Donald Trump Buys Raw - WWE Monday Night

On tonight's WWE Monday Night Raw television program on the USA channel, Vince McMahon announced that Donald Trump had purchased the show. Vince said he will remain Chairman. Donald indicated that he would be there next week and the broadcast would not have any commercials.

Who knows where they will take this storyline. Trump seems to like to be on tv in any way that he can.

It was also interesting to see Goldest appear with Hornswoggle.

Wrestling Moves WWE - beyond the ring

Former star of the squared circle, Torrie Wilson was teaching some wrestling moves WWE style to model Janice Dickinson. This happened on the NBC show "I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!"

The show has been airing nightly with some of it broadcast live. The reality show features two Baldwin brothers along with other celebrities competing in Costa Rica or something to that effect. Haha, good for Torrie to be back on television.

Steve "Mongo" McMichael

Former footballer and pro wrestler Steve McMichael has been elected to the college football hall of fame. The guy was much better at football than in the ring.

You could tell he really loved being in the squared circle, though. Congrats Mongo!

Welcome fans of WWE, TNA, ROH and more

I've seen that commercial for the new John Cena 12 Rounds movie. Once again he is trying to save a kidnapped lady. Looks like a good movie though. Maybe Cena will do some of his wrestling moves, like maybe a deathvalleydriver.

Still can't believe Andrew "Test" Martin is dead. Has the cause of death been known yet? It keeps being shown how dangerous it is to become wrestlers.
