WWE announced during this week's Monday Night Raw that the Jan. 4, 2021 episode will have a special theme — Raw: Legends Night. The show will center around stars from the past returning to the Red Brand, headlined by Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair. The company did a similar show, the Raw Reunion, back in July 2019 and managed to bring in an average audience of more than three million fans. That show was headlined by Hogan and Flair as well, but also had "Stone Cold" Steve Austin present to close out the show.
The lineup of legends includes Hogan, Flair, Kurt Angle, Beth Phoenix, Torrie Wilson. Big Show, Jacquelyn, Booker T, Sgt. Slaughter, Tatanka, Jeff Jarrett, Mickie James, Jimmy Hart, Carlito, Ivory, The Boogeyman, Mark Henry, IRS, Alicia Fox, Hillbilly Jim, Melina and Michael P.S. Hayes were also shown but not named.
