Three-hour Raw to be more interactive.

Discussion in 'RAW' started by Snowman, May 18, 2012.

  1. Not really a surprise given WWE's new-found social media love.
    The "Read this story on" link didn't work though.

    Seems like this will be a mostly-internet thing, lets hope the IWC steps up and remains the "vocal minority" we are known for.
  2. sounds like more facebook & twitter mentions to me. Fuck
  3. Why does WWE push that gimmick? Like they are actually going to make match stipulations by people voting. I want an Ultimate Shark Death Match where the loser is the one knocked into a pool filled with hungry sharks below. MAKE IT SO!

  4. It's probably not going to be that. Probably like, "whats your dream match?" The one with most votes and actually is possible WWE will try to make happen.
  5. Using twitter to get some fan interaction and making them feel like part of the show isn't a bad thing imo.
    Trying to whore your viewers into getting things to trend as a way of kissing your own asses (like they have been doing) is annoying as hell and completely useless.

    I just fear that we're going to get the Viewer's Choice Raw from 2010 every week, which was arguably the worst episode of Raw ever (if you ignore the whole Nexus attack thing). We got questions like "Should Drew Mcintyre face Goldust, Yoshi Tatsu, or a mystery opponent?" Come on, WWE... Then the idiot fans decided that Great Khali and Hornswoggle should get a tag title shot. Fuck.

    Step up, IWC.
  6. wwe already knows what stipulation they are going to use, they just trick the fans into believing that their votes even matter
  7. Sounds like a craptacular idea. I hate these fan interactive sort of things like Taboo Tuesday/Cyber Sunday.
  8. That's the point. Even if WWE gives us 'interaction' it's not going to be

    "Hey, do you want to see Ziggler vs Bryan in an Iron Man Match or do you want us to turn Cena heel?!?!?"

    it will be more like

    "Hey, do you want to see Big Show arm wrestling Mark Henry or a dance contest between Teddy Long and Hornswoggle?!?!?"
  9. You do know the first hour of the 3 hour RAW could just be a pre-show. By interactive they mean interviews with fans, voting on matches and stuff on the pre-show. It's not confirmed that it's an hour longer of wrestling.
  10. What a waste of time that would be. Nobody would watch that shit.
  11. I'm not sure, I think it can be great for the show. Doesn't matter if it's watched less - it can definitely improve the product.
  12. I'm not sure if it's good or bad, if we have Cyber Sunday style polls every Raw I don't think it's going to be very good, however, if they find another way to do it and don't shove it down our throats it would be cool. I don't think the first hour will be a pre-show, I think it'll be another regular hour.
  13. Hows it gonna be interactive??? dont tell me even more twitter/facebook hype as I wouldnt be able to handle that
  14. Fans choosing stipulations by voting on, perhaps interviews with fans, stuff like that.
