The hypes around the 25th anniversary of Monday Night Raw is increasing since the day is almost upon us. Numerous WWE veterans have confirmed to appear for this event to make it a must watch for the fans. The list of the returnees has been increasing in recent times. However, two reverse booking is noted as well in the form of two WWE Hall of Famers.
Hulk Hogan is the first one to be noted in this context. Although WWE never confirmed him to appear on the show, the speculations were all around and the rumor mill stated that the former franchise player will be back onboard. WWE might not get another big opportunity to bring him back after banning him from WWE products in 2015. So, a reunion was also said to take place with Stone Cold and The Rock.
See you both on Raw next week???

However, the chances of the same were wiped out with a recent tweet from the Hulkster himself. A fan took her Twitter handle asking him whether he will be available for the upcoming Monday Night when he came up with a negative reply. According to him, the former WWE Champion will be busy watching Raw in his home just like every other fan. This confirms that WWE did not show intentions to let him make a comeback on TV.
Was so looking forward to being a part of RAW 25. It’s nearly impossible to travel on our down sized airlines healthy. With a total knee replacement it would be self inflicted torture. See ya everyone at Mania

This is certainly a bad news for the fans. In addition, another superstar who was announced to appear on the show has been pulled off. Kevin Nash was amongst those names who was advertised to appear on the show from the very beginning. However, his appearance was in real jeopardy after going through a terrible knee surgery. WWE continued enlisting him for the show, regardless.
But, the confirmation came from the Hall of Famer himself on Twitter as he gave updates that with his bad knee condition, it’s not possible for him to travel around cities. Hence, Kevin Nash will not be seen on WWE Raw 25th anniversary. Rather, he will be back in the WWE around Wrestlemania season. With the huge list of superstars confirmed for WWE Raw 25th anniversary, the show should not be affected by these two’s absence.
