The Associated Press Covers WWE’s RAW 20th Anniversary


The Stamford Advocate has a new Associated Press story from writer Dan Gelston who wrote about the WWE RAW 20th Anniversary Show.

Gelston wrote: “There’s nothing on TV quite like the promotion’s flagship show, the one that rocketed Austin and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson into stardom, shook the wresting industry out of its staid Saturday morning ways, and filled highlight reels for 20 years with over-the-top personalities, eye-popping feats, total silliness, outrageous story lines, and memorable matches — with so much more yet to come.”

The story also includes some quotes from the likes of John Cena, CM Punk, Jerry Lawler, Mick Foley and others. Paul Heyman also revealed when he realized wrestling moved into a new era. He states: “We were editing the ECW television show. We had ‘Nitro’ on one monitor and ‘Raw,’ on the other. When I saw Steve (confront) Mike Tyson, I realized we have entered into a new era and Steve Austin is leading the way.”

Expect lots of other media outlets to cover the story now that the Associated Press has picked up on it.
