WWE brought back a number of old school stars for a special RAW Legends Night and many in the WWE locker room did not take kindly to the booking of some legends.
Stars from WWE’s past such as Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Goldberg, Big Show, Sgt. Slaughter, Molly Holly, Jimmy Hart, Mark Henry, Booker T, Melina, Ron Simmons, Teddy Long, Tatanka, Mickie James and Torrie Wilson all made guest appearances.
Some of these WWE legends were put into segments with Randy Orton and pushed the line as to what was storyline as what was considered crossing the line as Orton blasted some of these legends in backstage segments that made some of these all-time great WWE Superstars look much less than legends.
WWE was clearly playing off the “Legend Killer” gimmick of Randy Orton but some talents in the back thought that these past legends were booked poorly in bad taste and should have been given a much more respectful role to play.
Some current WWE talents discussed amongst themselves “If this is how WWE treats their Legends then what does that mean for us when we become them?”.
WWE has a habit of using the expense of others to advance on-screen storylines but this was not he case as Randy Orton went on to beat Jeff Hardy in a singles match.
There was no clear explanation giving when we reached out for a response other than Vince McMahon was responsible for the final script. The WWE locker room is well aware how WWE does things and to be in the major leagues there’s just some things you will have to learn to deal with. Stay tuned to SW for the latest updates.
