WWE announced shortly after the 2018 Royal Rumble that Jonathan Coachman would be returning to the company as a commentator, replacing Booker T on the Monday Night Raw broadcast team.
While "The Coach" is best remembered by WWE fans for his interview segments during the Attitude Era with the likes of Chris Jericho and The Rock, many will remember him as the announcer-turned-performer who competed against stars like Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, Triple H and John Cena.
Of course, he wasn't victorious against any of those current and future Hall of Famers, but he was still able to win five matches on WWE television between 2003 and 2007.
In this article, we take a trip down memory lane and look at who the latest member of Raw’s announce team defeated during his previous tenure with the company.
#5 Jerry Lawler
The 1 September 2003 episode of Monday Night Raw largely centred around the intense rivalry between Shane McMahon and the recently unmasked Kane, while Evolution battled the unlikely trio of Goldberg, Shawn Michaels and Maven in the main event.
However, before those storylines were addressed, the show actually began with a match between Jerry “The King” Lawler and WWE in-ring debutant Jonathan Coachman.
The previous week, Lawler was one second away from winning the Intercontinental title from Christian until his pinfall was broken up by “The Coach”. As a result, he was given the chance to get some revenge in a one-on-one match with his broadcast colleague.
Lawler was in charge for most of the short match, of course, but interference from Al Snow allowed Coachman to pick up a shock victory.
