In a recent interview with Wrestling Inc. asking Candice Michelle about her recently advertised appearance for this week’s Legends Night on RAW, the former WWE Diva was as confused as anyone as to why she wasn’t on the show. She found out about the event from Torie Wilson, who was in attendance Monday, and then looked into it herself.
“I thought ‘Oh, she’s in the Hall of Fame. They’re inviting Hall of Famers.’ That’s not where I’m at with the company, yet. So, I just thought that was it. And then I happened to look at the announcement and see who’s going to be back. Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair, some of the greatest wrestlers that I love, and then I saw my name on a list. And I was like, ‘Wait, I’m on the list, but they didn’t call me.’ It’s just a simple thing. I just didn’t make the cut.”
WWE received an influx of angry fans over several legends advertised for RAW this week that were no shows, including what would have been the return of Carlito after over a decade away. WWE has also been known to suddenly drop advertised angles and matches without warning as of late, so while it’s not a surprising development that WWE would do the same thing with its plans for returning legends, it is an unfortunate one.
