Fans at Manhattan Center upset with show; demand refund

Raw 25 is supposed to be one of the biggest shows of the year, with the WWE pumping a ton of money and promotion into the event. However, splitting a show between two venues is never easy, as they quickly learned.

While quite a few sites and fans have poked fun at the show, it’s not so funny for the paying customers. Fans in the Manhattan Center have been furious with their side of the show tonight. With a strange Undertaker promo and a quick match between Bray Wyatt and Woken Matt, not a lot has gone down there.

There have also been two cruiserweight matches, which didn’t do much to keep the crowd alive.  The second match, featuring Drew Gulak and Toney Nese in tag team action against Hideo Itami and Akira Tozawa ended after two minutes in a no contest.

This was when fans finally lost control.

An upset Manhattan Center chanted “bulls***” and “refund” until the Wyatt/Hardy match. Things calmed down a bit here, but fans were still upset even during the final segments of the night, chanting refund during the DX segment.

Shawn Michaels and Triple H did what they could to pump life back into the crowd, and with the addition of the rest of DX, Razor Ramon, the Balor Club and the Revival, WWE finally managed to get the fans back on their side.

However, a very quick match between the Club and the Revival seemed to kill the crowd yet again.

    Roman will be going after the World Title, it was the perfect opportunity to take it away from him and with credibility, what with his head smacking into a removed turnbuckle steel pin.

    Editing of the report would be helpful, an early morning perusal would make a person click on both links that are the SAME LINK. The show was boring either way, in person or watching at home. AND, the commentary from JR and King DID sound like it was straight out of a video game.

    The small crowd in the Manhattan center was more of a hindrance. Maybe they should have saved that for interview segments only, or done the whole show from there somehow.

    Are you kidding? Miz getting the belt back was great.

  • JC Bolden

    The show was definitely all over the place.

    It wasnt the worst raw ever as ive seen much worse. The only real negative about the show was putting the IC title on The Miz yet again. It was a good show besides the quick ending

  • CC

    They tried to fit too much into one show, and splitting it between two venues was a huge mistake.
    The fact that we got what amounted to a bunch of squash matches for current stars did not help.
    It was just patchy as hell as they could not seem to decide whether they wanted to continue feuds as normal or play up the nostalgia act.

    For how much they hyped it up, yeah it was pretty rough.
