WWE News: Bruce Prichard reveals how WWE RAW was formed; says it was a cost-cutting measure

Before WWE RAW there was WWF Prime Time wrestling and Vince McMahon was not happy about the proceedings. Speaking on his Something to Wrestle With podcast, WWE producer Bruce Prichard explained how that led to the emergence of the red brand.

The format had gone from Bobby & Gorilla to this kind of round table format if you will. That didn’t click. It just really didn’t click. We were looking for different things, obviously, I had nothing to do with it beforehand. But once I got there everybody’s ‘what do you think of this?’ and it just, it wasn’t good. It was a compilation show with a compilation panel. There was no consistency to the show at all, other than I think Vince (McMahon) and Bobby (Heenan). We were looking for ways to save money, we were looking for a different presentation of the show, which is where the germ of RAW came from. (via sescoops)

Bruce Prichard went on to elaborate more on the topic on his podcast.

He went on to explain the concept behind WWE RAW and what were the main objectives of the project.

No. It was more of a cost-cutting measure. It was looking at ways to produce this show without doing it on the road. And look at delivering a product that was unique and that was different. One thing that would make it unique and different was going live. The other part is we wanted to do it in a unique setting, a smaller more intimate setting than the big arenas. The original concept was to build the studio where our current television studio was in the warehouse section that. Make that into an arena that would hold maybe 500 – 1,000 people. (via sescoops)
