WWE RAW often goes live without being fully written

WWE RAW, the company’s flagship show and one of the longest-running episodic series’ on American television, apparently often goes on the air without being fully written.

The Monday night show has been a part of WWE TV and the landmark show since it first aired in January 1993 on USA Network. Since then the show has had 1513 episodes, and won a fabled ratings war in the late 1990s against Turner Broadcasting.

Renee Paquette served as a personality on WWE TV between 2012 and 2020, featuring on RAW both as a backstage interviewer and as an announcer. She also hosted pre-shows and post-shows like RAW Talk. On a recent episode of her Throwing Down with Renee and Miesha podcast, Paquette noted that RAW often went on the air without a finished running order during her tenure.

“There is times that I’ve gone on the air with Monday Night RAW and the show is not written. It is full being re-done, we don’t know what’s happening. So creative can most certainly change. It happens very often, also the production doesn’t get out until 3pm, and thats on a good day, that’s when things are running smoothly.” Paquette said
