John Cena tweeted the following message regarding a major change to WWE's flagship Monday night show.

"STARTING Monday Night July 23 @USA_NETWORK WILL BE ADDING A 3RD HOUR TO @WWE MONDAY NIGHT RAW - PERMANENTLY. #3hourRaw"

The July 23rd show will be RAW's 1,000th episode.

The announcement of RAW moving to 3-hours every week is now on WWE.com as well.

It was recently reported that WWE's weekly RAW tapings would be starting close to an hour earlier - and this news explains why. No word yet on whether the extra hour will be the rumored RAW pre-show.

"WWE is proud to celebrate this historic milestone with our partners at USA Network," WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon said. “Our new three-hour Raw represents the next generation in interactive television where our fans won’t just watch the show, they will help create it.”

Starting with the historic 1,000th episode of Raw on July 23, The WWE Universe will have new ways to get involved in the show through WWE.com and social media by deciding matches, stipulations, Superstar development and more.

"The WWE Universe is one of the most socially active and passionate fan bases in all of television," Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel, co-presidents USA Network, said. "The powerful three-hour block of live TV truly makes USA the year-round destination for young male viewers on Monday nights."

What is the "rumoured RAW-pre show"?

It sounds like some type of Xtra-Factor, Britain's Got More Talent type show, but for WWE. Isn't this type of stuff what the WWE Network is being brought in for?

i can't even sit through two hours never mind three. I suppose its nice that they're breaking away from the formula that's been there for 15 years or whatever

I can't see why they need 3 hours each week - 3 hours of DQ finishes, count-outs and rushed 5 minutes matches does not appeal, especially with 15-20 minute promo segments.

So, with this interactive aspect it's going to basically be Cyber Sunday but on a Monday. And every week.

Personally I never thought that Cyber Sunday ever really worked that well because, whatever you chose, it didn't really have much impact on the matches or the storylines. So it seems a bit pointless - like having an interactive episode of EastEnders.
