The Return of Bob Backlund!

It’s the return of Bob Backlund! To promote the 1000th episode of RAW, WWE has been bringing back surprise superstars of the past.  I was amazed to see Vader, Sycho Sid & Rowdy Roddy Piper.  All of this has been set up for Heath Slater to try to make an impact.  This past week we got something special – The Return of Bob Backlund.  To say that my mind has been blown is an understatement.  I haven’t seen Bob Backlund on tv since his appearances with TNA in 2007.  He looked in fine condition at age 63 and he looked like he could win the next Royal Rumble!  I was a little disappointed that he didn’t get any mic time. I would have liked to hear what Mr. Backlund would say to this generation of fans but just seeing him again has made this wrestling fan very happy. He didn’t have much tv time and he spent most of the match soaking up the crowd.  There wasn’t much time for ring techniques and he went right for the cross-face chicken wing.  Short work of Heath Slater but an amazing treat for any true wrestling fan to see this legend back on tv.
