WWE Raw in East Rutherford, NJ
Report from Dot Net readers Ross Luppino and girlfriend Stephanie Ann.

We arrived at around 6:45 and got into the arena around 7:00. We wanted to purchase an adult small CM Punk t-shirt. We waited in line only to have the attendant tell us the smallest sizes they have are adult mediums, which was kind of surprising.

Our seats were a few rows up from the ring. Surprisingly the arena wasn't sold out.

The crowd was hot for the opening match. Sin Cara and Rey are fun to watch in person, but I can't say I'm disappointed with Rhodes Scholars winning.

John Cena came out to a mix of boos and cheers and cut a promo that made no sense in my mind. It's amazing how they have de-valued the WWE Championship, and a bunch of us in my section were curious as to why Cena would get the "Feed Me More" chants going. Punk's music interfered and he entered to a mix of boos and cheers as well. Heyman is awesome in person, his body language alone is worth watching.

I was waiting for a divas match, surprisingly, there wasn't one. Thank goodness.

Alberto Del Rio came out for his match and drove out a beautiful car (then they went to commercial I believe) and Del Rio began playing and talking with the crowd (not very heel like). Del Rio was blasting the engine, as the crowd chanted "One more time" and Del Rio did it again. After his match he walked by us and again was very friendly and not heel-like.

Overall the show was great, and Ryback going over Punk at the end had the crowd popping!

Biggest Pops:
1.) Ryback
2.) Kofi
3.) Vince

Biggest Boos:
1.) CM Punk
2.) Vicki
3.) Heyman
