Concern Over Raw Becoming A Three-Hour Show, WWE In Peoria



- Raw will expand to a three-hour show, starting with the 1,000th episode on July 23 at 8/7 CT on USA Network. Of WWE employees broached on the subject by PWInsider.com, no one had a positive feeling on the addition of one hour to Raw. Rather, those talked to are “genuinely concerned” about the harm making it a three-hour show on a weekly basis could do to the WWE product.

- The synopsis for next week’s Raw reads: “John Laurinaitis runs television’s longest-running weekly episodic show.”

- WWE returns to the Civic Center in Peoria, Illinois on August 25, 2012. Tickets go on sale June 29, 2012 at 10:00 a.m.

- It’s week four of WWE.com’s celebration of the 1,000th episode of Raw. This week, look back at shows from March 1, 1999 to January 22, 2001 in this photo gallery.
