Stone Cold Steve Austin Announced For Raw 25th Anniversary Show

WWE have announced The Rattlesnake (and a host of other big names) for their landmark event.

WWE have confirmed a few new names for the 25th anniversary of Monday Night Raw - including Stone Cold Steve Austin. It's clear that the promotion are keen to draw a big audience for the historic event, taking place on January 22nd.

The show - which will emanate from both the Barclays Center and the historic Manhattan Center (Raw's original venue - will feature a whole host of big names from WWE history. Austin is probably the biggest, but many other popular Superstars have also been announced - many from the Attitude Era.

Joining Austin are The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, and Ric Flair. Several Attitude Era tag teams will also be present; the Dudley Boyz, the APA, and the New Age Outlaws have all been confirmed.

'Free agent' John Cena and both Bella Twins have also been announced, as well as legendary announce team Jim Ross and Jerry 'The King' Lawler. It is thought that the classic commentary duo will be stationed in the Manhattan Center.

Undertaker's appearance is sure to generate particular interest, as it's been rumoured that he will be returning to compete in another match at WrestleMania 34 - despite appearing to retire at the end of last year's show, following defeat to Roman Reigns in the main event.

Fan speculation has placed John Cena as one of the favourites to face 'Taker, and the fact that he is also scheduled to appear on Raw could prove very interesting indeed. Similarly, despite no longer being a regular member of the SmackDown roster, Cena has also been advertised for February's Fastlane pay per view. His involvement was advertised by the PPV's venue as a special appearance rather than as an in-ring competitor - although there's plenty of time for Cena to be booked in a match ahead of the event.
