Huge news comes from the Twitter-verse as none other than Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has stated that he will be on the 1,000th episode of Raw.
His tweet stated:
RAW's 1000th episode. The People's Champ returns.. As promised, my goal: THE WWE CHAMPIONSHIP. #RELENTLESS— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) July 10, 2012
This is probably the biggest star to announce their return yet. To me, The Rock's tweet also makes it seem as if he will be inserted into the Money in the Bank Match for the WWE title. And, if that's the case, the WWE is really trying to make sure that fans not only watch Monday's Raw but also turn into potential buyers of July's pay-per-view offering.
Ultimately, with so many stars returning for the 1,000th episode, one has to wonder what the end game is for that show. I personally feel that they can't further many current story lines that night and will probably have to make this a reunion show of sorts.
However, with several injured and suspended stars rumored to return that night, they could set up some new feuds and build up off of that night.
In the end, I guess we will have to watch and see where the WWE is going with this special episode of Raw.
