Dot Net Member Don Murphy attended the WWE Raw 25 event in Brooklyn, New York at Barclays Center and passed along the following report.
-There was a loud CM Punk chant when Stephanie McMahon and Shane McMahon came out just prior to the show going on the air. It was hard to figure out what Stephanie was going to do since there was no one for her to emasculate.
-It felt like after the crowd lost some steam after the Steve Austin segment. There were loud boos at Barclays Center when DX and Undertaker were at Manhattan Center instead. They should have been more up front with who was going to be where.
-The current WWE stars didn’t get much of a pop, aside from The Miz and Elias.
-The crowd was pretty dead during women’s match aside from Asuka’s spot at the end. Aside from that spot, I forgot the Royal Rumble is on Sunday because there was no build.
-There was one beachball in the crowd.
-We were confused as to why the legends were out for the closing segment as Kurt Angle never explained it.
-Good show, not a great show.
