Why Raw 20th Anniversary was a good show by Justin Watry

January 18th 2013 - Why #RAW20 Wasn't Disappointing|
WWE never hyped up that Undertaker would be there.
WWE never announced Shawn Michaels to appear.
WWE never promoted a Stone Cold in-ring segment.
WWE never said a ton of legends would return.
WWE never said a word about such events. Thus, I don't see why fans set themselves up for the disappointment. As usual, everyone began thinking that legends, Hall of Famers, and past stars would be there.
To no surprise, the reaction was pure negativity after Raw went off the air. Why? Probably because of those LOVELY and ALWAYS ACCURATE online reports! Man, those 'dirt sheets' are correct, aren't they? Don't you love reading them? They sure do know how to rally guys up and then leave them in a cloud of dust. Post a name, watch it spread from one website to another, all the while have ZERO credibility. By the time Raw begins, the 'internet wrestling community' is expecting every top star from the past 20 years to appear!
My only question is: WHY?
Why would Taker show up two weeks before the Royal Rumble? WHY?
Why would Brock Lesnar be there now? WHY?
Why would Shawn Michaels show up unannounced in January? WHY?
Why would fans (again and again) think Stone Cold is coming back? WHY?
Once again, lots of folks fell victim to the dreaded 'dirt sheets' that never cease to amaze me. They are rarely, rarely correct in their stories, yet it is treated as the gospel to some. It's not. We are now in 2013 ladies and gentlemen! If you don't see that by now, then I can't help you. I thought Raw on Monday night was an entertaining show with some great wrestling action, tons of surprise appearances and excellent production from WWE.
Here's to another 20 years!
