Pro Wrestling Since 1997


Vince McMahon thanks fans for 1,000 Raws

WWE.COM has released a video by WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon as he
thanks the fans for 1,000 episodes of Monday Night RAW. “I would like to
personally thank you and the entire WWE universe for your never ending
support as WWE achieves television history with its record breaking
1,000th edition of Monday Night RAW. In celebration of this historic
night, we invite you to join us this Monday at 8 o’clock, 7 central, for a
monumental three hour event,” McMahon said. “Once again we thank you for
making RAW the success it has become and we look forward to creating yet
another one thousand episodes.” RAW, which made its debut on January 11,
1993, is the longest running weekly episodic TV show without hiatus. It
has aired on USA Network, TNN, which was later renamed to Spike TV, and
then back on USA Network, in its 17 year history.

    Unless its a typo, it seems like Ol’ Vinny is going a tad senile in his old age, Raw has been on the air for 19 years not 17 as he says here.

  6. Kerry says:

    Professional wrestling died in the late 1980’s early 1990’s.

  7. Hipnosis says:

    RAW was on spike TV for a few years so it could be 17.

  8. O says:

    I’m just glad that the 1000th episode isn’t a clip show.

  9. Ziggler mark says:

    Note that the ending was not in quotations so Vince McMahon in all likelihood wasn’t the one who said that.
