Well, as if WWE couldn't get wacky enough, on this week's episode of "Monday Night Raw," it was announced that Charlie Sheen, yes, that Charlie Sheen, will be the WWE's social media ambassador during the 1,000th episode of Raw on July 23. What does that mean? I'm glad you asked.
Sheen will tweet during the July 23 Raw, providing up-to-the-minute commentary on the night’s action to his 7.5 million Twitter followers. The WWE will try to add some new fans to their show by taking advantage of the more than 12 million fans Sheen has on the social media platforms Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram. WWE and Sheen fans will be able to ask the actor questions during the broadcast via Twitter using the #SheenGetsRaw hashtag.
As for the rest of the show on Monday, it was basically a continuation of ongoing story lines. The CM Punk-Daniel Bryan-Kane-AJ quadrangle continued. AJ plays her role perfectly, and is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters on the show. However, there is one problem with this entire angle: Punk, Bryan and Kane all come across as complete idiots who are being manipulated by AJ. That work OK with the Bryan and Kane characters, but there is no way the CM Punk should be manipulated by anyone. It makes him look foolish, and Punk is someone who should be making others feel foolish.
