Bob Backlund was said to be very popular in the WWE locker room at RAW on Monday, particularly with the younger guys on the roster. Several people noted how great Backlund looked considering he's sixty-two.

Backlund spoke with WWE.com after RAW, saying he couldn't believe that fans popped for him the way that they did when he came out. He said he was thrilled to be there and is looking forward to the 1,000th RAW.
