RAW ON SPIKETV - SEPTEMBER 26TH
The following is a script of WWE's RAW. It is the 4th rewrite of the show that would air on September 26th. While WWE typically shreds scripts immediately after the show, this copy surivived and offers a rare glimpse at how WWE's flagship show originates in written form. It is interesting to note just how scripted a typical episode of WWE television is, with moments of apparent spontaniaty mapped out well in advance. The script is five pages in length and is broken down segment by segment with listings of the agent in charge of each matchup, time breakdowns and key points written out for commentators to drive home to the viewing audience. A (***) in the script infers a pause for crowd reaction.
