Most kids dream of being a quarterback or a home-run slugger, and that's considered normal, even admirable. But tell an adult you dream of wrecking somebody with a one-arm powerslam like your hero Bruiser Brody, and you end up talking to soft-spoken men in well-lit offices about your aggression problems. Aggression shmagression — it's just wrestling, people. The respected actor Jeremy Piven knows what it's all about, as Piven recently tried to sneak attack John Cena from the top rope while he was hosting a WWE Monday Night Raw in Uncasville, Connecticut. Piven, you magnificent bastard — livin' the dream, baby. WWE Monday Night Raw returns to the Scottrade Center (1401 Clark Avenue; 314-241-1888 or www.scottradecenter.com) for another live broadcast at 7:15 p.m. this evening, and while Piven is not scheduled to be there, John Cena and Triple H are slated to fight Randy Orton and The Big Show in the main event. Tickets are $20 to $60.
