Here on the WestCoast Raw starts at 6:00 and ends at 8:05. but what are those extra 5 minutes for? Why doesnt it just end at 8:00 exactly.































Is this to compete with other shows? so that you are 5 minutes late to your next show, and it messes up that companys ratings? or is this something alse?

I, too, live on the west coast. Those extra five minutes are just to avoid over run. It makes sure that the show doesn't end right before the main event gets to finish. Due to RAW being the flagship show and having more things going on than Smackdown!, over run used to happen a lot. Ever since the five minutes were added to the end, it's a lot less common.

Those extra 5 minutes are for either John Cena or Randy Orton to keep beating the hell outta of their opponant, even after they WIN the match!
