WWE is reportedly close to adding a 30-minute pre-show to Monday Night Raw likely starting this fall, according to Justin LaBar of Wrestlezone.com:
“After speaking with sources I have learned that there is a plan to add a pre-show to RAW from 8:30-9pm EST. It would be a countdown show to RAW that would take place at the arena where RAW is being held each week. The production would include Superstar interviews, fan interaction and obviously further promoting the major stories going on.”
According to LaBar, the show would have the feel of ESPN’s College Gameday. Sounds like a win-win for USA and the WWE as Monday Night Raw has been a staple for the network for nearly 20 years now.
