Normally on WWF / WWE TV the main camera; the main camera is on the right hand side of the arena, as you come down the enteranceway. This camera is known as the "Hard Right" camera.

2 weeks ago on Raw, I noticed that Bischoff was facing the left hand side of the arena, away from the hard right, which led to a close-up camera facing him from the side as he gave his ego speech.

This week on Raw, I noticed that, aside from the commentary position being on the left hand side of the ramp, the hard right camera was replaced with a hard left camera; creating the effect that the enteranceway comes from the right hand side of the screen rahter than the left.

Now, from memory, I'm pretty sure that WCW used to use a hard right camera angle, though the poorly trained power plant talent often ended up facing the wrong way during the interviews.

Was this a factor of the arena, does SD! (which I'll admit I haven't watched in a month) now use the same camera angle, or is this another small difference that has been bought in?

Sorry if it's been mentioned before....

Hey! Iīm glad somebody notices these things too? While I havenīt wathced the WWF in a while, I can confirm that the WCW used the 'hard left' camera, and also had itīs production corner (where all the hand-held stuff is based) in the near left-hand corner while the WWF has (had?) it in the far right hand corner. Iīll be looking forward to seeing the changes when I get back.

Expressing myself EVERY day - but especially on July 22, 2002!

I am not 100% sure what you mean but if you mean 'hey the ramp was to the right while usually it is to the left' then I can tell you that they did have that before.
I am never sure why but I guess it just depends on the arena.
Standard for WWE however is ramp left crew right.

In my humble opinion... Bradshaw seems pretty smart with finances, and from what I've seen of his writings, he's very patriotic and supportive of our troops. I don't know what his habits are regarding facial creams or BBQ sauce.
