Apparently the name of the new Saturday morning show will be called A.M. Raw.

From http://www.wwe.com/inside/news/amraw1 :

"WWE Champion John Cena, Shawn Michaels, Kurt Angle, Ric Flair, Carlito and all of the Superstars of RAW are taking over Saturday mornings, beginning Oct. 8.

A.M. RAW, WWE’s newest show on the USA Network, will debut at 9 a.m. and figures to be the most action-packed hour of television you can find on a Saturday morning.

A.M. RAW will keep you posted on all of the latest WWE news and notes and make sure you know everything that’s happening on Monday Night RAW."

From my point of view, it sounds like they moved Heat to Saturday mornings. Notice it seems to only be a Raw recap show. And as for the name? Eh.

If they're essentially changing Heat to be a recap show on Saturday mornings, color me disappointed.

I understood the need for a weekly WWF/E recap show when people didn't have basic cable. But with TiVo, the wwe.com videos, and even DVD recorders (not to mention the fact they are recapping a show from the SAME CHANNEL), who needs this?

I'd assume that it is geared toward the younger audience that watches TV on Saturday mornings rather than Monday nights. Mind you, I don't think it's a very successful direction to go, but I think that would be the thought process. They really should have just made this a B-show.

...they could have resurrected Superstars. Luckily, I won't have to sit through AM Raw since we don't get USA Network here in Canada.

Cannot remember which site, could be PWInsider, said that WWE originally wanted the Saturday morning show to be a recap of both brands but since RAW is only on USA and Smackdown is on other channel and company USA didn't want anything about the Smackdown brand mentioned on the network. So WWE decide to just make it a all RAW brand show.

Damn, I really miss WWF All American Wrestling and WWF LiveWire, back when they actually had people calling in. why did they stop that anyway?

In Eugene, Oregon, however, Comcast Cable has decreed that basic Cable is only... twenty channels or so. Your locals, UPN, WB, Discovery, Hallmark, the Comcast Channel (which is sorta a Portland Based cable access), Local Cable access, BOTH C-Spans, and like some shopping channels, and maybe... Golf.

So with basic cable I don't get USA at all. It being channel 58. Jerks.
