WWE legends Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Shawn Michaels, and Hulk Hogan are scheduled to appear on the January 19 edition of RAW, which is the final RAW before the Royal Rumble event on January 25.
In case you missed it somehow, Kevin Nash was arrested for battery after a fight with his son on Christmas Eve. After the arrest, WWE suspended Nash, who hasn’t been on WWE television since August. The suspension was met with fans rolling their eyes, as Nash is a very irregular character on WWE TV. As a matter of fact, WWE even addressed the fact that Nash hasn’t been a regular character on WWE television since 2004 in their public statement about the Nash situation.
“Kevin Nash has not regularly performed for WWE since January 2004. He is currently under a non-wrestling ‘legends’ contract which has been immediately suspended until this domestic dispute is resolved.”
If the situation doesn’t get resolved before the January 19 RAW, WWE will likely pull Kevin Nash from the show, which could result in them pulling Scott Hall as well. As of right now, Nash is still being advertised for the show on January 19, and if WWE pulls him from the show, it’ll probably be a last-minute call.
The plan for what the four WWE legends will be doing at the Royal Rumble go-home show hasn’t been announced. However, WWE could have Nash, Hall, Hogan, and Michaels do a legends panel, where they would weigh in on the Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena storyline, similar to what Shawn Michaels, Hulk Hogan, and Ric Flair did before the Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena rematch at Night of Champions.
There’s also a chance that Shawn Michaels could be coming back to convince John Cena to reinstate The Authority, and Hogan, Nash, and Hall will do their own thing as the NWO.
Triple H, who is one of Kevin Nash’s real-life best friends, could really push to have Nash appear on the show even if the domestic situation hasn’t yet been resolved by January 19. But, Triple H may be overruled by Vince McMahon, as Nash’s appearance probably won’t have to do with anything important on the show, and WWE will likely replace him with another name from the past.
