WWE Raw is one of the most iconic programs in the pro-wrestling world. With a 3-hour runtime, the show has a significant edge over AEW Dynamite according to Booker T. With Triple H as the WWE Creative head, another big change is coming.

Andrew Zarian reports that WWE Monday Night Raw is going to have significantly less commercials in the show’s third-hour. This means that the show is trying to keep the attention of the show’s viewers gripped.

Last hour of Raw tonight will have limited commercials.

Corey Graves has previously spoken a lot about the importance of the 10 o’clock for WWE. He said on his After The Bell podcast that most fans want the biggest revelation or twist on that hour, which is what WWE is trying to capture.

That is when our viewership is the strongest. That is when people really look for the biggest bang possible. So we’ve been trying to deliver that rather than trying to string them along for that extra hour, for that third hour, to where the third hour, you’ll still see tons of it and Monday night was no exception.

WWE is keeping their third-hour in strong focus. USA Network is behind this decision, and it’s in their control to put more or less advertising slots in a show’s run. The following is being advertised for this week’s edition of Monday Night Raw.
