-- Charlie Haas' appearance as Vince McMahon's special guest on Raw on Monday was said to be a rib, reports PROWRESTLING.NET - Backstage WWE News, TNA News, All Pro Wrestling News. The idea was pitched by the creative staff as a joke. In the past, McMahon has stated to members of the creative team that "he'd rather watch paint dry" than watch Charlie Haas. McMahon got a kick out of the joke and approved of the two appearing together on camera. One WWE source compared this situation to the sort of vindictive booking that often took place in WCW. "This is really scary and it's getting like WCW," the source said. This wouldn't be the first joke played on Haas by people in WWE. A few years ago, some people in management coined the term "Haas Pop." They would use the term in reference to wrestlers getting no crowd reaction.
