On-Site Report from 6/17 WWE Raw in Grand Rapids, MI

Mike Killam

Thanks to Wrestlezone reader Bryan Whit for sending in the following, detailed live report from Monday Night Raw in Grand Rapids, MI this week. 

-Me, my wife and little brother and sister got to [Grand Rapids] at 4. We had time to hang around and see the tour busses come in. Y2J was the only one who signed a few autographs. When he came over to us, my wife told him "she loved him more than me" he looked at her smiled and said "thank you". That made her whole night. It's cool to see some guys do a little exrta before the show.

-I don't know if this happens all the time now but there was a Fruity Pebbles experience outside the arena. You got a free bowl and there was some games and you could get your picture taken with a [John] Cena image.

Monday Night Raw

-WWE did a good job of making us hate del Rio by showing us how he won the belt before the show started. There are still some people who like del Rio. If I was him I'd do the same thing. The place exploded when Punk came out! Good promo as always.

-Vicky Gurrero brought back WWE's #1 indy talent Christian. I say that because only green indy guys clap for themselves during a match. The live crowed ate it up though. I still don't like Christian.

-I popped when Codey Rhodes and Sandow came out. The crowed popped hard for Shaemus. It was a very good match. I thought Sheamus whould have all the offence but Rhodes and Sandow did a good job with their heat.

-With Orton and Bryan I thought it was strange how they stopped the match. The crowd was hot all the way until the end. To me Bryan looked like he hurt his wrist and arm???
