• Another Return To Take Place On Next Week’s RAW
If you thought the returns of Hulk Hogan, Universal Brock Lesnar, John Cena & Braun Strowman weren’t enough for next week’s RAW, then don’t worry because there’s going to be another return.
According to PWInsider, two time WWE Hall of Famer “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair is also going to make an appearance on next week’s episode of RAW. No word yet on what Flair’s role is going to be (one would expect he would be used in Hogan’s segment).
Regarding Hulk Hogan’s return on RAW, he’s going to pay tribute to his late friend “Mean” Gene Okerlund.
WWE did a 10-bell salute for “Mean” Gene at the recent NXT TV tapings and you can watch it below:
