It looks like the Raw and Smackdown Pre-Shows are a thing of the past.
This is the second week in a row that neither one of WWE’s flagship programs had pre-shows that aired prior to the live broadcasts. Remember, last month the pre-shows were cut from a half hour to 15 minutes long and were filmed backstage at the shows, as opposed to WWE’s television studios in Stamford, CT.
Given that Raw, Smackdown and 205 Live is six hours of live programming, it’s probably for the best WWE has completely eliminated the extra time. We never sat through all of that and can’t imagine that very many people consumed every single minute live every single week.
