Jim Ross was one of the legendary names that received an invitation to appear on next week’s WWE Monday Night reunion special. It wouldn’t be so odd if Ross wasn’t signed to a multi-year (and very lucrative) deal with All Elite Wrestling but AEW co-founder Tony Khan was fine with JR appearing on Raw.
According to WrestleZone’s Domini DeAngelo, Ross revealed during his Grilling JR show in Jacksonville, FL that Vince McMahon asked him about appearing at the reunion show and it was JR who turned it down.
Here is the list of names that were announced for next week’s show:
Stone Cold Steve Austin
Jerry “The King” Lawler
The Raw reunion special will take place at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida. Here is commercial hyping that show:
It'll be the BIGGEST reunion in Monday Night #RAW HISTORY.
