The stars of the WWE will be spreading some serious holiday cheer on Christmas night and New Year’s Day as Raw is set to air live for the first time ever on both holidays.

WWE Superstars work hard all year long, and normally they get a little bit of a break around the holiday season, but that won’t be the case this time around. WWE confirmed that Raw will air live for the first time on Christmas night and New Year’s Day with the following announcement which was posted on WWE.com:

“Prepare to celebrate the holidays with WWE this year as Raw broadcasts LIVE on Christmas night, Dec. 25, and New Year’s Day, Jan. 1. This marks the first time that WWE will present Monday night’s hottest show live on the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. These unprecedented broadcasts aim to best serve you, the WWE Universe, during the holiday season. Additionally, SmackDown will be broadcast live on Dec. 26 and Jan. 2. Deck the halls and ring in the New Year with Monday Night Raw, live on Dec. 25 and Jan. 1 on USA Network.”

  1. this quite frankly is the dumbest decision that WWE has ever made in regards to booking dates. why would you take the only days that your talent, and staff gets a holiday break with there families to work? Both you and the USA Network should be ashamed of yourselves!
