WWE Raw has been a three hour show for over a decade now, officially becoming three hours every week back in July 2012 after Raw 1000.
Over the years, WWE has taken several steps to try and ‘spice up’ the third hour of the show, which included Raw Underground and the ‘dark hour’ of Raw in 2019 when the lights were turned out.
Speaking at the JPMorgan Global TMT Teleconference, WWE CEO Nick Khan spoke about the show.
Khan said that while he doesn’t anticipate there being a change to the length of the show, there have been discussions with what to do with the third hour of the show, and whether to make it ‘more adult’.
Khan had said recently that WWE was open to the idea of SmackDown being moved to a different night.

The card for WWE Night of Champions 2023 on Saturday, May 27 is as follows:
