LeBron To Guest Host WWE Monday Night Raw

Posted By on Mon, Aug 17, 2009 at 8:59 AM

Variety reports that LeBron James will follow Shaq and become a guest host for a future WWE Monday Night Raw event.

Among the other celebrities booked for upcoming shows:

Bob Barker, the Rev. Al Sharpton, "Access Hollywood" co-host Nancy O'Dell, boxer Floyd Mayweather and basketball player LeBron James. Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz, Ashlee Simpson, the Osbournes, Danny DeVito, Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa, Jimmy Fallon, Rachael Ray, MC Hammer, Woody Harrelson, Serena Williams and Ashton Kutcher also are in talks for hosting gigs.

The article itself is kind of fascinating. Celebrities looking to pimp their latest projects are adding the WWE stop to their press tours. It's not just talk shows and Late Night anymore. The WWE is offering something different, both in terms of demographics and style, than the normal horse-and-pony appearances.

With that in mind, and even though the article gives no exact dates for each host, you can guess that LeBron's appearance will probably be in early to mid October before the season starts. That's when his documentary, "More Than a Game," premieres nationwide.
