WWE cameras caught JBL’s iconic limo arriving inside the Paycom Center for Raw tonight. The show then went to a commercial break. JBL arrived in the ring and cut a promo on the city of Oklahoma.

After berating the fans in attendance, JBL eviscerated Rey Mysterio for ducking his son Dominik and jumping ship to SmackDown. JBL then introduced Baron Corbin and revealed that Raw had traded Baron Corbin for Rey Mysterio.

JBL called Baron Corbin a “modern day wrestling god.” For those not in the know, JBL appeared during a previous episode of SmackDown and offered to take Baron Corbin under his wing.

JBL is expected to appear on future Raw shows as part of his new alliance with Baron Corbin. We’ll have to wait to see what’s next in store for the newfound alliance between JBL and Baron Corbin.
