WWE NEWS – WHAT HAPPENED WHEN WWE RAW WENT OFF AIR TODAY
REAL REASON WHY LEGENDS WERE U
WWE’S RAW Reunion is officially in the
history books and did it live up
to the expectations? Let’s see!!
Celebrating the Superstars from the
show’s twenty-six years,
this week’s RAW culminated in all the
legends appearing at the end,
to give a toast to Monday night RAW
Appearing alone in the ring, ‘Stone
Cold’ Steve Austin spoke highly
of the company and his fellow legends,
who looked on from the entrance ramp.
The usually emotionless Rattlesnake
also took the time to thank the legends,
the fans, and the crew, describing them
as part of the WWE family.
The Attitude Era star revealed that he’d
had an eventful day to say the least,
recording an episode of his podcast
with Hulk Hogan, meeting up with
old legends and sharing some stories
with the Nature Boy Ric Flair.
And yes, there was plenty of
beer drunk during the day.
Speaking of the beverage, Austin
ended the show with a toast to Tampa,
the United States and the rest of the
world, as the legends
joined him in the ring.
An amazing moment that showed just
how much fun WWE can be,
the toast was perhaps the best segment
during the entire three-hour show,
a show that had already had some
historic moments and great matches.
Austin had plenty of Steveweisers to
share with his fellow legends,
and though plenty of people got soaked
in the beer bash, notably
Lilian Garcia, we’re sure the former
ring announcer wouldn’t have
had things any other way.
A fantastic end to an otherwise average
show, that being said, tonight’s
RAW definitely led to an increase
in viewership.
Though Austin’s toast to WWE at the end
of the show was a feel-good moment,
there was plenty of shocks and surprises
along the way, though perhaps the most
shocking moment was seeing a current
Impact Wrestling star appear in WWE.
During a match between Rey Mysterio
and Sami Zayn, Rob Van Dam appeared,
flanked by The Hurricane, Kurt Angle and
Rey Mysterio, who watched intently
to make sure that Zayn didn’t try to
leave, during the match.
This plan clearly worked as Zayn would
end up losing to Mysterio, who would
defeat the former NXT Champion with
RVD’s very own five-star frog splash.
What many fans didn’t really understand
was, WHY RVD was in his gear?
According to PW Insider, Van Dam received
special permission from Impact
Wrestling to appear at RAW Reunion,
despite being under contract.
A former World Champion for both
companies, RVD’s presence on RAW was
certainly welcome, as the athletic
Superstar was such a big part of

the show for so many years.
Despite being a part of the Alliance when
he debuted back in 2001, Van Dam
was always loved by the crowd, and this
love would continue throughout his
years on the red brand.
Though the idea of a contracted Impact
Wrestling star appearing on RAW is
shocking, Mr. Monday Night isn’t the first
Superstar to do something like this.
Earlier this year, Rhyno appeared under
a mask at Impact’s Slammiversary
pay per view, despite being a WWE
Superstar, though the man beast
has said
he intends to leave when his
contract expires.
According to PW Insider, Van Dam’s
contract with Impact runs through Bound
for Glory this October, so don’t expect the
Whole Damn Show to be appearing
again on Monday Night RAW any
time soon.
Whilst the WWE’s RAW Reunion ended
well, this did not come easy, as the
company apparently had to jump over
many hurdles just to get the show together.
According to Dave Meltzer, many segments
for the Reunion had to be changed
at the last minute, reportedly due to
medical not allowing the
original plans to happen.
Whilst there’s no word on what exactly
was blocked by medical exactly, it can
be assumed that it was due to the
condition of some of the legends,
as though
many of them are still in incredible shape,
it’ll have been years, if not decades,
since they last took a bump.
WWE brought in tons of legends for the
WWE Raw Reunion show.
We’ll let you know what each
returning star did!

