WWE may have managed to salvage the latest Monday Night Raw with the shock appearance of superstar wrestler The Rock, but all this did was mask the fact that WWE Raw is quickly becoming a weekly three-hour snorfest.
A raft of major superstars were missing from the latest Raw, and it showed for two hours until the People's Champion turned up to quash all of WWE's problems for one night.
Raw is becoming stale
But The Rock won't be turning up every week, and it's likely that the next time we will see him in action will be next April when he takes to the ring at WrestleMania 31.
So in the meantime, WWE have to continue on with what they already have on their roster. And this is not a lot when you consider that WWE are missing superstars such as Daniel Bryan, Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns. The acrimonious exit of CM Punk has not helped WWE's cause this year as well, meaning that the only reason why most WWE fans are currently tuning in every week is to see Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins in action.
The majority of WWE fans would agree that Monday Night Raw is in serious need of a shake-up. And it looks as though legendary commentator Jim Ross has the answer, or at least he thinks so anyway.
"Longer matches on RAW should not be interrupted by a commercial break which would not only give the show a different feel but also would allow the match to tell a non interrupted story. Perhaps that is something WWE will consider in the future," Ross explained on his website this week.
Ross makes a good point with these comments because certain longer matches on Raw have become disjointed and disrupted by these breaks. You would have a hard job convincing Vince McMahon that WWE should move around their commercial breaks, with money being his main goal. But one day, McMahon will have to chose whether he wants to keep WWE's fans happy or keep showing commercials that disrupt the flow of the show.
