Push to Make RAW More Edgy, Possible Date for WM 30 Announcement, More
– We noted before that The Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana is a front runner to host WrestleMania 30 in 2014. There’s some speculation within WWE that they will make the announcement at the 2013 Elimination Chamber pay-per-view on February 17th, from the New Orleans Arena, which is adjacent to the Superdome.
– WWE officials are looking to be more edgier with RAW. The feeling is that Vince McMahon isn’t behind the new push but obviously is on-board with it. Vince realizes that numbers are down and it’s said that he is open to suggestions.
With the low ratings, WWE officials want to put out a product that’s a little different than what we’ve seen over the past year or so. We can also expect to see more wrestling-heavy WWE programming.
