WWE RAW goes "Old School" tonight in Buffalo, New York with Wrestlemania 29 just five weeks away it's sure to be filled with a lot of big surprises, story line developments, and much more. WWE will also welcome a parade legendary wrestlers and a one of the most beloved WWE characters of all time are expected to return.
Today WWE posted at the top of their new stream the ominous logo of the Undertaker. This surely a tease of what's to come on tonight's RAW. The Undertaker returned to the WWE ring for a test match two weeks ago in Waco, Texas at a non-televised event. Though 'Taker did wrestle in a tag match with Sheamus at the event, WWE acknowledged the return lightly on RAW and their online network but made no clear indication of when the Deadman would return to TV.
The Undertaker has been all but locked down to face former WWE Champion CM Punk at Wrestlemania 29 on April 7th, to defend the white whale of Professional Wrestling, his undefeated Wrestlemania winning streak. Punk who came within an inch of knocking John Cena out of his WWE title match at WM29 last week on RAW, will surely come into Buffalo wanting to smash his way onto the 'Mania card.Punk kept calling himself a "god" last week on RAW, maybe that language has stirred the most mythical force in the WWE Universe, the Undertaker.
Below is a list of WWE Hall of Famers and Legends who are confirmed to appear on 'Old School' RAW tonight on USA Network.
-"Mean" Gene Okerlund
-"Hacksaw" Jim Duggan
-"The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase
-Honky Tonk Man
-New Age Outlaws
Look for the legends to interact with current WWE talent in backstage segments, matches, and more.
WWE is also advertising Triple H for tonight's RAW to follow up his surprise return last week, when he saved Mr. McMahon in a bloody brawl with Brock Lesnar. Though Lesnar is not advertised for RAW this week, look for the Game to lay down a challenge for Wrestlemania 29.
The reigning WWE Champion the Rock will be on RAW for after missing last week's show in Dallas. Rocky has been busy filming his new reality TV series, the Hero. Since Rock is set to once again face John Cena at Wrestlemania, look for the war of words to begin between those two.
