WWE is seemingly sparing no expense to make Raw’s 25th anniversary special on January 22 a night wrestling fans won’t soon forget. The confirmed list of returning WWE Superstars is kind of unreal.
We already knew that Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler were booked for Raw 25, but we didn’t know how WWE planned to use the most iconic announcing team in WWE history. Until now.
Mike Rome announced via WWE’s Twitter account on Monday that Ross and Lawler are, indeed, calling the action inside the Manhattan Center on January 22. Raw 25 is going to feature some sort of bizarre simulcast where the show will take place at both the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and the Manhattan Center at the same time. Having Ross and Lawler work the Manhattan Center portion of the event makes all the sense in the world, and now it’s official.
