From its early beginnings in the illustrious Manhattan Center Studios Grand Ballroom in 1993, WWE's Monday Night Raw has massively evolved today into a perennial leader in sports entertainment. Now pulling in an average of 11.5 million viewers per week, the super show has gone on to become a worldwide television success and is now set to air its 1000th episode.

On a star-studded night that is set to make both cable and wrestling history, the flagship show will also kick off its 3 hour format.
The wrestling extravaganza will include several undisclosed special guest appearances, a WWE Heavyweight Championship Match and a wedding, amongst other things.
The talent stacked card will not pull any punches as it returns with several of its old superstars.
"The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels will be back alongside "The Game" Triple H as Degeneration X reunites. Former UFC standout and "War Machine" Brock Lesnar will come out of hiatus and answer Triple H's previous Summerslam challenge.
Also, Daniel Bryan may have lost out on a title opportunity to "The Second City Savor" CM Punk, but that won't stop the master of the La Belle lock from tying the knot to his bipolar beauty A.J.
Blockbuster actor and WWE's very own Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will also be present. And chances are, be laying the smack down on somebody's candy ass.
After revealing himself as the anonymous General Manager, the miniature Irishman Hornswoggle must now name his permanent replacement. What will this mean for the screechy Vickie Guerrero and the rehired Teddy Long?
Be sure to tune in to the USA Network next Monday July 23rd at 8/7 CT to see some of your favorite Raw superstars return for a night of the ages!
