This coming Monday night (Monday January 22nd)  is the big 25th Anniversary episode for Monday Night Raw and it's expected to be a huge show. Along with their stacked current roster, they have already announced a ton of special guests for the night including Trish Stratus, Lita, Brother Love, Chris Jericho, The Undertaker, Triple H and Shawn Michaels, The New Age Outlaws, MVP, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Eric Bischoff, Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler, Teddy Long, JBL, The Bella Twins, Ric Flair, The Dudley Boyz and a ton more. I'm stoked to see what surprises are in store for us on Monday night. 

It would be damn near impossible for me to try and come up with a top 5 favorite moments of Monday Night Raw considering the fact that I have been watching it pretty much every single week for almost it's entire run. I distinctly remember turning it on for the first time back in 1994 and seeing the The Undertaker destroying a no name "enhancement talent" in a matter of seconds. I was hooked. 

My first live wrestling show ever was Monday Night Raw back in 1996 at Key Arena. I was a huge Shawn Michaels fan at the time and made sure to bring a handmade "Kliq Territory" sign. He got power bombed by Vader that night and it really bummed me out. I had no idea that WWE filmed an entire month of Raw on one night, so much to my mom's dismay the show lasted somewhere around five hours. I was in wrestling heaven. 

Happy Birthday Raw! Sometimes you're great, sometimes you're kind of awful, but you're always there for me.
