    The Asylum isn't a 24 hour cable TV network. That's not even close to a good comparison.

    But it is a straight to video company, like WWE Studios, and that was in response to what Michelanvalo said.

    They said they are putting 3/4s of the PPVs on the WWE network. Is that when they originally air, or are they going to be free like a week/month later?

    When they originally air. They'll still put the PPVs up as stand-alone PPVs, but most of them come with the cost of the network. The only exceptions are the big 4, which you still have to buy stand-alone.

    Shitty music aside.

    I want more videos that show the wrestlers backstage interacting with one another in a way that isn't in character.

    Well except for Cena, he apparently lives his character.

    In a non-complaint, that video was great. Mainly for CM Punk and D-Bry hamming it all the way up. Even though that might be strong proof that Daniel Bryan should never dance ever again.

    Speaking of Ever Agaihn, all it was missing was Jericho for the "Make A Silly Concept Entertaining" trio.

    TMZ.com is reporting the following:

    John Cena's divorce nightmare has come to an end ... in fact, the two sides have agreed to bury the hatchet ... TMZ has learned.

    As we previously reported, Elizabeth Huberdeau felt like she was blindsided when Cena unexpectedly filed to end their 3-year marriage back in May.

    Things got nasty ... quickly ... with Liz making moves to challenge the couple's prenup. Liz also said she believed Cena was messing around with other women behind her back.

    But now, Liz's attorney, Raymond Rafool, tells TMZ the two have managed to work things out privately ... saying, "All matters [in the divorce] have been settled and resolved amicably."

    Deadspin has another mailbag of wrestler encounters, with this great story:
    My buddy's brother managed a strip club called in Syracuse, so we spent quite a bit of time there. WWE rolled into town and Big Show (with Orlando Jordan) made his way into the place. My buddy challenged him to a game of pool, which he declined. Then I asked him about his WWE debut, where he broke through the mat from underneath the ring during a cage match. I always joked about this huge guy being forced to hide uncomfortably under the ring for 3 hours, but I always assumed they had some special trap door or trojan horse-type strategy where they wheeled him out. Show went from pool-game dismissive to fiery: "Yeah I was under there the whole night, and Vince can suck my nuts about it!"

    I asked him what he did under there. He said he had a walkie talkie, a flashlight, and a magazine. I pressed Show on the type of magazine, but he just laughed it off as if to say "pornography." Conclusion? Big Show masturbated underneath the ring during his debut at the St. Valentine's Day Massacre PPV. This would be extremely difficult given his size and I believe he should be praised for it, even though it may never have happened.

    According to WrestlingObserver.com, Spike TV has canceled TNA Rewind after just one week. The show debuted last week, and was supposed to be part of a three-hour weekly TNA block of programming, but the debut only scored a 0.2 rating, which is one third of what Spike normally does in that time frame.

    Impact will remain in the 8-10PM ET time slot every week.

    Did this show happen right before the live Impact broadcast?

    That's a good story, but I liked the Cornette story better.
    Back in the mid 1990s I had a friend who worked for Jim Cornette at Smoky Mountain Wrestling. My buddy, knowing I was a big JC & the Midnight Express fan, had Jim call me on my birthday one year and we talked about Smoky Mountain and working for the WWF. I ended up doing some work for them too, nothing major, just got them on local public access and whatnot. After that, from time to time, I would talk to Cornette on the phone and he was as he always has been, opinionated and funny as hell. I honestly would ask him like a couple things and then just sit back and let him roll. Very good times.

    So this one time the WWF is doing a house show in my state. I talked to Jim briefly to let him know that I was planning on going and he said that it was cool and he was going to leave me tickets for me and two buddies. He asked me if there was a Wendy's near the coliseum and I told him that I would hook him up for leaving me the tickets. Jim likes free food.

