Cuban's ready for Monday Night Raw

DALLAS – Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban will make a repeat appearance as a guest host on WWE’s Monday Night Raw.

Cuban’s turn as the ringmaster of the weekly wrestling show comes Dec. 7 at the American Airlines Center, the Mavs’ home.

This will be Cuban’s second stint on Monday Night Raw. His first appearance, which came in 2003, was memorable because Randy Orton put Cuban in the “RKO,” the wrestler’s famous sleeper hold.

“This time,” Cuban said, “I’m going to kick his ass.”
