We are about 2 months away from the Raw 25th-anniversary show that is scheduled to take place on January 22, 2018, from two locations in New York City. It will be the first time that Raw will air live from the Manhattan Center (the home of the show during the first few years) and the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
WWE has already announced that Kevin Nash, Shawn Michaels, and The Undertaker will be there. We also know that Mick Foley, Bret Hart, and Ric Flair are also scheduled to be there but WWE has much more planned for that night.
They have contacted other legends to appear on the show. Some of them will be there in person and others will appear via pre-taped segments, similar to what they did for their 15th-anniversary show in 2007. Also, the show will be “all hands on deck” with every Superstar from Raw and Smackdown expected to be there. Coincidentally, it will be the “go home” show for the Royal Rumble so expect a big finish to that show. One person in the company pitched the idea of having one of the legends get physical and that would lead to them being announced as an entrant into the Royal Rumble. It would be a different way to incorporate a legend into the match rather than introducing him as a surprise like they’ve done over the years.
