This wrestling show quickly grew into one of the most popular sports/entertainment shows ever. In addition to presenting matches between the stars of the WWF, this program spent most of its time on the elaborate backstage story that had developed, involving feuds, deals, backstabbings and romances between the wrestlers, managers, referees and commissioners.

This show was originally called "WWF Monday Night Raw" and it was a one hour show. But in 1997, "Raw" became a two hour show, and the name was changed to "WWF Raw is War", signifying the Monday Night Wars, the ratings "war" with WCW Monday Nitro (1995). After the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, the name was changed to simply "WWF Raw", to remove the reference to war and to signify that the Monday Night Wars were over (WWF had bought out WCW that year). Finally, in 2002, the name was changed again to "WWE Raw", due to the WWF being sued by the World Wildlife Foundation for use of the WWF logo. In 2012, the show was extended to three hours.

WWF Monday Night Raw (now called simply Raw) started in 1993. In my opinion, 1993 was not the WWF's best year but Raw has been consistently good throughout.
Raw was different when it made it's debut in 1993. Back then, some of the WWF's shows still featured jobber matches but Raw was different because it had all the top stars on it. It followed feuds week by week and Raw was the perfect place to settle a grudge.
Raw has given us some of the best moments through the years. My favourite time was 1997 when Shawn Michaels feuded with the Hart Foundation. You never know what to expect on Raw. Anybody could show up. Anybody could beat anybody else and wrestlers always aired their grievances on Raw.
Today, Raw is as good as ever. No WWE fan should ever miss it.
