The Muppets to guest star on WWE Raw on Halloween

via <a href=""></a>

Halloween this year falls on a Monday and you just knew WWE would break out the gimmicks for Raw that night. Sure enough, as announced today on the company website, The Muppets will be guest starring on the show on Oct. 31.

From the report:

What will happen when Kermit the Frog meets The Viper? Will the Divas make Miss Piggy flip with jealousy? Will Beaker be confused for Sheamus? On Halloween, it's time to play the music, it's time to light the lights, because the Muppets are about to get Raw!

Whoever wrote that copy should feel ashamed for their chosen profession.

The Muppets have a new movie coming out this upcoming Thanksgiving, so this is yet another cross promotion tactic. And, quite frankly, it's just downright embarrassing. It would also seem to make it clear that WWE is still marketing itself to kids. Not that we didn't already know this.
