According to WrestleVotes, last night’s WWE Raw script was still not finalized even as the show went live on the air at 8 PM ET.
That would mean that as the show started and the first hour was underway, Vince McMahon and Co. were likely still wrapping up and completing the last hour.
A report from Fightful notes that WWE officials are looking to “change things up” for the third hour of Raw and this was already initiated last night with the lights being lowered and the Titan Tron and mats being darkened.
Mick Foley also alluded to the third hour getting more “raw” and according to this report, it will lead to a bit of a more unique look for the last hour moving forward as a way to differentiate it from the first 120 minutes of the show.
Raw’s third hour has been pummelled in the viewership ratings for a long time, but the drop has been in even more pronounced over the last year.
