Live News and Notes from Last Night’s RAW in Oakland

– Thanks to Brian Berry for these live notes from last night’s RAW in Oakland:

The Oracle Arena in Oakland was SOLD OUT and rightfully so. WWE usually comes to the San Jose Arena and skips over Oakland. Oakland loves heels.

Pre-Monday Night Raw Dark Matches

*Jamie Noble pins TJ Wilson (w/ beer bellied valet)-
Wilson, from Toronto, was supposed to be the face but this changed quickly after a “U.S.A.” chant followed by a “Let’s go Noble” cheer that I started. Good 10 minute opener.

*John Morrison pins Goldust (w/ The Miz)
Surprisingly big pop for Goldust. Poor chemistry, short match.

Off-Air Main Event: Street Fight for the WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP

*John Cena pins Randy Orton
Fun 15 minute match that started right after Ted Dibiase was escorted to the back. Some really strong spots with Cena winning with the F-U after two RKO attempts and a microphone shot to Cena’s head.

Notes
-Jericho’s mic was so low that we could hardly hear him talk during the opening sequence.
-John Cena, Randy Orton, and Chris Jericho drew the most mixed reactions of the night.
-Rapper E-40 was in attendance at ringside and the fans were all over him.
-After RAW went off-air, Shane did a little more dancing, and the fans ate it up.
-Tons of William Regal marks in the crowd.
-Kane looked terrible, missing several spots in the 6-man tag. Don’t know how this will play on TV. Tons of Jericho marks in the crowd.
