The WWE visited Dallas, and the humble and reclusive Mark Cuban was the guest host on "Monday Night Raw". Cuban was warmly greeted by fans, but not so much by the wrestlers. One wrestler quipped, "You are just like your basketball team. You are all talk. Don't you guys want to do something memorable in this arena, besides lose in the playoffs?" Truer words were never spoken.
After some not-so-light-hearted banter, Cuban would later referee a match.
A longtime critic of sports officiating, Cuban the Ref is both biased and incapable of making a three-second call, which are some of the exact gripes he's had with NBA refs over the years.
Cuban would later receive payback from a juiced-up Rick Astley-lookalike named Sheamus. But not for pulling a Tim Donaghy in the earlier match. He just felt Cuban was full of himself, and he kind of hated him. No argument there.
