As seen during last night’s WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view event, WWE announced a “RAW Reunion” for next week’s broadcast. As of now, the following names are confirmed: Eric Bischoff, Steve Austin, Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Christian, Kurt Angle, Shawn Michaels, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, The Boogeyman, Shane Helms, Ted DiBiase Sr., Jimmy Hart, D-Von Dudley, Jerry Lawler, Sgt. Slaughter and Santino Marella.
During the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said that there will be even more people than that, and could be as many as 35 or more. He said:
“I don’t know if this is a real number, but I was told by someone in the company…I gave a bunch of names asking if they were going to be there and everyone I asked about was a yes. And then they said there’s 35 more just like it.”
As of this writing, The Rock is not scheduled to appear on the show.
Meltzer also suggested that with this RAW being the Monday before the second quarter financials, the higher rating it will likely get can be used by WWE as an example that they’re turning things around.
