According to a report by The Wrestling Observer, the reaction within WWE to the announcement that Monday Night Raw would be changing to a three hour show starting 7/23 was less than thrilling. The belief is that this could be a temporary move for the company or that the one hour prior to Raw could be used as a pre-show. In the official press release on Thursday, WWE pushed heavy interaction with the change starting in July with new ways for viewers to get involved during the live broadcast.
