WWE is planning to host a big-time show on January 22nd, 2018. It will mark the 25th anniversary of the flagship show in the WWE which is also the longest running weekly episodic television show in the history.
The brainchild of Vince McMahon of creating a scripted show has become a global phenomenon. So, the platinum jubilee is going to be worth to remember.
WWE is putting no stones unturned for this monumental occasion. On that night, it will mark the go-home episode of WWE Raw for the Royal Rumble PPV which means the stakes will be already high on that night. Also, the superstars from both Raw and Smackdown will be present on the show creating a big gathering.
In addition, there will be plenty of names from past or present to attend the show to make it even bigger.
This is why WWE has booked not one but two venues for the 25th anniversary. The original show will be hosted at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, whereas, a simultaneous running will be seen at the Manhattan Center in Manhattan, New York.
Till date names like The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, Kevin Nash, Ric Flair and Mick Foley have been announced to grace the show.
In addition, the reports from Inquistr.com reported that Goldberg might be the next-in-line to join the list. WWE officials have contacted him to appear on this special occasion. No updates were given on the positive outcome of this effort.
The Myth had a returning stint, last year that witnessed huge success and resulted in the main event match at Wrestlemania 33. He won the Universal Championship at WWE Fastlane to defend it against Brock Lesnar at Mania. The beast conquered him on the show that marked the end of the stint. He was later announced for the Hall of Fame ceremony.
However, in an interview with Jim Ross, Goldberg confirmed he would definitely consider a return to the WWE at a certain point,
“I’d consider it for sure. Forget about what I’ve been through. It doesn’t matter. I’d do it all over again. The ability to put my son in the stands and my wife in the stands again, I’d go through just about anything for that. And I surely didn’t say that 13 years ago. My priorities have completely changed.”
