Man I hope this show is epic. I hope they bring out as many legends as they can and make this truly special. They have 3 hours, they need to use it wisely. I hope the crowd is good too to make it awesome. Looking forward to this.

According to the @Wrestlevotes Twitter account, WWE is attempting to make both the Barclays Center and the Manhattan Center - both sites for Raw's 25th Anniversary show - as "equal" venues in terms of show quality. The account also suggested that the "surprises" will be at the Barclays Center while the "legends" will appear at the Manhattan Center.

According to PWInsider.com, Eric Bischoff is now scheduled for the RAW 25th anniversary special. While he has appeared on WWE Network specials and DVDs in recent years, this will be Bischoff’s first appearance on RAW since the 15th anniversary special in 2007.

I""M BACK....AND BETTER THEN EVER! this show just keeps getting better and better, I don't think there will be any story advancement but it will be a fun awesome episode, I imagine Eric Bichoff and Stone Cold to have a stand off, there will be a lot of stunners given out. If they want to add a shock they could have Jason Jordan accidentally cost Roman his title which I could see. I think they are going to try and give The Miz the most IC title reigns, maybe some legends will announce they will be in the Rumble or something. Like X Pac says he will enter the rumble and what not. Ima watch it, and keep my eye on it.

With RAW’s 25th Anniversary show just a little over a week away, several past WWE Superstars have already been confirmed for the show. “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, X-Pac and a few other names have been confirmed for the show but two major names that played an important role in WWE’s success have not — The Rock and Hulk Hogan.

According to PWInsider, The belief is that if The Rock’s schedule is open and he can make it, he will be there. It’s often hard at timesfor The Rock to leave the set of a movie or television and fly out to make an appearance for WWE.

Regarding Hulk Hogan, it’s still unknown if he will be there or not as his relationship with WWE could still be in question after the whole sex tape/racist remarks that got him initially fired from the company. It’s been rumored for a while now that some within WWE want Hogan to return to the company and enough time has passed since his termination. However, there is also internal concern with how the sponsors would react if they did decide to bring him back to the company.

We will keep you updated if either of their status’ changes for the event.
