In South Africa (as well as all other countries carrying the international version of Raw), WWE has begun piping in commentary and removing any reference to the original 3-hour runtime. Raw’s shift to 3 hours has really hurt the quality of the international version which, without ad-breaks, only runs for 45 minutes. Matches are heavily edited down to less than 5 minutes and even with the social media bits removed, the show is dominated by backstage and in-ring segments as well as countless video promos.
