WWE confirmed cast members of the new 20th Century Fox movie The A-Team will guest host WWE Monday Night Raw on June 7 at the AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami.

UFC fighter Quinton Rampage Jackson portrays B.A. (Bad Attitude) Baracus, a role played by Mr. T in The A-Team action adventure television series in the 1980s.

I wonder if Rampage will work a wrestling match if he's in decent shape that soon after the Rashad Evans fight. Put a powerbomb on Chris Jericho or something.

(I have seen interviews where he seemed interested in pro wrestling after his career declines in MMA, so maybe this will be a shot for him to see how completely trashed a pro wrestler's body really is.)

As long as he's under contract with the UFC, I'd say probably not.

Shaq ended up clotheslining some pro wrestler some time after he was traded to Cleveland.

The WWE is not classified as a sport, and Rampage would be hosting the show as part of a promotional endeavor for the movie, not for the UFC, so there might be some wiggle room for him to punch somebody or something.

Either way, I figure Mr. T will end up being there and they'll both say "pity the fool" a few times and nobody at home will laugh.

The first time I heard of Rampage was in his king of the cage days, the first time I seen a picture of him I thought damn this guy is the last Junk Yard Dog fan. That was before his Pride days, he's taken over that image so much that I'd forgotten about JYD. That's hillarious, I wish I could prop you again.

I can't believe I still watch Thundercats at the age of 25 but hey I still love it!

I can somewhat agree with you,but a lot of people are down on it now because it's no longer "cool" to watch it. Granted I don't think it's as entertaining now but I fully aknowldege that a lot of the "TUF" fans sporting their high dollar Affliction shirts,if transported back to 97-98 would be the wanna be bald guys wearing the Austin 3:16 shirts. Different times,different catalyst for insecure macho like behavior but the end result would be the same.
Don't get me wrong,I believe MMA is the greatest sport in the world. But (and I know i'll get flamed for this), I still don't think the UFC has offered as many memorable moments as the WWE. In time i'm sure they will. But I don't think they have yet.

I wouldn't doubt it if they were there...in fact, I wouldn't doubt it if the A-Team was this cards main sponsor. It's usually a movie or a video game, so it only makes sense.

After a bit of thought Rampage actually closly resembles the wrestler.......... Bad News Brown. Dude had sewer Rats and a move called " The Ghetto Blaster".....a spinning roundhouse to the back of the skull. If anyone knows who i am talking about they know exactly what I mean!!! And it is COMPLETELY RAMPAGE!!!!!

I know exactly who you're talking about. I loved Bad News Brown back in the day. He was also an Olympic medalist in Judo.

RIP
