By Ryan Clark | October 22, 2008
Even though it's actually not the 800th edition of Raw, as seen on last night's show, WWE is hyping the three-hour show set to take place on November 3rd as the "Record-Breaking 800th Episode Celebration" anyway. Of course, last month WWE made note of the 800th episode of Raw taking place on September 22. They even had the likes of Lilian Garcia, Jim Ross, and Jerry Lawler write about Raw in 800 words in commentaries on WWE.com regarding the 800th episode. The show was your typical episode of Raw, but the "800th episode" tagline was mentioned a lot on commentary during the show. During the September 22 show, they displayed a "Did You Know" graphic twice noting the episode as "Raw's historic 800th show," which you can a screencap of at http://i33.pic-share.info/2zxqnat.jpg According to the Raw episode guide on ShareTV.org -- which doesn't appear to have any discrepancies -- the true 800th edition of Raw actually took place on September 1, 2008. The November 3rd show will actually be the 809th edition of WWE Raw.
