1. Monday Night Raw’s first episode - Jan. 11, 1993
Raw's rise to prominence began in where else but New York City, home to many of WWE's most historic events dating back to the early 1960s. The premiere edition, which took place at the Grand Ballroom of the Manhattan Center, lasted one hour and broke new ground as it was the first WWE TV show to be broadcast live, unlike previous shows that were taped with voiced over commentary.

The live crowd and viewers on USA Network enjoyed a star-studded show that included appearances by WWE Legends Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker and "Macho Man" Randy Savage, who co-hosted the show with Mr. McMahon. But it was the atmosphere that really set the first episode apart as the start of something truly one of a kind. On this Monday night, WWE fans delivered a rowdy, electric energy that would become the lifeblood of many Raws to come.
