Ben will pretty much be "runnings things" (as part of their current story/etc having different hosts each week on the show). He'll probably talk some, be involved in some skits/etc...but nothing physical be it during the season and such. I think it should be pretty cool/interesting if they do it right...Ben can be entertaining!

Maybe I'm just too old school, but..at best..we will be 2-2 next week. I wish Ben would wait until the offseason to do stuff like this. We need to focus on the season.

Does anyone watch WWE anymore? It hasn't been interesting in about 10 years.

And Borski, they are back on USA Network.

Here is the release from WWE.com( Its still WWF to me)

Next week's special guest host for Monday Night Raw is no stranger to pressure situations and making snap decisions.

Just hours after leading the Pittsburgh Steelers against the San Diego Chargers, Ben Roethlisberger, quarterback of the defending NFL Super Bowl Champions, will guest host Monday Night Raw at Wachovia Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., this Monday.

And he's not coming alone. Roethlisberger, the youngest Super Bowl winning quarterback in NFL history, will be bringing protection in the form of his Steelers' offensive line teammates to Wilkes-Barre.

"Big Ben" joins the prestigious list of past Raw celebrity guest hosts, including Olympic gold medalist Shaquille O’Neal, Emmy-winning actor Jeremy Piven and television legend Bob Barker.

Roethlisberger frequently attends Raw and SmackDown with his Steelers teammates when WWE visits Pittsburgh's Mellon Arena, which gives him up-close knowledge of the Superstars and Divas he will have control over next Monday night.

Roethlisberger's charitable foundation, The Ben Roethlisberger Foundation, seeks to provide support for police and fire departments throughout the United States and to enhance the quality of life for residents of Findlay, Ohio (his hometown) and Pittsburgh.

For the third season in a row, The Ben Roethlisberger Foundation will be distributing grants to police and fire departments in Pittsburgh and in the cities and surrounding communities of each regular season away opponent for the Steelers in 2009. The Ben Roethlisberger Foundation has invited police and fire departments in the eight cities to submit proposals detailing their needs.

In commenting on why the mission of the foundation is so important to him, Roethlisberger said, “It was an honor and a privilege to work with police and fire departments in and around the Pittsburgh area as well as with others around the country. We have had the opportunity to see first-hand how important (police)dogs are to these men and women who risk their lives every day to protect us. It’s incredible to see the strong bond that is formed between the dogs and their partners both on the job and at home.”

What plays will the two-time Super Bowl Champion draw up for the Raw Superstars and Divas? Will "Big Ben" call an audible, mixing things up for the next pay-per-view event, WWE Bragging Rights?

Find out next Monday as Roethlisberger breaks the huddle on Raw Monday night, 9/8 CT, on USA Network

Wow...and Jerry Lawler (announcer of Raw) is a die-hard Browns fan. Should be an interesting interaction to say the least.

yes cause he should be holed up in a film room 24/7 when he's not on the field!

Its a good oppurtunity to get his charity out there and its on Monday night so he can watch game film during the day. The players have lives to.

I can't wait till the woman accusing him of rape comes out holding a microphone and challenging him to a cage match. Why settle it in the courts when you can settle it in the ring.
