Zack RyderThanks to Dimitri Tsoumparas for sending this in:

Here are several notes from RAW tonight from Hershey, Pennsylvania:

– Arena was nearly sold out, with just a few open seats up in the cheap seats.

– There was major confusion as to why Jonah Hill was not on RAW tonight despite being advertised.

– Biggest Pops: CM Punk, Zack Ryder, Randy Orton.

– Biggest Heat: Alberto Del Rio, The Miz, R-Truth, John Laurinaitis.

– Hershey is not home to many members of the Cenation, and only about 40% of the audience actually cheered for Cena, the remaining were against him.

– Throughout the show, "We want Ryder" chants broke out, even in the parking lot before fans were even in the arena.

– The Dark Match Main Event of the evening was John Cena, Randy Orton, and Big Show Vs. The Miz, Dolph Ziggler, and Jack Swagger. Team Cena got the win.

– The overall feeling by most of the fans around me was disappointment coming off a big Pay Per View event many expected a much better show but instead complained about the Match Card.
