Report: Jim Ross possibly filling in for Jerry Lawler as announcer at Night of Champions

With Jerry Lawler still recovering from the heart attack he suffered on Monday Night Raw earlier this week in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, his spot at the commentary desk next to Michael Cole is wide open. With WWE heading to Boston, Massachusetts, for the Night of Champions pay-per-view (PPV) tonight (Sun., Sept. 16, 2012) at the TD Garden Arena, someone is going to need to fill those shoes, difficult as it may be.

Who better for the job than Jim Ross?

According to a report from PWInsider.com, good ol' J.R. is in Boston for the event taking place later this evening and he could be tapped to fill in. Of course, his being at the arena could mean nothing too, but why use Josh Matthews or Matt Striker when you've got one of the best ever at your disposal?

Then again, we are talking about WWE here and any time Ross is involved with the company things seem to go bad, save for special occasions. One would think something as serious as a heart attack would avoid those issues, at least for the time being, but you just never know with this company.

We'll find out tonight.
