RAW's 900th Episode Special + Twitter Trend

Tonight is WWE's RAW 900th Episode Celebration! Below are some details of the show + other information & features. And a new Twitter trend I want to start...

It’s the longest-running weekly episodic television series in U.S. history. It has brought iconic Superstars such as Bret "Hit Man" Hart, Shawn Michaels, “Stone Cold" Steve Austin, The Rock and John Cena into millions of homes each week. And on Aug. 30, 2010, it celebrates an unprecedented sports-entertainment milestone – its historic 900th episode.

Now airing in more than 145 countries and reaching half a billion households worldwide, few would imagine that Monday Night Raw came from humble beginnings, emanating from a small New York City theater when it debuted on Jan. 11, 1993. But through its explosive combination of high-octane action, memorable matches, shocking moments and sensational Superstars, Raw has remained Monday night’s most exciting show throughout its 17-and-a-half year history.

To help offer some perspective on how much ground Raw has covered, offers up the following (semi) scientifically-calculated facts and figures regarding what 900 episodes works out to. Drag your mouse over the image below to find out all the numbers, and be sure to tune in to the monumental 900th episode of Raw – featuring Superstars from both Raw and SmackDown – on Monday, Aug. 30, at 9/8 CT.
