This week’s episode of Monday Night Raw had a special Legends Night theme, and it featured many familiar faces from the past.
Former WWE Women’s Champion Candice Michelle was advertised for Legends Night, but fans couldn’t help but notice that she didn’t end up appearing on the show. Candice Michelle recently spoke to the Wrestling Inc. Daily podcast and she confirmed that her appearance was falsely promoted.
“It was falsely promoted. I was never asked to be there. I would have loved to be there. I love WWE anytime they call me, super honored to go there and be called a legend. And as we know, for whatever rhyme or reason, I just wasn’t meant for that show, but having you kind of feature me on your site is kind of better because I’d probably be on the stage doing nothing with 30 other people who are much more famous than I am, and now I get to come on here and actually just have a nice little moment with you guys and talk about how we all get cut in life.”
Candice Michelle went on to say that she first heard about Legends Night from Torrie Wilson, and she was surprised when she found out her name was on the list of talents being advertised for the show.
“Full disclosure, I’ve just been busy at home. I had no idea they announced me,” Michelle admitted. “I was actually in Orlando, which is ironic, and I was hanging out with Torrie. We got to go to Disney World having a magical time, and she told me how she was going to go to RAW. I was like, ‘Oh, what are you gonna do?’ ‘Legends Night,’ and I was like, ‘Oh, that’s awesome,’ and I just didn’t think I was invited.
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.”
