July 23 will mark the 1,000th episode of Monday Night RAW, a milestone that most shows don't ever get to hit. The impressive part about RAW's milestone is that the shows have come weekly without repeats, making it an unheard of accomplishment in television history.
RAW has had a lot of interesting and unexpected events happen over the course of nearly 1,000 weeks to make it a must-watch show for pro-wrestling fans.
A new superstar can debut in virtually any regard and on virtually any show in WWE. Some have debuted on pay-per-view or come through the ranks on an NXT-like show. WWE SuperStars has been an avenue for some, while SmackDown and even the defunct ECW brand have given us the first look at other superstars. However, if you really want to make an impact, RAW is the place to debut.
Live on television, an impact is sure to be made, and the whole world can be talking about it the next day. Just look at what happened when The Nexus invaded RAW (though they aren't on this list because they were seen on NXT prior to their RAW debut).
Still, the invasion of those eight ex-rookies was a shocking end to an episode of RAW and really made the following weeks something to keep an eye on. A debut has to mean something because you only get one chance at it (well, unless you change your gimmick).
Here are 10 of the most memorable debuts that all happened on the flagship show for WWE, Monday Night RAW.
