PAIGE and AJ LEE Ass Pics *Must-See*

- We noted before that beginning July 2nd, many of WWE’s RAW Supershow tapings will begin 90 minutes before the live RAW broadcast airs on TV. Currently, tapings begin 30 or 45 minutes before RAW hits the air. Speculation now is that WWE may be filming a countdown show for RAW with that extra time. Officials have been wanting something like a RAW pre-show for a while now.

WWE is also looking at doing a Lucha Libre show with high-flying Spanish wrestlers and Spanish announcers. With the Cruiserweights show also set for this November, the bottom line is that WWE is looking to do a lot more TV shows this year as they prepare for the Network launch.

With NXT and FCW being taped at Full Sail University soon, word is that WWE will still be taping another show on Tuesday nights before the Superstars and SmackDown tapings.

Regarding the new tapings at Full Sail University, speculation is that Jim Ross and William Regal may end up announcing that show. The new tapings are being described as Triple H’s own project and something that Vince McMahon doesn’t have his “fingerprints” on, yet.

    Same here Whooper. I wish it was more of a preshow than it was a review of the previous week.

    In Canada they have a 15 minute countdown to Raw show every week. Becuase the CRTC requires a certain percentage of a broadcast to be Canadian content, so to me Raw starts at 9:15.

    Countdown show to Raw EVERY week? That’s nuttier than a pet coon. Maybe for a Raw after a huge PPV. I’d love to see more JR and Regal.

    @ NICK, HAHA, I KNEW THAT AFTER ONLY READING A FEW NEWS FEED & THEIR COMMENTS, THAT YOU COULD NOT RESIST TO MENTION TYSON KIDD. NICK + TYSON KIDD = SAUSAGE FEST!!!!

  • Bill

    JR & Regal? Sounds like an awesome commentary team! Now just bring JR to Raw & business will pick up(pun intended)!

  • Jimbo

    Actually this might work if they do all the stupid crap for the pre-show and leave Raw for, you know, actual wrestling.

  • SYM

    WWE is doing terrible with RAW. I get bored watching it & the Set up is Flat.

  • nick

    Just keep the show the way it is. Just Have Tyson Kidd take up an hour (which is half the show) and let him do his promos, and match. Give Kidd the full Hour, and if theres time left, let Cena go out there to do a match or promo, and have Kharma Return and attack him.

    nick-no they won’t be tapping matches then showing the tapes. they will just put more rookie matches on like alex riley curt hawkins and jtg.

    Sounds stupid..ratings will go down, if its not live, and if its too long of a show.
