Bon Jovi Nominates Sambora In Ice Bucket Challenge; Reunion Rumors Fly

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has been making its rounds throughout the worlds of sports and entertainment, and it recently made its way to Jon Bon Jovi.

Of course, Jon didn’t back down, and in the video above, the singer gets doused with a sizeable tub of frigged water.  (Side note: Is that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie on the left assisting Jon in the challenge?  Was The Boss also at this gathering of Jersey’s finest?!) 

However, Jon’s water-logged white t-shirt isn’t getting the most attention; it’s his Ice Bucket Challenge nomination of former Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora that has people talking.

Since Richie left the group in 2013 to spend more time with his family, fans have been wondering when and if he’ll rejoin the band.  While this gesture is certainly no confirmation that Richie will be back in Bon Jovi anytime soon, it shows that he and Jon are at least on descent terms, which definitely gives fans hope of a reunion.

…And now, we wait to see if Richie accepts Jon’s challenge.  We hope he does, especially since today (August 18th) is the release anniversary of Slippery When Wet.  Hmmm…how convenient?
