    Default WWE Considering Special Raw Episode Later This Year

    - WWE officials have been talking about doing a special Monday night TV show later this year where SmackDown would be the first hour, Main Event would be the second hour and RAW would be the third hour. Each hour would have a different look with different announcers. This would be just a one-time special like the old-school RAW.

    This is just silly and stupid. I mean maybe if it had happened during the brand extension and brand specific wrestlers could appear but what's the point now?





    Someone fix the title, I copy/pasted and didn't notice the URL.

    Yeah sounds dumb. I mean I'm not opposed to it but it seems pointless.

    Agree with others. Sounds pointless now the brand extension is basically over.

    This might be one of the most useless things I have ever read in my life. There is absolutely no point of doing any of that.

    I hate Lawler but I'd rather have 3 hours of Raw.

    all the shows have the same commentators, wrestlers, and stage already, the only difference would be the lighting. Pointless.

    I kind of like it when they do stuff like this from time to time just to mix things up. It's something different. Why crap on it?

    Because SD and especially Main Event rarely have good storyline development, why would I want that on the main show?

    Surely this is fake and they aren't actually considering this...because it really serves no point apart from different commentary throughout the night.

    I understand why they would do this. It just won't work.

    You won't get the people that never watch Smackdown or Main Event to tune in.

    I think that's a fair point in regards to ME. I tried to watch it last night and it was kind of difficult to watch. But I think Smackdown does a decent job of storyline development.

    The people who watch Raw will still watch Raw. This format might expose them to Smackdown and Main Event that some people don't ever watch. If this special episode of Raw is done right it might at least peak the interest of people who never give the other shows a chance. I don't expect it to spike their ratings but it may draw in a few new viewers to those shows.

    That was exactly my thinking. If they're going to do something like this, do NXT for the first hour then RAW for the next two.

    Or, here's a thought.

    If they just set-up the format of the show to be this way without the gimmick, it could be quite enjoyable. Everyone on the roster from top to bottom get's a chance to shine every week and you could sprinkle some main eventers in the first hour to keep casual viewers interested. If they quit putting so much filler on the show there would be enough time to give someone a chance every week.

    Is that decision completely up to Vince? I thought USA had control over that too. And if that's true, then maybe they can't do it because USA won't let them.

    I dunno. I don't think they should be thrown in front of the live environment every week. I think if they're still developing it's better to keep it taped and let them learn. A one-off I think would be cool though.

    I know it will never actually happen, but I'd much rather that than continuing to sit through the oft-agonizing three hour Raws.

    Isn't Smackdown 90% composed of RAW rematches anyway.

    So basically the third hour of this special RAW would be the same as the first hour, just with added Cena.
