Big WWE News: RAW Becoming a Three-Hour Show Permanently!

WWE.com is reporting that, as originally revealed in a tweet from John Cena, WWE Monday Night RAW will permanently become a three-hour show starting with RAW’s 1,000th episode on July 23 at 8/7c (which will become the new start time for the three-hour show). This comes as a bit of a surprise considering that WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon has mentioned on multiple occasions that he had no interest in making RAW a three-hour show, despite the pressure put on him by the USA Network. However, since RAW now features Superstars from both RAW and SmackDown, the Chairman’s thoughts may have changed.

The article features comments from Vince McMahon as the Chairman & CEO states, “WWE is proud to celebrate this historic milestone with out partners at the USA Network. Our 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.”

WWE.com expanded on the comments made by Vince, revealing that the new three-hour RAW will allow fans to utilize WWE.com and social media (Facebook & Twitter) to decide matches, stipulations, Superstar development, and more.

USA Network co-presidents Chris McCumber & Jeff Wachtel commented as well, saying that “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.”
