Later this month the WWE will produce its 25th Anniversary Special show of Monday Night RAW.
The event will be a special simulcast event from the Barclays Center and Manhattan Center in New York City on Monday, Jan. 22, 2018. A ton of big names from WWE's past and present are expected to appear such as The Undertaker, John Cena, Shawn Michaels, Kevin Nash, and more yet to be announced.
Another pair of legends set to return are none other than WWE Hall Of Famers and former longtime Monday Night RAW commentary team "Good Ole' JR" Jim Ross and Jerry "The King" Lawler. The iconic due had been rumored to be appearing for several weeks, but Ross just made the news official.
Ross was recently asked by a fan what he and Lawler's involvement in the event would be, and while he didn't reveal exactly what they'd be doing, Ross said that he and Lawler have officially been booked by WWE for the event:
To have the voices of the Attitude Era back on WWE TV for one of the biggest RAWs of all time will be a truly epic affair. The show will likely lay the groundwork for a ton of storylines and matches at WrestleMania 34 this April.
In their official press release announcing the event, WWE mentioned that both Superstars from RAW and SmackDown Live would be present at the event:
"As first reported by The New York Post, the 25th anniversary of Monday Night Raw will emanate from Barclays Center and Manhattan Center in New York City on Monday, Jan. 22, 2018, and air live on USA Network at 8/7 C.
