[quote name=\'chad1m\' post=\'223552\' date=\'Aug 20 2009, 09:31 PM\']This morning on 105.7 FM (The X) in the central Pennsylvania region, Barker did an interview where he confirmed that he will be hosting the September 7 episode of RAW, which will emanate from Chicago, IL.[/quote]
Oh. My. Gawd. How the once-mighty have fallen. After this appearance he will no longer be circling the drain but will be headed straight for the sewage treatment plant. The last vestiges of his dignity as a performer will go right down the drain. I can't wait to see him get knocked senseless by a guy wielding a metal folding chair or by a run-in with a cafeteria table.

I know the Spin Doctors repeatedly told us that the frat boy demographic was due to "Bob's cult-like following among college aged males", but really now, were those hormone driven frat boys tuning in to watch an old gray haired man, or the only hottie playmates wearing bathing suits on television at ten in the morning?
The exposure he got from his appearance in Happy Gilmore didn't hurt, but yeah, you're right about those hotties.

And sadly, that brick KMPC transmitter building was just demolished ;-(
I hope they turned the transmitter off first :-)

So now, the question is, what will he be doing on the show.

Flirting with the divas is obvious. I can't see him getting "punted" by Randy Orton. Any guesses?

(It's going to be a weird "mark-out" moment for me if Lillian Garcia introduces him and they play the TPiR theme. Let's see what kind of "pop" that gets from Chicago.)

That would surprise me a great deal, considering litigation about precisely that behavior is still in progress, is it not?

On second thought, perhaps Chris is right. If I can't come up with any ideas for an 80-something game show host on a professional wrestling program, imagine how WWE Creative must be feeling.

It would be interesting to know, if they don't, *why* they don't. Either they don't want to pay for the rights...or Fremantle doesn't want to sell them.

I want to see Dian Parkinson beat him senseless with a metal folding chair and then have Paul Wight introduce his head to a cafeteria table.

Dian's "second" can be Nick Alden.

Eh, they can just do the Beat the Clock challenge with a twist.  Have a lame skit where wrestlers superstars entertainers "bid" on how long a match will last, without going over, and the winner gets something.

/chairshot to the head for an exact bid.

I was hoping they'd bring back a version of RAW Roulette

They could always take three wrestlers and have them spin the big wheel.  Whoever comes closest to $1 without going over gets a shot at Randy Orton at the end of the night.  In the event of a tie, they can do a spin off.  Those who don't qualify get a shot at Kofi Kingston's US title in a triple threat match.

My money's on this.  Perhaps we'll also see a Mae Young cameo.  (The newest "Barker's Beauty.")
