WWE sent out a press release via BusinessWire that talks about “WWE RAW Interactive,” a WWE.com special that will perfectly synchronize with happenings on WWE RAW. The program will last until 1/17/2005.
“Our fans are so passionate about WWE that they actively seek new ways to interact with the brand and its Superstars,” said Kurt Schneider, WWE Executive Vice President, Marketing. “We know many of them watch RAW while emailing their friends or participating in web chats about the show. This interactive experience puts them right in the middle of the action.”
For those unaware, using GoldPocket Interactive, the same company that provides interactive TV-web software for clients like GSN, fans will get to take part in opinion polls, predict the winners of matches, have access to exclusive information and participate in RAW trivia. Participants will collect points for the chance to win weekly prizes, as well as a grand prize trip to WrestleMania.
Results of polls and the scoreboard will be displayed on the RAW telecast as well.
There will also be live chat about the show in the ITV console.
