Hey, Ricky Hatton's getting back in the ring after all! But he'll be doing it as a "guest host" of World Wrestling Entertainment's weekly Monday night program, WWE Raw.

Hatton said in a release: ``As a youngster, I was a fan of WWE, and I'm still a big fan now. This is something I'm really excited about doing, especially so close to my hometown. I think my son is even more excited about it than I am.''

With WWE on Hatton's home turf, how will the Hitman run the show?

Will it be gloves on or gloves off?

Either way, he's guaranteed to shake up things when Monday Night Raw hits the United Kingdom.

Past guest hosts for WWE Monday Night Raw included sports stars Shaq, Ben Roethlisberger, Joey Logano, Kyle Busch and Floyd Money Mayweather who Hatton knows very well. Mayweather, a standout boxer, beat the 7-0, 485-pound Big Show during WWE's WrestleMania 24 in the Citrus Bowl in Orlando.

The show will be in Sheffield, England on November 9, so the crowd will certainly know Ricky Hatton quite well. The shows airs on the USA Network in the States every Monday at 9pm.

As I've said before, I grew up a huge pro wrestling fan, but in the last five years the product has become unwatchable to my snobby eyes, but I might glance in on Hatton hosting Raw just for kicks. Ricky's a more natural interview than Floyd Mayweather, whose appearance on Raw was forced and dull. Hatton might get to just be himself with a crowd that will love him, and I think he'd likely do well in a back-and-forth sort of deal, which is something Floyd doesn't do so well. Floyd's not exactly a quick thinker, as we've learned recently.

I hope Ricky has fun, gets a good little payday, and his fans enjoy it.
