WWE Raw onsite report: Seth Rollins played to the crowd, fan hopes The Shield doesn't change too much, Brooklyn return date and pre-sale password, Undertaker and Brock Lesnar went too long
Mar 25, 2014 - 12:40 PM


Dot Net reader Jon Coniglio attended the WWE Raw show in Brooklyn, New York on Monday and sent the following report.

-The arena was full capacity. They mentioned raw will be back in Brooklyn on October 6. The pre-sale password is WWERAW.

-It seemed there were so many flat matches/segments that the crowd just did not react to at all. Sin Cara beating Sandow in about a minute was brutal. Sandow wins Money in the Bank and now he's losing in less than a minute to a guy like Sin Cara. More people cheered for Sandow to be honest.

-Biggest pops of the night were definitely for Hulk Hogan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and The Shield. It seemed like it was The Shield's night.

-The biggest heat was Stephanie McMahon, Batista, and John Cena.

-People were pretty pissed that Daniel Bryan was not there. I'm not sure where WWE is going with this "injury" angle but it would have been nice to have him at least talk if he wasn't going to wrestle.

-Pretty funny at one point the men in the crowd started up with "Let's go Harper!" And all the women and kids shouted "Harper sucks!"

-Dolph Ziggler was definitely the fan favorite in the Fatal Four Way. Many people were annoyed around us with Christian winning. I think his character has run it's course.

-Sheamus got booed by a lot of people during his entrance. And people cheered "no!" instead of "Brogue" during his pre-Brogue Kick thing that he does in the corner. A heel turn should be on the horizon.

-Scott Hall got a very strong pop when he was announced.

-The casket segment with Undertaker and Brock Lesnar just went on too long. The Druid music kept playing as it appeared TV went to a commercial and Brock and Paul Heyman just stood there. It was very slow. Brock kicked the top of the casket a few times before it opened but waiting so long for it to open took the crowd right out of this segment. The show ended very flat with little reaction.

-After the show ended, Undertaker dropped to one knee and did his whole posing schtick. At one point he was just standing in the ring and a "Thank you, Taker" chant broke out in the arena.

-Another thing I noticed for the first time was that Seth Rollins was extremely babyface-like. He was clapping on the apron and trying to get the crowd into the match. It seemed just un-Shield like. I hope they don't change their characters too much now that they're faces. You never saw "Stone Cold" Steve Austin do that when he turned face.

-After Raw, The Shield fought The Wyatt's to a double DQ after about 5-7 minutes. Both teams started using chairs etc and The Shield cleared the ring as the Wyatt's retreated. The crowd was so drained at this time that about half the crowd left before the match was over.

-Between Superstars and Raw and a dark match, this was a very long night of wrestling that showed towards the end of the night, as many people were worn out. It wasn't the best Raw with all the filler matches but it had some good moments.
