Associated Press writer Dan Gelston wrote a piece that is being picked up nationally regarding the WWE Raw 20th Anniversary show. "There's nothing on TV quite like the promotion's flagship show, the one that rocketed Austin and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson into stardom, shook the wresting industry out of its staid Saturday morning ways, and filled highlight reels for 20 years with over-the-top personalities, eye-popping feats, total silliness, outrageous story lines, and memorable matches — with so much more yet to come."

Powell's POV: The story includes quotes from John Cena, C.M. Punk, Jerry Lawler, Mick Foley, and others. Paul Heyman revealed when he realized wrestling moved into a new era. "We were editing the ECW television show. We had 'Nitro' on one monitor and 'Raw,' on the other," Heyman said. "When I saw Steve (confront) Mike Tyson, I realized we have entered into a new era and Steve Austin is leading the way."
