Several current and future WWE Hall of Famers have been announced for the October 19 edition of Monday Night Raw, the go-home show before the weekend's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view.
The WWE announced on their Twitter account that Hall of Famers Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, and Stone Cold Steve Austin will appear on the episode of Raw, alongside the wrestlers involved in the main event at Hell in a Cell, Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker.
The star-studded guestlist is surely going to encourage not only more people to watch the show on TV, but also more people to attend the Raw in Dallas, Texas, the state which WrestleMania 32 will be held next year.

What they will be talking about is yet to be revealed, but the likelihood would be the three Hall of Famers would be on a panel, discussing the main event taking place at the weekend and also their experiences and incredible battles in the ring with The Beast and The Phenom themselves.
As for the main event at Hell in a Cell itself, this caps off a Go To Hell Tour for Lesnar, where he travels to Madison Square Garden for a fight against The Big Show to be shown live on the WWE Network on October 3, and also an appearance on the Stone Cold podcast following the Raw on October 19.
It will also be the deciding fight between the two (unless they go at it again at WrestleMania 32) for the bragging rights. Lesnar, of course, broke The Undertaker's undefeated streak at WrestleMania 30, whilst The Phenom defeated The Beast at last month's SummerSlam, making the series 1-1.
Who will win this one? Undertaker came across as a heel last time out when he delivered several low blows to Lesnar over several weeks. Whether or not he is still doing cheap shots to act out his revenge once he returns to Raw is a different story, and could decide the outcome of this match.
Lesnar has always been built as this man that can't be stopped, and he could be included once again in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship picture once WrestleMania season comes around. If he isn't, he needs to look strong entering the new year, so that whoever fights against him at the biggest wrestling show of the year looks like they've prevailed against all odds.
I believe Lesnar will defeat The Undertaker at Hell in a Cell, but then we won't see either competitor again until around Royal Rumble time next January.
