What a great way to prep for the Daytona 500.
Six days before the biggest race of the year, Carl Edwards will deal with a bunch of sweaty men who wear tights. No, he’s not going to karaoke with Michael Waltrip’s pit crew. Edwards will serve as guest host of WWE “Monday Night Raw.”
Edwards is the third NASCAR driver to host the show, which gives us some perspective to help make this experience as enjoyable as possible for Captain Aflac.
Remember your lines
Kyle Busch and Joey Logano were more flustered than Scott Speed on a lead lap. In fact, Busch mistook Jimmie Johnson for Kofi Kingston. I know HBO is following JJ around 24/7, but Kyle, you’ve got to get it in gear.
In wrestling lingo, Leaping Lanny Poffo was “a jobber.” That’s the guy who always got his clock cleaned by the top-tier guys. Before getting beat to a pulp, Lanny read poetry off the back of a Frisbee and then threw his art into the crowd.
Don’t get in the ring
Previous hosts of the show, even Bob Barker, have gotten physical with some of the wrestlers. For some, this has gone great. For others, this has wreaked of suckitude. If Edwards wants to get inside the ring, the time to do so was December. If he or Jack Roush have any questions, look at these videos.
