WWE have just announced FIVE big names for a RAW in Dallas, Texas next month. To say that this is going to be a star-studded show is an understatement!
The five men announced were….
- Brock Lesnar
- Shawn Michaels
- Ric Flair
- And Stone Cold Steve Austin!
Here’s the tweet from @WWE confirming the names stated above.
Ric Flair has been doing a lot of appearances recently on WWE television, including getting involved in the John Cena/Jon Stewart business as well as supporting her daughter Charlotte in her Divas title pursuit. He did say recently that he’d love to be on as many RAWs as he can and I’m glad that we’ll see him again!
Brock Lesnar and Undertaker will obviously be there to promote their match at Hell in a Cell. I think this will be the RAW before the PPV so they might have confrontation or something to lead into the PPV.
Shawn Michaels and Steve Austin are actually great coups for WWE. Austin and Michaels are both from Texas, so it makes sense as to why they’d show up. Undertaker’s also from Texas, which explains his appearance. Austin’s actually not appeared on WWE television since Wrestlemania XXX. He’s been doing the podcasts on the WWE Network and will be a big part of WWE 2K16. He’ll also probably been brought in to plug that too. However, to see him actually on RAW or a PPV is actually a rare treat. I think he’s not been on RAW since 2011, since he wasn’t on RAW 1000 or anything.
From the names that we’ve been giving, I think they’ll do like a Legend’s Panel to talk about the Hell in a Cell match. They did it a few times with Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan before, including one for the Royal Rumble. They obviously can’t do Hogan, so Austin might be brought in to take his place.
It’s a month or so a way but you can tell that this will be quite the go-home show before Hell in a Cell.
