I don't think this has been mentioned on here yet, but wwf.com has the new Raw logo up. I think it looks all right. Better than what they have been using since droppping the "is War" off the name of the show. It may have to grow on me a bit before really taking to it. It looks kinda furturistic. Any thoughts on it?
I wonder if there will be a new set, and if it will match the look of the logo.

And you all are right in the middle of it. Yes, Hell has relocated to Earth. CRZ: My friends, *Hell* is watching THIS crap take place before my eyes. -- WWF Raw is War, 1/11/99
Originally posted by Parts UnknownWell, it's damn cool, but it really REALLY looks like the Empire Strikes Back logo.
Shit. I can't believe that got passed me, and ESB is my favorite movie of all time! And in my excited state over the new logo I didn't even notice that wwf.com does indeed say that it is "rumored" that there will be a new set. I hop the set change isn't too drastic, though. I love that set!
From the Jim Ross report, confirmation of a set change, and info on announcers:
A new RAW set is being constructed along with new RAW music for the show open, I am told. I expect to continue to broadcast with Jerry "The King" Lawler on Monday nights, while Michael Cole will be getting a new partner for SmackDown! Of course, that could all change by Monday night!
As to the Kane/Four Horsemen ... I think he's just gripping his "chokeslammin'" wrist threateningly. No 4H reference intended, I'd bet.
Must just be me, but the "radical new design" for the Raw logo is exactly the same as the old one, barring the RADICAL NEW ITALICS. If this is any indication of the "radical new set" than look for the WWF to just take the old set and subtley slant everything slightly to the right.
A great show, far better than RAW. Couple things I liked: Henry is starting to actually wrestle the way the world's strongest man would. I noticed this first against Brock, when he no-sold the clotheslines and they were equal on the lockup.
