Was never a massive fan of his, but paying homage to Umaga by doing the Samoan Spike and Yokozuna with the sit down spash from the 2nd rope were both very classy gestures from the big man. Kudos to him

I thought it would be Rikishi! I literally marked out when he came out. His dance with the Usos = FANTASTIC. I couldn't stop laughing.

Was very nice to see him on Raw, and the 2 homages to Umaga and Yokozuna were very cool.

When the lights went out after the match, I was expecting to see Scotty 2 Hotty and Grand Master Sexay in that ring, but was not disappointed one bit to see the Usos in there with their Dad. Very nice moment.

The homages were a nice touch.

I thought the same when the lights went out. It was cool to see father and son's together.

Couldn't agree more. I thought it was very nice of him to do that. If I'm not mistaken, he even made a cross gesture before the spike. It was nice that the WWE let him and his sons have their moment too.

He is a class act. Believe it or not I used to bodyguard him and the Tonga Kid when they used to come to a casino I worked at about 10 yrs ago. They were cool guys. I don't know why in the blue hell they needed a bodyguard, cause they were MONSTERS and I was the only one who really noticed them...LOL

I bodyguarded a lot of UFC fighters, wrestlers, b-list celebs and most of them were complete assholes, but Rikishi and Tonga were not.

What he did last night paying homage to Yoko and Umaga was class. And the dance with his boys was nostalgic too.

This definitely needed a threat. I legit marked out for Rikishi. He was a staple in WWE for years. I'm surprised they didnt mention him running over Stone Cold with a car. The sit down was a move that he did as a finisher during his time but I do think he did both as tributes which is awesome. I really wanted him to have a longer match but I;m happy with what they allowed. He still looked good in there. I've legit missed Rikishi alot. I think people forget how good he was. And when he danced with his sons, that was by far one of the greatest Raw moments in recent history. The feelings it brought back...I just needed Jimmy to do the worm and I would have been fulfilled.

It was brillaint i loved watching Riikishi years ago and it was great to see him again. If he danced with too cool i would have soiled myself but the usos was just as markable!

He can still go! The dancing was a bit shoddy but still cool. Wish he'd manage his sons already

When the lights went out, I feared Brodus Clay's music would play. Glad that didn't happen. Loved seeing the Uso's show up though.

I was very happy to see Rikishi do his thing - and yes, I flipped when I saw him motion for the Samoan Spike. His (and DDP's) special appearances are my favorites to date. And then the dance session with his sons was an excellent feel good moment to me. I don't remember why he parted ways with WWE, but I personally would not be unhappy to see him come back (at least for a time) to continue to entertain - especially as a manager to the Usos. Those guys have massive potential and could use all the support they could get to make it REALLY big. Regardless, major props to the awesome WWE alumni.

If I remember correctly it was over his weight and them feeling like he needed to lose some and learn to manage it better but I might be wrong.

Have to agree with everyone. I marked the hell out when Rikishi came out. The tributes in the match were very, very cool. Was a nice touch. The dance at the end was the icing on the cake.

I was a bit upset when the lights went out. I was hoping for Scotty and Grand Master would be there.......nice consolation prize I suppose.

Great of Rikishi to do what he did. I'm surprised he could still wrestle after all this time.

I also marked out over this one, and I also was really expecting Too Cool to show up when the lights went out, awesome moment. Loving the weekly cameos by "Raw Legends". They have done a pretty damn good job with it.

I honestly was happier it was the Usos.

Did Anyone thought of the most common person to come out, when the lights went out? The Undertaker.

Um...I'm sure the Sit Down Splash was a way for Rikishi to pay homage to Yokozuna all along...but he used that finisher most of his career. The Samoan SPike was great though. I thought it was very touching. I love how the crowd didn't have a fucking clue that it was a tribute to Umaga...Eddie Fatu...such boneheads a majority of the live crowd/fans are.
