– Thanks to Jason for the following:
I was at Raw tonight in Pittsburgh and I thought I would send along a few notes from the show.
The crowd was hot all night, although they seemed bored with the Kane segments on the TitanTron. Some of those backstage segments just don’t work well with a live crowd.
Before the show, Tyson Tomko made a surprise return to WWE and beat Paul Burchill in a dark match. Where’s Burchill and Katie Lea been?
They also replayed the whole HBK segment from last night’s PPV which seemed to take some of the momentum out of the live crowd, although JBL got good heat after they aired the promo.
Crowd went nuts when Cena came out to attack Legacy and help Batista. Batista was over pretty well also.
All in all it was a very fun show, with some downtime due to a lot of backstage stuff. They advertised a main event of Chris Jericho vs John Cena in a street fight, but it wasn’t on the show. Not sure if it happened after the show bc me and my wife left after the main event.
1. John Cena
3. CM Punk
4. Rey Mysterio
1. Chris Jericho
3. Randy Orton punting Batista
Deuce, or whatever his new name is, got next to no reaction. Maybe people didn’t know who he is?
