WWE have today announced that chat show host Jerry Springer will be a guest on Monday Night Raw next week.
Jerry Springer is a talk show icon and now the 70-year-old is ready to hit WWE Raw yet again. This move is likely to cause quite a stir. Springer certainly polarises opinion, with his previous appearances on WWE bringing about mixed reviews.
So why is Jerry Springer being welcomed back onto WWE for another bizarre performance? Well it is to do some family management counselling of course.
Talk about ridiculous storylines, WWE definitely know how to do them well right now. Just when you thought things couldn't get worse, they do just that.
"The Bella Twins are about to get some family management advice from a third-party," a WWE statement read.
"Jerry Springer has been confirmed to moderate a discussion between the estranged “Total Divas” stars on the season premiere of Monday Night Raw in Baltimore on Sept. 8.
"The Bellas, as the WWE Universe knows, have been at vicious odds since Nikki turned on her twin sister Brie at SummerSlam. Recent weeks have seen Nikki demean her sister at every turn and go so far as to slander her reputation in “Growing Up Bella” vignettes that exposed Brie’s alleged childhood secrets."
I think we can add this to the list of WWE storylines that deserve criticism. And this type of storyline criticism of WWE has been pretty saturated recently across the dirt sheets.
Batista was one of the part-time wrestlers to slam the WWE creative team for not "selling" Daniel Bryan's injury post-WrestleMania, saying he felt frustrated by the lack of believability in the storyline.
Add this to Vince Russo's recent open letter to Vince McMahon and Triple H, and you can see why WWE's creative reputation is not the best at the moment.
