Default Monday Night Raw in the UK

One for the people of the UK.

Got thinking last night, when did Monday Night Raw start getting shown as a program on Sky Sports?

I think Raw was always on Sky Sports but it only started being shown live around 2002/2003, before that it was shown on Friday night's alongside WCW Nitro which would air on TNT.

It wasn't shown at all when it started. From what I remember they would show highlights on Mania (with Todd Pettengill) or The Action Zone but never the show itself, until around 1995...I think?

Such great memories of staying up til 2am on Friday nights as a 14 year old watching a taped show that happened four days earlier.

As for live, yeah maybe around 2003 or so, but I wouldn't really know as I was just beginning my wrasslin' sabbatical.

Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't Raw originally shown on Sky One (Like when Superstars, Wrestling Challenge and all those were) before it moved to Sky Sports?

It may have been brief around 93 time but I'm sure it was on Sky One originally, though I could be wrong?

I was a Nitro man in those days and all my mates were Raw watchers. I'd catch Nitro on the Friday night, see my friends on Saturday. We'd talk about what we'd seen the night before then all go home and watch Smackdown that night. Again, we'd talk about that together on the Sunday and wait for the PPV's. So much nostalgia just typing that out!
