The Bradley Center was pretty well attended, a Smackdown show about a year ago or so had the entire upper section tarped off, and part of the hard camera side. Monday night only about half of the upper section was tarped off, and most of the seats were filled.
1. John Cena
2. Randy Orton
3. Jerry “The King” Lawler
4. R-Truth….before he called us “Green Bay”
5. John Morrison
1. Vickie Guerrero…..BY FAR
2. CM Punk
4. The Miz
5. Alberto Del Rio
The main event dark match after the show (Orton and Cena vs. CM Punk and Miz with Michael Cole as the referee) was a decent length match, with an injured Randy Orton coming to the ring mid match to make the save for Cena. CM Punk did a great job once again showing he’s an amazing heel. His mannerisms during the match, playing up the crowd really got some heat.
I’m not sure how it came across on TV, but Cole was playing along with the crowd during the “Milwaukee” chant after R-Truth’s error. The King mentioned Milwaukee later that night, as did Punk during a commercial, and Cena in his promo. Funny though, because Cena mentioning Pabst is a bit of a sore spot, since they left Milwaukee several years ago.
Overall a fun show, and the merchandise stands were busy before, during, and after the show.
