Actually wasn't hour #2 called Warzone. This is how I remember it:
Hour 1-- started of with a cool ass intro where a lot of the WWF superstars walk into a warehouse. There are dogs, explosions, fights, and just plain mayhem in the background. At the end I remember Bret Hart and a couple others fighting in a ring set on fire. All thing while "Beautiful People"(and later an in-house song)played. Then a grafic comes up that says "Raw", which sends us into the arena where all those big pyro goes off. I was freaked at first because it was HUGE back in the day.
Hour 2-- For some reason they, at the end of hour one, actually preview the next hour and put the credits up. After the commercial they replay the same intro, except with "Warzone" at the end. They waste money and start off the hour with more pyro.
I never got why they did that...

"We can't bust heads like we used to, but we have our ways. One trick is to tell them stories that don't go anywhere. Like that time I took the ferry over to Shelbyville; I needed a new heel for my shoe. So, I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickle, and in those days, nickles had pictures of bumblebees on them. "Give me five bees for a quarter," you'd say. Now where were we? Oh yeah, the important thing was that I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn't have any white onions, because of the war; the only thing you can get was those big yellow ones." -Abe Simpson
Won't this run the risk of burning a lot of your workers out? If they are now just not working RAW and Smackdown, but now 16 PPV's a year as well (I believe they are running 16 this year like last year as well).
