Rumored SummerSlam Matches, Issues with RAW Going Three-Hours, More

Posted by Matt Boone July 18, 2012 7 Comments

- The feeling within WWE is that Monday’s three-hour RAW will be an easy show because they have so many appearances and angles lined up for the 1,000th episode but from there on, things will get harder as they have to find a way to fill up three hours of RAW each week without months of promotion and special stars to fill up segments.

– One disadvantage of RAW going three-hours is that they no longer have the option of taping SmackDown on Monday night if something were to happen like the recent Colorado wildfires where they had to cancel a Tuesday taping. If something like that happens again in the future, they likely would have to tape SmackDown at a Sunday live event.

– The top matches for WWE’s SummerSlam pay-per-view will reportedly be WWE Champion CM Punk vs. John Cena, World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio vs. Dolph Ziggler in a three-way and Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar. Chris Jericho vs. Daniel Bryan may also take place.

      Hard to fill up another hour on a wrestling show? That’s easy, just have wrestling matches! It’s a no-brainer!

        Good call, but unfortunately we’ll probably see more “game shows” and bullcrap.

      For summerslam… maybe a WWE Champion John Cena VS CM Punk either

      Longer wrestling matches during the first hour would be a good thing, but c’mon this is the WWE, they seem to be incapable to capitalize on great opportunities. Odds are the first hour will dedicated mostly to stupid social media content. I just can’t wait.

      Tell me why they can’t tape Smackdown same night just cause RAW is 3hrs? Does anyone else remember when all thier shows where taped the used to hold 5 hr tapings ever other week. So why couldn’t they do it now? Oh wait they could if needed still do that duh.

      If Jericho and D-Bryan feud continues, this feud will be similar to the Triangle-Love feud that involved Jericho, Christian and Trish.. What you guys think?
