Thanks to Robert Woodward, Jr. for sending this in:
I just wanted to write in and pretty much give a slight re-cap of last night:
It felt like this was the first time that MANY of the people in the crowd was at their first WWE RAW event. A lot of them had NO IDEA you couldn’t hear the announcers live. That killed the crowds buzz a couple times… another thing to note, our crowd was EXTREMELY loud last night and watching it on TV it comes off as very dull. I wonder if WWE lowers the crowd? Speaking of crowd, I wonder why WWE thinks they still need to use audience plants? I was sitting in one of the club boxes and I saw a guy walk out of the Gorilla position and stand right by the whole camera command area on the floor and he started a "Randy Orton" chant, stayed a couple seconds and then walked to the back again. Either way, the crowd was Hot really all night except for when they were obviously confused at being at a LIVE Raw event. I’m glad my "Daniel Bryan" chant made it on to TV during the Divas match.
And speaking of Daniel Bryan, the security for the event told me that YES they are confiscating any and ALL signs that have to deal with "Daniel Bryan, Bryan Danielson, The American Dragon, etc." … And just for fun, after the show went off the air, Sheamus came out and told John Cena he wants to fight so, they had a WWE Championship match. It was pretty good, PRO Cena crowd all the way. Nexus came in and obviously took out Cena, Bourne came in to help, then Rany’s music hit and the entire Raw locker room spilled out, chased Nexus away and then John and Randy got into the ring and posed together for a couple minutes… Randy was noticeably irked for some reason by the way… All around great show. The crowd was a lot louder than they seemed to be on TV… Biggest pop of the night was when Randy was tagged in during the televised main event, the 2nd biggest was when Cena made his first appearance…. Biggest heat was Sheamus followed by Chris Jericho who made fun of Philly during a commercial break after their intros were done.
Have a news tip? Attended an event and want to send a live report?
