It's official: Diminutive actor Verne Troyer, best known as Mini-Me in the Austin Powers movies, will be the guest host for Raw a week from Monday in Baltimore at 1st Mariner Arena, WWE announced it on its Web site today.As someone who will be in attendance at that show, I have to admit that I'm a little disappointed. I was hoping for someone such as Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis or former WWE diva Stacy Keibler (who says that she contacted WWE about the gig but no one returned her calls).

So Hershey, Pa., gets Jesse "The Body" Ventura this Monday, and we get Mini-Me. Baltimore really got the short end of the stick. Speaking of which, I'm sure there will be plenty of "comedy" with Troyer and Hornswoggle.
