According to breaking news from WWE.com (and they’d know), ESPN’s Bill Simmons will guest star on next Monday’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw. Simmons has previously appeared in the crowd at events like last year’s SummerSlam, but this time he’ll be a guest commentator and, if we’re lucky, get put through the table by someone.
The best part? He’s being bundled in an “LA Celebrities” package with Snoop Dogg.
As The Road to WrestleMania enters its final leg, rap icon Snoop Dogg and ESPN personality Bill Simmons will be paying the WWE Universe a visit.
WWE.com can confirm that Snoop Dogg and Simmons will appear on next week’s edition of Monday Night Raw, which will emanate live from Los Angeles’ STAPLES Center at 8/7 C on USA Network. Snoop, who is the keynote speaker at this year’s SXSW Music Conference and Festival, will be the show’s official guest star in advance of the May 12 release of his latest album, “Bush,” produced by Pharrell Williams. Simmons, the creator and editor-in-chief of Grantland.com as well as the host of the Grantland Basketball Hour and The BS Report podcast, will join JBL, Michael Cole and Booker T as a guest commentator.
See what goes down when the Los Angeles luminaries join Monday Night Raw next week, live at 8/7 C on USA Network.
If Snoop’s showing up, can we get Sasha Banks a spot on the show?
We’ll have a full report of Simmons’ appearance after it happens, and we hope it includes the hits: random steroid allegations, cutting away to music during important conversations and being suspended for suggesting The Authority isn’t fairly running the show.
