Jerry Lawler Returns to RAW Next Week, Maddox Gets A Shot At $1 Million

WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler will make his return to commentary on next week's WWE RAW from Columbus, Ohio. There has been some talk of WWE keeping Jim Ross on board to call RAW along with Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler, but that's not confirmed yet.

Next week's RAW will also feature Ryback vs. suspended WWE referee Brad Maddox, with Vince McMahon awarding Maddox a $1 million contract if he can defeat Ryback.

Speaking of Maddox, WWE.com's Matt Striker caught up with referee Rod Zapata at RAW and asked him about the controversy of Maddox costing Ryback his match with CM Punk at WWE's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view.

Zapata called Maddox a "piece of garbage" and doesn't believe Maddox when he says he acted alone in costing Ryback his WWE title match.
