This past Monday, the 15th of November, featured a Monday Night Raw from the WWE that was supposed to be like none other before. Reason being because it was the celebration of all of the WWE legends from the past, as well as a few from the present.
You can look at most of them and remember many, like "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan and his "Ohhhhhh" chant, and Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka and his hang loose pose. Those are all well and good, but the event did lack a bunch of superstars that should have been there and should have been invited.
You cannot have a WWE legends night without Hulk Hogan, I am sorry. Hogan is arguably the most popular wrestler still alive today, and is active with reality television and commercial advertisements so that you do not forget about him. The Hulk's golden goatee and gigantic "pythons" alone make him recognizable, and since everyone from the 1980s until the early 2000s remembers him and how kid-friendly he was, he should have been invited.
Now I understand why the Rock wasn't there, as he was probably filming a movie and enjoying his multi-million dollar lifestyle. But he still should have come because he was the man everyone came to see when he was a wrestler, and his stage promos are still the best in the business today.
So there is no Rock, and there is no Hulk Hogan. All is well and good, right? Wrong. The WWE decided to put Irwin R. Scheyster (IRS), "Cowboy" Bob Orton, and Arn Anderson out there instead. Give me a break. I understand the honoring of such greats as "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, Nikolai Volkoff, the Iron Sheik, and even the "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase, because they were memorable and such outlandish characters in their day.
