Pro Wrestling Since 1997


Update on the plans for the 1,000th Raw

– As we previously noted, WWE is advertising a DX reunion (Triple H and Shawn Michaels) for the first weekly live three hour Raw on 7/23, which is also the 1,000 episode.

– The plan is announce matches ahead of time, and promote the episode as PPV caliber show.

– WWE has reached out to many past stars to appear, including Roddy Piper, Dusty Rhodes, Sgt. Slaughter, Jim Duggan, Gene Okerlund and Jimmy Hart.

– There is talk of Undertaker and Bobby Heenen making an appearance. Heenan’s availability for the show will likely depend on his health at the time.

    Get Bobby. I know what shape he’s in now, but from what I’ve heard he still has the heart. He deserves it. Get Bobby.

    Great Two and a half hour’s of talk and lame jokes, and maybe a half hour of wrestling. WWE= WORST WRESTLING EVER!

    Sid vicious said he was contacted. Well, he hinted such. I would mark out. Him and warrior. And of course bobby. I’ll probably cry though. I won’t lie. Poor guy.

  9. Ryan: What the hell are you talking about? They had their 900th episode a while back and did a big celebration. This is the only time they’ve celebrated 1000.

    I really hope Bobby Heenan is well enough to appear – wouldn’t mind him calling a match with Vince IMHO.

    I’d also like to see a change from the same old regular & well trodden paths that we’ve seen many times previously on these classic / old school specials. Why can’t we have The Mountie as a guest referee instead of Foley; a Barber Shop instead of a Piper’s Pit; Medusa / Molly Holly / Sunny / Chyna / Sable instead of the Trish / Lita / Mae Young usual fayre. Rick Martel or Bob Holly appearances in favour of Slaughter / Duggan / Doink et al. Even if they’re not able to wrestle, how about Bushwhackers / Demolition Ax & Smash / Rhythm & Blues reunions in favour of IRS & Dusty Rhodes being in the background of another predictable Ron Simmons “Damn” sketch. Get Tugboat in to recreate the best wrestling moment with the Shockmaster. Road Dogg as guest ring announcer. How about an Animal run in to beat up his brother?

    I really don’t care if what they try doesn’t work out just as long as it looks like they’ve put some effort into doing something new & different.
    Hands up for a Skinner Vs Big Bully Busick Vs Nailz triple threat!? OK well maybe not that.

    Needs more Steve Blackman.

  12. Gurn Blanstid says:

    Ahmed Johnson we need Ahmed Johnson!

  13. X-Pac says:

    X-Pac! MAKE SUM NOIZE!!!!

  14. Zach says:

    Have Ahmed Johnson/Big T. punch Ron Simmons in the throat when he says DAMN maybe have him beat down Simmons, Mark Henry, The Godfather, and them white rappers with a 2×4 and then go into a Shamrock vs. Rocky Miavia.

    I think it’d be cool to see The Brain again
