 7 they wanted to bring a big name guest hosts in tow. First there were whispers that the night could see the long-anticipated return of Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson to the squared circle, but that never happened. Then there were the rumblings that the organization had reached out to Tiger Woods, who is reportedly a big fan and live in South Florida, but that never seemed like it was going to happen.
Well, they've finally landed someone, actually three someones. The cast of the upcoming A-Team movie, which includes your aunt's latest Hollywood crush Bradley Cooper, UFC star Quinton "Rampage" Jackson (who plays the Mr. T role) and Who?-inducing actor Sharlto Copley will be stepping in. Fellow star Liam Neeson apparently won't be on the show, which is sad because he's great on live TV. Last time he flicked off Justin Bieber for no apparent reason.
Not exactly as earth shattering as a Rock or Woods hosted night, but it's still more star-studded than your average Monday night rasslin'.
