Monday’s “Old School” edition of Raw from Buffalo is shaping up to be one of the most exciting WWE events of the year on its own. Add in the fact that the show is on the road to WrestleMania and this episode could be one of the best in years.
How will the Buffalo crowd impact Monday's Raw?
There are a bevy of former wrestling heroes that are scheduled to triumphantly return to Raw, and along with the hope that The Undertaker is amongst those making an appearance, Monday night will be nostalgia-pop central.
That’s what happens when Raw goes Old School!
Where: First Niagara Center, Buffalo, NY
When: Monday, Mar. 4, at 8 p.m. ET

The Undertaker on Raw?
After returning to a house show in Waco, Texas last week and having a video of that return aired on Monday’s edition of Raw (above), the rumors are running rampant about where and when The Undertaker will return to WWE television.
There are five weeks left until WrestleMania 29, and bringing back Undertaker as soon as possible to make a match with the proper build is imperative to the success of April’s marquee pay-per-view.
The report states that the WWE Universe could possibly see The Deadman on “Old School” Raw this week.
Raw Goes Old School
The WWE has booked wrestling legends “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase, Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes and “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan for Monday’s edition of “Old School” Raw (h/t WWE.com), and there is little doubt that the excitement around the event and the returning stars will make this an unforgettable episode.
Question on Everyone’s Mind: Is This Undertaker’s Time to Return?
While there is legitimate excitement about all of the legends returning to TV, the focus of most fans in the WWE Universe will be on The Undertaker and if Monday is the day he finally makes his triumphant return to the company.
Hype Meter: 5 out of 5 Death Knells
The excitement over seeing the advertised legends will make the three hours of Raw even more interesting than usual, but the focus and anticipation will be concentrated on the end of the show and whether or not The Undertaker returns to set up a WrestleMania match.
CM Punk should be concerned.

Building Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar
Brock Lesnar and Triple H began the second installment of their latest feud last Monday night, and with Lesnar reportedly not scheduled to appear this week (h/t PWTorch), it will be up to Triple H to come out and cut a promo on this week’s Raw that will help set the stage for the rematch from SummerSlam.
Question on Everyone’s Mind: How Could You Hate This Matchup?
Not only do Lesnar and Triple H look like they would legitimately tear each other apart, the duo’s first match at the 2012 SummerSlam was one of the better matches of the year. The idea that fans in the WWE Universe wouldn’t want to see this bout again is unfathomable; this is a in-ring war wrestling fans from all generations should be pulling for.
Hype Meter: 4 out of 5 WrestleMania-Worthy Rematches
Triple H is one of the most decorated stars in wrestling history and one of the most popular names in wrestling today. Add in the drawing power of a mainstream superstar like Brock Lesnar and this dream rematch finally finds its home on a show worthy of its grandeur.
This won’t be a wrestling match—this will be a war.
