For countless reasons, things would be better if we were in a situation where it'd be healthy to have fans in the crowd, and not the Thunderdome stuff.
I was thinking, has it been easier for Roman to work as a heel due to a lack of audience. Obviously, he was already getting boos, but his heel work has been so superb, surely he would be getting significant pops as well.
Yeah, people would probably start turning onto his side because he's dominant and awesome at the moment, but really that's a win-win situation because they want to get there with him again anyway. People booing him because he's an asshole? GREAT! People cheering him because he's the alpha dog and clearly the #1 star in the promotion! GREAT!
