The arena was packed...even the upper sections were not tarped off and seemed full. I would put attendance at 99.99% full.
Merchandise stands were packed and the line for your photo on a green screen with a WWE Superstar with you holding the belt for $20 had a lot of people forking over their money.
The old school look attention to detail was awesome. From the announce table, the old metal ring guards and entrance had that old school feel.
Usos vs. Rhodes Scholars who reunited for the "old school theme". Rhodes Scholars won.
Layla (loooong blonde hair= extensions) vs. Tamina was a great match with Tamika doing all the power moves but Layla getting a sloppy win.
In Ryback's match, when he was knocked out of the ring he hit his head head on the metal barricade really hard. He was loopy when he stood up. They rushed to fix the barricade when he moved away from it.
The Rock was way over with the crowd, When he came out he looked to the people sitting on the sides and behind the TitanTron and was shocked at how many people were there. He looked up to the upper/cheap seats and smiled. I have been to numerous concerts and sporting events at the arena and Rock received the loudest ovation that I can recall.
The crowd was not into Jack Swagger at all. People around me were heard saying "bathroom break time" Security took numerous signs that had Swagger DUI or variations. One guy behind me had "Swagger 4:20 I just had a DUI". (security took it) There were also a lot of DUI chants.
What a waste of Dusty Rhodes and Sgt. Slaughter.
The Mae Young birthday tribute was too short. I noticed afterwards, the Divas were helping her to the back....that was a nice touch.
After Raw went off the air, The Shield (way over) attacked the Big Show and laid him out with the triple power bomb. This brought out Cena, Ryback and Sheamus for a six man match. Shield was disqualified for using the chair and then Cena and Ryback used their finishers.
The "Why the hell are they here Silence"
Swagger (no one cared...crickets)
Fandango (no one cared...crickets)
