- Late last night, PWInsider reported that WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross was in Boston for tonight’s Night of Champions pay-per-view. They didn’t confirm this but speculated that Ross was there to replace Jerry Lawler on commentary.

F4Wonline.com reported early this morning that former WWE Champion John Bradshaw Layfield had been contacted by WWE and they reached an agreement for him to work commentary for Night of Champions and tomorrow’s RAW.

Dave Meltzer then speculated that this could be JBL coming back for more than just two appearances. For what it’s worth, JBL is set to go to Africa in a week to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro for his Seven Summits campaign.

  • Hank Moody

    JBL needs to be on the booth. PLEASE!

  • d o double

    Make it road dogg at least hes entertaining

  • JohnCena33

    JBL + Jim Ross – Cole = AWESOME COMMENTARY.

  • KC

    HOW ABOUT THIS JUST FOUND OUT JBL AND JIM ROSS BOTH BE THERE

  • Jimbotron

    YES! YES! YES! YES!

  • Bill

    I honestly wish that WWE would make JBL a permanent member of the Raw commentary team. We’ve had just Cole & Lawler for awhile now. It’d be a nice change to add him.

    I wouoldn’t mind seeing coach but not in a duo with cole. coach is more amusing as an interviewer anyway. he should be there at the rumble to interview the rock like old days!

  • 4Horsemen vs NWO vs DX

    Would rather that they contacted “Coach” and brought him back for couple shows.

  • Simon

    The most legendary announcer of all time or the WRESTLING (announcing) GOD. Either way, the fans will be happy. Ill be happy if he tells Cole to “Shut Up” one more time.

  • Sam Peters

    Either JR or JBL will be great to replace the King :)

  • pulgeezy

    That would be dope
