It’s fitting, we suppose, that in this Rex Ryan-fueled era of pro wrestling sound bites, a current NFL player would be involved in one of the staples of the “sport.”
Next week, while the football-watching world is watching Vikings quarterback Brett Favre face the Packers for the first time in his career, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be guest hosting WWE’s Monday Night Raw.
The event will be held in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
The prior night, the Steelers host the Chargers on Sunday Night Football.
Actually, it’s fitting that Roethlisberger would get the nod, given that embellishing injuries is one of the standard job requirements for the “wrestlers.”
