Thanks to Chris Wahlberg for sending in the following live report:
Just a few interesting notes if you could not see them on the televised PPV. I took my kids to the live event at the Verizon Center. Here is what you may not have been able to see or hear;
- As Batista was destroying Mysterio, the crowd went crazy in favor of Batista, chanting "Batista, Batista over and over again as he repeatedly powerbombed him, and then they cheered lowdly when he got the chair. I know he is the hometown guy, but I just thought that was odd given Mysterios strong fan base. Go figure ?
- Cena (as usual) practically got booed out of the building the whole night. Fans did have a little battle at one point where a small group were chanting "We love Cena", but it quickly got drowned out by the "Cena sucks" chants that were deafening.. It was quite funny. (my kid was pissed as he is a big Cena fan)
- Santino vs. Chavo was the dark match. Santino was comical as always.....
- Crowd was completely stunned and silent almost when HBK superkicked HHH at the start of the main event. Nobody knew how to react, it was quite suprising.
Dx, Undertaker, and Kofi Kinston seemed to get the loudest pop from the crowd. Loudest boos came for Cena, Orton, Miz and Jericho.
