WWE is kicking off the new year with a little bit of nostalgia. Earlier tonight on RAW, the company announced that the Monday, January 4 episode will host "Legends Night" on the USA Network.
The commercial that aired during the show, as of this writing, is yet to have been uploaded onto social media. The special edition of RAW will feature names such as "The Immortal" Hulk Hogan, Kurt Angle, Beth Phoenix, Torrie Wilson, and more.
WWE has had legends specials on RAW in the past, and it's no surprise that they are choosing to bring back this concept right now to kick-off 2021.
Is WWE RAW "Legends Night" the companies answer for the recent rating slump?
With ratings for WWE RAW hitting record lows as of late, the WWE Universe is already speculating that this special was a reactionary move by the company to get a bump in the ratings to make the USA Network happy.
These specials have been successful in the past, so it's not a surprise to see WWE attempting to go this route heading into the Royal Rumble.
Other names are seen in the commercial include...
- "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair
- Sgt. Slaughter
- Alicia Fox
- Mickie James
- Michael "PS" Hayes
It's probably a certainty that these aren't all of the names scheduled to be at "Legends Night" on January 4, but additional names are yet to be announced. Surely, WWE will be making more announcements in the next two weeks to hype up this special edition of Monday Night RAW.