    We get there and this beefy security dude is there and he barks at us asking what we want. Me and my buddy are big enough guys so we aren't intimidated. I held up the bag of Wendy's and said I was there to bring this food to Jim Cornette. Beefy smiles and gives us a knowing laugh. Cornette is famous for loving his Wendy's. He opens this gate and leads us to the back door of the arena and tells us to wait as he goes inside.

    Me and my buddy are standing by the door. It seems like it is taking a long-ass time as we are baking in the August sun. Suddenly, The Man They Call Vader pops out and gives me a menacing look that makes my balls crawl up further into my body than they'd ever been. He snatches the bag of food from my hands and slaps the large Sprite out of my other hand. Then he goes back in. I swear, if I had been able to breathe, I'd have swallowed my own nuts.

    The next day I get a call from my buddy. He asks me how the show was and whether or not I met up with Cornette. I start telling him the story and I can hear him giggling on the phone. After a while, he can't take any more. Cornette has set me up. He told my buddy he was going to pull a rib on me and the two of them had hatched out the plan over the weekend.

    I would have shit my god damn pants.

    A good rundown of all the wedding in WWE history,

    http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/8177480/wedding-fiasco-return-degeneration-x-mystery-gm-candidate

    The first WWF marriage was between Butcher Vachon and Ophelia in 1984. Captain Lou Albano objected on the grounds that Vachon had been married "five or six times before," and because Ophelia was a virgin (although Vachon clarified that she was not, in fact, so pure, and Albano withdrew his objection). Then Dr. D David Schultz body-slammed Vachon; later, at the reception, he gave the bride a pie in the face as Vachon stood there impassively. The best part is Vince McMahon's uncontrollable laughter and the drunken reception where the Samoan contingent force midget wrestler Sky Low Low to sing with them. The 1985 marriage of Uncle Elmer — a Hillbilly Jim hanger-on — and Jackie was even more ridiculous, except that it was an actual wedding, which goes contrary to the very fabric of pro wrestling.

    The most famous wedding in WWF history was that of "Macho Man" Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth. The pair was already married in real life, but because Savage played the heel and — much like Bryan — emotionally abused his ladyfriend, their onscreen union could only be consummated once Savage mended his ways. The WWF decided to play the in-ring ceremony totally straight, without interruption or other rasslin' contrivance — with the exception, of course, of Savage's white-and-gold wedding ring gear and Bobby Heenan's snarky commentary. The reception, however, was famously crashed by Jake "The Snake" Roberts and The Undertaker, who hid a cobra in a gift box. My personal favorite moment was the toast by "Mean" Gene Okerlund to "the new bride and groom, mister and missus Macho."

    The other weddings run in quick sequence — a matrimonial fever dream. In 1999, Stephanie McMahon was tied to a cross and forced to marry the Undertaker in a sort of pagan ritual, until "Stone Cold" Steve Austin intervened. Later that year, Steph got the wedding of her dreams when she wed Test. Triple H derailed the proceedings when he informed the wedding party that he had married a comatose, post-bachelorette-party Stephanie at a Vegas drive-through chapel. This ceremony, such as it was, was really the high-water mark of the Attitude Era. It had implied kidnapping and rape, large-scale impropriety, and a healthy dose of Triple H's throaty sexual innuendo voice. It turned out that Hunter and Steph were in cahoots all along. They renewed their vows months later in an in-ring ceremony that needed no interference, since Triple H hijacked it himself after learning that Stephanie had faked a pregnancy to keep his affection. "Stephanie," he said, "as I look into your eyes tonight, I see you for what you truly are — a no-good lying bitch." And then he beat up Vince.

    There have been many other weddings, all vulgar and nonsensical and wonderfully awful in their own ways: Lita married Kane and then almost Edge, and Edge almost married Vickie Guerrero; Dawn Marie married Torrie Wilson's dad and nobody cared; there was a gay marriage between Billy Gunn and Chuck Palumbo in 2002 that turned out to be a publicity stunt; the aforementioned Teddy Long got married to Kristal in 2007 but had a Viagra-induced heart attack before the final "I do"; and Goldust married his protégée Aksana not too long ago, which was strange because it was portrayed as a green-card wedding and Goldust has always been implicitly gay, but WWE glossed over those points because, at that point, was anyone paying attention?

