WWE would be idiotic if they go 3 hours, but the way and the state WWE are in right now, it wouldnt surprise me to see them go 3 hours, Vince has lost his marbles and honestly, maybe its time he stepped down from the WWE.

Actually it's been said that USA Network wants RAW to go to 3 hours and Vince keeps saying no. 
 
Of course Vince might also understand that adding a 3rd hour could proof to be a nightmare for WWE's international broadcast deals. 
 
Vince probably also remembers how Nitro tried to be a PPV every week and that WCW PPV rates suffered for it.

exactly.
 
it can only do bad things for WWE to put on a weekly PPV, rather than a 2 hour weekly "episodic" broadcast.

Quote The three-hour RAW from New Orleans, Louisiana in two weeks will be WWE's third three-hour show in five weeks. That night will see the 2010 Slammy Awards.
 
I think WWE are testing the waters for it to become a permanent thing, which would be a great thing because......
 
1) We would have an extra hour of CM Punk on commentary.
 
2) More TV time would be around to help build pay per views more.
 
3) More wrestling time so no need for stupid short matches, as matches could be much longer.

I dunno, maybe it would take away a bit from the PPV's, as part of their appeal is that they are on for longer than weekly TV.

Plus, as Raw has bad weeks sometimes, would you really want to sit through 3 hrs of it, because when WWE is bad it can be really awful.

They just want more rating again and having a 3 hr RAW special every other week could get them more ratings!

I have to admit I haven’t been too overjoyed by the trend of endless “Special 3 Hour Raw” appearing every other week.

 

But I started to wonder if this might be a test.  Let’s face it… SmackDown hasn’t been commanding the best ratings on Syfy.  There are also the rumors of unifying all the titles.

 

I’ve heard that the press for 3 hour shows comes from USA Network. But I have to wonder if WWE isn’t prepping for ending the brand extension.  A 3 hours show would make a lot more sense if it was the only weekly program.  And it would allow WWE to maintain more of their combined roster.

Not a good move, IMO.

It will suck if they keep Raw as it is because i'm already bored seeing the same guys on two two hour shows without giving them an extra hour to bore me. Keep the 'Smackdown' guys off Raw and scrap the Super Show shit. Then you can use that extra hour........

1) To have a good 20-25 minute main event every week that wouldn't look out of place on the Mania card.

2) To let the divas have a chance to bring back the glory days of the division by letting them go for 10 minutes.
