Breaking news, Cagesiders, and I'll let you determine whether or not it's good.

As tweeted by John Cena, World Wrestling Entertainment's (WWE) flagship program, Monday Night Raw, will be moving to three hours starting with episode number 1,000 on July 23, 2012.

Here's a bit from the WWE.com article:

WWE is proud to celebrate this historic milestone with our partners at USA Network," WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon said. "Our new three-hour Raw represents the next generation in interactive television where our fans won't just watch the show, they will help create it."

Starting with the historic 1,000th episode of Raw on July 23, The WWE Universe will have new ways to get involved in the show through WWE.com and social media by deciding matches, stipulations, Superstar development and more.

"The WWE Universe is one of the most socially active and passionate fan bases in all of television," Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel, co-presidents USA Network, said. "The powerful three-hour block of live TV truly makes USA the year-round destination for young male viewers on Monday nights."
