— On August 25th, WWE RAW, which will take place in Anaheim, California,
will be going head-to-head with the Emmy Awards on NBC. Despite the long history
of WWE’s weekly show, this will be the first time that RAW has ever faced
competition from The Emmy’s.
— Speaking of RAW competition, the show will begin going head-to-head
against the NFL’s weekly Monday Night Football games starting August 18th, which
is the post-SummerSlam edition of the show. The August 18th NFL game is a
pre-season game and traditionally the preseason games don’t hurt RAW. It’s
historically about a nine or ten percent drop during the regular season.
