The WWE Experience, is a television program produced by WWE, Inc. which recaps events taking place on WWE Raw, and WWE SmackDown that started in May 2004.

History

The show was originally hosted by Todd Grisham and Ivory. The setting was outdoors and usually around New York City. When WWE programming moved to the USA Network during September 2005, The WWE Experience was canceled in America to later be replaced with WWE A.M. RAW, but the show continued to be produced for the overseas audience. The filming was moved to the WWE studios in Stamford, Connecticut under the excuse that Grisham hated to film in the rain. Ivory was released from WWE a few weeks before the cancellation of the show in the US. In July 2006, Todd Grisham was replaced as host by Josh Mathews. On air, Matthews reportedly said, "No reason, Todd's gone, [Josh is] here, deal with it". After Josh Mathews became a commentator on ECW, he was replaced by Jack Korpela.