    I wish I was watching in 2002, because I would have loved to have seen Billy Gunn and Chuck Palumbo get gay married.

    W★ANGseday Night WAR - August 8th 2012
    In the ring is Bryan Alvarez, who has a microphone.

    “How’s it goin’ everyone? Welcome to W★ANGseday Night WAR, tonight we have four great matches lined up for you, including a special hardcore match between Player Uno and Willie Mack as well as an announcement about what’s inside that glass case”

    He motions over to a ringside podium with a sheet covering whatever’s on top.

    “and the tournament to be held Sunday August 26th at Card Subject to Change but firs-“

    He’s cut off by somebody with a microphone off-screen.

    “Yeah yeah yeah, get to announcing this company’s hottest new star. Hit my music.”

    “Sexy Back” hits the speakers and Sexxxy Eddy struts out to the ring in a vest and speedo. Making lewd gestures at a surprisingly awake crowd.

    “Dude, that is way too much banana hammock, and is that a gym sock poking out of the front?”

    Eddy stops on the apron, offended.

    “What did you say?”

    Eddy leaps over the ropes and hits Alvarez with a springboard lariat. Bryan Alvarez gets knocked to the ground and stomped on by Eddy, who is already climbing the turnbuckle. Off the top - Total Sextacy hit hard. Eddy plays to the crowd, leaving Bryan Alvarez down in the ring. Eddy goes back to stomping on Alvarez as the timekeeper rings the bell. Eventually help comes out to pull Eddy off. In the scuffle Eddy throws a wild right hand and it hits BUSHI.

    Every wrestler in the ring looks shocked and lets out an “ooooh!” They let Eddy go and BUSHI rushes him with chops and kicks before spraying mist in his face. Eddy rolls to the floor wiping his eyes as referees and road agents hit the ring and break things up.

He says something that offends her enough to slap him.Eddy does not take it well, he shoves her chest first into the turnbuckles and hits her with a wheelbarrow suplex! The referee is out! More wrestlers and road agents hit the ring. BUSHI vaults over all of them and knocks Eddy out of the ring with a forearm.

    Dasher Hatfield vs Cyborg Cop:
    The Robocop theme plays as Cyborg Cop lumbers to the ring, a cheap laser pointer taped to his head cutting through the fog. He stops halfway to give a fan a citation for public intoxication before climbing into the ring. “Tessie” by Dropkick Murphies blares over the loudspeakers as the image goes black and white. Dasher Hatfield walks out playing up to the crowd. He rolls into the ring and removes his cap before rubbing some pomade into his hair.

    Collar and elbow tie-up to start. Dasher pushes Cyborg Cop into the corner and lights him up with a few chops! Cyborg Cop gives almost no reaction and tosses Dasher into the corner for a chop of his own.

    “CURSES!”

    Chop.

    “Egad!”

    A last chop drops Dasher in the corner. Cyborg Cop attempts to throw Dasher into the ropes but Hatfield reverses sending Cyborg Cop out of the ring. Baseball slide from Dasher knocks his opponent into the guard rail. Dasher slams Cyborg Cop’s head off the covered glass case at ringside. Dasher rolls Cyborg Cop back into the ring and catches a throat thrust chop coming back in. Cyborg Cop suplexes Dasher back into the ring from the apron. Suplex lift into a powerslam on Dasher. Cyborg cop lifts Dasher onto the top rope. Dasher blocks a superplex and elbows out of the hold. Grand slam from the top rope! Dasher slowly crawls over for the cover. 1…2…kickout! Dasher Hatfield throws Cyborg Cop into the ropes and winds up for a baseball sledge...but Cyborg Cop rolls through with the move! He is using the pants for leverage! 1....2...3! The referee didn't see it! A fan in attendance yells “You’re a corrupt Cyborg Cop!” I don't think the fight has finished. Dasher Hatfield and Cyborg Cop have begun brawling again! Dasher picks up his baseball bat and Cyborg Cop runs to the back. Worth a ** rating, but no more than that.

