    Last nights Raw was great. It was shocking, and interesting. I give it a 9.5/10. I took off .5 point because they are filling the extra hour with commercials,

    • Th3_Ev1l_n1nJa

      Don’t you mean it was filled with social media stuff

        I think he does mean commercials…I was up watching Raw the other day and there were a lot of advert breaks…=/

    • Drizzydrake

      I’d take off anothe .5 for mo austin lol

  • pwnez

    I had a feeling it would do a 3.8. I’m actually surprised that the number rose during each hour. WWE deserves this, it was a really good show.

    • Yunggesus

      Deserves? LOL i don’t know about that.

      • BrahmaBullRKO

        Why? It was a very fun show.

      • Realone08

        I think it does, and considering RAW’s numbers, I think it can give Smackdown something worthy enough to watch again in the upcoming weeks. So yeah, WWE deserves this.

      • BestInTheWorld

        It Is Better Then Tna..

    • Drizzydrake

      Every hour except the last hour

  • Mac

    Personally I thought it was a bit weak. I expected more after all of the hype.

  • Forceton Banfodder

    Last nights show was good. But I doubt the next few months of 3 hour shows will bring close to the same numbers without Brock, Rock, Lita, the APA or any of the other legends consistently showing. But I liked the format last night, and I have to say the Slater/Lita match probably put the second biggest smile on my face, seeing APA come out again and possibly the best Clothesline from Hell I’ve ever seen JBL pull off (props to Slater for selling that perfectly). Makes me sad to say I miss some of these stars, JBL, Lita, etc… The biggest smile however was reserved for Punk nailing Rock and putting him to sleep.

    3.8 used to be weekly fair for Raw

    • http://www.facebook.com/KyleC4 Kyle Cotton

      yeah and there weren’t over 9,000 channels.

        ^^ This, plus ad in DVR technology and people watching things on the net.

  • PeepPower

    WWE is genius too… They knew they’d get a ton of viewers and the ending will bring a lot of the viewers back next week to see what happens next… I mean who wouldn’t wanna know what happens next week after that finish?

    • LupineMP3j

      I wasn’t a huge fan of that finish. Show comes out and innterrupts the match? Again? Boooriiing. The heel turn by Punk was interesting, but if I were on the fence, that on its own wouldn’t have been enough to make me tune in next week.

    ummm…… this is RAW 1000. 3.8 IS NOT EVEN GOOD LET ALONE HUGE!!!!!!

    • The Dan Kincaid

      Why? It’s not really a big deal to anyone who isn’t a fan of the product. If American Idol was holding their 1,000th episode I don’t think i’d suddenly be interested. Also, for them to do a big number switching to three hours when they normally end up with a lower than normal rating for a 3 hour show is a good thing. Do I think it will keep up, probably not, but for the one night they put on a pretty good show.

    • http://www.facebook.com/KyleC4 Kyle Cotton

      it’s good when you consider how many freaking channels there are on TV in comparision to 5 or even 10 years ago. the only things on TV now a days that can pull double digit ratings like Raw use to are sporting events. and maybe the ocassional award show.

    • fatneal

      lol typical idiot…in a day when tv is not the primary option for wwe demographic and consider dvr options and the rising popularity of watching streams online…id say 3.8 is more than respectable

    • http://www.facebook.com/fadi.arnouk Fadi Arnouk

      First of all the show was great, I was saying the rating weren’t that much. What I was trying to say was that a normal RAW gets 3.0 to 3.4. And the 1000th episode getting a 3.8 is an improvement (a little bit) but not huge. I read earlier today that they are expecting 4.0 at least. I know people watch on dvr and live streams and replays. What I was saying is that we will soon hear VKM say that he expected more. I know he expected more. After last week’s show gained a 3.4, then 3.8 should be even less than normal for RAW 1000. I really enjoyed most of the show and thought they did very well, sure I don’t think all the 3 hour episodes will be good. But 3.8 isn’t AT ALL a huge rating for such a milestone event. If I was VKM I would be dissapointed. And I’m not a typical idiot @fatneal:disqus. You’re welcome.

      • Bullrogg

        The thing is that it did get a 4.0 if you only count the normal 2 hours. The first hour of the three hour shows always get really bad ratings yet the first hour here got better than a normal Raws good hour ratings. I don’t think it will keep up…but you never know. Wrestling is very cyclical. We could be on the verge of another wrestling boom!

