I was at Raw last night & wanted to pass off a few notes:
Crowd was really good in terms of involvement in the show. Building was probably about 85% full. The top sections on the camera side were tarped off and most of the empty seats were on that side.
Crowd was really hot for the main event & rightfully so. Most weren't expecting a title change so the pop was insane when Cody/Goldust won.
Dark Match Main Event saw Daniel Bryan beat Orton with the flying knee.
In a funny segment after the match, Bryan was asking the crowd if they wanted to see an RKO. Reason being that Orton was asking the crowd, during the dark match, if they wanted to see one. So Daniel took a poll of the crowd asking if they wanted to see an RKO & most were chanting YES. So he asked referee Chad Patton if he wanted to see one, and he chanted Yes, so Bryan hit Patton with one of the worst RKO's anyone has ever seen! Then he thanked us for coming & apologized for hitting the worst RKO in the history of wrestling.
Not sure how the show came off on TV, but live the first 2 hours were a little slow, but really picked up with the last two matches.
