It's been several months with 3hr raws so far, and with that said,what do people think of the overall quality of Raw, if you were to take a 3hr episode of raw, and edit it out so it was only 2hours(meaning only the best parts of 3hr show made it to 2hr edit).
Would that make Raw seem better,worse,or have no impact? I think it'd be much better. We've had about same percentage of the show with ok-good stuff happening on Raw, but it's just that with 3hrs, that percentage means more minutes of good stuff.
For example, last nights Raw. Had it been only 2 hours...

What goes: (all these things removed,would likely cut out 30-40 mins of Raw)
Swagger-Ryder maybe happens on SD(or it just ends up as a 1 min squash match)
Henry-Khali happens on SD(or just 1-2 min squash on Raw)
Brodus/Tensai-Primo/Epico is edited out
Barrett-Kofi edited out(but the match still advertised,and Barrett just doesn't compete after the attack from Bo Dallas)

If that happened, I actually think the 2hr shows might actually be much better compared to how they were before Raw went 3hrs. 3hr exposes what truly is good and what is bad,so if 2hr shows happen again, hopefully WWE sees what was good and bad in 3hrs and just uses the good in 2hr shows.
If someone were to upload this episode of Raw on youtube(someone who actually likes WWE, not someone who watches just for 1 superstar who is on for 5-10 minutes) and had to cut it from 140mins(the current length of Raw without commercials) to 90 minutes(the previous length of Raw), if they removed the stupid matches and recaps, it'd easily fit the 90 min timeslot and be a much better show.
Basically,lets say you were to rate each thing on Raw out of 10. In 3hr, the average is 7 or something, and once you remove a majority of the things rated lower than 7 when converting the 3hr show to 2hrs, the average is an 8. That's basically what I'm getting at in this thread.
