In a Tweet just released by WWE’s very own John Cena:

So, um, yeah. Three hours of this shit from July until USA realizes that the ratings are going to be even worse than they have been up until now. Imagine the possibilities though:
WWE could truly work to develop younger talent and characters, build intriguing and fun storylines, and most of all, with that extra hour of programming to fill they won’t have any more excuses not to work MORE actual wrestling into the show…right?
Wrong. This is how it’s going to turn out. We’ll get even more recaps and video packages. Tons more backstage hijinks between whoever the hell is in charge and acting like the corporate asshole and we’ll see even more commercials than ever before.
Yes, it’s going to be the same 4 matches that last all of 20 minutes combined, along with even more stilted dialogue and uncomfortable acting in the ring and behind the curtain for your viewing pleasure.
My RAW Regurgitation is typically clocking at least 3,000 words per entry, and now they’re going to make me go to damn near 5,000 words to convey what they couldn’t in three hours of programming.
I have to say, this is an awful idea and I see it being scaled back down to two hours by September. And that’s too goddamned long to wait if you ask me.
