More on Raw’s big change this Summer



At the USA Network up fronts today in New York it was revealed that Monday Night RAW will turn into a three hour show permanently starting from July 23. The RAW on that particular date will be the 1,000th episode and WWE has big plans to celebrate the major milestone. “WWE is proud to celebrate this historic milestone with our partners at USA Network,” WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon said. ³Our new three-hour Raw represents the next generation in interactive television where our fans won’t just watch the show, they will help create it.” Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel, co-presidents of USA Network were equally ecstatic about the extra WWE hour. “The WWE Universe is one of the most socially active and passionate fan bases in all of television. The powerful three-hour block of live TV truly makes USA the year-round destination for young male viewers on Monday nights.”

    Am I the only one who instantly thought back to that Raw Power to the People episode where Mason Ryan was “voted” to face Evan Bourne?

  3. M.J. Wright says:

    So does that mean we get a 4 hour show next year for Raw’s 20th anniversary?

  4. rebel says:

    @M.J. Wright. According to WWE’s math, Raw should celebrate its 20th anniversary this year…

  5. Bill says:

    Is the extra hour being added at 8 est or 11 est?

  6. Chris James says:

    Funny thing is, everyone that pisses and moans will still watch the entire broadcast. Haha.

    I Will watch
    It will be great to see the 3 hours instead of 2 .

    But when they said the fans will make the show then i instantly thought of Taboo Tuesday and Cyber Sunday

  8. Joan B. in S. C. says:

    @Silenzi, at first I thought of those two ppvs, but then I remembered that Vince tells us what to like, so I’m a little confused.
