We’ve had many readers send us word that WWE is promoting a Battle Royal featuring Raw stars of the last 15 years.
Gabe sent this in: I noticed when I set my DVR to record the Raw 15th anniversary that it mentioned it featured Bret Hart along with Stone Cold and some others. Dont know if this means Bret Hart will be on the show or not but thought I might pass it along. Note from Ryan Clark: As of now, Bret Hart isn’t scheduled for the show unless by some miracle something was worked out recently.
Percy “Paul Bearer” Pringle issued the following statement on his official website regarding him appearing at the Raw 15th Anniversary next week: “Many of you are aware that this coming Monday, December 10, 2007 at 7pm (CT) on USA, will be the 3-hour 15th Anniversary of MONDAY NIGHT RAW. To settle some suspicions, I was contacted by WWE officials last week requesting that I be a part of the broadcast. As much as I would like to do so, my current schedule completely prohibits it. :-(“
In addition to WWE confirming Steve Austin, Hulk Hogan, Mick Foley, Eric Bischoff, Sunny, Trish Stratus and Lita for the Raw 15th Anniversary, The Wrestling Observer is reporting that Mae Young, Gangrel and Jim Neidhart are also scheduled to be apart of the show. You can expect any stars from the last 15 years to have been contacted to appear on the show Monday, just as long as they aren’t under contract with TNA.
Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler talk about Raw’s 15th Anniversary this Monday at WWE.com in a new “Around the Ring” with Michael Cole.
Daniel Murphy sent word that if you have Monday Night Raw on a series recording, this week’s 15th Anniversary show may not be preset to record due to a change in the name of the program. So if you normally DVR the show, you will need to go in and fix it.
