Backstage News On Raw Staying Three Hours, WWE Doing More DVD Screenings?
– WWE officials are reportedly happy with RAW since going to three hours and there has been no official talk of scaling back to two hours. One of the reasons they won’t be going back anytime soon is because they get a bigger payment from the USA Network for the extra hour.
While WWE is pleased with the way things are going, they are aware that they need to get the third hour back up. WWE has been working on ways to get fans who may have tuned out, to tune back in for hour three. The feeling is that RAW at three hours is a work in progress.
– There has been talk of holding more WWE DVD documentary screenings in the future. As noted, the first one is planned for CM Punk’s DVD documentary on October 4th in Chicago at the Portage Theater. Apparently they are also considering doing a second screening for Punk, depending on the success of the first one.
