- You may remember in late 2010 where Jeff the Drunk said on the Howard Stern show that he would be guest hosting WWE RAW on the December 27th show from Albany, New York and would be doing a segment with Steve Austin. The claim was also reported on Howard’s news but people in WWE denied it.
The day after RAW in Albany, Jeff appeared on Stern and said he showed up at RAW but wasn’t let in the building. He claimed the whole deal was set up by Ron Simmons, who is no longer with WWE. Jeff said he showed up and called Simmons, who likely wasn’t even at the show, and that Simmons said he would get him inside but never did.
The Drunk claimed that after calling Simmons again and waiting at the ticket office for three hours, he left. He also claimed he shaved his head before going to RAW because WWE’s Josh Matthews told him WWE wanted him bald for the guest host gig. Jeff then went on to rant about Simmons and Matthews, obviously revealing that he was working his own angle from the start.
- Jim Ross noted on Twitter that once the WWE DVD on Hall of Famer Gorgeous George is done and released, they will then begin working on the WWE Studios movie on his life.
- As noted before, Jim Ross will be the special referee for the dark main event at the RAW live event in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on March 13th. That match is being advertised as The Miz vs. Randy Orton for the WWE Title.
