Jerry Springer Can't Throw A Punch

Friday, February 12, 2010 17:08 GMT

CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Talk show host Jerry Springer is always up for watching a fight, but not being in one.

This Monday (Feb. 15), Springer will guest host WWE: Monday Night Raw on USA but insists he’s a “wimp” and won’t be wrestling anyone himself.

Though The Jerry Springer Show is full of hair-pulling, chair-throwing rumbles, Springer has never been in a physical fight in his life.

He’s much better as a spectator and has learned to duck and run away when fists fly thanks to the chaos on his talk show.

Just to be safe though, he’s bringing his TV security guards to the WWE gig for extra protection.

He figures he’ll feel right at home watching the pro wrestlers duke it out because, “The only difference between them and the people on my show is that here, the wrestlers have all their teeth.”