    KUDO vs Cassidy Riley : KUDO walks out to a slightly better reaction than last week, but still, fuck this crowd. The debuting Cassidy Riley walks out with a microphone.

    “Cut this shitty Japanese nobody’s music. How dare the W*ANG board of directors think they can bring me in as a replacement for TJ Perkins. I’m no second string replacement. I’m the one true king of the indies. I’ve worked for OVW, TNA, WCW and WWE.”

    A fan in the audience shouts “Who are you?!”

    “Cassidy Riley, you idiot! And I shouldn’t even be here! I can book my own promotion, I’ve trained motor-skill-less nobodies to be better than most of this roster. It’s only a matter of time before I take over this company since clearly that’s the only way I’m going to get any pull around here.”

    Lockup into a go-behind by KUDO, reversed by Cassidy Riley and then again by KUDO who goes into an arm wringer. Riley rolls through into an arm wringer of his own and KUDO cartwheels into another arm wringer which he puts pressure on before going into a hammerlock and then a side headlock. Cassidy Riley shoves KUDO off the ropes and both men go for a dropkick, quickly poping up onto their knees for a standoff. Cassidy Riley spits in KUDO’s face. Big mistake. KUDO starts lighting Riley up with stiff kicks. Riley crawls into the corner and eats a hard knee and a kick to the chest. Double knees to the face of Cassidy Riley! Riley moves out of the way of a back elbow and follows up with a dropkick in the corner. Flying cross body off the top rope! I'll give a 0.8 on the Steamboat scale for that effort. Cover for a two count. Riley rolls KUDO over and locks on a rocking horse submission hold. KUDO is in trouble. Fisherman DDT! 1....2....3. Cassidy Riley gives a murderous look toward KUDO...and attacks with the fury of 1,000 bitter indie workers! KUDO gets dropped to the canvas, then battered with a barrage of rights and lefts. C. Riley leaves the ring having left KUDO down and out. Almost a *** rating, but there were some bits that dragged, so **3\4 instead.

    Sugar Dunkerton is backstage talking with Dasher Hatfield about his loss.

    “Don’t let him hoodwink you out of a victory chap. These rudos are sneaky.”

    “Don’t worry about it, you and me, the throwbacks, we’re too sweet to be soured. And with you and that bat out there watching there’s no way Peter Avalon is going to run away like he did last week. If he tries to just crack him in the ass with that Louisville and send him back to the ring where your boy Slam McNasty, the round mound of smackdown, will hit him up with that Sugar Rush and send him to the showers while we go to the pay window.”

    Sugar Dunkerton gained overness from this segment.

    Sugar Dunkerton vs Peter Avalon :
    Peter Avalon is already in the ring working the crowd to little to no reaction. Avalon is now wearing bicep bands and MMA gloves. He lays across the top rope posing to the delight of nobody when the lights go out.

    “Everybody get up, it's time to slam now
    We got a real jam goin' down
    Welcome to the Space Jam
    Here's your chance, do your dance at the Space Jam, alright”

    Sugar Dunkerton enters to a really 90s looking laser show, spinning a basketball on his finger.

