Once the crowd settled in, it was about 80-85% full. Which is actually sad for a Dallas show but at least it was a very lively crowd.
With all the garbage that's been on RAW this year, Dallas has been very fortunate to get 2 of the best tv matches of the year. We had Cena/Punk in February (it's on the 50 Years of WWE DVD) and of course Orton/Bryan tonight which was outstanding to say the least. There were 4 outstanding wrestling matches tonight. As a paying customer, can't ask for much better.
I know the Rhodes Brothers breakup is coming but I hope they delay it. That team is magic. Goldust especially. They are incredibly over.
Triple H did not do a good job explaining the main event was a non title match. It took about an hour for the crowd to realize it.
HBK was a great surprise. The crowd ate up that promo.
After the show went off the air, Orton went another 10 minutes with Cena & Booker T was special ref. Basic match. Orton got DQed for hitting Booker & Cena with the title, but the faces got their revenge & Booker did a spinaroonie to send the crowd home happy.
