Stephanie McMahon did an interview with Eric Goldman of IGN.com on the announcement that RAW would be three hours on the USA network starting on July 23rd.
On the challenges of filling an extra hour of content each week:
“It’s going to be the first-ever regularly scheduled three-hour program on television and I think we’ve got a pretty good handle on it thus far! You know, we do a three hour show called a Pay-Per-View almost every month and Monday Night RAW, we’ve done three hours before, so we feel great about it.”
On fan interaction:
“This is going to be the most interactive show in television history. Our audience is going to have the chance to effect something in the show every week.” As far as what the audience would be determining, she said it would be, “Matches, stipulations, anything and everything. Different things every week.”
Her return on being on-camera:
“Who knows? Maybe you’ve got to tune into the 1000th RAW on July 23rd!”
