Jim Ross noted on social media that he was invited to next week’s WWE Raw Reunion show by Vince McMahon. Ross noted that he “politely refused” even though All Elite Wrestling President Tony Khan left the decision up to him.
Powell’s POV: I’m genuinely surprised that Ross was invited now that he works for AEW. I joked last night in our WWE Extreme Rules audio review about Chris Jericho appearing because I assumed he would not be invited. I guess it’s not so far fetched given that Vince extended the invitation to Ross.
Because some are asking, I was cordially invited to attend #RAWReunion by @VinceMcMahon but I politely refused. @TonyKhan left it up to me. Nonetheless I hope the #RAWReunion is a ratings success. @JrGrilling escapes Thursday am at 6 ET. pic.twitter.com/zQkw8jwJxR
