Reason Sheamus Did Not Appear On Raw, Is Raw Permanently Going Three Hours?
— There was strong discussion a month ago that if TNA’s iMPACT! moved to Monday nights from 8 to 10 p.m, Raw would move to three hours each and every week in response. In an update on the situation, talk of a permanently moving Raw to three hours has since died down and appears highly unlikely at this point.
— Going head-to-head with the Olympics, Raw last week did a 3.4 rating, scoring a 3.3 in the first hour (4.807 million viewers) and a 3.5 in the second (5.111 million). Persons 18-to-49 did a 2.16 for number two and three of the night, and males 18-to-49 did a 3.02 for numbers two and three.
— Sheamus was originally scheduled to face John Cena last night on Raw with the winner facing Batista at WrestleMania, but he suffered a concussion during his Elimination Chamber Match and was not medically cleared to perform.
