Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler Booked For Raw 25th Anniversary, Nia Jax Lashes Out At Kurt Angle

Jim Ross

– Legendary announcer Jim Ross revealed on Twitter that both he and former broadcast partner Jerry “The King” Lawler will be on hand for the 25th anniversary of Monday Night Raw, which emanates 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.

Ross was responding to a fan question about the possibility of seeing him and Lawler back in Raw’s hot seat and announcing the show. Ross quipped that Lawler and himself would be in catering, if nothing else, and didn’t reveal what their respective roles would be.

– Alexa Bliss and Braun Strowman were quite happy to be announced as each other’s partners for the upcoming WWE Mixed Match Challenge. Nia Jax? Not so much.

The Total Divas star had been openly campaigning on social media for weeks to be Strowman’s partner and did not mince words for Raw General Manager Kurt Angle when she found out that Bliss had been selected as The Monster Among Men’s partner instead.

She also accused Bliss of blocking her, in response to this fan tweet.
