WWE Hall of Fame legend Jerry Lawler has been tipped to make a shock heel turn as the future general manager of Raw, by his long-time announce colleague and close friend Jim Ross.

Lawler has been a mainstay of WWE programming for more than three decades, carving out a niche as a voice of experience and excitement alongside JR and more recently Michael Cole and John Bradshaw Layfield in the commentary booth.

Ross would like to see Lawler play a more active role on Raw though and believes that if Team Authority lose to Team Cena at this Sunday's Survivor Series pay-per-view he should be considered as a candidate to steady the ship on the flagship Monday night programme.

Time to give the king a new crown?

Ross mentioned on a recent episode of his hugely popular podcast The Ross Report that he thinks Lawler could bring something fresh to the role, particularly if he turns heel.

Lawler is just one of a whole host of WWE superstars being linked with the coveted position, which has been something of a poisoned chalice since being introduced back in the early 2000's. For every Eric Bischoff there's been a Teddy Long or Vickie Guerrero, but is this a niche that the self-crowned king of sports entertainment could make his own?

Survivor Series looms large

Fans hoping to see a new high-profile Raw GM and an end to The Authority's reign of terror will be glued to this Sunday's Survivor Series, where John Cena will lead a five-man squad looking for a victory in the main event that could spark a revolution in the WWE.

Stone Cold Steve Austin, Mick Foley, Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair are just some of the incredible names being linked with taking some kind of creative control on Raw if Team Cena wins this weekend's five-on-five showdown, but Lawler is a more realistic option and someone who could thrive with a new lease of life every Monday night if called upon.
