    I would hate to be the fans in the building who don't get Austin. (Assuming he doesn't appear in both.)

    According to MapQuest, the two venues are only six miles away from each other so I guess it's a possibility if they really wanted to do it.

    Honestly, it would make the most sense to have the legends appearing in the Manhattan Center and having the current roster appearing in the Barclays Center. That would, of course, be an issue if they wanted any interactions between past and present but, let's be honest, a lot of the legends scheduled to appear will probably appear in quick throwaway skits or they will just have a bunch of them in the ring at once or something considering they have over 30 legends booked for a three-hour show (four if you count the pre-show) in addition to the current RAW roster and a few of the SmackDown LIVE Superstars as well.

    I found that to be a perfectly boring raw to be honest. Miz, Asuka and Braun were all fun. Everything else was filler or throwaway.

    Also just give away Hardy vs Waytt, f*** off with that. That fued is done as far as I am concerned.

    I am not the only one who was bored to sleep...

    Ross and Lawler fell asleep.

    Asuka wasn't fun. She was in an 8 woman tag match. She got a bit of heat at the end at least..

    The opening segment was fun.

    Wyatt vs Hardy was just plain daft...

    But it was the greatest Raw ever because my captain Miz got his IC belt back, which means I have closed the gap on tso :partysign:

    I thought it was OK, some fun moments, a few daft ones. Random thoughts:

    - Great heat for the opening segment

    - If they were going to do a final Taker match at WrestleMania, I would have expected a confrontation here

    - It seems like Matt Hardy isn't building any momentum, have they left the broken gimmick too late?

    - It looks like a few of the female legends have had work done, I didn't even recognise Torrie Wilson!

    - Elias continues to impress :inlove:

    - Didn't really care about the DX/Ballor Club face off

    - Didn't like seeing The Revival get squashed

    - I didn't really see the point of the legends surrounding the ring for the Lesnar/Kane/Strowman face off

    Didn't notice the heat in opening segment but enjoyable segment
    Agreed
    Not too late. They just haven't approached it in remotely the right way.
    Agreed
    Elias is the best damn thing on Raw
    Agreed
    Lazy creative.
