Vince McMahon has dropped the idea of bringing back former RAW main eventers to wrestle a special one-off match leading to the 1,000th RAW episode in July.
The whole idea began with Vader, who was brought back last week and squashed Heath Slater in a quick match.
The reason for the idea being nixed is that WWE were concerned that Vader got a far bigger pop on last week’s show than anyone on the current WWE roster, including CM Punk and John Cena. WWE officials believe it comes across badly that the fans are so into nostalgia stuff and not the current product.
WWE went in a different direction this past week on RAW by bringing in Roddy Piper for a segment with Wendi Ritcher and Cyndi Lauper however Wrestling Observer Newsletter editor Dave Meltzer has also hinted that McMahon was likely to be unhappy with that too as despite only doing an on-mic segment and not wrestling, he (and also Mick Foley in the opening segment) still got a bigger pop than anyone else on the roster!
