    The only reason I thought it might have been was the announcers' reactions.

    You're right. They did treat it like one. Maybe. I have to see how they treat it next week.

    If he did turn that would be unfortunate. He was good as a face.

    My god that crowd was the best crowd ever. Humming Fandango's theme? Freaking doing a wave!? Chanting things that had nothing to do with anything!? Please god keep up the Raw's and crowds like that, please!

    Also, totally flipped for Ziggler, the BOD and Bryan staring down Shield and Ryback planting Cena.

    The question is the Shield and Taker-Kane-Bryan thing ended on a cliff hanger. Is Taker staying past Wrestlemania? It seems like it.

    I logged on to TV.com and saw you guys had 200+ posts on this site. Holy moly, where were you all during Wrestlemania?! That crowd last night was beyond amazing. Jake, the fans are supposed to be getting the wrestlers over, not yourselves. "We Are Awesome!" LQTM LOL!


    The Ziggler cash in was amazing and I'm glad it finally happened, though it should have probably happened last night at Mania to create an even bigger moment. Oh well, just glad the fans got what they wanted. Yeah Goldenage, looks like Taker might wrestle more than just his usual Mania match. Freaking excited! It's been a while since Taker has wrestled in a match besides just Mania.


    As far as Sheamus and Randy Orton go and the reactions they got from the crowd, this is not either of these men's faults. Both men looked flustered by the reactions and needed to fill 15 minutes of time. If anyone is to blame, it's the creative team and their stupid decision to give the middle finger to the fans after the twitter vote and have them fight anyway. It should have been Orton vs. Big Show culminating in an Orton heel turn, but alas we didn't get that. The New York/New Jersey/international fans gave a middle finger back to the WWE by doing the Mexican wave and yelling ole (reactions typically seen in soccer matches, not for Ole Anderson).


    John Cena, I've learned to respect the guy over the years. People trash on him so much, but he deserves credit for going out there in front of that crowd and taking it in stride. Dancing with the fans singing Fandango, joking with them throughout the night, he knows how to handle a crowd like that. Where as Triple H stayed in the back and is showing up on Smackdown instead where a lot of the international and hardcore crowd might be gone by then. Props to Cena! Apparently the crowd loved him at the end of the night after Raw went off the air too. This is what he had to say...


    ____


    "Heard a lot of chants tonight. Even had a chant for Michael Cole. And, a chant for Justin Roberts. Hell, they even chanted for JBL! (pause for "JBL" chant.) You guys almost know everybody, because there wasn't a chant for Disco Stu - he's the cameraman. (pause for "Disco Stu" chant and cheers.) A lot of chants tonight, but the favorite one I heard was when you told yourselves 'We are awesome.' (pause for "We are awesome" chant.)

    "Indeed you are because you make WrestleMania Moments and you make Superstars. Tonight was a hell of a moment for our new World Hvt. champion Dolph Ziggler. (pause for loud cheers and applause.) And, a special moment for him was made even more special for you because you were excited, you were entertained, and you were active for him in this ring, and for that, we all thank you.

    "The guy (The Rock) who debuted this (new WWE Title belt) couldn't be here tonight (pause for boos), but when he did, he said he wanted to debut The People's Era, and he was right. Because I looked around and I listened tonight. You guys create the stars in this business; you create the energy; you create the atmosphere.

    "I know a lot of vacation days were spent on this weekend; I know a lot of dollars; I know a lot of experiences were had. There is no better way to prove that this belongs to the people. Tonight, I'm giving it to you. (pause for cheers.) We usually end the night by playing somebody's music, because they think we gotta leave with somebody's music. But, not tonight. Because tonight, you are going to play the music. Ladies and gentlemen, I hope you had a great WrestleMania. Take 'em home!" (cue up the crowd humming Fandango's theme music as Cena left to the stage.)


    ______


    Great Raw! Disappointed that we might not be seeing crowds like this until the UK tour in 2 weeks though as the hardcore international fans will be replaced by the usuaul unappreciative dead crowds of some cities. (Barring Chicago and other cities of course though)

    Why the folks were chanting Rob Van Dam's initials is a mystery.

    He was there for the HOF and I guess the fans wanted to give him some love I guess.

    Seems like Ziggler is well liked backstage. Maybe a face change is in order? If not I'd like to see Daniel Bryan feud with Dolph first. Good God I'm drooling at the very thought of it. Here's my list for people I want to face Dolph in his reign.



    1)Daniel Bryan


    2)Kofi Kingston


    3)Chris Jericho


    4)Triple H


    5)A member of the Shield



    I known some of these are really out there, but I think we're in store for some damn good matches with Ziggler as champ.
