Report: Backstage WWE Reaction To The Three Hour Raw Move

Nick Paglino

WWE is reporting that despite the public enthusiasm shown for WWE moving Raw to three hours beginning this summer, the backstage reaction to the move has been mostly negative. Several issues have risen out of news of the change, including logistical issues in terms of taping the show. If Raw is being taped on the west coast, it will have to begin at 4:30pm, which is still during the work day.

Additionally, there is fear that the WWE staff, talent and fans will eventually be burnt out by the three hour show, which has left some feeling that the move might only last until the end of the year, with Raw either moving back to 2 hours, or the first hour being a WWE Network pre-show.
