Hey my name is Paul, and I wanted to give you guys a quick report from a fans point of view from the first ever Hell In A Cell PPV tonight. Overall, the arena filled in very well, after a very empty arena just 10 minutes before the PPV. There were a good 40 or 50 seats that went untouched on the hard camera side. Matt Hardy defeated Mike Knox, in a borderline boring match. After that we wnet on the air only to find out that the Undertaker and CM Punk match would open the show. I was surprised on why they opened, but just found the article about the incident Punk was in on the overseas tour. Interesting what happened, but we’ll find out in the next few days.
After that the PPV flowed pretty well, there wasn’t alot of the whole entertainment portion tonight, which was refreshing. Like I said the show flowed well, untilllllll the Diva’s title match. U could hear a pin drop during that match and I sat in section 105, and I screamed boring multiple times, which might have been picked up all across the arena lol. Other than that and the R-Truth and Drew Mcintyre match drawing no crowd reaction (why that match made the show I DON"T KNOW) I enjoyed the show.
The tag title match had a hot crowd, with a good amount of love for Jericho and Show going around. But what had me on the edge of my seat was the Cena and orton match. Just to see the look of dissapointment and sadness on these little kids faces when cena got punted, was absolutely awesome!! The crowd was veryy pro Orton, and it seemed as if Cena was the hell in the match. I know for fact I was marking out when Orton won. It felt like the late 90’s all over again. Kids crying, and girls with their faces in their hands made my night.
On to the main event, the match seemed to drag on but I thought was great. The crowd was into this one alot, and it was just as loud as it was from the opening bell. After the show seemed to go of the air, a stretcher was brought out for Cody, and Ted acted like it was is wife or mother on that, it almost looked like he was about to cry. He also shoved one of the refs pretty freakin hard into the security wall, as they were wheeling Cody away. I thought that weas hilarious.
So the first show at Prudential Center I thought was pretty damn good, I as well as all the other Randy Orton fans, left very happy im assuming, and looking foward for when they come back to the Metro area (Oh wait, thats Raw on NOV 16th, which I’ll be at so expect another live report)
