Home / WWE Tries Out New Character Before Raw Taping, Jerry Springer To Host Raw

— Mickie James is today’s “Daily Diva” on WWE.com while Trent Baretta is the “Superstar of the Day.”

— WWE announced yesterday that Jerry Springer will host the February 15, 2010 edition of Monday Night Raw. The company website is teasing his appearance with the following: “What does Springer have in store for the WWE Universe?”

— After numerous years in WWE’s developmental system, Ryan Reeves participated in his first dark match before last night’s Raw telecast. Going under the name Skip Sheffield, he defeated Chavo Guerrero. Reeves, who has undertaken a cowboy persona, cut a promo before his match about being from the South. He got the crowd to chant “yip yip yip” with him, which is something he does at Florida Championship Wrestling live events.

After being one of the eight finalists on WWE’s fourth installment of Tough Enough, Reeves was signed to a developmental contract. He spent time in Ohio Valley Wrestling and Deep South Wrestling from 2005 to 2007 before being released in January of the latter year. Reeves later returned to OVW and managed to score a second developmental contract with WWE following a September 2008 tryout.

He initially debuted in FCW with a Terminator-esque character he developed called Ryback, but adopted the Skip Sheffield persona this past fall.
