‘SNL’ Weekend Update Anchors Michael Che And Colin Jost Are Guest-Hosting WWE Raw


It looks like the halcyon days of the “Monday Night Raw special guest host” are back.

WWE announced on Sunday that ‘Saturday Night Live’ Weekend Update anchors Michael Che and Colin Jost will make an appearance to host Monday’s edition of Raw from Philadelphia, but didn’t provide much in the way of specifics. Here’s the announcement in full:

For Monday Night Raw, they’re Michael Che & Colin Jost!

Yes, the popular duo of SNL’s “Weekend Update” will be special guests on tomorrow’s Raw from Philadelphia. With neither Che or Jost afraid to tell it like it is, what will the two popular personalities have in store for the longest running episodic program in television history?

Spoiler alert: they’re going over The Revival.

It’ll be interesting to see if they end up wrestling, or worse — see also Jon Stewart’s heel turn on John Cena or any episode of ‘The Daily Show With Seth Rollins’ — or if they’ll just show up in the middle of the episode to make a bunch of jokes about the week in wrestling. Sadly, this looks like the closest we’ll ever get to my dream of Norm MacDonald as General Manager of Raw.


Let’s hope the appearance also includes Dean Ambrose as the Drunk Uncle and Ronda Rousey as The Girl You Wish You Hadn’t Started a Conversation with at a Party.
