I was at the Centre Bell yesterday and it was not full, but a decent crowd of around 13 000 was nonetheless on hand. It was nice to meet back with some old friends from my days in NCW. Sylvain Grenier of La Résistance fame and ToW was reportedly in attendance too.
Renee Young got a good pop when she came out.
Adam Rose overcame Titus O'Neil with some fancy legs-on-legs pin I don't recall ever seeing.
Yet another innovative move graced the next singles match when Tyson Kidd (accompanied with Natalya) reversed a Curtis Axel (w/ the ever popular Goldb... Ryback) hammerlock by entering the top gap between the ropes and exiting the bottom one. Alas, it wasn't enough and Axel got on top. Glad to see the singlet experiment is over for Curtis, it did fit his father better.
People were emotional for Jerry Lawler all night long for obvious reasons, the man survived a heart attack right here and it was his 1st time back.
For the life of me, I can't understand why JBL gets the pop he gets.
Still lots on CM Punk chants. Get over it, people.
Not much screwjob chants, about time...
Bret's pop live may have surpassed Lawler's.
The Wyatts and the Usos don't get old. People cheered for both equally.
The crowd badly wanted for Ziggy Ziggler to win, but... they got to sing along, and quite in tune, to Fandango's theme and dance instead.
Cesaro was great. It was priceless for us francophones to hear Claudio say even the French and the rest of Canada can't stand "les Québécois(Quebecers)" with a pretty decent local accent. He went on to tell us "Vous êtes pourris (you suck/you are rotten)". We got back at him during the match with a "TU es pourri! (YOU suck/are rotten)" chant. Hell, the chant was used back on Cena to our general delight in the main event.
After Raw ended, Cena and Reigns went on raising each other's arms to growing discontent and glee at John and Roman. Then, the Wyatts crashed the party, the crowd chanting for Y2J to show up and make it 3 on 3. It was not to be, the 2 heros prevailed anyway, with Cena soon leaving the ring for Roman who got cheered quite a lot on our way out. Best Raw I've ever been too, and I've seen my share of 'em. WWE returns at the Bell Center on Oct. 17th.
