Did You Know?

Trivia:
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.See more »

Raw Really Was A War, 5 January 2003
Author: Big Movie Fan from England

Back on March 10th 1997, WWF Monday Night Raw became Raw Is War figuratively and literally.

I believe 1997 was one of the best years for the WWF (now WWE). There were really heated feuds throughout such as The Hart Foundation VS Steve Austin, The Undertaker VS everyone, Triple H VS Mankind and so many others. Raw is War aired during the battle with rival promotion WCW (now defunct). There were PPV caliber matches throughout Raw Is War and there were some fantastic moments. 1998 was a great year too as WWF owner Vince McMahon became an authoritarian figure who feuded with the anti authority Stone Cold Steve Austin. The Rock was also coming into prominence as a wrestler as was Triple H. There were many other great moments such as the appearance of Mike Tyson, D-X 'invading' WCW, the Owen Hart tribute show and the episode from the 26th March 2001 where Shane McMahon betrayed his father Vince and brought WCW.

Raw Is War became simply Raw after a few years and is still a relatively entertaining program. However, the Raw Is War years really were WAR and worth tracking down on tape if possible.
