During the Extreme Rules pay-per-view, WWE promoted a special ‘Raw Reunion’ for next week’s show in Tampa, Florida featuring numerous names from the past.
The July 22nd episode is going to see the return to WWE television for Steve Austin, who was announced in the promo along with Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Hulk Hogan, Kurt Angle, Ric Flair, Ted DiBiase, Christian, The Boogeyman, Shawn Michaels, Shane Helms, Jimmy Hart, Jerry Lawler, Santino Marella, D-Von Dudley, and Eric Bischoff. There were also shots of Booker T., Triple H, and Sean Waltman in the promo that aired.
These types of shows where the WWE brings back lots of names from the past have always drawn well. The last example was in January 2018 for the 25th anniversary of Raw and saw 4.5 million watch Raw, which was their highest viewership figure since March 2015.
