Jim Ross Helps Call 6-Man Tag On 1000th Raw, Charlie Sheen Appears Via Skype, Cameos By Hacksaw, Piper, Mae Young & Her "Son"

Shares 0

- Jim Ross joined Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler on commentary for the 1000th episode of WWE Raw to help call the 6-man tag team match which featured World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus, Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara beating Chris Jericho, Dolph Ziggler and Alberto Del Rio.

- Charlie Sheen made an appearance on the 1000th Raw via Skype from Los Angeles. Originally scheduled to be the "social media ambassador" for the show, Sheen will check-in throughout the night via Skype after deleting his Twitter account.  The logic here is flawed as Sheen claimed to be watching the show live but the show doesn't air on the west coast for another couple of hours.

- "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, Mae Young and an oversized hand (appearing as May's "son") made cameos during a backstage segment with WWE Divas Champion Layla and AJ Lee.

    I wonder how many of the newer fans got the hand, I did lol!

    • David

      So did I, I was so stupid I couldn't stop laughing.

    It’s a shame that JR wasn’t able to stay to call the entire show. I’ll enjoy whenever he does announce, however small.

  • Bubba J

    I thought raw aired live in the west coast?

    • Richard Gray

      Raw airs live in the East and Central time zones in the United States. Everywhere else domestically gets it in the 8-11 PM timeslot.

        I live in AZ and Raw is live if you have Direct TV. If you have standard cable it airs @ 9pm. Before the 3 hr switch it started @ 6pm. Now it’s 5.

      I thought that as well. My time zone is Mountain and I thought it would be live, but it started an hour late, not a big deal, I can always watch it online.

  • Whammaster

    I busted out so hard when i saw mae young and the hand. That was awesome.

  • Nathen

    Richard, some carriers do offer the live feed of Raw HD here in the west coast. So it is possible that Sheen watched a live feed.

  • Terra Ryzing

    JR shoulda called the title match.

  • Logan_Walker

    Maybe WWE Offered Him a Live Stream Of RAW on There Site like they do for PPVS but only get Sheen the link.

  • Logan_Walker

    Or it was a pre taped and at the time of me watching it i never thought about it because i never noticed it. and i thought that RAW was live all over the states

    You know, I think we've seen Mae Young's sun in the past on WWE TV. Didn't he used to be the SmackDown fist?

    I got the hand immediately. The only missing element was Mark Henry. As for Sheen appearing to be watching live, he could have been. Satellite communications are awesome; WWE could have set him up a link to be able to watch the show live. Or they could have just been feeding him info to make it appear that way. Either way, I like that they still held him to his obligation, even though he deleted his Twitter account. And I hope that he actually does get in the ring with Daniel Bryan. That would be awesome.
