To answer fuelinjected's question, I know they are doing a special in house thing for the best moments of Raw, but I assume the Raw before that show is the one where everyone will come back if not then Vince has lost it.
People I expect back for that show:
Taker Austin Rock Mick Bret Hogan- I doubt it
A Fan- I would expect Bret to come back, but thats the one person who is more 50/50 than anyone.
The special WWE is advertising for the Anniversary is Tuesday, January 14th for the highlight show. Apperantly that is the one where everyone is going to wear tuxes and make it look like the Slammies. I do think the wrestlers they are trying to get for are either for that show or the Monday prior to that. I would assume Vince would want Austin, Rock and so on to boost the ratings and maybe even set up Wrestlemania since Royal Rumble will only be a week away. However, Vince has gone kinda Howard Hughes on us, so expect all the WWE stars to be on the highlight show that no fans are going to be a part of.
A Fan- Anyone know when the 500th Raw is going to be?
But if the Raw show is on Tuesday, does that mean they would tape it on the weekend or something? Or tape it on Monday before or after the regular Raw show? If they do the show live, won't the Smackdown wrestlers not be part of the show because they are taping SD somewhere else?
Color me baffled!

Ron Killings said he will be there, which in theory could lead to something interesting if WWE plays their cards right. I know he is in NWA, but imagine him accusing Booker T of being a Uncle Tom and going off on him.... Booker vs Killings would be a pretty tight feud.

That's a piece of fantasy booking I've also pictured in my head. I could picture Killings completely going off in a five-minute promo (because, really, Killings knows how to get to the point fast) and setting up a cool interpromotional match with Booker.
Well...OBVIOUSLY it won't end in anything more than Killings getting squashed, but hey...any publicity is good publicity, I guess. I'll bet TNA would LOVE any sort of publicity.
Hail the man who fought Vince McMahon and won! Hail the man who dared to stand up against shitty booking! Hail the man who stood by his principles! Hail the conquering hero! Stone Cold is coming!
I can't see any of the NWA talent (Hall, Jarrett, Killings, even if he said he'd be there), but stranger things have happened. Roddy Piper is pretty much out of the question as well.
Bret appearing would be great.
Finally, I don't think the show would be complete without THE QUEBECERS, just so I could hear the theme.

Others I'd like to see (in no order): Duke "The Dumpster" Drose, Kamala, Doink & Dink, Marty Jannetty, Jim Neidhart, Ken Shamrock, Ahmed Johnson, Lex Luger (that'd be funny), Bob Backlund, and what the hell, Shane Douglas.
This could make for some very interesting television.
I enjoyed it for what it was ... cram as many spots into one half hour as humanly possibly. Plus it gave me a chance to catch guys I've only read about but not seen, namely Matt Sydal & Jack Evans ... Hey, at least it's something different.
