The list keeps growing. Next week may be the busiest and arguably most important week in wrestling for the last several years. There are going to be new shows debuting and some moving into their new time slot. With so many things going on, it might be easy to overlook some of the less important shows. WWE seems to know this and is stacking up their flagship show.
The Talking Stick Resort Arena has announced via Twitter that Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair will both be appearing on next week’s Monday Night Raw. The appearances will come as guests of MizTV and be part of the Monday Night Raw season premiere. Both Hogan and Flair recently appeared at Raw Reunion and both are scheduled for the first episode of SmackDown Live on Fox the following Friday.
Hogan and Flair know what it’s like to be on Monday Night Raw. Check out their appearance from earlier this year:
Opinion: It’s a good sign that they have something special planned for next week’s show, though I’m not sure how much more they can cram into a single week before the fans’ collective heads explode. There is so much going on next week that something is going to feel left out and if Monday Night Raw is packed, how much interest is that going to take away from SmackDown Live?
