The 25th anniversary of Monday Night Raw is almost upon us. In less than two weeks time, WWE’s flagship show will air from both the Barclays Center and the Manhattan Center and there is a star-studded cast being lined up for it. Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Dudley Boyz, Kevin Nash and The Undertaker are just a few of the names that have been confirmed for Raw’s birthday celebrations.
Despite all of those names, plus a lot more, Mick Foley has his own very specific and slightly odd choice for who he would like to see return for the event. The former Raw General Manager recently spoke with Planeta Wrestling on the subject and divulged that Al Snow should receive an invite to the show. Foley did admit that he’s ‘not sure if Al qualifies as a legend’.
Foley also discussed some of his favorite Raw moments during the interview and there are no prizes for guessing what topped that list. The best selling author’s absolute favorite moment was when he won the WWE Championship from The Rock in 1999. Coming in second was a match he had with Stone Cold in 1996. Surprisingly at number three was a recent one when Stephanie McMahon fired him from his role as GM.
Mick Foley has been one of many WWE Superstars that has been key to Raw’s success over the past 25 years and why it continues to air each and every Monday night. In fact, the moment Foley selected to be his personal favorite may be one of the most important in the show’s history. It was WCW revealing that the title change was going to happen that made around 600,000 fans change the channel and turn the tides in the Monday Night War.
Judging by the names that WWE has already managed to accrue for the 25th anniversary show, you can rest assured that it is going to be one to remember. We may find out if The Undertaker will wrestle again when he shows up for the first time since his loss at WrestleMania 33, and that will truly be just the tip of the iceberg. Plus the addition of Al Snow to the show would be pretty good too, we guess.
