Is raw still 3 hours?

The two highlights of the night were Enzo Amore getting revenge on Big Cass by defeating him one-on-one to close out the main event as well as a huge showdown between Sasha Banks and Bayley for the WWE Women’s Championship. Unfortunately for Raw results and viewers, there is no indication that Monday Night Raw results is going back to its original 3-hour format anytime soon with all 3 hours being advertise for just 5 weeks before Christmas.
It we’ll just have to wait and see what happens over the next few months. Monday night raw ratings will probably continue to be down from last year. When you look at how much WWE has been struggling over the past year and a half or so with injuries sidelining talent like Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns, not to mention Brock Lesnar still only wrestling a handful of times each year. You can also see it when you look at how poorly their stock has been doing since Wrestlemania which makes me think it could be time for Vince McMahon to get his priorities straight if he wants WWE around long enough for anyone currently on the roster to reach retirement age.
