From the observer
Raw expands to three hours
I think that is a horrible idea
For once we agree. Of course, those polls are about as real as everything else WWE does. I doubt some poll is going to make Funkosaurus the next champion. But this constant obsession with social media HAS to stop. It's fucking horrible.
Shortly after the Katie Vick angle, the WWE conducted a poll at a live event. One of the questions was, - and I swear to God that this is true - "Would you like to see more storylines (either 'about' or 'featuring') necrophilia or Tourette's syndrome?" (The Tourette's thing is referring to Goldust.)
It amazes me that just 3 days after they put on the worst reviewed/booked RAW in a long time - they expand it to THREE hours
WWE is faltering worse than ever before
Nitro was 3 hours for awhile too..... LOL
Creative is having massive problems.
I know how to solve it!
Add an extra hour they have to write for!
I wonder if the network was wanting 3 hours?
even when considering the wrestling fans the percentage that will watch 3 hours of wrestling every monday....I'm speechless...
Remember when there was legitemately 5 or so hours of watchable wrestling on tv. There was a time when both Raw and Nitro both were. How can they not figure this out. They have all the talent but Vince just can't keep his hands out of it.
They have plenty of good talent to take up the three hours. I'll never complain about more content, but let's see how this time is used.
Yep, amazing isn't it?
I never watched a second of WCW, I didn't even have that channel when I grew up. The first time I ever saw Goldberg was when he was in Universal Soldier. True story
Vince surrounds himself with people that agree with him
Hunter WAS the lone hope but seems to be kissing Vince ass as well
Ratings, buyrates, merch are all way down but Vince doesn't see a reason to change his booking style
Maybe with these changes they'll stop the "still frames during the PPV recap" bullshit. Do they honestly think people won't buy replays if they show 5 seconds of video?
This is humorous
Todd Martin who reviews & reports on RAW for Wrestling Observer has left that responsibility due to how bad RAW has been & the move to 3 hrs
Even people that are paid to watch are bailing
Last week did only a 2.9 (lowest in awhile) & this week would be luck to do the same, even though it was after a PPV
I don't think they can. I think it's a deal with the cable companies not to show video for x amount of days after a ppv.
Possibly. It's a retarded rule if that's the case. Having audio with still pictures of an action based show just doesn't work. It would be like showing stills of a movie instead of the trailer.
