Thanks to Craig Barton for sending this in:
HUGE pop for Wade Barrett. Big pops also for Vince, CM Punk, Ryback, Team Hell No, Sheamus and strangely the 3MB.
Most was heat for Vickie and Cena.
After the show Barrett, Ryback and Cena all hit their finishers on Rhodes and Barrett cut an unprepared promo (he seemed genuinely surprised and thrilled with the overwhelming support).
Overall a good night that me and my friends enjoyed.

The one thing I want to mention is Wade Barrett. First, he got a huge reaction when he was shown on the screen speaking to Paul Heyman. I don't know how it came off on tv, but he got a monster pop when he came out for his match with Brodus Clay.
After the cameras had gone off the air, Team Ziggler tried to attack Cena and Ryback. They fought off most of them which left Ryback, Cena and Cody Rhodes in the ring. At this point the crowd started a deafening 'we want Barrett' chant. Barrett then came out and delivered the souvenir to Cody Rhodes which got another huge pop. Cena got a mic and attempted to speak but got boo'ed every time his mouth went near the mic. He handed the mic to Wade Barrett (another huge pop) and walked off. Wade then went on to say he had been wrestling for 9 years and had never been cheered. He said he wasn't expecting the reaction he got and would have prepared a better speech if he had done.
Dolph Ziggler then came out and attempted to speak to Wade, but Cena came back in and hit him with the AA. He then grabbed the mic and said to Ziggler that Wade is an Englishman who has come home so he should have some damn manners as this is his time. He then said he would stand outside the ring in case anyone tried interrupting again and then passed the mic back to Barrett. Barrett then went on to say even though he never really liked cena that was a good call he just made. He then said that he has wrestled all over the world, but would always wear the union jack on his trunks and the poppy in his heart (which made the crowd explode). He then said he would go on to kick the ginger haired Irishman's arse on Wednesday. Huge cheers as he left the arena.
This gave us a glimpse of what Barrett would be like as a face, which I think will happen sometime. Very interesting as I don't think that the people in the back expected that type or reaction for Barrett, so I think the ending was just done on the fly due to our reaction.
