Monday Night first aired on January 11, 1993, and since became the longest-running weekly episodic program in television history with no reruns.
On May 17, 2012, WWE announced that Raw would expand from its two-hour format to three hours beginning with the 1000th episode on July 23, 2012.
Monday Night RAW is a staple in wrestling fans lives and has had countless moments and memories that will forever be remembered in wrestling history and now Triple H is hard at work in getting RAW back to being must see TV.
Recently the before Vince McMahon had stepped down, fans were subjected to endless of weeks and months of RAW episodes that just felt flat, dragged on and just did not bring excitement to the fans the way it used to.
WWE creative team members had pitched new and exciting ideas to Vince McMahon on numerous occasions but he usually rejected the ideas and did not allow RAW to progress.
As Triple H took over creative one of the main focuses is getting Monday Night RAW back on track and back to being a exciting episodic television show week in and week out.
Many of the recent WWE surprise returns have joined the RAW brand including
• Braun Strowman
• IYO Sky
• Dakota Kai
• Johnny Gargano
• Candace LeRae
This is all by design by Triple H himself and more superstars are set to join the RAW brand in the coming months.
Triple H wants to make sure all shows are exciting but getting RAW back as the premier weekly WWE show is his highest priority.
“Triple H wants RAW to be the flagship show again. He wants to make sure RAW is the driving force in the WWE Universe.” a WWE source tells SW.
The recent years have seen SmackDown become the A show due to the program being aired on FOX. This has caused RAW to not become the priority and now WWE is looking to change that.
A strong weekly Monday Night RAW episode will always be welcomed by wrestling fans and it is great to see RAW going to its roots.
Stay tuned to SW for the latest updates.
