Notes from Raw… LIVE!

> Hey Scott–
>
> I attended Monday night's show (seated on the aisle that Reigns came down, so you can rest assured I gave him what for, sir!) and I'm surprised we don't have a rant up yet, but some notes for the BoD from the live experience:
>
> 1. The crowd noise was WAY muted on the broadcast, as we were a hell of a lot hotter than that. But since we were chanting a lot of stuff that doesn't tow company line, I guess that's expected.
>
> 2. Michael Cole being murdered does indeed equal ratings, and it equals amazing crowd pops as well. Brock is now the supreme babyface of the company.
>
> 3. During the commercial break in the Diva's match, there was a mind-numbingly bad rest hold sequence, which the crowd completely turned on, leading to the following classy chants, "You suck Cena", "You suck Bryan", "You suck Uso", "You suck Kidd", and "You suck Punk." Sadly, the crowd didn't know who Paige has ever dated, so no chants were offered her way.
>
> 4. The anti-Cena stuff was deafening. Easily a 80-20 split against him, at least.
>
> 5. In the main event, the crowd literally plowed through chants for the entire NXT roster before going into the wave. Then congratulated itself with a chant of "We are awesome."
>
> 6. And in possibly the best moment of the night, Lillian Garcia is out plugging tickets for RAW's return in August, which prompts the crowd to chant, "We don't live here!"
>
> Cheers! Paige is dating Sami Zayn as of last scuttlebutt, FYI.