  • Bigbadguns02

    The 1000 raw was not the most important raw. The 1001 raw will be simply to see if people still tune in knowing people like the rock and undertaker won’t be there.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Patrick-Wagner/100000463380428 Patrick Wagner

    It would have been higher if Steve Blackman had made the advertised appearance. LOL… And more silly speak, I wanted Right to Censor to come out at some point and admit to being behind the WWE PG era and John Cena being their mascot.

  • DragonofDarknessXIII

    I was aiming for 4.0.

    Make Lesnar look STRONG. He should have come out and
    annihilated DX on Monday, until agents came to separate a confrontation with
    him and the gang’s leader, HHH. That would’ve left the people really wanting
    more. He ignores serious insults from HHH but runs to the rescue to prevent his
    manager getting beaten up by a woman? That’s what a face would do; rise above sophomoric
    verbal insults, but prevent somebody weaker than themselves from an unjustified
    assault. When John Cena ran to the aid of Zack Ryder during a Kane beating, it
    was an epitomical face move.

    AJ wanted to marry Daniel Bryan – Vince offered her the Raw
    GM job (with no apparent conditions) – AJ suddenly didn’t want to marry Daniel
    Bryan. Where’s the logic? How are the two roles connected? They could’ve made
    some BS up about a condition being that no GM is allowed to be legally tied to
    any contracted competitor or something, at least. Maybe they’ll save this gap
    in logic the same way they did with the John Lauriaitis/Big Show contract
    stipulation debacle, though!

    So, The Undertaker has a lot of freedom because he’s a well-respected
    veteran. That doesn’t mean he should be able to completely diminish his
    character by having a haircut that makes him look weak, old and undergoing a
    mid-life crisis. Give him a year off, pay him whatever you want, as long as he
    grows his hair in time to beat sting, Lesnar and then pass the torch to the
    next John Cena or Dwayne Johnson; somebody who needs that rub to reach that
    level (that is, if anyone will ever hit that level again.)

  • AngelFlow

    Good job by the WWE last night, so they deserve this. Some people are saying the show was weak, maybe they were expecting more wrestling? From the begging I knew that the show would have a lot bunch of promos and 3 or 4 matches. Anyway like I said great show, now give us more wrestling!!! :D

  • GodsLoyalSon

    Man, I can’t believe that we’re just four months away from the 20th anniversary show after this 1000th show just went off, though they are going to have a hard time topping this one unless we have The Rock and Stone Cold on the same show. It seems like we’ll be hitting the 1100th real soon though I hope they stay on long enough to hit their 2000th show

  • Brandon

    I enjoyed raw 1000. Lita, dx, bros of destruction,the rock, etc…but I was basically waiting to see if kharma would return lol…I literally had my hopes up, oh well. I hope the creative team doesn’t get too lazy (like usual). The thing I am worried about is how the divas and tag division will improve with an straight hr…there wasn’t even one diva match on the show. I wanted to c k2 get destroyed by kharma. At least aj, Layla,trish, lita, and Mae got backstage promos. I just hope these 2 divisions can somehow improve with 3 hrs, or will the creative team be stupid and get lazy….

  • currygoi

    Am i the only one a bit disappointed about the show?

    – None of the few matches were GOOD

    – No Stone Cold

    – JR was there (good), but only called one irrelevant match

    – Nice reactions from the crowd to DX, APA and Punk’s walkout but most of the time there was silence in the audience

    – WWE is killing the d-bry hype by making him look like a loser who
    don’t deserves to be in the ring with The Rock or Punk. And i also
    really didn’t understand the whole wedding angle. Is Bryan now a face?
    If not (and thats likely) then what is the reason splitting Bryan and
    AJ? All because they WANT to kill the D-bry hype or what?

    – Most of all: It’s disgusting how they treat Jack Swagger! A former
    World Champion (yes, it was too early in his career) and one of the best
    WRESTLERS in the roster jobbing week after week and this time he even a
    get’s a jobber entrance

    – WWE’s spoiling the Big Show interference at Punk vs Cena by putting
    his name in that twitter poll about who should gonna face Rock at Royal
    Rumble 2013

    • nytxn1

      No, you’re not the only one dissapointed. I thought the show was average at best except for the DX promo, seeing Undertaker return, CM punk take out the rock and the Brock Lesnar segment. Although I think they should’ve had Brock F5 Stephanie and beat the crap out of HHH since he’;s gonna lose to HHH at summerslam.

  • MegaAgent69

    Too bad they can’t do numbers like this without the Legends
