Actor Ashton Kutcher will be hosting the 5/31 Raw in Austin, Texas.
The 6/7 edition of Raw in Miami, Florida will not be hosted by Dwayne Johnson. I reported several months back the company was trying to work out a Johnson return for that Raw, which will be the company’s next three hour edition.
Instead, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson will become the first former UFC champion to host Raw on 6/7. Jackson will be appearing to promote the A-Team feature, hosting alongside Bradley Cooper (also of Hangover Fame) and Sharlto Copley (the lead from last year’s awesome science fiction film District 9). They are playing BA Barakas, Face and Howling Mad Murdock, respectively, in the film adaption of the classic NBC action series. I was told we’ll likely see the A-Team van pop up on the show as well.
The 6/14 Raw in Charlotte, NC will be hosted by Mark Feuerstein, the lead star of USA Network’s Royal Pains. Feurstein will also be featured as a lead in the forthcoming WWE Studios film “Knucklehead” with Big Show. Show is filming an episode of Royal Pains this week that will air on 6/17, just a few days after Raw, so it makes sense we’ll likely see Show pop up in Charlotte as well.
