Off-Air Live Notes From Last Night’s Double-Raw Taping

Matt Boone

Sidney Stokes and PWInsider.com wrote the following report …
 
The dark match battle royal main event was all members of the six pack challenge, plus Morrison and R Truth vs Nexus vs Smackdown: Big Show, "Dashing Cody Rhodes" Rey Mysterio, CM Punk, Jack Swagger and Kofi.   It got down to Cena, Punk, and Edge…they ganged up on Cena but Cena threw punk into Edge and Edge was out…then Cena eliminated Punk.  
 
Justin Roberts wished us all safe travels.
 
So the place had a lot of people there but there were a LOT of seats unsold…luckily it was on the side the main camera was so they couldn’t be seen. 
 
The live show had a lot of cheers and jeers.
 
Biggest Pops (in no particular order)
Randy Orton (ok…he had the biggest…by far)
Bret Hart
Daniel Bryan
John Cena
R-Truth 
Edge and Jericho had a pretty good amount of fan support. WWE might have to work to make them hated again.
 
Biggest Heat:
Nexus
The Miz
Heath Slater (mainly due to the Wendy’s comment by Cena early on)
Michael Cole whenever he spoke…and especially when he said Bret would not be wrestling and not be on Raw and when the GM gave his opinion of Bret.
 
The second taping was VERY QUIET
 
I think WWE is going to have to put a few "sound effects" in before it airs.
 
Biggest Pops:
Randy Orton
Daniel Bryan
John Cena
Melina
The Big Show (when he came out in the dark match)
 
Biggest Heat:
Sheamus 
The Miz
Ted DiBiase (and not really in a good way) 
Jillian
Laycool
 
People started leaving at various points but a lot after the John Cena vs Miz, right before the Randy Orton vs Morrison vs DiBiase match. 
 
The crowd was oddly dead.  There were a few of us that were really excited the whole time…but a few people could only do so much.
