Tuesday, January 9, 2018
WWE will be hosting the 25th anniversary of Monday Night Raw in less than two weeks. Not only will the event will be taking place in the Barclays Center in New York, but the company has also announced that they will be taking Raw back to where it all began: the Manhattan Center. Raw will switch back and fourth from both venues during the January 22nd broadcast. The company is reportedly working hard to guarantee that the show will be memorable for fans in attendance regardless of the arena that they are viewing the show from. As usual, that can only mean loading up both shows with some nostalgic guests and unexpected surprises.
The company has already confirmed that a number of different legends will be appearing at the show. It has been common knowledge for a while now that The Undertaker will be making his first WWE appearance since WrestleMania 33 at the show. Additionally, famous Raw performers such as Shawn Michaels were also confirmed for the show a few months back. During the most recent edition of Raw, WWE aired a commercial for the 25th anniversary show, and the company reveals a few more names that will be appearing on the show. Guest stars will be spanning multiple eras, so there will almost definitely be someone in attendance that fans will want to see.
An advertisement for the upcoming event has revealed that Jerry Lawler, Jim Ross, and Ric Flair will be appearing on the show. As far as tag teams go, The New Age Outlaws, The Dudley Boyz, The APA, and The Bella Twins have also been confirmed for the show later this month. Finally, a historic Raw episode would be incomplete without the "Texas Rattlesnake" on the show. That's right! Stone Cold Steve Austin will be making an appearance on WWE's flagship show. The show will be taking place on January 22nd. Be sure to stay tuned for any additional breaking news on new guest stars appearing on the Raw shows.
