WWE Pro Wrestling Company Dancing With Gambling Again - Enter RAW Roulette
Gambling - online poker and now a roulette theme, has invaded the WWE Universe, and Media Man and Gambling911 are centre ring to bodyslam, suplex and clothesline our way to the facts.
The World Wrestling Entertainment company, headed up by Vince McMahon, just off an Aussie and China tour, is ramping up gambling. Last week in case you blinked and missed it, WWE Poker, promoted on the official WWE website was all the rage, and today we learn of WWE RAW Roulette!
Just good, clean WWE family entertainment and fun, or something more sinister?
Years ago McMahon rival Eric Bischoff dabbled in mixing wrestling and gaming together with mixed results.
Vince McMahon, WWE top brass looks to be taking it to the next level, but ironically a few years ago it was Ric Flair's involvement with the N.C Education Lottery that was given as a reason to distance themselves from 'The Nature Boy' and gambling full stop. A bit more history...About 15 years ago living legend Kevin Nash was known as 'Vinnie Vegas' when he entered the old World Championship Wrestling ring, but by the time he got to the then WWF he was Diesel. Today Nash is with WWE rival, TNA Wrestling, performing under his real name.

WWE Social Media...
It took a few years of convincing, but WWE management and wrestlers are now some of the most powerful, impressive, popular and entertaining folks in the world of social networking.
McMahon has joined Facebook, plugging himself into the social media phenom, but thus far seems to have resisted his own official Twitter account, but his company and wrestlers are Twitter maniacs (in a good way).
Mrs Linda McMcMahon, now running for U.S senate is winning her wrestling match with American politics. Linda is still standing despite taking some incredible chair shots from her bully opponents and detractors. Way to go Linda.
Side note, Hulk Hogan finds himself having numerous fake Facebook and Twitter accounts springing up on an almost weekly basis. Fakes are one of the main dangers of the internet world, but thank god there's only one Gambling911 and one Media Man. Often imitated, never, ever, duplicated!