a rap battle with the Usos, then

Moving on, the WWE can be a difficult
place to work backstage.
It can also be extremely frustrating, as
history has shown Vince McMahon
will fire someone over a small infraction,
and last week, two of the company’s
longest tenuring writers were
sent packing.
A report by Pro Wrestling Sheet has
revealed that SmackDown co lead writer
Steve Guerreri, and RAW lead writer Steve
Oppenheim have been let go.
Guerreri was with the company since 2011,
whilst Oppenheim joined in 2012,
and worked in WWE’s headquarters
in Stanford.
According to the report, the termination of
these two wasn’t connected to
Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff, and
Bischoff isn’t set to take over on the blue
brand until later this week.
Back to RAW Reunion now and though
many of the legends had a blast,
one Superstar who wasn’t so lucky
was Mick Foley,
who fell victim to Bray Wyatt.
During the show, the Hardcore legend
appeared in the ring to talk about
his favourite moments, but was stopped
when the lights went out, and the
Fiend appeared behind him.
Adding insult to injury, Wyatt used
Foley’s own Mandible claw finisher
against him, causing the Best selling author
to pass out in the ring, whilst
Wyatt’s voice played on the speakers.
Since his return last week where he
attacked Finn Balor, Wyatt has shown
no remorse for his actions, and though it
seems that no Superstar, past or
present is safe from the eater of worlds,
this attack on Foley was easily one
of the best segments during the
three hour show.
And finally, today we’re looking back at
the 24/7 Championship, as the new
title went on quite a journey during the
RAW Reunion.
From the moment R-Truth entered the
arena, he was a wanted man, and it wasn’t
long until he was ambushed by Drake
Maverick during an interview.

Pinning the rapping Superstar, Maverick
won the title for the third time, and
kicked off the first of many, many, many
title changes during the show.
Attempting to escape, presumably to
finally consummate his marriage to
wife Renee Michelle, Maverick wouldn’t
get far as after seeing the
Boogeyman, the British Superstar would
be scared witless,
collapsing on the floor.
An easy target for anyone who walked
past, it was WWE Hall of
Famer Pat Patterson who got lucky,
pinning Maverick to win the 24/7 title,
nearly 20 years after the Canadian became
the Hardcore champion back in 2000.
Not only that, but Patterson made
history during RAW Reunion,
as at 78 years old, Patterson is
now the oldest person to
ever win a title in WWE.
Unfortunately for the record breaker,
his reign would be
short lived, as later on during the show,
we saw Gerald Brisco with the title,
as it seems the stooges turned on each
other over the 24/7 title.
As the third new champion on the show,
Brisco would only get a few feet
before he was attacked by Kelly Kelly,
who won the title, becoming the very
first woman to win the gold.
Backstage, Kelly tried to celebrate her win
with Candice Michelle and Melina,
but was shocked to discover that Melina
had trained to become a referee.
Before she knew what was happening,
Kelly was attacked by Candice,
who became the 5th person to win the
gold during the show.
Much like the others though, Michelle’s
reign wouldn’t last long,
as she would be attacked by Alundra
Blayze, who made her tap out,
the first time the title has changed
hands via submission.
Heading to the stage, Blayze threatened
to put the title in the trash,
something she had done to the WWF
Women’s title when she jumped
to WCW in December 1995, but was
interrupted by the
Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase.
Proving his mantra that everyone does
indeed have a price, DiBiase
bought the title from Blayze, making
the affluent Superstar
the new champion,
as well as Blayze a wealthy woman.

Planning on leaving the show in style,
DiBiase got into a limo, (of course),
but was ambushed by Maverick,
who won the title from him,
making Drake now a four-time
champion.
Attempting to escape once again, Maverick
was chased all over the arena,
and though Mick Foley made a terrible
attempt to grab him,
the British Superstar made it back to
them limo, where his wife
was waiting for him.
Unfortunately for the champion, Renee
wasn’t the only one waiting for him,
as R-Truth re-appeared, and after attacking
the British star, won the title for the
tenth time, escaping the show with the
title he had lost at the start,
with Maverick’s wife still in the limo.
Like most weeks, the 24/7 title
escapades was definitely a
highlight to the show, as it seems fans
have finally gotten behind
the new title after some initial backlash.
Having Truth somehow leave Tampa as the
champion was certainly a surprise,
but it seems only a matter of time before the
rapping Superstar loses the gold,
one more time.
So, what is the final verdict of the
WWE Raw Reunion?
Well, obviously it was a massive event
with some hits but many misses!
It was fun to see the legends again, and
Austin certainly did a great job
at the end of the show with his toast.
Though we’ve had a lot of good things
to say about the show
we can’t help but feel disappointed that
WWE didn’t do a big angle
to keep fans tuning in next week.
In addition, getting to see a Stunner by
Austin would have been good,
fans including us wanted KO and Austin
share the ring and give some
stunners to some bad guys!!!
Though many legends were there, only
so many were actually used,
as even top names like Ric Flair did
little but just strut around,
as it seemed that the WWE was ready
to congratulate itself for just
having legends appear, without giving
many of them an actual reason
to be a part of the show.
Despite this though, it’s clear that
the WWE and the legends
were having fun, and whilst the show
was objectively great, the company
clearly has things it can improve upon,
if they do another reunion, next year.

