Inside The Squared Circle: T.V. Roundup, Ron Simmons' College Football Hall of Fame Induction, Mickie James A Lifesaver

Monday Night Raw was better this week, but still lacking a real knockout punch. Trish Stratus (pictured above to the left of Jim Ross and Stacey Keibler) made an appearance in a backstage vignette, however, didn’t say anything. What?

Ron Simmons also appeared during that segment and uttered his trademark “Damn!” Simmons recently was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame and the W.W.E. did a nice job of airing some old footage of Simmons playing at Florida State University. For more on his induction, click here.

Rowdy Roddy Piper showed why he is one of the best talkers ever in the biz when he laid out the verbal smackdown on Carlito and Santino Marella. That segment, though, would get ruined by Cryme Tyme. Ugh!

Mickie James reportedly helped to save a man suffering from a seizure at an autograph session during Wrestlemania weekend. Incidentally, she beat Beth Phoenix in a "lumberjill" match on Raw.

William Regal continued turning off the lights during matches, which is getting real old! It’s setting up a feud with Regal and Triple H that could possibly involve Randy Orton.

Mr. Kennedy looks to be turning “face.”

Shawn Michaels continues to be my choice as the highlight of the show and will take on Chris Jericho at Judgement Day on May 18. Incredibly, the W.W.E. will follow up with a pay-per-view on June 1, One Night Stand.

E.C.W. celebrated its 100th episode since its W.W.E. revival last night. I saw Colin Delaney pin Armando Estrada to finally earn an E.C.W. contract. Yawn!

CM Punk and Kane defeated Chavo Guerrero and Bam Neely in an OK match. Punk and Kane stared down W.W.E. Tag Team Champions John Morrison and The Miz after the match.

Smackdown this week will attempt to sort out the disastrous stripping of the World Championship from The Undertaker.

Meanwhile, Michelle McCool was the number one search on Yahoo! on NFL Draft day.
