• WWF Was Offered Millions Of Dollars To Move RAW To Another Week Day
During a recent interview with WrestlingInc, Ruthless Aggression Era Veteran Charlie Haas revealed that the National Football League (NFL) offered Vince McMahon millions of dollars to get him to move his flagship show RAW off Mondays to another week day.
The NFL always saw WWF/WWE Monday Night RAW as competition to their ‘Monday Night Football’ show.
Here’s what the former Team Angle member said:
“It was so popular that the NFL was going to pay WWF money just to move Monday Night RAW away so the ratings for the NFL and Monday Night Football would go back up.
This is before Nitro got launched.
The NFL was plummeting in the ratings because RAW was hot, really.
They offered them a couple million to move it to another night, and they said no.”
