A Vince McMahon appearance can make the casual viewer entertained, but that feeling will wear away at the end of the show.
WWE needs to change a certain aspect of Raw and that may come in the form of switching from a three-hour show back to two hours.
Fans haven’t reacted well to the transition to the three-hour format. Ratings have steadily declined since Raw 1000.
An extra hour of WWE programming in their leading show ideally gave room for other superstars who had previously been shunned from regular programming to be seen.
For the most part, this has not been the case.
Instead, CM Punk is given more segments to keep the viewers entertained.
CM Punk is one of WWE’s top superstars but he should not carry the entire program, especially considering that John Cena is out of action.
By announcing the switch back to the traditional format, Vince McMahon could use the two hours more wisely now that he understands the scramble that inherently comes with the extra hour of programming.
