Smackdown To Three Hours?

Apparently it’s a possibility.  I sit through that show for years now and THIS is my reward?


Seriously though, WWE does NOT need more television.  If they want Smackdown to look like a bigger deal, stop making its wrestlers jobbers to the stars for the Raw guys.  Bad idea all around.

    Who the hell would think that’s a good idea?! Just make Main Event 2 hours, but good lord when will they learn we can’t sit through 3 hours. WCW did it and it went bad. TNA did it and it went bad. Raw is doing it and it just sucks the life out of anything good.

    Mother of God.

    I’d argue that Raw needs to back to two hours, and now not only are they keeping it to three hours, but now we might get six hours a week of programming, seven if you include NXT?

    Four hours is damn long enough. Hell, if Russo left WWF over having to write four hours of TV a week, what do you think their current writers feel?

    Actually, using that example of Russo, that might not always be a bad thing…

    I honestly don’t see Smackdown going 3 Hours as well. They have already started putting more emphasis back into it again anyway. Im fine with RAW staying the way it is but Smackdown should stay at 2 Hrs.

    This Jay guy would be fine …

  6. Rocko says:

    The WWE refused to let Raw go to three hours for awhile (apparently USA network had been wanting them to do it for a long time) so I don’t think this is true at all.

    SMH, hopefully this does NOT happen. The last thing WWE needs at this point is ANOTHER 3 hour show. Not even WCW did anything this ambitious.
