Raw originated from the Grand Ballroom at Manhattan Center Studios, a small New York City theater, and aired live each week.

The combination of an intimate venue and live action proved highly successful.

WWE Raw (sometimes stylized as RAW) is a professional wrestling television program for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) that currently airs on the USA Network in the United States.

The show's name was also used to refer to the Raw brand, in which WWE employees were assigned to work and perform on that program between 20 during the WWE Brand Extension.

Beginning in mid-1996, however, thanks primarily to the n Wo angle, Monday Nitro started a ratings win-streak that lasted for 84 continuous weeks, ending on April 13, 1998.

On February 3, 1997, Monday Night Raw went to a two-hour format, as the Attitude Era was starting to come in full stream in the WWF.

The show also featured an interview with Razor Ramon.

Vince Mc Mahon, Rob Bartlett and "Macho Man" Randy Savage served as the original hosts of Raw.

Sean Mooney conducted the interviews and Bobby "The Brain" Heenan also helped contribute.

In reality, this was a storyline between Monsoon and his close friend Heenan, who decided to leave the World Wrestling Federation in order to lighten his travel schedule and because he didn't want to take a 50% paycut.

After about a year, Raw moved out of the Manhattan Center and traveled to various regular Federation venues in the United States.

Until September 1999 WWF Raw broadcast live every other week to save costs, but ratings and pay-per-view buy-rate increased, allowing them to justify doing a weekly live show.
