Earlier in the week, WWE’s digital content team caught up with a variety of Superstars and asked them one specific question: what is your all-time favorite Raw moment? What followed was an inside look at the memories that have stuck with wrestlers like Kevin Owens, Austin Theory, Liv Morgan, and more – some of the moments selected didn’t surprise us at all, and some really blew us away!
Here are just a few of the great moments that your favorite Superstars mentioned:
In January 2002, Triple H finally made his return to WWE after a nearly year-long recovery from a devastating quad injury. Although he was firmly a villain when the WWE last saw him, the sold-out crowd in Madison Square Garden that night gave him a hero’s welcome when he finally walked down the aisle. Absence really does make the heart grow fonder, as Triple H would ride the crowd’s momentum to new heights.
Not even Kurt Angle could spoil Triple H’s homecoming, who received a Pedigree for his troubles as he tried to ambush the Game.
We have to agree with Ali here, this truly was one of Triple H’s best moments, and we’re thankful that it happened to take place on Raw!
While Brock Lesnar’s shocking 2012 return made USA Insider’s list of most unbelievable moments in Raw’s history, current United States champion Austin Theory’s favorite Raw memory is what transpired the very next week.
John Cena and Brock Lesnar picked up right where they left off, getting into the most intense brawl in Raw history – a brawl that cleared out the locker room and left Cena bleeding profusely from the mouth thanks to a hard right hand from Lesnar himself. It was chaotic, insane, and physical, and re-watching it today still makes us yearn for yet another showdown between Lesnar and Cena.
Weddings are a fairly common occurrence on Raw over its 30-year history, but there had never been a wedding quite like the ceremony between Bobby Lashley and Lana back in 2019. It was all actually going quite swimmingly – until Liv Morgan showed up to protest the union between the two Superstars, proclaiming that she was in love with one of them.
Spoiler alert: Liv wasn’t referring to Bobby Lashley!
It was one of the most shocking moments in WWE history, and we can see why Liv herself considers it to be her absolute favorite.
Some moments transcend just wrestling fans and wind up captivating whoever is watching it. Kevin Owens’ favorite Raw memory was the time when Shawn Michaels was introduced by Kevin Nash as the latest member of the NWO!
Owens relayed a story about how he was surrounded by a lot of people in a bar when this particular moment happened, and looking back, it should’ve been no surprise that the bar was transfixed on this moment just like KO was. KO admitted that he “lost it” when he witnessed HBK’s appearance, since Shawn Michaels was the reason he got into the wrestling business to begin with.
We have to be honest, we love it when WWE Superstars peel back the curtain and geek out about their wrestling fandom. We’re sure this will all translate to these men and women giving the world a can’t-miss performance this Monday at Raw XXX from Philadelphia, live on USA!
