looking more and more like some shitty pre-show with no matches
WWE announced during USA Network's upfront presentation that RAWwill go to three hours in a permanent basis starting with its 1000th episode on July 23rd. The show will air from 8 PM – 11 PM every Monday and will have "interactive elements" during the first hour that will lead to matches and stipulations in the last two hours. Because of the change, WWESuperstars will be fully taped on Tuesdays before SmackDown. As of right now, it appears the first hour of RAW will be a pre-show/hype show before the normal two-hour RAW airs. It'll feature recaps and hype for that week's show. A live match or two may be featured from time to time but not on a weekly basis.
of course, that is based on the veracity of EWN's reporting, and it may just be rumor
