According to Dave Meltzer in this week’s issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Ric Flair, “Cowboy” Bob Orton Jr., Larry Hennig, Baron Von Raschke and Greg Gagne are all confirmed as appearing tomorrow night at Money in the Bank from the Scottrade Center in St. Louis.
The idea behind these particular legends appearing is that they were stars in St. Louis. What their appearance entails isn’t clear.
Several other names have been mentioned as possibilities including Gerald Brisco, Rocky Johnson, and “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase, but Meltzer doesn’t have confirmation of those names.
Larry Matysik, 70, who was the television announcer from 1971 to 1983 for Wrestling at the Chase — a TV show that aired in St. Louis from 1959 to 1983 — was contacted and was originally going to appear at his first WWE live event in more than 20 years. However, this past week he got a call from Sue Aitchison, WWE Director of Talent Relations, who said that Vince McMahon saw the name and immediately removed it, saying that Matysik’s disability would not allow it because the fire code wouldn’t allow him into the building because he has a power wheelchair.
