Raw's Future and Going Forward...

After some of the roster complained to Vince about the show's writing and Vince blowing up on the creative team, what do you think is next for Raw? Will Raw be consistently good on a regular basis like last week's Raw? How do you think Raw might get better going into the future?

Re: Raw's Future and Going Forward...

It absolutely, positively has to go back to being a 2 hour show. Being 3 hours is just a) too long to sit through on a weekly basis, and b) confusing to people who watch casually. People don't know when to tune in anymore to see something good. it used to be clear, you wanted to be watching for the opening, the 10pm hour, then the main event at the very least because those 3 time periods are when interesting stuff happened.

Now with 3 hours you really can't be sure when anything good will happen besides the opening and main event. do they really think people are going to sit there glued to the TV for those 2.5 hours in between? casual viewers will end up deciding they would rather simply not watch Raw rather than sit through a full 3 hours in order to see the good stuff. I don't know anyone besides die-hard IWC fans who sit through the full 3 hours every week, god knows I don't.

I know what ya mean. I have to sit through the whole show because IDK when something important may happen. You use to be able to just watch the beginning and end to get all the good stuff, but it's not that way anymore. Anymore input on Raw's future?

Re: Raw's Future and Going Forward...

It used to be a chore to watch RAW with 2 hours. Now it's a full time job it feels like.
I always have to watch it from DVR cause it's just hard for me to sit that long and do nothing.

But on the note of RAW's future, I would think things will be looking brighter and everything.
But like AngryPhil said, nothing will change until Vince is gone.
Vince is the problem who's trying to look for the solution.

DEAN AMBROSE is taking over the world! As of right now forget what you think you know about this industry,
because Dean Ambrose is about to blow the DOORS. OFF. EVERYTHING! SO WELCOME TO THE FUTURE!!!!"


THANK YOU PUNK.

Re: Raw's Future and Going Forward...

Nothing will really change unless Vince changes. After all, everything was going through him before it happened on RAW so he must have liked the crappy segments since he gave them the green light to begin with.

Re: Raw's Future and Going Forward...

None of the current fellas are creative enough to change anything. They were just scapegoating creative as a cover for their very shallow "creativity".

Re: Raw's Future and Going Forward...

100% agreed that 3 hours is too long. You practically have to quit your job and forsake your family and friends to be a wrestling fan nowadays.

I am constantly catching up with wrestling. I feel like I spent the whole weekend watching, and I still am not all the way through SmackDown, so I'll be missing Raw tomorrow.

As long as they're promoting WWE '13, I think we'll see more edginess, and at the very least, it will remind most of us of the good old days. J.R. made this plan very obvious when he said "this is a main event full of attitude!" (I don't know if anyone noticed or pointed that out because I've been too behind to read the threads on here.) But they seem to be emphasizing the attitude stuff to promote their game, so maybe that will improve the product for the time being.

Go back to 2 hours, dammit.

Re: Raw's Future and Going Forward...

Smackdown needs to go, their is just far to many weekly shows to be able to catch up with anything. With RAW being 3 hours their is no need to have 5 more hours of WWE TV in the same week if you include Smackdown, Main Event and Superstars.

RAW will be fine 3 hours if they get rid of Smackdown.

Out of curiosity, how many of us watch everything WWE puts out, including Main Event, Slam, NXT, and Superstars? Out of those, I only watch Main Event, and I even hope to quit that after next week. If I watched any more, I'd go insane.
