Thread: Old School Raw

  1. #1

    Old School Raw

    I am reading where this Monday night Raw will be old school. I have always enjoyed when the E brings back stars from the past. However, I do wish they would find some 'new' old-schoolers. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate Duggan, Rhodes, Flair, Simmons, etc...but it seems like the E only has a handful of legends to pick from. Simply for nostalgic reasons I'd love to see some surprise blasts from the past.

    Is it just me or who else would you like to see the E show some love with a surprise cameo?

    I suppose it's down to who wants to appear.

    I'd love to see a ramble off between Scott Steiner and the Ultimate Warrior.

    I'm guessing the main reason why we see a lot of the same legends appearing all the time are because they are on a legends contract with WWE.

    But I agree it would be nice to see some surprise appearances.

    What is "OLD SCHOOL" for WWE ? Bringing Legends on TV ? lol

    WWE will perhaps try to make RAW old school but this is not possible. Each time they tried to make something "old school", it did not work. It's not the same ERA, so they should deal with that and concentrate on creating solid storylines. Without good storylines, there is nothing but only matches.

    The Old School edition of Raw they did a few years back was pretty badass.
    I'd rather have nothing than have a lie.

    i personally love the old school stuff. Red, white, blue ropes, RAW letter entrance, Gene Okerlund........I wish these "legends" would have battle royals when they come back. They did it at Wrestlemania a few years ago, and I remember IRS almost winning one on Raw when Ted Dibiase Sr paid him off to eliminate himself.

    Oh, and Duke the Dumpster Droese for the WIN!

    Red, white and blue ropes. Light blue ring apron. Blue chairs (with headshots ) Blue mesh cage matches.

    this logo...


    Howard Finkel ring announcing. Mean Gene Oakerlund backstage interviewer.
    JR on play-by-play and Lawler on colour... not oldskool enough?
    How about Vince Macmahon play-by-play and Jessie Ventura on colour

    The undertaker to make his return to setup his wrestlemania match dressed like this...



    They get rid of the new belt they debuted 2 weeks ago and bring back this one...

    At least you've managed no to pick anyone who's dead.
