Adam Pearce Announces Commercial-Free First Hour Of WWE Raw, Teases Surprise Appearances

Coming 24 hours after WrestleMania 40, an event that fundamentally shook up the existing WWE landscape on more than one level, Monday night’s episode of “WWE Raw” was always going to be a date. But an announcement from “Raw” general manager Adam Pearce posted on WWE social media before the show seems to indicate that this episode could be particularly newsworthy.

“We are less than a day away from the biggest WrestleMania of all time,” Pearce said. “History written and stories finished. Tonight at Wells Fargo, it’s ‘Raw’ after ‘Mania, what does that mean? Anything and everything can happen, you never know who’s going to appear, and I’m not giving any spoiler alerts. Other than this: The first hour of “Monday Night Raw,” 8/7 Central on USA tonight, is commercial-free, and I can promise you this: you won’t want to miss it.”

The “Raw” after WrestleMania is traditionally considered must-see television, as it is usually characterized by debuts, comebacks and a raucous crowd still excited from having witnessed “The Showcase of the Immortals” the night before. In recent years, the famous “Raw” after “Mania” has lost some of its luster, and last year’s was notoriously a disaster, coming just after disgraced former WWE CEO Vince McMahon, who forced his return to the company and sold it to Endeavor. . McMahon, who resigned from WWE months earlier following reports he paid more than $12 million in hush money to cover up possible accusations of sexual misconduct and abuse, destroyed creative plans created by WWE Chief Content Officer Paul Levesque and took control. of the show directly, which resulted in a criticized show and a devastating blow to locker room morale. This year, reports from WWE sources suggest that Monday’s “Raw” will represent a return to form since the company completely disassociated itself from McMahon following the fallout from Janel Grant’s high-profile trial that led to his second resignation, instead accepting Levesque as the new creative and executive face of WWE.
