Jerry "The King" Lawler is making a temporary return to the Raw broadcast booth.
During Raw Talk last night, it was announced that Lawler will be filling in for Corey Graves on commentary for the next couple of weeks. Graves (real name Matthew Polinsky) will be away from the show because he and Carmella (Leah Van Dale) are getting married.
"I am looking forward to it. I am gonna be back behind the announcer's table there on Monday Night Raw because that idiot Corey Graves is getting married!" Lawler joked.
Jimmy Smith, Graves, and Byron Saxton are the normal Raw commentary team.
Carmella tweeted this morning:
Lawler most recently appeared on Raw during an episode of the show in Cleveland, Ohio last month. He hosted a homecoming segment with The Miz and Logan Paul.
It was reported in December 2021 that Lawler has signed a new contract with WWE.
Next week's Raw is being held at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan. Here's what's been announced for the episode:
- AJ Styles vs. Damian Priest
- Women's Tag Team Champions Sasha Banks & Naomi defend against Rhea Ripley & Liv Morgan
- Rey Mysterio vs. Veer Mahaan