    Dunkerton brings the ball into the ring for a pre-match tip-off. Peter Avalon tries to swing at Dunkerton, who leans back and lets Avalon fall on his face. Clothesline on Avalon. Dunkerton starts lighting up Peter Avalon with some dancing punches, knocking Avalon out of the ring. Avalon gets back in after a count of 7 and gets in Dunkerton’s face with a load roar. Dunkerton answers back and starts chopping and punching Avalon who stands his ground. A dropkick, however, sends Avalon end-over-end into a headstand against the turnbuckle. Avalon ducks a clothesline and comes back with a spinning heel kick. Avalon lifts Dunkerton up and dumps him stomach first on the top rope. Running knee strike on Dunkerton knocks him back to the apron. Peter Avalon hits a couple shoulder thrusts into the ribs of Dunkerton before the round mound of smackdown launches himself back into the ring into a sunset flip on Avalon. 1…2…no! Dunkerton slaps Avalon who gives chase right into a springboard dropkick from the middle rope, knocking Avalon to the outside of the ring. Peter Avalon gets up and starts to walk up the entrance as the referee counts him out. Avalon almost reaches the curtain before Sugar Dunkerton stops him, baseball bat extended, and chases him back down to ringside. Avalon rolls into the ring as the referee argues with Dasher telling him to get off the apron. Dasher points at Avalon with his bat which Avalon pulls through the ropes and rams into the ribs of Sugar Dunkerton. The referee hasn't seen it! Rollup!: 1....2....3!! Peter Avalon leaves the ring and heads off down the aisle at speed. He stops at the top of the ramp! “Still undefeated! 3-0! FEED ME NEXT! FEED ME NEXT!” A good *** rating.

    Kota Ibushi vs Matt Bentley
    Kota Ibushi starts the match pushing Matt Bentley into the ropes followed by a clean break. Bentley responds in kind shoving Ibushi into the corner but does not return the favor until the referee’s count reaches four. Bently ducks a roundhouse and rolls to the apron to buy some time. Ibushi fakes him out with a handspring. Bently gets back into the ring, obviously frustrated. Irish whip reversed but Ibushi slides under Bently’s kick. Bently blocks the lariat with his forearms and spins Ibushi into a DDT. Bentley dumps Ibushi to the outside but gets a kick to the face for climbing down to the floor. Ibushi rolls back into the ring and tries a baseball slide but Bentley catches him and Ibushi has a reversal for the reversal with a rana into the guard rail. Ibushi rolls into the ring and the referee starts to count. She gets to about a 5 before Bentley is up. Ibushi goes for a second turnbuckle moonsault but Bentley shoves him through the ropes hanging Ibushi upside down. Bently uses the situation to lock a sleeper on the Inverted Ibushi exploiting the full count before rolling back into the ring. Ibushi barely beats the count and gets stomped on in his way back into the ring. Bently hits a series of rolling suplexes shades of the Guerreros. Irish whip into the corner but Ibushi runs up the ropes and flips over Matt Bently before running to the opposite corner. Back heel kick off the second rope, Bentley goes down.

    Player Uno vs Willie Mack :
    Willie Mack enters to “Game Over” pushing a shopping cart containing a SNES super-scope, guitar hero controllers and an arcade stick among the usual stop signs and garbage can full of kendo sticks. Before he can reach the ring the lights go out and Anamanaguchi’s “The Dark One” plays as the lights strobe revealing Player Uno in the ring. Uno suicide dives to the outside knocking Willie Mack into a guard rail. The bell rings and the match is under way. Asai moonsault from player uno onto Willie Mack. Uno rummages around in the shopping cart and finds what looks like Travis Touchdown’s quad beam katana from No More Heroes only made out of light tubes. Uno misses and smashes the light tubes on the ring post. Willie Mack comes back with a flurry of punches and tosses Uno into the ring. He hurls the shopping cart over the top rope and climbs in. Uno floors Willie Mack with shot to the gut with a Superscope. Irish whip attempt gets reversed by Willie Mack. Pounce into the the shopping cart! Uno crawls into the corner and Willie Mack puts on a NES power-glove. He climbs up to the second rope and the crowd counts along to 10 punches. Cornet clothesline by Willie Mack! Slingshot dropkick brings Mack back into the ring. Willie Mack lifts Player Uno up for an electric chair drop but Uno rolls back into a reverse rana on a stop sign! Cover! 1…2…Willie Mack powers out. Willie Mack starts to get to his feet but Player Uno stops him by pointing a NES zapper to the back of his head execution style. Click click click. Nothing. Hard side suplex on Uno. Willie Mack gets only knees on the running shooting star press. Uno picks Willie Mack up, struggling to lift the big man for a Dig Dug Driver! Cover! 1…2…kickout! Player Uno climbs to the top rope but his frog splash attempt is cut off by a dragon punch! Willie Mack moves in for the kill. Chocolate Thunder Bomb!!! That shook the ring. 1....2....3!! Player Uno slides to the outside and grabs the glass case. He rolls back into the ring and shatters it over Willie Mack’s head revealing the championship belt inside. Uno picks up the title belt and poses over Willie’s unconscious body with it.**1\2 rating. Perfectly Acceptable Wrestling.

