Steve Austin Shane Vince McMahon

Steve Austin must have had a blast at Raw 25. Not only did he get to drink beer and hand out some Stunners to Vince and Shane McMahon, Stone Cold also got to open the show in style and starred in the most popular segment of the night.

Backstage, he was more concerned about making sure he didn't lock eyes with Edge and Christian.

Find out what childish games the trio have played behind the curtain since the Attitude era in this week's article. Other big facts revolve around names like Jerry 'The King' Lawler, Roman Reigns (oh, just you wait for that one), Austin Aries and JBL.

There's also a rather jaw-dropping story about Ken Anderson's time in WWE as Mr. Kennedy. Had WWE gone through with their original booking plans, Kennedy may well be remembered for more than his loudmouth promos or leaving the company with a bad taste in his mouth...

10. Terri Runnels Wanted To Reunite With Goldust At Raw 25

WWE's big plan for ex-female stars like Trish Stratus, Torrie Wilson and Michelle McCool at Raw 25 was to whisk them all quickly through the curtain to wave at the crowd. Terri Runnels was one of the other names featured, and she wasn't too happy at the rapid-fire run through.

Upon arriving at the building, Terri was excited at the prospect of walking Goldust to the ring. When Vince McMahon cancelled that plan, she was left horrified by the 'spotlight' idea. On her Cigars, Scars and Superstars podcast, Runnels said she had emailed Vince in advance about reuniting with Goldust.

Apparently, McMahon wasn't interested.

Terri was left even more disappointed by the way legends like Trish and Wilson were used. To Runnels, the waving spot was a waste of time and failed to capitalise on having all these top female personalities under the one roof. It's hard to argue with that.
