– Many people within WWE are very worried about RAW expanding to 3-hours on July 23rd. Over the weekend, we spoke to several people who work to WWE and nobody had anything good to say about the expansion. The general feeling is that WWE’s writers and superstars will be spread even thinner and RAW going 3 hours every single week has the potential to do serious damage to not just the RAW television show, but the company as a whole.
– The synopsis for next week’s Raw reads: “John Laurinaitis runs television’s longest-running weekly episodic show.”
– It’s week four of WWE.com’s celebration of the 1,000th episode of Raw. This week, look back at shows from March 1, 1999 to January 22, 2001 in this photo gallery.
