Raw to air live on Christmas and New Year’s Day


For the first time ever, Monday Night Raw will be airing live on Christmas Day as well on New Year’s Day, taking away another holiday for the WWE Superstars and crew.

Usually there is a very small Christmas break with shows resuming on December 26. This year, Christmas and New Year’s fall on a Monday so it looks like it will be a regular weekend of shows for everyone involved.

The two holidays are usually big sporting days, with the NFL, the NBA, cricket, and soccer events held on either one or both days around the world.
