Talking Smack is a half an hour WWE Network Talk show that takes place after Smackdown Live. It is hosted by Renee Young and Smackdown Live General Manager, Daniel Bryan, in which they talk all things Smackdown Live and also interview the talent, which has helped progress character development on the show immensely.
It is all kayfabe, but it has come to be one of the most critically acclaimed shows on the Network, getting praise week after week. Many wondered if Raw was going to get its own equivalent of Talking Smack, and it looks like those questions have been answered.
According to WWE Network News, the talk show titled Raw Talk will start off this Sunday after Hell In A Cell. While it has not been officially announced on the Network schedule itself, WWE.com seems to confirm that it’s a done deal. It is likely because it will air in between the 10:30 PM EST and 11 PM EST hour(8:30 AM IST).
It is not specified as to whether Renee Young will be hosting, or who will be co-hosting, but it will be interesting to see how it is dealt with. Talking Smack has seen tremendous success because Smackdown Live has only two hours and the unique show as mentioned helps a lot with character development.
It is not known how well Raw Talk will do compared to its blue counterpart, as the three-hour format of Raw can be quite exhausting on its own.
Technically speaking, there has been no confirmation as to whether it will be a weekly post-Raw show or just exclusive for PPVs, but it is definitely safe to assume it’s going to be a weekly show looking at the name. Would you like a talk show co-hosted by Renee Young and Mick Foley?