    BUSHI and Sexxxy Eddy work pretty well together due to their similar styles.

    BUSHI sent us a follow up e-mail saying “I think you might be pushing me too high up the card, the fans seem to be resenting me.”

    “How about booking me against Sexxxy Eddy? I'm sure we could do some pretty entertaining stuff that the fans would like.” – Johnny Goodtime. Not a bad idea.

    The ratings for W★ANGseday Night WAR need to improve.

    We got a 0.03 rating for 'W★ANGseday Night WAR'!
    The attendance level was 26 people.
    We made $390 from ticket sales.

    WWE got a 0.28 television rating for 'NXT'!
    The event was attended by 8025 people.
    They made $321000 from ticket sales.

    MCW got a 0.83 television rating for 'MCW Rage TV'!
    The event was attended by 175 people.
    They made $2625 from ticket sales.

    Our public image has risen three points to 15%.

    So, yeah, we need a name for our title and we desperately need to pull out of this financial spiral. I signed KUDO and Eddy to written contracts, so for the next year expect to see them once a month.

    Cassidy Riley?
    Clearly you meant to sign Orange Cassidy and got confused.

    Almost that entire show was to booked to build heel heat from Dyvim using my cunning strategy of "have them insult the Japanese".

    unrelated, kinda:


    2010 was a pleasant year for the dub. They saved up all their terrible moments and put them into one match (High Stakes) so the rest of the year would be OK.

    Music...
    Central Park Loader by Matt Gray (The Last Ninja 2 )
    Ninja Gaiden by The Minibosses
    The Flyin' King by Tommy Tallarico (Earthworm Jim 2)
    Stage Theme 3 by Kazuo Sawa (River City Ransom)
    Marble Garden Zone 1 by Howard Drossin (Sonic 3 & Knuckles)
    Mushroom Hill Zone 1 by Howard Drossin (Sonic 3 & Knuckles)
    Mushroom Hill Zone 2 by Howard Drossin (Sonic 3 & Knuckles)
    Pokémon Center by Junichi Masuda (Pokémon Red)
    Oak Research Lab by Junichi Masuda (Pokémon Red)
    Celadon City's Theme by Junichi Masuda (Pokémon Red)

    I seriously wonder if Eddie Kingston wakes up some nights, shivering from cold sweats and flashbacks of that one match. A rare instance where absolutely completely everything went wrong in one match. Brings a tear to me eye just watching it.

    Weirdly, the best shows (other than The Big Three) would be the small-arse shows like Home Sweet Home, where fifty fans had more enthusiasm and noise in them then a full Viking Hall.

    So, to summarise: 2010 was 2009 with shittier fans.

    All I know is if they offer 3/4 of their ppv's on the network I am ordering it without hesitation. I wouldn't even care what most of the other programming was, because I'd still be saving money.

    Exactly, which is why that idea can't work for them.

    But there's also the guy who usually only buys four or five PPVs who's willing to pay what amounts to the price of six to get to see eight. They're making money off of him, even if he feels like he's saving money.

