As the 25th Anniversary Raw grows closer, more names are revealed, and more time is added to the show. The newest announcement is that a pre-show will be starting at 7 pm EST on a variety of platforms, including but not limited to Twitter, WWE Network, YouTube, and Facebook Live. This pre-show will be hosted by Renee Young, Peter Rosenberg, Sam Roberts, and David Otunga.
Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler, Jim Ross, and Jonathan Coachman, as well as Lilian Garcia, have also been announced and will be live on Raw. The WWE isn’t stopping there, they are also bringing in some of SmackDown’s biggest stars, including, but not limited to Charlotte, New Day, AJ Styles, Shane McMahon, the Usos, and Daniel Bryan.
The first hour of Raw will be from the Manhattan Center, while the following two will come from the Barclays Center.
UPDATE – MVP has finally confirmed on Twitter that he will be appearing on the 25th Anniversary Raw!
Queen’s Decree – The WWE is going all out with this episode, which is great, but more time doesn’t mean a better show. I will say I’m excited about the show, and I’m very happy that it’s before the Royal Rumble, and not the night after, but too much can turn the fans off. We all know that I will be here for every moment of Raw, from Kick-Off through main event, and cannot wait to hang out with everyone in the Dignified Discussion!
