Raw To Remain A Three-Hour Show, Maria Gets Engaged, Lawler/JBL/Okerlund Birthdays

– Despite Comcast listing a rerun of NCIS: Los Angeles for this Monday night on the USA Network at 8:00 p.m., Raw will remain three hours in its regular time slot.

WWE officials confirmed to Wednesday night that Raw will remain a three-hour show airing from 8:00 to 11:05 p.m. The cause of this miscommunication is currently unknown.

– Former WWE Diva Maria Kanellis announced on Twitter Wednesday night that she is engaged to be married to Ring of Honor wrestler Mike Bennett. She tweeted a photo of her engagement ring.

After parting ways with WWE in 2010, Kanellis largely kept away from the professional wrestling industry until meeting Bennett through Twitter last year. She regularly accompanies him to independent events as his valet and now holds the position of creative director of Crossfire Wrestling in Nashville, Tennessee.

– Today marks as the 63rd birthday of WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler. Also sharing birthdays with “The King” are fellow WWE broadcaster John “Bradshaw” Layfield, who turns 46-years-old, and WWE Hall of Famer “Mean” Gene Okerlund, who turns 70.

    Raw’s lasted twice that long, with a constant rotation of “cast”, though, Jeremy.

    Not to mention, Seinfeld was very character driven. That’s why it was successful. Raw’s problem is that most of the “characters” have no storylines, no motivations, and basically, no reason to be there, and the people who -are- driving the storylines, aren’t very popular as characters at the moment.

    Right seinfeld has nothing to do with wrestling and is a terrible example. Raw is now boring. People are bored of seeing cena clear the ring for the thousandth time. Ryback has the same match every week. Punk needs to look stronger. Ans Michael Cole needs to call the match, we don’t need u to tell us about fucking twitter. He needs to listen to tapes of Jr and learn something. People shouldn’t keep theirjob just because they have it a long time, they should keep it because they’re good at it. Jr makes a boring match epic. Do ur homework Cole. Yes I know about twitter. I don’t care what’s trending.

    20 years huh? Then what’s the excuse for the poor grammar? have a few lol? And Seinfeld was extremely popular and lasted a decade, far from terrible kiddo

  • nikki

    @ ricardo …for the record seinfeld was a horrible show….ok now what i meant was the punk main events every damn week..I have watched wrestling for over 20 years now.And these days i will just consider myself a casual fan,And even if i miss a week of raw i can tune in the following week and see the same damn main event cena cena cena cena .punk punk punk punk…..good day kiddo

    The problem is using the same guys every week? That’s as stupid as saying the problem with Seinfeld was that it used the same guys every week. Keeping regulars is what makes a show consistent. Fans like you (probably), who care only about spot fests, and are always hungry for burning up the last guy and replace it with another jackass from the indys, are what’s wrong with wrestling. Feed me more!

    raw being 3 hours is not the problem..The problem is they just want to use the same guys every week
