    unlike american audiences, canadian and moreso uk fans don’t follow the trend of cheering and booing who they’re supposed to. the performers like it because it’s really unpredictable for them, they hear something different and sometimes leads to a better atmosphere and event.

    it’s a shame that they edited that so much, because i’ve been to previous uk events and the fans are always up for it, and usually there’ll be friendly competition between fans as to who can come up with a chant that’ll either be totaly unexpected or one that’ll make the wrestlers crack up and laugh when they shouldn’t.

    who’s the dumbass? the rest of the free world for making the most of an event and having fun by making the crowd just as much a part of the show….. or you, for sitting through hour upon hour of cena and orton and not doing anything about it because you do what you’re told?

    Lets see—–You were chanting for Ricardo? Dumbasses no wonder you were edited.

    also just finished watching you can see me and my friend bowing down to the maxim magazine cover but we did that to jerry lawler when he walked out!

    to be fair We we’re more bothered about giving Cena heat. Awesome truth did actually get some cheers. with the exception of rider.

    Cena was a little cry baby by the end. poor dolph got passed between cena and punk like a ragdoll as well which was funny.

    Also the Ricardo chants were edited out as well.

    the boos for cena were also heavily edited i was there and cena could barely be heard over boos which did not come across on tv and also when revealing his partner the crowd was chanting for foley which was edited out of tv

    i went to the event and basically whenever wwe come to the uk they edit out a lot of the reactions to make the UK look like a lesser audience to americans, the ending was reshot 3 times because john cena messed up, john cena also stormed out of the dark main event because he got booed, cm punk ended up hitting the attitude adjustment to ziggler to end the show

    Does that explain why the crowd did not react or give heat to the Awesome Truth for winning? It would make sense.

    Could tell the main event ending was re-shot. Looked very chopped up
