The initial logo for the wrestling show was introduced in 1993 when the program was launched under the name WWF Monday Night Raw. The logo was composed of a stylized enlarged “RAW” inscription with its letters’ contours slightly torn and the bodied colored red and black, the “Monday Night” lettering above it, executed in black sans-serif and set on a white background, and a rectangular banner on the top of the emblem, repeating the color and style of the “RAW” line. On the horizontally stretched red banner, there was a stylized “WWF” monogram, where one white “W” was placed on the other and both had their right bars stretched to the right, forming the letter “F”.
