WWE Reveals New RAW Set: HD Screens, Ramp

Ryan Clark

WWE.com has posted a picture and video of the new TV set that will be used for RAW, SmackDown and ECW.

I have also received an eMail from a reader named Joe who works at the Hampton Coliseum, the site of tonight’s RAW.

— The set has a large red protruding oval, that is in front of a larger rectangular silver base. There is a large screen that sits above the walk-out area, and two smaller oval screens to the right and left of the ramp. The ramp itself seems unchanged, although it does look “cleaner” than normal.

— They have been testing pyro on and off all day. In addition to the pyro that shoots upward from the set, there seems to be pyro that shoots forward a small distance from the large oval screen. This pyro was tested for both Triple H and Chris Jericho’s entrances. This seems to indicate that Triple H will be receiving pyro. The Triple H pyro was gold and shot in a circular pattern. Y2J had his normal pyro, in addition to a double shooting forward pyro from the oval screen.
