WWE Raw (also advertised as WWE Monday Night Raw) is a professional wrestling television program that currently airs on the USA Network in the United States and originally debuted in August 2005. Since its launch in 2005, Raw continues to air on Monday nights. Raw is generally seen as the company's flagship program due to its prolific history, high ratings, weekly three-hour live format, and emphasis on pay-per-views.
Since its first episode, WWE Raw has been broadcast live from 203 different arenas, in 169 cities and towns, in ten different nations (the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Afghanistan, Iraq, South Africa, Germany, Japan, Italy and Mexico). There have been 287 episodes from 2005 to 2013.
"Burn it to the Ground" by Nickelback served as the official theme song for Raw from 2009 to 2015. Currently "Enemies" by Shinedown serves as the theme song for Raw. Beginning in August 2016, Raw debuted a brand new logo, set and graphics and theme song.
