This. I always enjoy RAW the night after 'Mania, but I think the OP is going a few weeks after that one (the one in the UK right?) - still should be a decent show (though all of the part-timers that come back for 'Mania will likely be gone by then already - HHH, Undertaker, Lesnar, Rock), but at the same time that will leave some room for them to start pushing newer stars after the 'Mania season (like Ziggler, who will likely cash in by this time, or The Sheild, or Ryback - who likely won't be back in the title scene until after 'Mania (with the exception of possibly being in one of the Elimination Chamber Title Matches))...though looking on the WWE website, it seems that even the SMACKDOWN roster won't be at that RAW taping (as they have a SMACKDOWN house show scheduled at the same time - unless they have a few stars at both shows (as they had The Sheild, Team Hell No & Ryback at a Detroit house show and a Chicago house show on the same night last month (that always seems risky though due to having to fly them straight from one show to the other and hope that they make it their on time)).... Seems like it would be hard for them to do a full three hour RAW with just the RAW roster (without the vast majority if the show seeming like filler - with the exception of having the main event be super long (like an hour, perhaps an Iron Man Match?) - or maybe they intend to back to two hours post-Mania)...
