In an interview with TalkSPORT Mick Foley revealed that the third hour of Raw will become the edgier part of the show.
“The idea is that the third hour is going to get rougher, wilder, and more unpredictable” said Foley. “When I was GM, I knew that people were breaking towards the SmackDown show because it was the darling of the Internet.”
Continuing on the subject of the third hour of Raw, which USA Network pays for, Foley said:
“The idea was ‘why don’t you try [having] a third hour.’ It was like a giant albatross around your neck. The third hour is really difficult. I think it’s an idea to have the third hour more unpredictable and more like the Attitude Era.”
USA Network have already started to suggest ideas to Vince McMahon with the introduction of the 24/7 Championship, it will be interesting to see what comes next.