    The feeling within the company is that the 1,000th Raw next Monday will go very smoothly because the show is so stacked, but that the company will have a difficult time filling three hours of the show each week. It is also being pointed out that a minor problem is that WWE can no longer do Smackdown tapings on Monday nights if they need to, such as earlier this month when they had to do both shows on Monday due to the Colorado wildfires forcing them to cancel the Tuesday tapings.
    The following matches are currently set or being discussed for SummerSlam:

    * Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H
    * WWE Title Match: CM Punk vs. John Cena
    * World Title Match: Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio vs. Dolph Ziggler
    * Daniel Bryan vs. Chris Jericho
    John Cena's Money in the Bank win was made within the last few weeks. At one point, he was going to be given the show off.
    Triple H has recently directed that title reigns should be longer in order to build the importance of the belts. Both CM Punk and Sheamus retained their titles at Money in the Bank and are expected to hold onto them for a while longer.

    really can't say anything on this, last year after MITB the belt went to rey, then cena that night, but punk came back and he still champ, then punk beat cana to be champ, then ADR cashed in and won, then cena won, then ADR won again, then punk beat him at november and now he been champ since. but i hope they can keep it fresh.

    also Paul, you know what will make the title more meeningful, have them be at the end of a PPV, not before a Ryback match.

    It worked, Cassidy Riley is now my least favourite wrestler on the planet.

    Fun fact: I wanted to give him a grizzled veteran gimmick but he's one year too young. Spread sheet Cassidy Riley is just the worst kind of person.

    As it stands right now the top faces are:
    1. Kota Ibushi
    2. Dasher Hatfield
    3. Willie Mack
    4. Sugar Dunkerton
    5. KUDO

    and the top heels are

    1. Player Uno
    2. Matt Bentley
    3. Cassidy Riley
    4. Sexxxy Eddy
    5. Lancealot Bravado

    If Ziggler is in the WHT match at SS, what happened to his briefcase between now and then?

    And based off RAW, I would expect to see Zig/Jericho before Jericho/Bryan.

    STAMFORD, Conn., July, 18, 2012 – WWE® (NYSE:WWE) today announced the details of Monday Night Raw’s historic 1,000th episode this Monday when the longest-running weekly television show in U.S. history moves to a three-hour format with a new start time of 8/7C on USA Network. Raw has aired more original episodes than some of the most popular television series of all time, including The Simpsons, Gunsmoke, Lassie and Monday Night Football.

    WWE CHAMPIONSHIP – MAIN EVENT
    A little more than one week after he won his first Money in the Bank® Ladder Match for a WWE Championship contract, WWE Superstar John Cena® will cash in live on Raw’s 1,000th episode against WWE Champion CM Punk® in the main event.

    WWE LEGENDS
    Raw’s 1,000th episode will showcase the most memorable moments from the past two decades and celebrate the unmatched staying power of Monday Night Raw starting at 8/7C with a reunion of WWE Superstars Triple H® and Shawn Michaels® of D-Generation X®, the anti-establishment group which revolutionized sports-entertainment.

    BROCK LESNAR® RESPONDS TO TRIPLE H®
    The episode also marks the return of Brock Lesnar®, who will make his first live appearance in nearly three months and will respond directly to Triple H®’s challenge for a match at SummerSlam®.

    DANIEL BRYAN® AND AJ®’S WEDDING
    WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan® may have lost to WWE Champion CM Punk at Money in the Bank with AJ™ as the special guest referee, but that didn’t deter him from expressing his love for the unpredictable WWE Diva. The two will celebrate their tumultuous love affair on Raw’s 1,000th episode with a wedding.

    MOST INTERACTIVE SHOW ON TELEVISION
    The 1,000th episode of Monday Night Raw will also look toward the future as the count towards another 1,000 episodes begins. The show ushers in a new era of interactive programming, where viewers will become part of the action by using social media platforms like Tout, Twitter, Shazam®, Instagram and Facebook to have a voice in the show and control outcomes live. The best fan touts, tweets, photos and comments will be featured during the telecasts, on WWE.com, at live events, and on social media reaching WWE’s more than 100 million social media followers.

    MONDAY NIGHT RAW PRE-SHOW

    That would actually be the best heel thing ever.

    Nope. That would be a funny thing to happen though. Guy gets regular shot that he earned and didn't cash in on, and wins.
