Report: WWE Treating 1,000th RAW Like Top PPV

Justin LaBar

WWE RAWThe Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting WWE is treating the 1,000th RAW like a top pay-per-view.

WWE is reaching out to all the stars of yesterday they usually bring back for special appearances such as Jim Duggan, Gene Okerlund, Roddy Piper, Dusty Rhodes and Sgt. Slaughter. WWE is also looking to bring back other stars who we don't normally see. Reportedly Bobby "The Brain" Heenan's name was brought up but his poor health is a concern.

The milestone RAW episode is expected to contain both a new and old school production feel. The plan is to announce a quality pay-per-view lineup with at least a solid three weeks to build around. WWE is also trying to get The Undertaker's appearance to be locked into place to advertise ahead of time.
