Thanks to Jeff for sending this in:
Hey guys i figured I’d send in some more detailed notes about raw last night…. Before the Morrison/Truth vs Rhodes/Mcintyre match… Truth played to the crowd saying " what’s up" over again and he had Morrison imitate Drew Mcintyre’s accent which wasnt that bad and they also danced in the ring….After the Sheamus/Edge promo…Sheamus went to the back and Edge came down to the ring and talked to the crowd ( like a face mind you) and showed his favorite Raw moment which was when he Pinned RVD for the title back in July 2007… The dark match after raw wasnt that bad the cage is wicked flimsy and it actually reminded me of the cages back in the day i would buy with my wrestling ring.. The fans were disappointed that zero stars from the past showed up as a lot of fans were complaining walking out, i even had an usher come up to me and say.. " wow this was really boring. i cant believe they get so many people to attend"
Biggest Pops in no particular order
John Cena (although there were some boos mixed in)
Jack Swagger (mainly for his Johnny Damon comment)
Funny story after Raw ended… Fans always gather outside near the parking lot to see the wrestlers.. Now we cant get into the lot but they literally drive between the groups of fans waiting… So MVP came over to us and was shaking fans hands ( the bars in the gates are wide enough that you can fit your arm through) and someone asked him " when are you going to be world champ and he said. " Man i dont write the show, im to opinionated" and then some lady asked him to sign her poster and as she was unrolling it he noticed it was a John Cena poster and he said " i aint signing no John Cena poster" He said it sorta tongue and cheek i didnt take no malice towards it but it was very funny.
