Inside The Squared Circle: Johnny Damon, Jericho on VH1, Comings and Goings

Johnny Damon did a nice job as guest host of Monday Night Raw. He knew the product; was involved enough without being the focal point; and genuinely seemed to enjoy himself. Oh yeah, and he took a kiss from 86-year-old Mae Young. Still, I wish the “guest host” thing would end.

Next week is Timbaland and then January 4 is Bret “Hitman” Hart, who is making his return to the W.W.E. as an on-air character. Hart signed a short-term deal which runs for about four months. Word is that he will wrestle one match, probably against Vince McMahon.

Hart has not been in a W.W.E ring since the infamous "Montreal Screwjob." He also has not talked with Triple H or Shawn Michaels since that night in November 1997 and said in his autobiography that he could never forgive either one. Supposedly he is coming back to help push family members; David Hart Smith, Tyson Kidd and Nattie Neidhart. I guess hell has frozen over.

Now if only Vince’s archnemesis Bruno Sammartino agrees to be inducted into the W.W.E. Hall of Fame then I will know that 2012 has arrived.

Chris Jericho will be hosting the "100 Most Shocking Music Moments on VH1" this coming Monday from 8-9 P.M.

High-flying Ring of Honor tag team Jay and Mark Briscoe are said to be close to a deal with the W.W.E.

Tommy Dreamer has reportedly asked for his release.
