The WWE announced on tonights episode of RAW that they will be airing a special “Legends Night” on January 4th featuring the return of Hulk Hogan. Also featured will be Ric Flair, who has been on the show several times this year.
Other names announced were: Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Kurt Angle, Beth Phoenix, Torrie Wilson. Big Show, Jacquelyn, Booker T, Sgt. Slaughter, Tatanka, Jeff Jarrett, Mickie James, Jimmy Hart, Carlito, Candice Michelle, The Boogeyman, Mark Henry, IRS, Alicia Fox, Hillbilly Jim, Melina and Michael P.S. Hayes
Mike’s Take: Yet another response to their tanking ratings. The one thing they won’t do is change their booking style and stop burying the wrestlers the fans want to see wrestle the most. Oh and Carlito listed as a legend? He was cool and all, but legend? Alicia Fox? Really? Is there a more bastardized word in WWE than legend? There’s a difference between being a legend and being someone who was around a long time ago.
WWE sent out the following release:
“Get ready to ring in 2021 with one legendary night. Some of your favorite WWE Legends and Hall of Famers will return for Raw Legends Night on the first Monday Night Raw of the new year. The guest list is already set to feature two of the greatest of all time: “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan and “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair. Will your favorite WWE Legend show up on this epic night?