  1. Wow the best thing that they got going right now R-Truth was nowhere to be found he should have been the one doing things with the 24/7 belt

  2. I was severely disappointed by the raw reunion, why hasn't the show ditched the PG Rating and Switched to the attitude era? I am still seeing no progress as I thought the raw reunion was actually going to showcase some interesting things, Idk what it is they are doing but they need to change the context of the product or just shut their wrestling organization down, I am seriously sick of seeing this PG Bullshit, I really don't see the difference between raw and smackdown nor do I get the difference between smackdown being on fox instead of Scifi like seriously I have given up all hope for this company, until they return back to that which made the show good back in the day I will for one cease watching it. WWE is not a kids show its supposed to be an adult sports show but whatever I guess.

  3. Seeing this just reminds me how sad this current era of WWE is & makes me want to travel back in time to be mesmerized & most importantly entertained

  4. Rvd appeared cause impact in no longer a threat and wwe has their claws in them, soon impact will be part of wwe just like ecw and wcw are,

  5. Is it me or did it seem like Shawn Michaels at the end on the stage just seemed like he did not want to be there like his ego was hating on Stone Cold Steve Austin

  6. Honestly, it was crap. It had so much potential and could have helped so many talent advance up in the eyes of casual viewers. Matches made no sense, and why even had jobber matches on such a important show….. legends did nothing what, all the advertising for them to win 24/7 title…….you could have done way better. You had Austin, Hogan, Flair, Cena, and u had them appear on tv for 4 min, and almost all of them were on at the very last 10 min……wtf?? No thought went into this

  7. I knew the highest ratings segment would be the very end with Austin. That was the Only part I watched. Can't stomach wwe but had to watch Stone Cold Steve Austin, The King!

  8. The Legends did have a reason to be a part of the show. They are legends and were invited to the reunion. You don’t really expect old broken down wrestlers to fight anymore?Saying they were just standing around,shows the Degeneration Zero In you

  9. WWE is no longer comfortable doing business because there are more exciting new competitors, many fans turning to AEW, WWE have no new ideas, forced to call veterans for fans' bait, very funny

  10. Clearing just trying to hit 10 minute mark with a waste-of-time-recap. I'm not being mean, I'm just sayin'.

  11. I don’t know what Raw Reunion Show you watched. The show I watched sucked. Poor matches, wasted stars walking around lost, 25 pizza, sub, car insurance commercials every hour ( the same ones ). Obviously you are easily entertained or paid off like the wrestlers who participated in that farce. Then they have the nerve to show it again.

  12. Have Hornswaggle win the 24-7 title. Then he can wrestle Von Strongman at Summerslam, where he fake lifts him over his head, slams him and pins him for the win, while “the real American” plays. Then put that piece of crap belt in a car crushed and crush it.

  13. Why were legends use on Monday night raw because that’s trying to compete with AEW because in the last four weeks they have been getting there butts kick and RaW,Smackdown and Nxt have the same script writers and he was firer last weekend

  14. Just seeing pictures of the head writers of raw and smackdown for the last 10 years has just explained to me why it's been so poor in that time!

  15. I was ecstatic to see Kelly Kelly there! By far the most beautiful of any female wrestler!
    I was really hoping, and disappointed that Sting wasnt part of it!
    I miss Bret Hart as well!

  16. Why was RVD in his gear? Why NOT?!!! Imagine if Stone Cold had shown up wearing his vest, jean shorts and knee braces? It would've been awesome!

  17. What kills me is when they bring guys back that are still currently employed backstage by the wwe. They act like they’re giving you a treat but those guys are backstage every week. They always pull that stunt with Sergeant Slaughter, Pat Patterson and Jerry Briscoe. In they past they always did it with Steamboat and Arn Anderson.

  18. great video from the best channel on utube. you hit this one out of the park. thank you and keep up the good work

  19. He asked Charly or wtf her name is, if she wanted to "join the hoe train". So if you are going to attempt to make a living as a hack info regurgitator, at least get ya shit straight.

  20. Pg era sucks stone cold cannot city his old style promos because they cannot cuss or do anything good anymore

  21. In my opinion, second only to Linda McMahon, Lillian Garcia is and always will be the most respected female in WWE history. She has always been a classy, glamorous and respected person. As she should be. It bothers me to say this but, the fact that she was an announcer and not exactly talent, says a whole lot about her.

  22. Maybe this is completely off topic but, who else misses the HARDCORE TITLE? I would love to have a replica of it. The broken version.

  23. Nothing will ever compare to the attitude era. I don't watch the cotton candy fluff WWE puts out today.

  24. Technically alandra blaze never got pinned or submitted !!!!!!
    So longest reigning champion ever will go to her

  25. I loved RVD’s tweet about it: “When you get so hi that you forget to show up to IMPACT and show up on RAW instead.”
