Punk wants JR to call next week’s Raw main event

CM Punk used the services of Twitter to request a special play-by-play announcer for his WWE title match against John Cena next week on the RAW 1000 episode. “@JRsBBQ Should call the title match next week on the #RAW1000 show. @JohnCena let’s make it happen,” Punk wrote earlier today, calling WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross by his Twitter handle. While Lawler and Cole will surely be ringside for the main event, it’s not the first time that when someone requests the services of Jim Ross, he’s added as the third man in the broadcast booth. Steve Austin, The Rock, The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, and Triple H, are some of the people who at some point in their career requested Jim Ross to call their match when he wasn’t doing regular commentary for the company. With this being the 1,000th episode of the show and not to mention that this will be a huge WWE title match on free TV, chances are that the powers that be will granting Punk’s wish.

    Punk’s not the only one. Glad he’s hopefully going to make it happen.

    “No Michael Cole on 1000th RAW please”

    Lawler and Ross won’t be around forever on commentary so they going have be replaced eventually whether like them or not. But The Rock as a heel and Joey Styles as a face would make an excellent replacement for Lawler and Ross.

    The rock? Get real man the rock is not going to be spending any time in any announcers table

    Now that I think of it … I don’t even watch Raw anymore because the commentary sucks. I guess that means I miss JR.
