Jim Ross confirmed on Twitter that he and Jerry Lawler will be at the Raw 25th Anniversary show.
The Raw 25th Anniversary Show promises to be one of the more memorable events in recent WWE memory. At least, that’s how they’re trying to set it up. A number of legends like Kevin Nash, Shawn Michaels, and The Undertaker are set to attend, with Chris Jericho also rumored.
But now, you can throw in two of your favorite wrestling figures onto the event. Jim Ross confirmed that he and Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler will be attending the 25th Anniversary show at Madison Square Garden.

Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler are both Hall of Famers who began working together on the Raw Brand during The Attitude Era and became the voices of professional wrestling. Ross and Lawler developed tremendous on-air chemistry, calling some of the most iconic matches of the past 20 years.
Ross left the WWE in 2013, with some reports saying he was fired after allegedly showing up intoxicated at an event, but others saying he opted to resign. Good Ol’ J.R. returned to WWE at WrestleMania 33 and signed a two-year contract with the company.
Over the past couple of years, Lawler has only appeared sporadically on broadcasts, with WWE using younger talent on air. Lawler and Lita were both analysts for pre-shows but were taken off in 2016. Lawler comes in occasionally to fill in for other commentators, and also works in the independent circuit.
But we know how much Vince McMahon loves to maximize on superstar returns that’ll please the crowd, so bringing back Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler for nostalgic sakes only make sense. The Raw 25th Anniversary only comes once, after all.
It remains to be seen what other legends will appear on the show, and what matches will take place. But with Ross and Lawler set to make a return, it’s safe to say we fans wouldn’t want it any other way.
