The product isn't good enough for two hours let alone 3. What will happen now will we get a full two hours of hornswoggle, DX and Santino and then an hour if we're lucky of wrestling.
 
Concentrate on making two hours worth watching than thinking you can pull of 3!

They should stick with 2 or go 2 and a half, but not three. Yes it might mean more young wrestlers will get a chance to be showcased, but again that might also be a back burner for WWE, I think they should just add an extra 30 minutes and try that before going with 3 hours.
 
WWE are starting to threat here because of TNA and in my honest opinion, WWE havent got anything to be afraid off as TNA will never beat WWE, Impact only gets between 1.0 and 1.3 each week, while Raw is nearly always 3.0+.

I would say yes if they end the brand-extension, otherwise definately not.

With the current product 3 hours would be overkill, plus it would take away some of the special feel of PPV's as they are a hour longer than the typical WWE tv-shows.

If they end the brand-extension though more tv-time would be required to show-case all the talent and they could end up in a similar predicament to TNA where they simply dont have enough time for everyone, so in that scenario a third hour on Raw would be a wise move.

Well, now that TNA is moving to Mondays... let's see if USA Network tries to push for 3 hours of RAW again.  It could actually work if WWE would dedicate the new first hour to highlight either the Divas or tag team division.  Or maybe they could bring back the European championship.

Its not gonna happen for reason...It will show TNA that they are sene as competition to vince. Not to mention, why would Vince want to try and beat them already? He has stated he wished WCW was still around, this is his new ocmpetition, why would he try to get ANOTHER adavntage on them...unless he's insecure?

TNA wont beat WWE or even come close for a few years, so lets see f in 3-4 years WWE gets three hours then. If so then they are worried, but I cant imagine why WWE would be worried right now. TNA is not that great at the moment anyways.

^^ Just proves my point. TNA is nothing to go crazy compete mode in until they start hitting 2.5's or atleast I wouldnt bother putting my creative team through another hour of programming to compete until they hit that number.

3 hours of RAW would be torturous to go through every week.  If they try this stunt, they may just screw themselves in to the ground like WCW did.   3 hours of RAW is just too much to endure every week along with NXT, SmackDown, AM RAW and for one week each month, a PPV.

Have to agree with you Maria, with the fact that WWE already have 5 shows on television on a weekly basis (Raw, SD!, NXT, Superstars and AM Raw), I think a regular 3 hour Raw each week would hurt WWE on a rating wise type basis and it would also affect WWE money wise.
 
I think WWE are best suited to stick it out with Raw on 2 hours a week, even if TNA does get on Monday nights, they are only hitting 1.2's and 1.3's with the occasional one hitting more, but other than that WWE shouldn't really be that threatened by TNA's Impact because its in no shape or in no competition to be a threat to WWE's flagship show, Raw.

a 3 hour each week Raw would also make people wonder why they should pay for a 3 hour PPV, especially if it has the same matches as said PPV, even if they are gimmicked.
 
i hated the 3 hour Raw specials, like for the Draft, as after the first hour and a half, they felt full of filler, and after the 2 hour mark it just dragged.  i find it hard to think of any reason why a weekly 3 hour showcould ever be justified, especially with the state of WWE right now.
