Well, the WWE twitter page announced all the past iconic superstars from RAW who will be making big appearances on this coming Monday’s “RAW 25th” Anniversary show. I’m actually looking forward to this ’cause as a die hard wrestling fanatic, I’ve been watching RAW for many years myself. I’ve watched throughout the Attitude Era and I also watched throughout the Ruthless Aggression era (from 2002 – 2008). I still watch RAW today after all these years. Admittedly I do take long breaks from RAW every now and then ’cause sometimes they can get pretty stupid with their storylines. I remember taking a long break from RAW when all these “Celebrity Guest Hosts” was going on. That era was terrible, and I didn’t like the RAW anonymous GM era either. Other than that, RAW has always been a great show and still is.
As announced above: the Undertaker is making an appearance, D-Generation X, Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler will make comebacks as color commentator which will be amazing, looks like the nWo, the APA, the Dudley Boyz, Chris Jericho and Stone Cold Steve Austin will all be making big comebacks this coming Monday night.
Only thing that gotten me scratching my head is that no Rock and Hulk Hogan? The Rock and Hulk Hogan were both very important to RAW. Ever since RAW has been on the air, Hulk Hogan didn’t make his return to WWE until 1993. Then came back again years later as the black and white Hollywood Hogan to reform the nWo. That Hogan and Rock feud was pretty epic stuff.
Will the Rock and Hulk Hogan actually make appearances this coming Monday? Hulk Hogan himself said on twitter claims he won’t be there but I think it’s possible that he and WWE are trying to keep it a secret. The Rock said nothing about a one-off return but again, he could be keeping it a secret too. I think we’ll definitely see them both on RAW, just my prediction. WWE is trying to keep it a surprise. The RAW 25th can’t happen without the Rock and Hogan ’cause they were pretty important for the show.
While Hulk Hogan was a pretty important part of RAW, it wasn’t really him that made RAW such a huge show. It was really Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock and Vince McMahon that made RAW huge. Without the legendary Stone Cold vs. Vince McMahon feud in the 90’s, RAW wouldn’t have been around today. I think Vince McMahon will make a TV appearance on RAW Monday ’cause the Mr. McMahon heel character was what kept people watching RAW to begin with. Admit it, right?
I sure do miss the old days of wrestling, though. The good ol’ 90’s of RAW were pretty amazing stuff.
Will the Rock and Hogan be on this show? We’ll have to wait and see. It’s WWE. Anything is possible with them.
