Crowd wise, it was not a sell out. There were some tarped off areas on the balcony above nose bleed section. They were very small, almost unnoticeable but still, there was tarps. Kind of scary considering almost every Raw if not every RAW has been a sellout in Chicago.
One other thing I noticed was the fact that the entrance was SO close to the ring. I've never seen that at a taping before. There was only 7 or 8 rows of people between the ring and the entrance set.
After Raw went off the air, Punk came out. Did the yes chant with Daniel Bryan. He got a massive pop. Someone threw a White Sox hoodie at him but he threw it back laughing in a good moment with the crowd. Then someone threw a Blackhawks jersey inside the ring and Punk wore it to a much better reaction from the crowd. Ryback and Axel came back out to get dismembered by Punk after Jerry Lawler threw a kendo stick to Punk. Punk chaired Ryback and hit the GTS on Axel.
Most Over in order
1. CM Punk
2. Daniel Bryan
3. Dolph Ziggler
5. Bray Wyatt (although it's really disappointing that the lights don't go completely out for their entrance, for some reason you could see them come down the ramp in the dark, I don't know why, all the lights in the arena seemed to have been off, maybe it was the curtains from the hallways in, but I remember when Kane and Undertaker had lights off moments before, you would never be able to see anything).
1. Stephanie McMahon (especially the 2nd time she came out.. it was tiring)
3. Del Rio
