Raw 30 makes another record

Last Monday evening, WWE aired its Raw 30, or the episode of Monday Night Raw dedicated to the thirtieth anniversary of its red show. Numerous legendary athletes had obviously been invited to the episode, such as D-X, The Undertaker, Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, Ron Simmons and many others.

As it turns out, WWE, thanks to this historic show, has made its umpteenth record in terms of its audience, with Monday's show seeing the highest paid audience in Monday Night Raw history , from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

WWE itself officially announced the record on its official website, where the company wrote:

Raw 30 was a huge hit

"Raw 30 was a defining night for the red brand and brought in the highest attendance in Monday Night Raw history.

A sold-out crowd at Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center witnessed Sami Zayn's trial in Tribal Court, an iconic moment shared between Bray Wyatt and The Undertaker, a Kurt Angle joining DX, the return of the Beast Brock Lesnar and much more.

Thank you WWE Universe for this unforgettable Raw XXX!" Before Gunther landed in the NXT rings on the US side, the Austrian athlete was called WALTER and was one of the prominent characters of NXT UK. The current Intercontinental Champion of Friday Night Smackdown, has been the champion of this British WWE brand for over two years, with his reign exceeding 800 days and becoming the longest in the last 35 years of all of WWE.

After holding his Universal Championship for well over 871 days, Roman Reigns entered the WWE golden register by right, surpassing Gunther and making the reign with the longest-lasting record of the last 35 years of WWE. Obviously, this amount of days does not appear to be an absolute record for WWE, with some of its Legends who have kept the titles even beyond 1000 days or beyond 5000, see Bruno Sammartino.

However, all of this makes us understand how in such an era, WWE has managed to build a character as important as its Tribal Chief, putting immense power in his hands. Wrestling veteran Vince Russo firmly believes that Vince McMahon fired Road Dogg from WWE to punish his son-in-law Triple H.

"So bro, when your son-in-law (Triple H) is on his deathbed, Vince McMahon takes over NXT, fires everybody Triple H hired, and does a whitewash of everything. Bro, you do that while your son-in-law is on his deathbed. Bro, to me, that was the punishment.

Remember Chris? Shortly thereafter, what did Stephanie do? Personal issues, 'I'm going to take some time off to be with my family."
