Here are some notes from Raw last night:
– Reaction for Batista was mixed – but more cheers than boos
– Crowd was very hot for CM Punk
– When HBK’s music hit, the crowd erupted, only to find out it was Lance Cade
– After the match and when they went to commercial, Cade got on the mic and told everyone to shut the hell up. Boos started pouring in, and told us that if we can’t respect them, they are leaving. They left the ring, then came back out to Jericho’s music a few minutes later.
– D’Lo Brown didn’t get much of a reaction – maybe no one really knew who he was? I thought he would get a bigger pop.
– Santino is hilarious
After Raw went off the air:
Cena and Batista stare each other down, and Batista leaves. Cena gets on the mic and says that this is the part where he should apologize for hitting Batista, but he’s not going to because if it’s the “Punch heard ’round the world” that’s going to set up a match between him and Batista for the first time ever, then he’s never going to apologize. It definitely sounded like a match between them is coming at Summerslam.
He then thanked the crowd, hugged his father, and threw a bunch of stuff he was wearing into the crowd.
