Live Notes & Off-Air Notes From WWE’s “The Bash” PPV

Matt Boone

WWE Les Shifler of sent along the following:

I estimated the crowd at 14,000, with partial of the upper deck tarped off; capacity is 17,100. It was total bullshit that they did not let the crowd into the place until 4; there were about two thousand people waiting to get in at 103 degree heat; we were really pissed off! They could have at least let us in at 3:30, since the parking lot opened at 3:00. Linda McMahon will get an email from me. Security says it was the WWE’s fault, and not the Maloofs (the Sacramento Kings owners).

Total no heat/pops for Michelle McCool and for C.M. Punk……it was really silent!

Big pops for Hunter, John Cena, Rey Mysterio, and Melina.

I don’t think that the Punk match made him a heel, not quite yet. He is going to have to do something really bad.

I don’t think that I would have paid for the PPV based on my experience; it could have been a lot better. Especially since they teased Ted DiBiase breaking up with Randy Orton, yet Hunter got no help, and the final match just did not do it for me, even with Randy winning.

I was hoping that Vince McMahon would come out and equalize Legacy, then make it a halfway fair fight…then Randy could have still won.
