Fool for Old School

Me as the Million Dollar Man at Wrestlemania 26

As you can probably guess, I am a big fan of the old school wrestling.  Pretty much old school everything.  I am really looking forward to tomorrow night's "Old School Raw" event.  I'm not exactly sure how they're going to pull off the night, but I'm sure the visions in my head are much grander than what will actually happen.

While I think it's important for the new talent to be the showcase of the night, I really hope they don't have the old guys getting beat up all night.  That would really suck.

So far, from what I've read many of my favorites will be returning.  Of course, we won't see Ric Flair or Hulk Hogan for obvious reasons.  Personally, I'd like to see every Hall of Famer there who isn't under contract with TNA.  I'd also like to see other legends who haven't yet been inducted.  Guys like the Honky Tonk Man (already read he won't be there), Kamala, One Man Gang, Demolition, etc.

Something else that the writers are going to have to balance tomorrow night is the promotion of the Survivor Series.  At last check, there were only 3 matches announced.  Edge vs. Kane, Wade Barett vs. Randy Orton, and LayCool vs. Natalya.  

So far, no traditional 5 on 5 matches announced.  You gotta figure there will be some kind of Nexus vs. Raw/Smackdown thrown in there.  But I'm also wondering if we'll get some Old School Team vs. Raw roster or even Old School vs. Old School match there too.  It could be interesting or it could be a disaster.

In a nutshell, I like the old school concept, but I have concerns on how they present it.  With 3 hours to kill tomorrow night, I'm hoping we get some kind of Piper's Pit segment thrown into the mix too.  I'm also hoping for a few surprises.  Guys we haven't seen in a while, dig it?
