Jim Ross & Jerry Lawler to reunite for WWE Raw 25th anniversary


Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler will be reuniting to call part of Raw's 25th anniversary episode.

In a video that WWE posted this afternoon, Mike Rome confirmed that Ross and Lawler will be doing commentary from the Manhattan Center next Monday for that portion of the show. That's the role that had been expected for them, and WWE officially announced last week that they would be appearing on the show.

Both the Manhattan Center, which was the original home of Raw, and the Barclays Center will be hosting next week's anniversary episode. It will also be Raw's go-home show for the Royal Rumble, with Roman Reigns set to defend his Intercontinental Championship against The Miz and both Brock Lesnar and John Cena scheduled to appear.

In addition to Ross and Lawler, here's the list of names WWE has confirmed will be making special appearances next week:

  • Steve Austin
  • The Undertaker
  • Ric Flair
  • DX (Triple H & Shawn Michaels)
  • The Dudley Boys
  • Scott Hall & Kevin Nash
