    Default The Greatest of All Time Set to Return on Network Launch Day

    Hogan has reportedly had an agreement to return to WWE for some time, since his TNA departure. He was rumored to return for an appearance at the WWE Network announcement in Las Vegas, but the company reportedly changed those plans the night before.
    Wrestling royalty is out in force for the launch. Undertaker is booked for that show too, and Jimmy Hart will apparently be there.

    Seems like they want this to be a Raw 1000-lite type show.

    Wouldn't be shocked to see HBK and maybe even Austin as well.

    This will remain in my sig until The Rock gets his WWE World Heavyweight Championship rematch.

    If the greatest is set to return, then i can't wait for The Rock to come back. Unless you're talking about Austin? It has to be one of those two, unless you just didn't know there's already a thread about Taker coming back.

    Certainly. Probably not for his talent, but in terms of turning the WWF from a regional entity, to a worldwide pop culture phenomenon.

    "Every man's heart one day beats its final beat, his lungs breath their final breath. And if what that man did in his life, makes the blood pulse through the body of others, and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized by the storytellers, by the loyalty, by the memory, of those who honor him and make whatever the man did live forever."

    Awesome news.

    It'll be nice to see The Hulkster return home to the WWE.

    I thought by the title it was going to be an actual set like the giant smackdown fist.

    I didn't make that connection, but that would have been amazing! Much cooler than seeing Hogan's old ass back in the WWE.

    They ought to be working to make this bigger than Raw 1000, IMO, if not in pre-show hype then certainly in post-show buzz. It's going to be one of the biggest days in the history of the WWE.

    And on that historic day, I'm glad the Hulkster will be sauntering home triumphantly after making Dixie get on her knees and beg.

    Todd, did you honestly expect everyone that would post in this thread to just nod in agreement when you made the title?

    I think that's something people have missed in regards to the speculation on what will happen at the Chamber to set up WrestleMania -

    Some serious shit will go down at the end of that Raw. They have to create the biggest buzz possible on the biggest day in their history.

    In many ways, it will be the biggest moment.

    I was interested in the reaction.

    If people disagreed and we had a discussion, where's the harm?

    Call me cray cray all you want, but I genuinely feel Bryan is the favourite to win the chamber at this point simply so they can roll into the show with the biggest amount of buzz possible. Wyatts and Shield will have carte blanche to have a MOTY candidate that night as well and get people talking.

    As much as people like to talk about WWE like they're dummies, they're not. We're going to see some shrewd shit in a couple weeks.

    We Want Muhammed Hassan.

    Seriously though, he was a great character. They just went a bit too far with it and upset the politically correct crowd.

    I've got Bryan winning the Chamber too. In fact I'd be surprised if he doesn't.

    I just want him to come out to his Jimmy Hendrix theme. 2002 Hogan has always been my favorite.

    Toshiaki Kawada has never been on Raw?


    "There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."

    It never fit him when he was wearing the red and yellow. Hendrix is, was, and shall 4 life represent the nWo.

    Eddie Guerrero had his fair share of Raw appearances, but I'd rather not have WWE do something tasteless for the sake of having him back...
    That's all, folks.

    I certainly don't want to see Triple H desecrating another corpse.

    Besides, there'll be plenty of time for the kicking of dead things during the Network's Monday Night War programme.
