Honestly, I can’t even rank the pops. The crowd was electric all night. Even when it was quiet in the arena, it was still full of electricity.
Sign of the night:
I feel the need to note this. Before the PPV, I found myself sitting next to a couple of kids, aged probably about 12. I had my replica World heavyweight belt with me, so I let them hold it and check it out. They were full of excitement, talking about wrestling. One of them gave me his history of Evolution. As I was sitting in the arena, there was a little girl 2 seats over from me, probably 6 or 7… and a small boy about the same age the row in front of us. for a little bit, I was able to remember what it was like being young and completely buying everything about pro-wrestling. Before the internet, before I knew what I know now. This little girl, she jumped out of her seat and was jumping around like crazy for a Lashley kick-out. it really made me smile, and if I had seen the father after the show, I would have thanked him for that. No matter how ling I’ve watched wrestling, no matter what I know…it’s about the kids. they are the ones that can still enjoy the magic and not be the doubting “fans” that many my age have become.
Overall, a great show live. especially for my first PPV.
