WWE News: Colin Jost and Michael Che from “Saturday Night Live” Will Be Special Guests on Monday’s Raw

The hosts of Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live are headed to WWE’s Monday Night Raw this Monday night, March 4th in Philadelphia. Here’s the story from WWE that was announced today:

For Monday Night Raw, they’re Michael Che & Colin Jost!

Yes, the popular duo of SNL’s “Weekend Update” will be special guests on tomorrow’s Raw from Philadelphia. With neither Che or Jost afraid to tell it like it is, what will the two popular personalities have in store for the longest running episodic program in television history? Find out tomorrow night!

Colin Jost and Michael Che are the head writers on SNL as well. They have also hosted the Emmy Awards together. I don’t know if they are wrestling fans or if they follow current WWE, but I’m sure that whatever they do will likely be some comedy bit.

It’s a good thing that WWE doesn’t use celebrities on their shows regularly. It was a bad thing when they did it a decade ago because it hurt Raw.

The connection with Raw and SNL is that they are both part of the NBC Universal television family since NBC owns USA Network, which airs Raw.
